Mike McEnearney is executive chef and owner of No.1 Bent St. His career began in 1990 in Sydney’s world renowned restaurant, Rockpool. He then worked in Michelin-starred and critically acclaimed restaurants in London before returning to Australia.

In 2011 his restaurant ‘Mike’s Table’ gained cult status and in 2012 ‘Kitchen by Mike’ won best café award in the Time Out Sydney Food Awards. It’s safe to say No.1 Bent St was a highly anticipated restaurant which quickly became established as a favourite on the Sydney dining scene.

The refined yet quirky restaurant has a stripy ceiling and long, bespoke wooden tables. The kitchen island is backed by a large wood-fired oven and one corner is dedicated to fresh, crusty bread and cultured salted butter.

The cuisine is made with Mike’s trademark passion and respect for the process and produce used. Expect dishes created from the ground up; twice cooked goats cheese soufflé with rosemary, spit roast chicken vinaigrette and wood grilled octopus are just some of the dishes on offer. Don’t forget to ask staff for the daily specials, which make creative and unexpected use of the very best ingredients on offer that day.

Complete your experience with one of Mike’s signature wines, or choose from a discerning selection of international sparkling, red and white wines.

We had five dishes to share and every dish was a party in my mouth! The flavours of the food were tantalising, presentation was good too. The service was exceptional.

A lovely relaxed space. The staff were very friendly and helpful in explaining their menu as it was our first visit. Our server made some suggestions on dishes to try and everything was delicious.

Quick and delightful dining before right before our Opera started. The spanakopita and roast peppers were to die for. My guests from Dallas thoroughly enjoyed the calamari and blue-eyed fillet. Salads were fresh and desserts absolutely delicious. I will go back again, no doubt!

The Staff were accommodating and friendly. The food was excellent, very interesting and innovative dishes. Staff were knowledgeable about the dishes and were able to make good recommendations. We ordered the pate, sourdough, prawn eggplant sandwich, grilled beef intercostal, calamari and stracciatella. We enjoyed our evening very much.

We very much enjoyed our night at No 1 Bent Street. The service was attentive, without being obtrusive, our waiter, Peter, was obviously passionate about the food and gave us some fabulous recommendations. We ordered 4 dishes plus bread and some roast potatoes off the blackboard (these were to die for by the way) and this was a plenty for the 2 of us. The scallops were tender and very tasty, the eggplant and prawn “sandwich” was delicious and we downed all of the accompanying broth as it was just too good to leave. The blackened leek formed an excellent accompaniment to the beef dish. We were welcomed with the house special G &T and I also enjoyed a crisp Rose. We left without dessert this time as we had a show to catch but will be back again to explore the menu further. We felt very welcome and left well nourished both in body and spirit. Thanks No 1 Bent St for making us feel so much at home.

Fantastic service from the staff who gave great recommendations and explained each plate in detail. The food amazing particularly the mains - where each individual dish was seasoned and/or cooked to perfection. Definitely try all the seafood plates as they were the highlight for us. I will definitely be back to try more things!

Miscommunication from First table(put me on wrong date), but No1 Bent st. handle this issue hard. Even they tried to make a table for 4 of us, the permited dining time was only 1 hour. Food was great. Nice chicken pate.

Have always wanted to try this restaurant and finally managed to book it on First Table. Loved everything about the restaurant, from the way it looks inside, to how delicious the food was, and especially how the staff handled a dessert that was given to us that wasn’t right. Top food and service. Would go back again.

This was the best dining experience we have had in a long time. The lovely waitress was a natural: attentive, informative, enthusiastic but at the same time gave us the space to enjoy a romantic dinner. The food was absolutely outstanding! We shared a variety of dishes: kingfish crudo, baked scallops, stracciatella, braised prawn and eggplant sandwich, spit roasted chicken and the chocolate mouse. Each and every dish was faultless and delectable. The scallops and braised prawn eggplant sandwich were exceptional! A truly 10/10 dining experience! Well done to all the staff and chefs and thank you very much!

Never have I had such a special experience. From the start until finish, we never felt rushed or hurried. You will find the staff at No 1 Bent Street a rare gem. Their courtesy, knowledge and attentiveness and friendliness is among the best I have seen. You would even appreciate the more when you try the food. The prawn eggplant "sandwich" is a must ! I highly recommend the restaurant to everyone and I will definitely come back to try the blackboard

We had a delicious meal with great service. It is always lovely to dine in a restaurant with professional wait staff and our waiter was the same wonderful person we had last time.

As a bonus we really enjoyed the Red by Mike which was an excellent accompaniment.

Thank you.

A really nice selection of meat and vegetable tapas style plates you share. We had 5 plates between the 2 of us, which was plenty. The Broad beans, lamb and prawn eggplant being the stand outs. Well looked after and great stop over after work. We will be back
