Really good service and atmosphere. The food was delicious, I simply found the portions tiny though so felt like it was expensive for the portion size.

Sydney CBD
About the restaurant
Devine is one of the city’s most established wine bars, on the corner of Market Street and Clarence Street, in the heart of Sydney CBD and a short stroll to the QVB, State Theatre and Town Hall.
Devine is the spot to find tapas, Italian-inspired a la carte and an excellent wine by the glass selection. Long known for it’s popular lunches and after work eats, you’ll see the hustle and bustle of the city coming in to wind down; sinking into the banquettes or sitting up at the bar with some share plates.
Freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters, zucchini flowers and artisan salumi boards might be the best way to start.
Then any of the daily house made pastas, market fresh fish of the day, or the Wagyu Steak are a must!

Choose from over 400 wines on the Award winning wine list at Devine - with 40 available by the glass! European grape varieties and natural wine producers aplenty.

At just a stone’s throw from Darling Harbour, Devine is a must for corporate meals, social & family celebrations

Hands down the best Thai we’ve had in Qld! Staff were attentive and friendly. We had a celebratory family get together and loved the atmosphere , food and ambience with great decor. Only suggestion I’d pass on is to be observant when music stops as the vibe changed and made the place feel ‘empty’ toward the end of our time there. Aside from that small detail, we all look forward to returning to try more dishes and experience Jumbo Thai again!
