On a residential corner block in the charming backstreets of Paddington, it’s hard not to fall in love (or at least, lust) with Ursula’s. A few other celebrated Sydney restaurants were in the same space over the years, but this latest iteration has a very distinct, bistro-influenced feel. Ursula’s spills over two elegant floors and is filled with sunlight, making it perfect for a long, romantic lunch, although dinner here is fantastic too. The menu features produce-driven dishes using European techniques with Australian flavors, like handmade pasta with Moreton Bay bugs, beef carpaccio, and steamed blue-eye trevalla or a roast lamb with green curry vinaigrette. Desserts are beautifully constructed (the pandan custard with coconut meringue and pineapple sorbet was our favorite on a recent visit) and worth leaving room for.
