Review: Devon Cafe nail the winter truffle menu yet again (Sydney)

Now that all three of their venues across Sydney (the original Surry Hills location, North Sydney and Barangaroo) are well-established, Devon Café has never been in a stronger position. The highly influential and pioneering café, which arguably bolstered the cities offensive in its ongoing dining rivalry with Melbourne, remains one of the best and most referenced across the city.

For a harbour city like ours, there aren’t many restaurants that can attest to being experts of what lies under the sea. The data is skewed at polar opposites of the graph, we have tonnes of fish and chip shops and plenty of elegant fine dining options. As a result, seafood also seems to come with its own misconceptions due to the dining climate of our city, that it is either deep fried and dirt cheap, or exceptional but expensive. Love.fish aims to occupy the vacant sweet spot in between, a casual-but-chic restaurant that you could patron a few times a week, rather than only for special occasions.... Read More | Share it now!
