Dining room at Sepia, Sydney, australia

Sepia Restaurant Review

: Located at the intersection of tourist and business-end Sydney, Sepia is ideally placed to serve all comers. While the name invokes thoughts of a neutral shade, the food is more textural (think crispy, crunchy, silky, creamy) with color splashed around as highlights. Martin Benn is a highly experienced chef and in this latest liaison he has teamed with premier seafood provedore, George Costi. It’s inevitable then that seafood is on the forefront of the menu. Given the Japanese angle, bonito features in sashimi, but not as many know it. Here it may come with green apple, sheep’s milk yoghurt and saké. A seasonally and weekly-changing dégustation menu is available for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights, and lunch on Saturday, available with matched wines. Other meals offer à la carte or a seasonal four-course menu and a dégustation that differs to the weekends. As the food warrants, the wine list is diverse and constantly evolving. Dining is also available in the moodily-lit wine bar where the restaurant or separate bar menu is available.
