Expect a fine-dining service


Set back from busy Victoria Road at Rozelle is the acclaimed multi-award winning 3 Weeds Restaurant. I have heard great reviews about the place (it has been named 'Best Restaurant in a Pub in Sydney and Surrounds' four years in a row), and I was keen to check it out.

3 Weeds Hotel Unique Pub Bars Restaurant


It was a hectic day at work for me and I was behind schedule, so I felt so fortunate when we were able to get a car space near the pub restaurant.

Warm Restaurant Dining Atmosphere


3 Weeds Restaurant is an elegant, spacious and inviting place, particularly with the soft lighting. Our reserved table was at the back with a lovely garden view to the outdoor terrace. After settling down, I returned to a relaxed frame of mind.

Value for Money - $55 for 3 Courses Menu


The service was quite remarkable. We were warmly greeted and welcomed by the staff and offered an informative introduction to the set course. After perusing the modern European menu, we decided to have the $55 three-course menu.

Freshly baked bread roll


Soon after we were offered some lovely complimentary house-baked breads.

The first entree to arrive was the Smoked Mackerel Salad. The smoked mackerel pieces were artfully surrounded with fresh watercress, pickled vegetables and topped with crunchy potato gaufrettes. It was served on a creamy horseradish cream fraiche base.

Entree - Smoked Mackerel Salad $18


The salad was presented on a heavy stone tile and looked like a piece of art. This was not a large serve but the fish was fresh and complemented well with watercress. The taste was quite light and refreshing.

Ricotta & Reggiano Gnudi $18


The second entree for the evening was the Ricotta & Reggiano Gnudi. I was about to order something completely different because I did not understood what a 'gnudi' was.The waiter kindly informed us that they were essentially 'giant gnocchi' and I was really glad I checked with him, as it turned out that this was the best dish for the evening.

That Parmesan Brittle was absolutely amazing!


There were 3 gnudi and the taste of ricotta and reggiano cheese was very distinctive. Together with the sage, burnt brown butter and blistered tomatoes, it was a flavoursome dish. The white anchovies and the parmesan brittle on top were my favorite.

I love my potato and I could not resist when I saw duck fat roasted kipfler potatoes as a side dish on the menu.

Side - Duck fat roasted kipfler potatoes $10.00


These baby kipfler potato chunks were roasted in duck fat with a scattering of herbs. We both commented that these potatoes were magnificent and so addictive. It was no wonder I could not finish the main, I practically finished the side dish all by myself.

The main dishes here are quite simple but also simply perfect and decidedly elegant.

Main - Berkshire Pork Neck $34.00


I ordered a Berkshire Pork Neck and it was served with sauté farro, braised celery, romesco and garnished with spiced pork scratchings.

The good quality pork was presented in discs with delicious braised celery. Plenty of chunks of pork scratchings gave this dish a real 'porky' flavour.

Grilled fish fillet in broth with scallops $36.00


My friend's main dish was the grilled fish fillets in winter scallop broth. The soup-base was hearty on a cold winter night but we did not enjoy the grilled fish as much, largely because the fish fillets were soaked in the broth and we prefer a crispy texture to our seafood.

Dessert was next and I was not sure how we made room for it, but I'm certainly glad that we did.

Dessert - Sheep's milk yoghurt sorbet $14


My friend's dessert tasted really refreshing after a heavy meal. The sheep's milk yoghurt sorbet was extremely silky smooth and it tasted lovely with sprinkles of watermelon granita and mixed raspberries and blueberries .

Formage d'Affinois $12


I ordered a cheese platter to share. The soft creamy cheese was accompanied with fresh apple, crispy lavosh crackers and divine truffle honey. It was the perfect way to finish a lovely evening.

We thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience here at 3 Weeds Restaurant. I am sure your tastebuds will be surprised and will experience something quite spectacular here as well.
