Sydney’s best BYO Restaurants

These days, it seems fewer and fewer Sydney restaurants are offering BYO.  Sad but true, it’s slim pickings.  Just because you want BYO doesn’t mean you will accept a sub-standard resto.  We hear you.

So we decided to come up with a list of our Top 10 ‘quality’ BYO picks (in no particular order).

So, bring along your bottle and (hopefully) save a little cash in the process.  BYO aside you don’t need to sacrifice your culinary experience at these eateries.

  1. PHAMISH
    No nonsense, Vietnamese restaurant with a cool vibe.  Sit on your plastic stool, drink your BYO wine out of a tumbler and bask in the exquisite flavours of Vietnam.  Two words – Duck Pancakes – dee-lish.
    Corkage – $1 per head
