Wine Rooms by Harvey Leigh's - Review

Harvey Leigh

A cosy, Provence-inspired bistro and wine bar by one of Australia’s best sommeliers, Dan Wegener, Wine Rooms by Harvey Leigh’s is a new 55-seater with the same deep focus on grapes that Wegener brought 
to Quay (Sydney) and Print 
Hall (Perth), only the vibe is more fun dining than fine. While pinot and chardonnay fans go gaga over the wine list, young Provençal import Loic Sorbier keeps things fuss-free and tasty in the kitchen. “Bread & condiments” (charcuterie, cheese, pickles) and a basket of salty, porky treats are the stuff 
of wine-snacking dreams, 
while cabbage parcels stuffed with pork and carrot are typical of the more substantial stuff. Dessert? Do it – the tarte Tatin with almond praline and vanilla ice-cream is pure comfort. 

Open Friday-Sunday for lunch and Wednesday-Sunday for dinner
