This was one of the best meals we have had in Australia! The food was just perfect we had the ocean trout. It was truly amazing. The chef prepared it with crispy skin and a lemon relish! We also enjoyed the yellow fin tuna pizza with a spice chilli oil! And enjoyed the truffle ravioli! To finish the night we had the chefs special lemonchello taramisu. Truly a must try. And our waiter was fantastic his recommendations were on point for us and made us feel so welcome and cared for! Seriously a fantastic experience.

Busy place after the working hours in the CBD, but still a very attentive and nice service. Our waiter had good skills to recommend wine, too. Great place to dine out in the city.

David, our waiter, made the experience. He was such a delight. The beef cheeks with potato purée stole the show. The Pan fried mackral wasn't to my taste but a good healthy option. We will definitely be back and have already recommended the bistro to friends and family.

The staff were extremely friendly and the food was utterly delicious. I went with my friend and we were given a lovely table in the corner where we enjoyed risotto, pear and rocket salad and a half chicken. We finished with a shared creme brulee and a dessert riesling. Heaven.

We had a beautiful evening, and were very well taken care of by our French waiter David.

The steak was up there with the best my hubby and I had ever eaten - mouth watering goodness! My mushroom ravioli was delicious, as was the rocket, pear & walnut salad

Fabulous service and attendance, the first table deal was acknowledged and welcomed upfront by the server so there was no awkward exchange to let the restaurant know. The food was delicious and I am already looking forward to taking more friends with me to try the rest of the menu.

It was my first time in this restaurant. It is located in the atrium area under the Deutsche Bank building at the street (Hunter & Phillip) end. The food was delicious. We had 3 different entrees and a pizza. We had the special salmon rolls which I adore and hardly any cooks anymore.
The service was professional and friendly - these guys just look like they care. It's a modern venue and yet we had a seat inside away from the bar area which was cozy and comfortable.

I eat out at least 3 to 4 times a week in Sydney consistently and I must admit I have started to feel jaded about our restaurants, the food they serve and prices. So it is great to be impressed with an eatery that ticks all the boxes.

I highly recommend this First Table restaurant. I would certainly return if it is not with the First Table. Could not fault it - 5 stars.

Girls night out was better then expected. The Mordeo Bar was buzzing with office workers enjoying their Friday night drinks. We had a beautiful 3 course dinner, of Corn fingers, Pork Belly, Hanger steak and Beef cheeks and the delicious Greek honey balls and Brûlée.
Quiet ambience inside to enjoy this wonderful night out, with great service.

Had a great time at Mordeo Bistro & Bar,
Located within 126 Philip st, a short walk from Martin Place, it's easier to find the restaurant from Hunter St.
Service was prompt and professional and the food was lovely. Would go back again.
The Pizza and Pastas were delicious, however the clear winner for the night would be the beef cheeks.

The service was excellent, fast, efficient, personable - first rate, and the food great. Good wine list, pleasant atmosphere. A little loud but hard to manage the acoustics in the courtyard. Thoroughly recommend Mordeo. Not my first visit, and I will definitely be back.

Lovely little spot - the beef cheek stew was so tender and lovely ! Hats off to the chef. I didn't try the pizzas but they smelled amazing. Will be coming back to try more of the menu for sure.

Jennifer Harrington

Food was mixed but delicious. We had the ribs and then the squid to start.
Exceptionally salty but still pretty yummy.
Beef cheek for main was fantastic and huge! Truly delicious.
Partner got the sausage and fennel pizza - this was average.
The mains and starters/shares were well thought out however the pizza element felt like it was to cater for the after work crow.
Went Friday evening and it was pretty noisy with atmosphere of all post work drinkers.
Fun but not a quite date.

First kudos goes to our waiter for being friendly, helpfulall and all about service. He made sure we got out drinks order in just in time for happy hour and helped us out with his recommendations for the evening. Food was amazing, we had more than our tummies could handle and cannot believe how little we paid for all this! Great place, great deal!

A friend and I enjoyed dinner at Mordeo last Friday. It was our first time there. Outside was very busy with the after-work crowd enjoying a few drinks. The food was delicious. The service was friendly without being intrusive and we weren't rushed.

From the welcome to the food - excellent. This restaurant serves food (great food) and they do not skimp because you are a first table client.

What a wonderful meal we had at Mordeo! I was a little nervous at first because the bar was buzzing, but we were ushered into a fairly intimate section for dining. We barely noticed the happy hour noise! It was the perfect setting for a date night. My squid entree was good but I fell in love with my husband's pork ribs. I usually steer away from ribs because they always seem to be covered with a sticky sweet glaze, but these had a crispy salt and pepper-style coating instead. So crunchy on the outside, yet fall apart tender inside. My wagyu steak was perfectly cooked to order and the cafe de paris butter a delicious accompaniment. I can't rave enough about the polenta chips though. I've never had polenta chips so soft in the center, yet crisp on the outside. My husband also gave his pizza a big thumbs up. A fantastic experience!
