Enjoy a share plate in the heart of historical Sydney
On a recent visit to Sydney I had lunch at Pony Dining. This restaurant is in the heart of The Rocks, on the corner of Argyle Place and Kendall Lane.
Inside Pony Dining is spacious, with warm wood-tone décor, stacked logs and cow-hide furnishings. A large, open kitchen further enhances this warm ambience. Service was friendly and efficient. I really got a sense of the early days, especially when I sat outside at the long table, facing Kendall Lane — Sydney's oldest cobblestone lane. Great for people watching, too.
Pony Dining menu
The menu includes a variety of share-plate options (perfect for the long table), as well as seafood and pasta dishes. Meat lovers are well catered for with several choices available from the wood-fire grill. Prices range from: Entrée and share plates $9–$25, mains $24–$40, and steak by weight $24–$80. Pony Dining has a fantastic wine list, too, either by the glass or bottle.
I had the following dishes: ½ dozen Oysters (Natural), Grilled Chorizo with tomato and chilli jam, Roasted Pork Belly with shaved fennel; washed down with a glass (or two) of Spanish sparkling wine.
