Welcome to your home away from home; ABODE. Bistro. Bar. A dining sanctuary where you can relax and unwind in comfort, in one of the ultimate hidden gems of Darling Harbour.
Curated by our Executive Chef, Josh Askew and our Chef de Cuisine Vico Betguen, our award-winning restaurant revolves around sophisticated, contemporary Australian cuisine, with seasonal, locally grown and sourced produce. Whether your preference is traditional dining or shared plates, our dishes are designed to bring people together and promote conversation, with innovative menus to cater for all needs and tastes.
The culture of ABODE is the warm, attentive, service excellence that our team provides, enhancing every component of our home from home ethos. Our selection of boutique wine, craft beer or a signature cocktail will complement each and every experience, and can be recommended by a member of our exceptional and experienced team.
Set in an invigorating multi-spaced interior, ABODE draws upon natural earthy tones mixed with striking carpets and wallpaper from film and stage Australian interior designer, Catherine Martin. This unique backdrop sits perfectly against the lattice works of another Australian legend, style maven extraordinaire, Florence Broadhurst. Our restaurant seats up to 60 guests, with a range of intimate lounge areas in the bar and a relaxed and contemporary atmosphere on the deck.
Our team at ABODE are committed to taking care of our planet too and we’ve focused on sustainability and conservation since our doors first opened in 2014. By choosing suppliers who adhere to ethical farming, sourcing produce locally, utilising cooking techniques and materials to cut down on plastic waste, and enforcing efficient and responsible waste reduction, disposal and recycling processes, our entire operation is committed to being friendly to the environment, right down to our recycled menus.
Whatever the season or occasion, there is a welcoming space for all.
