REVIEW

Restaurant Hubert has always been a good time, but in a post-lockdown world the underground bistro positively fizzes with excitement, sparked by diners desperate for a little escapism. The mahogany-panelled staircase acts as a Tardis, transporting you to another time and place. Downstairs, the jazz-soaked dining room crackles with electricity as highly enthused diners settle in for martinis, oysters and more martinis. Take a breath and settle yourself long enough to order escargots with XO butter and wagyu tartare, perhaps followed by the Murray cod or chateaubriand. Don't forget the frites! And wine! Never mind a glass, bring the bottle… Did you remember the frites?! French bistros are having a moment in Sydney but none will leave you quite as invigorated as Hubert. Is it the best French food to be found in Sydney? Perhaps. Is it the most fun you can have dining out? Unequivocally yes.
