A gorgeous and quirky date night restaurant in Surry Hills, Saga Bar is inspired by tropical islands and hidden jungles. Offering an escape from the every day, this low-lit venue has a weekly-changing menu of cocktails and an elegant selection of small plates, from caviar-topped blinis to beef tartare.

Bringing a slice of Argentina to the heart of Surry Hills, Porteño is a gorgeous venue fronting floor-to-ceiling windows, original tiled floors and quirky artwork. Premium steaks and fresh seafood are prepared on a traditional barbeque over an asado pit of fire which can be seen through the open kitchen, creating a truly theatrical dining experience.

A gorgeous green oasis away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Sydney, The Winery is home to a fairy-lit courtyard, hidden behind a wall of luscious plants. Top of our list when it comes to romantic restaurants in the city, this charming spot offers a menu of fresh salads, light dishes and signature cocktails, with private igloos for winter dining.

For those on the hunt for romantic restaurants in Sydney with a view, Babylon is one of our top recommendations. The gorgeous outdoor terrace is adorned with pretty festoon lighting and toasty heaters for when the chill sets in. Swing by in the week to feast on Middle Eastern cuisine, from loaded flatbreads to smoked beef short ribs and wood-fired kebabs.
