A name inspired by new beginnings, floral decor from the likes of a Chanel runway, marble tables from Iran and an ex Momofuku Seiobo chef lands you at The Mayflower in Darlinghurst.
We cordially invite you to Sydney’s chicest new restaurant to have emerged post-lockdown.
Descend the stairs of the Mayflower and find yourself in the main dining area, delighted by the beauty that is the floral decor by Sydney’s first Parisian style floral studio, Don de L’Amour, a glamourous nod to the roots of the past florists of this Art Deco establishment.
Entice your taste buds with a choice between the decadence of Sturgeon Osietra Caviar or Beluga Caviar served alongside creme fraiche, shallots and blinis.
If your dining here for the first time, we suggest designing your own degustation of the menu.
To start enjoy the Scallop Ceviche from Hokkaido topped with caviar and creme fraiche followed by Pickled Root Vegetables, alongside labne and hazelnuts.
Next, enjoy the Ocean Trout Gravlax served on Sourdough bread, fresh horseradish whipped ricotta, salmon caviar and marinated beets.

A delish option for those who are vegan is the Cauliflower, served on top of a curry coconut cream, with puffed rice, hazelnuts and chilli lime leaf.
But the real showstopper has to be the ‘Deadliest Catch’ Fish Of Day! Described as the Wagyu of the sea, Glacier 51, a toothfish found 2000m below sea level, marinated in miso and gently seared to perfection.
With both imagined by a two-hatted pastry chef, don’t stop at just one dessert, enjoy both!
Start with the Meringue with fresh seasonal fruits and end with the luxurious Dark Chocolate Tart, where the eggs have been marinated in truffle and topped with shaved fresh truffle.
The Mayflower is now open, make sure you book a table!
2/303A Liverpool Street, Darlinghurst NSW 2010
Open daily from 7:30am – 3:30pm
