House Bar and Bistrot Italian from paddock to plate

House Bar & Bistrot is a new European style Bistrot in Potts Point. Located at the end of Kellett Street, not far from the main strip. The food here is mainly Italian inspired, all made from scratch including the bread and Pastas. This was certainly evident when tasting as the food was incredible. Set up in an old Victorian style terrace, with multiple dining spaces including outdoor, which was lovely to sit at during the evening we visited. It is a good spot to enjoy a drink with some great food.

To drink, there are a number of cocktails to choose from as well as some nice Italian wine. Be prepared as the wine glasses are very generous as are the pours (which is not a bad thing). We also sampled a lovely lemon soda which was very refreshing.

The food here is expertly prepared by Milanese chef Mauro. The appetisers are great for sharing with a range of tasty bruschetta to choose from. The roast pumpkin and thyme atop bruschetta is a classic flavour combination and very enjoyable. It was certainly evident that the bread was made in house as it was superbly fresh.

The food at House Bar & Bistrot is seasonal, with a paddock to plate ethos. The seafood zuppetta is a perfectly prepared medley of cod, squid, pippies and octopus served in a light tomato soup.

The freshly prepared Pork Ragu ravioli was incredible, with butter sauce. This was a high quality pasta dish.

The atmosphere at this restaurant is casual, and on the weekends they have DJ’s and acoustic musicians. They have a small Italian inspired wine list and good food. The portions are a little small and the price a little expensive, which is justified as the food is made from scratch, with great care and precision.
