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 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.

This was a little hidden gem, service was great, restaurant had plenty of space and a nice ambience (was a busy Christmas lunch session) and the food was exceptional, really beautifully balanced and an interesting variety for all palates.

Thank you first table and No 1 Bent street what a great partnership! We had a wonderful time, the food was the best I've had in a long time and the service was exceptional, with a relaxed and modern vibe.

We loved our experience at No 1 Bent Street! Was a real fan of Kirchen by Mike in Rosebery and was so sad to see it go! Finally got a chance to come here and loved every second - the beef is amazing amongst all other dishes - we can’t wait to go back! Telling all my friends !

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

Thanks to the team at No1 Bent Street by Mike. Its was a Friday Girls Night Out and the 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed dining in your restaurant. Thank you to the waiter that served us, as it was her first day and she did really well. We had a lovely time and really enjoyed all the food options! Thanks for a great experience.

A great atmosphere. Staff very attentive. Food was well presented and tasty. Lamb was very tender. My favourite was the scallops. Just about melt in your mouth, so yum. Nice to share the plates to get a variety.

From start to finish our dinner at No.1 Bent street by Mike was fantastic.
my friend and I shared several dishes all of which were super tasty but the lamb deserves extra special mention, perfectly good and full of flavour.
As mentioned, everything being so yum meant that we ate more food in this one sitting that we needed to but i cant honestly say we have no regrets. Ill be back, also our waiter was very charming and warm which just made the experience that much better
this place is a winner

Greeted with a smile then given a great wine list & instead of just explaining wine told what food would match
All of which was even better than the description so make sure you book quickly as I’m sure there won’t be many tables available when word gets out

It'd be nice if they could change the menu around more often. This is our 4th visit and we have tried almost everything on the menu. It'd be good if they could include the daily specials with the discount too.

The menu had changed since I last visited but everything was spot on. The eggplant was something else - amazing fusion! Service was impeccable and made the experience even more amazing.

The food was good and tasty, my favorite was the egg-plant with prawns and the beef. Service was very nice and the waiters were always keen to suggest what to order. However, if I would have to pay full price for this food I would consider twice. Still very happy with the first table food, service and price. P.S. The coffee was great too.

Food was excellent. Table service was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend the lamb shoulder - yum, yum, yum. And the burnt orange tart was sensational. Best to go for share plates instead of a la carte. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic dining experience at No.1 Bent Street by Mike. The service was excellent and the food was impeccable. We ordered the scallops which were incredibly fresh, the stracciatella salad complimented the richness of the pot roasted lamb shoulder, the BBQ octopus and twice baked goats cheese souffle were delicious. Would highly recommend No. 1 Bent Street!

What an enjoyable lunch. Service was relaxed and informative, the setting has an open warehouse ambience with a kitchen open to the view of all. We had 9 dishes, loved the intercostal beef, oysters, lamb, octopus and even the bussel,sprouts. The Beetroot and walnut dish... Well 8 out of nine still rates well.Will go back for seconds.
