"We had dinner at the Alexandria restaurant last night and I just wanted to write and thank you for what is always a lovely experience for our family. We come pretty often with our 2yr old and 6yr old sons, and I can honestly say that you are the only restaurant in Sydney that makes us feel completely comfortable about having the kids with us. Somehow you manage to strike a magical balance between giving us, the adults, a sophisticated dining experience and also giving the children a place where they feel comfortable and at home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your excellent food and service! We are so immensely glad that we live in Erskineville and have you as our local place to eat!

"I recently spent a week revisiting old haunts in Sydney and most mornings made my way down to Alexandria by train and on foot to breakfast at Bitton with my old neighbours — as had been my habit virtually every morning when I lived there. I'd been doing this ever since David Bitton first opened in the 'hole in the wall' shop premises, which is now the private dining area. The minute I sat down on my return visit, despite an absence of nearly two years, my long black and tall glass filled with ice for my water appeared on the table within seconds. While this says something about my predictable habits, it says far more about the level of personal attention David gives to each of his customers — and has clearly trained his staff to deliver as well.
David is still there on most days attending to his customers with the same diligence as the day he began. Many of his customers think of him as friend and I, for one, am delighted to witness his growing success. Because I know it is not just based on an entrepreneurial nature and a good head for business but good old fashioned attention to quality, detail and service. Bitton values his customers.
I realise that most restaurant reviews focus on food in detail but the fact that I dined daily in the same cafe for a decade should tell you all you need to know about that. The food is sensational, the service friendly, attentive and flexible.
Moreover, David, his family and all the neighbours I came to love make this more than a dining experience for me. Being at Bitton feeds my soul as much as my belly.
I heartily endorse this precious place." John, March 2017
"Thank you. It was a wonderful night. Everyone on arrival couldn't stop complimenting how the terrace looked. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. The wait staff were amazing. Nicholas the head waiter, I think was great. If you could convey our thanks to all of the wait staff on the night please. My wife had a wonderful time. It was everything she hoped for and more. It made her celebrations very memorable. Thank you." Paul, May 2017
