Ovolo’s Inventive New ‘Room Service’

Book a hotel room for dinner – staying over optional.

By Terry Christodoulou 15/05/2020

Unless you’re a food critic or rather well-connected (ahem), reality is you’ve  missed out on securing a decent dining table given the tight new restrictions that see many Sydney establishments start to reopen.

Enter Ovolo and its iconic harbourside property at Woolloomooloo, which today launches an inventive new offering – hotel rooms as individual dining areas.

The concept means diners can do the right thing in regards to maintaining necessary levels of isolation – while enjoying food from the acclaimed Alibi Bar and Kitchen.

The so-called ‘Restaurant In Room’ will run Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights – with the option to add an overnight stay.

The offered five course meal means menu favourites such as spicy udon, kimchi dumplings and activated charcoal ravioli, among others. All with views from the iconic wharf over the harbour to the Botanic Gardens and Mrs Macquarie’s chair.

Our preferred option, the well-appointed Ultraroo Suite, also comes kitted out with its own bar and “socially distant” bartender.

Limited bookings are now available, prices from $130 (five course dinner for two) and from $269 for an overnight stay. The Ultraroo Suite is $999.
