Enjoy relaxed Australian dining in an industrial setting at No. 5 Restaurant and Bar. This is a great place to visit on your next date night or with a group of family and friends.

No. 5 Restaurant and Bar is located in an old gem-polishing factory in the inner west suburb of Alexandria. The décor is stylish without being pretentious, allowing you to relax and focus on the delicious food in front of you.

The food here is produce-driven, letting the ingredients do the talking. The seasonal menu features dishes like kingfish, featuring blood orange, fennel and witlof, and black Angus flank with tamarillo and chimichurri.

Alternatively, you can eat from a set chef’s sharing menu that allows you to sample many of the venue’s specialities and share them with your group. Desserts are also available.

No. 5 Restaurant and Bar is a licensed venue. Cocktails, sake, wine and beer are all available.

The industrial warehouse vibe mixed with good music really set the tone for my date last night! I had the share menu ($55pp) with my girlfriend and the food was absolutely on point. I was telling my girlfriend about out meticulously everything was presented, but most impressive of all, I was able to taste mastery over the skill of seasoning. Every dish was consistently seasoned and well balanced. The restaurant's website has a quote from A. Bourdain: "Good food is very often, even most often, simple food." This place has fully lived up to that philosophy. The journey through the 5 course dinner had a subtle hint of Asian fusion, that was not in its visual presentation, but rather revealed on the palate. The food here beats many uptown places in Chippendale and Glebe on my books. Service could be improved but there were no major flaws; I should slap the back of my own hand for being so critical. Overall, one of my best experiences in Sydney. I will be telling everyone about this place.

Food was great - we got the 2-person Chef's Sharing Menu and we were both very satisfied with the combination, order, flavours and pacing of the food.

Loved this quirky rustic venue for our date night. Gorgeous warehouse/factory conversion with good music, an interesting array of food to share whilst sipping some vino (moi) & beer (him). Would also recommend this place for catching up with a group, they have a great lounge area & a decent bar. Main criticism is that it can get quite warm inside.

I’ve been dining here reasonably regularly since their opening night, and haven’t ever been disappointed. The food quality, service and atmosphere are always great and reliable. It’s wonderful to see the venue is now on First Table. I often take clients and guests here to dine, and one consistent issue that the venue might take into consideration is that the menu, while it may be considered artistic, doesn’t clearly delineate between appetiser/entree/main dishes. While the menu does begin listing the smaller share plates, the staff always need to explain the way the menu works, and which meals are considered to be more “main” sized. I can never fault the food, but this unusual menu style is so unusual that it makes it difficult for a regular, let alone for a new guest. A simple line between the plate sizes could alleviate much of the confusion and the need for repeated explanation from floor staff. Short of that, keep up the great work, No. 5!

I only knew of this restaurant through First Table and what a little gem, the service was a little patchy at first, the food made up for it and the service dud get better, ALL three of us were impressed and we will be back with others to share the experience, well done No 5 and First Table thank you both.
