The Grounds of Alexandria

Experience a vibrant market feel with a delicious twist at The Grounds Alexandria, which has become one of the most popular dining attractions in Sydney over the past few years. It draws crowds on the weekends with the delicious markets, take away treats, fresh flowers and fresh bread.

From the moment you walk in, you won’t know where to head first. Our advice is to go to The Grounds really hungry and walk through the entire area before you pick the place where you would like to dine. Each one has its own quirky characteristics. So we are sure you will have an amazing experience no matter which place you choose.

As you walk through or wait for your table (you are given a buzzer so you know when your table is ready), you may come across the famous barn, which hosts a number of animals with quirky names.  Our favourite would have to be Vincent Van Goat.

We are sure you will have a fabulous time no matter what you do at The Grounds!
