Fratelli Paradiso

$$$$+61 2 9357 1744

This cafe, restaurant, and bar has been serving classic Italian food on the sidewalks of Potts Points since 2001. Come for a coffee and pastry while you read the paper and pretend to be a local, or settle in for a long lunch or dimly-lit dinner. The menu is scrawled on a blackboard inside and often includes dishes like calamari fritti and housemade scampi pasta. Order a spritz and work your way through the long wine list, or get the waiter to surprise you with something that’s already open. Don’t leave without a plate of the boozy tiramisu.

Restaurant Hubert

Head to Hubert for excellent French food in what feels like a glamorous European mansion.

Ester Restaurant & Bar

Almost everything you order at Ester is going to come out of a wood-fired oven. It’s all great, but make sure to get the oysters and sausage senga.

A Paddington mainstay with excellent Italian food and an even better wine selection.
