Australian
acre is a farm-to-table restaurant located within Camperdown Commons; a community initiative on the site of the former Camperdown Bowling Club. Our goal is to create a consciousness about the effect of everyday food choices. We aim to achieve this by providing a sustainable menu focused on transparency, seasonality & traceability.

We support and partner with a small collection of local farmers and producers who are passionate about their product. The animal proteins we use have always been ethically reared, and we only select in-season Australian fruits and vegetables, and not necessarily the pretty ones.

​Ultimately we want to serve you beautiful food that hasn’t traveled far to be on your plate, that tastes as fresh and delicious as it possibly can, because it’s been produced in
the right way.

Limited set menu due to Covid restrictions but great choice, with vegetarian options, and plenty of food. Great friendly service. Would definitely return.

Selection on the menu isn't large and fairly simple.
Would have liked for there to be a little more to choose from.
Quality of the food is okay, but would have expected more for the price.
Okay for a night out, but don't expect anything mind blowing.
Kind of like going to an over priced pub.

Really lovely restaurant, in terms of setting and service. Didn’t realise it was a set menu when I booked. Understand that might be due to covid and keeping things simple but it was a very limited choice menu. Food was ok.

We have eaten there more than any other local restaurant. The food is always delicious. We had a set menu (party of 10) as they have just reopened and numbers limited. Only downside was the generous servings - not all of us could face the compulsory dessert !

Excellent food, service and ambience. Quiet and not too busy post COVID. It the cheapest lunch (set menu 3 course for $70pp), but well worth it.

Family lunch for 2 adults and 3 children 6-12 on Acre's second post lockdown day

Some things were different: e-check in, mandatory details left for contact tracing, hand sanitisers, set menu

But what wasn't different was the high quality and locally sourced ingredients, put together in innovative and interesting ways, prepared to their usual high standards and with friendly, efficient and knowledgeable service

We're keen to see how the new Acre evolves and continues to bring together it's high standards and traditions to this post COVID-19 dining environment

Mixed quality of meals. Disappointing that the chicken had run out. The fish was overcooked. The quiche was delicious. Desserts the same Black Forest was dry and mostly Inedible, the mango and coconut cake was great.

This is a fantastic spot to enjoy a meal together in a great atmosphere. It feels like the kind of place that you can relax and enjoy an evening with friends. It is a balance between a young foodie place and a classic restaurant that the whole family could enjoy.

Impressed by the use of reasonably local and also some bush fire affected areas for sourcing ingredients. Having the kitchen garden is also a great food-mile reducing strategy. Good but not extensive menu choices, good wine list and a couple of local craft beer option on tap and packaged.

Service was dreadful. While the wait staff were pleasant enough, it took four goes to get water to the table. The food arrived at different times for different guests. And then adding insult to injury, you charged $20 for a bourbon and coke - outrageous. Also automatically applying a $4.50 fee onto the bill (assuming all your guests are paying by credit card/eftpos).

Food was ordinary to say the least. It all used to be very good so not sure what has happened over the last couple of years.

Although I have always enjoyed Acre, over the past few years the service has been getting progressively slower. A group of four of us went on Friday night, and although the food was fine, service (both in terms of our pre-dinner drinks, and of the food itself) was terrible - very, very slow. Our wait-person, Jess was very apologetic, and I got the feeling that the kitchen were struggling to cope. Although we were offered free dessert as compensation we couldn't bear the thought of waiting any longer so just had coffee and left - three and a half hours for drinks, entree, main and coffee. A disappointing evening, I thought.

I will start by saying the food here was really really good. Unfortunately, that is where the positive ends. The service was beyond disappointing, we arrived at 7pm and were sat by whom I presume was a greeter as we never saw him again, he took our water order and said someone will be with us soon. 15 minutes later we still had no water and no waiter.
At 19 minutes a waitress turned up to take a drink order, apologised about the water and took our 'arrival' drink order, thankfully a drink server arrived within a few minutes with our sparkling wine.
The waitress returned to take our order, and when the entrees arrived the bread (which they charge $4 per person for) had still not arrived so it was quickly found and brought out.
The tomato carpaccio style starter was delicious, I have no idea where the tomatoes were from but they were full of flavour.
Mains were next and again the food was full of flavour, though the mashed potato was not mashed more smashed, but hey its potato so it was still good, and the pumpkin was truly some of the best pumpkin I have tasted.
It should also be noted that the restaurant layout is one large room seating around 100 people where noise bounces of windows, this is not a place to go for a romantic dinner.
Unfortunately for me, the service was below acceptable and that is why I would not recommend acre.

First of all, we loved the food! But, the service was the slowest I can remember at any restaurant in Sydney. We waited a minimum of 25 minutes for each drink and after the first course, which came very quickly, we waited for each of the following courses for over half an hour after we had finished each course with our plates from the previous course on our table until the next one arrived
