Firedoor specialises in using seasonal ingredients and cooking everything with wood.  The restaurant has two wood-fired ovens, three grills and a wood-burning hearth.  Different woods are used to impart subtle flavours to their dishes.  

With an open kitchen plan, customers can see their meals, as they are being prepared.

A recent review had this to say:

“This restaurant made dining out exciting again.  We immediately felt relaxed and in a warm cosy place like we were in the mountains.  The service and attention to detail on every move was refreshing to see.  Cutlery and plates were replaced at every course and each dish was incredible…”

With reviews like that it’s no wonder Firedoor continues to be one of the top restaurants in Sydney.

There are so many great restaurants in Sydney, that any list is going to leave something out. The Australian Tourism Bureau has put together its own list.
