Restaurant Reviews


60 Bayswater Rd Rushcutters Bay, Sydney, NSW


An evening at Acme is like kicking on at your mate’s place after a big night out. There’s Drake and Cardi B on the stereo. Staff greet you like the party couldn’t start until you got there. And the best part? Your mate’s a banging cook whose combinations blow your mind. On the menu, beef and black bean sounds like it’ll be a Chinese takeaway cliché. On the plate, it’s a riot of wagyu carpaccio, fresh scatterings of carrot, red chilli and fermented black bean, held together improbably but effectively with crème fraîche. The signature pig’s head macaroni brings Italian and Filipino flavours together in a way that makes you wonder why they don’t share fork-space more often. The tables are small and so is the wine list – but then again, so are the prices. Bottom line: you’re among your new best friends here, eating their very good food, and you’re in for a proper good time.
