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

The menu was excellent, a place where you take your time to make a selection. Service was superb and very attentive. We sat inside as it was a bit muggy but still had a good view. We went there as friends recommended it to us so we recommend it to others.

The set menu for $65 is a winner. We went prior to settings the Reds flog the Waratahs. The seating was perfect for two in a private corner. Food was fantastic value. One dish alone would have been $65 at some other restaurants that shall remain nameless near James St. Service was attentive and professional. And not too much of you know what I mean. Highly recommended on the big 3 of value for money, food and service.

About the restaurant
Hospitality Heavyweight Scott Imlach has teamed up with Head Chef Sam Sheehan to bring a modern take on classic Asian street food to the Gold Coast. A staple in the local dining scene since early 2016, the laid back alfresco eatery has proven its timeless flavours to locals and guests alike.

Centrally located on the outskirts of vibrant Broadbeach, with cocktails that delight, and a menu that will take you straight to a side street of Vietnam, it is a must when it comes to Asian dining on the coast.
