Meat and Wine Co - Darling Harbour



On a cold winters night me and my friend were set for Hurricanes, though due to the wait we opted for Meat and Wine Co.

Unlike Hurricanes, the atmosphere here is quite trendy and high class, though did the food live up to its name?



Pork Ribs $37

The pork ribs were perfectly glazed, but unfortunately over cooked. The meat didn’t fall off the bone *sad face*



Lamb Ribs $29

The lamb was chewy and a bit under flavoured, though it still tasted quite decent. The ribs were accompanied by garlic mash, delicious!

End Notes:
- Nice ambience
- A bit on the expensive side
- Service was great

What a shame, another case of quantity over quality.

We have been to meat and wine co in parra and loved it, i had the kangaroo and it was delicious. but i vaguely remember there were some hit and misses.

With a name like Meat and Wine you'd expect the meat to be the hero and always wonderful. Sad face.

The Meat & Wine Co have been operating for 8 years, and with such high competition in the area, they obviously do a great job. The restaurant is now huge with three levels and they are full every night. Definately not over priced as the portions are huge and the quality is very good. The Wagyu rib-eye is the best, especially with the blue cheese and vodka sauce. Their desserts are amazing also. Extensive wine list, and first class service.
