Our iconic location on the corner of William St and Darlinghurst Rd has a rich history. We sit proudly on the border between Kings Cross and Darlinghurst and have some of the best people watching in town.
Our dog friendly terrace is the perfect outdoor area and along with our bar and dining room, stylishly designed and filled with large scale artworks by George Raftopoulos, you can find an area that suits any needs.
We hope to see you at 169 Darlinghurst soon.
Excellent service with a great range of beverages to choose from. Ambience was great and the eggs benedict was yum!
Always the best experience at 169! Will always come back!
Friendly, professional, and comfortable. Sitting inside by a large open window, looking out onto a wall of green trees, dappled morning light, water is immediately brought over, offered a coffee or a drink to start with, and I'm feeling happy. Service like this is the ultimate. Attentive without being obsequious. Great food. All too easy to recommend.
Great service from all the staff, would highly recommend.
It was an amazing girls night with lots of fun. We will be back.
Went for the bottomless brunch! Was amazing!! Thanks guys :D the service was beyond amazing, food was great. Would go back and recommend.
Amazing service, friendly and fun staff!
Perfect with a romantic vibe
Definitely recommend 169. I've always seen it but never went in and now I know I've been missing out.
I'll definitely be back with friends for brunch or if I need a hen location.
The most amazing boozy brunch! Fab food, great drinks and even better staff ! Thank you
Amazing service and relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The waiters were all incredibly attentive and helpful. Food and beverages were delicious and arrives quickly. 10/10 will definitely be back with more friends soon.
A wonderful welcome from the host Charlie who was charming and very accommodating. Food was great and nicely presented and the waiting staff throughout were attentive while discreet. A great brunch all round. And a smashing espresso martini!
Had my birthday celebrations here and had the best time. Food and drinks were perfect and staff were amazing!
An awesome place for bottomless brunch! I chose the wrong brekky dish (brown rice bowl was just rice, asparagus and an egg which I should have read properly) but other people’s food looked great and the staff were excellent - attentive and friendly.
Amazing food amazing service! Went for a bottomless brunch and the drinks were great quality and the staff were tentative. Highly recommend
This was our second time celebrating our shared birthday with the bottomless lunch menu. Last time was great so we booked again. This time: our reserved table was given away so we had to wait for next available table outside. Staff preoccupied having their lunch on the same table so had to order from bar. Bloody Mary and espresso martini’s were not made well and we couldn’t drink them. The small amount of food was not value for money. We paid $80 each plus a service charge which was insulting. We will not be back.
Nice spot for brunch/lunch or coffee. A little cool outside on the day but would definitely visit again.
Bottomless Brunch was great. Couldn’t fault the food or service. Max looked after us well! Thank you.
Was very disappointed with the 'bottomless brunch'
I went with 2 others on a saturday afternoon and it was very quiet with only a handful of other tables. We waited about 30mins to order drinks and had to keep flagging the wait staff down to order another drink and our food. We were given some cut up croissants, the menu said you could select either pastries or frittata - we weren't given this choice. Then after about 40 mins we were able to order something from the breakfast or light menu - so in total I had avocado toast and a croissant and although it was tasty definitely not at all substantial or good value at $69. (This has since increased to $79!) Drinks and cocktails were nice enough but there are other venues providing better value for their bottomless brunches.
Loved it! We loved the food and the friendliness and quick wit of Charlie’s. I would probably come back just to have the experience he provided. Espresso martinis were also a highlight!
For a bottomless brunch I didn't get the quick responsive service I would expect for a free flowing experience.
Absolutely amazing experience will definitely be back!!
Great drinks great food great service. Really really good value for money. Would definitely go again.
Zucchini fritters were loved by all.My chicken rice with chili was a perfect choice, flavoursome and not too weighty. Like a small bill, you'll be smiling. Very cheerful staff too
Fantastic service! Loved the ambiance. You don't leave hungry or thirsty after their Bottomless Brunch!
Really great food and coffee. Busy Sunday morning meant service was a bit slow but this just meant we got to enjoy the great spot for a bit longer
Had a fantastic time, the service was so great! My friends and I will defiantly be back. Keep doing what you’re doing!
Had a fantastic brunch experience with a large party and the staff was amazingly accommodating.
Fantastic from the very beginning. Big thanks to Charlie for the outstanding service and laughs. We’ll be back!
Charlie the host was great! He kept us all happy and even gave us a prosecco on the house. Happy hour was brilliant and the food was great. Would definitely recommend for a friends catch up
Fantastic service, food and drinks. went for bottomless brunch, amazing food and drinks and the waiters/staff were so friendly and helpful
Celebrated a birthday there. On top of bottomless boozy brunch, staff were generous and totally the right amount of nearby.
Highly recommend. Shall return.
Great value and food. Only downside was the slow main course service.
