Affinity Restaurant



Affinity is a slick little restaurant and bar that serves up an eclectic menu of Mod Oz cuisine with old-fashioned touches from its airy indoor-outdoor digs in Paddington.

Occupying the spot that once house Simpatico, Affinity brings a fresh casual approach to dining, and makes a great spot to pop in for anything from a weekend breakfast to  lunch, dinner or simply an evening cocktail or glass of wine.

And in a charming blast from the past, the cheese trolley (think First Class airline circa 1980s) has been resurrected for afters. Wheeled out on a vintage trolley are a selection of 5 classic cheeses (Gippsland Brie, Meredith Chevre, Swiss Emanthal, Gorgonzola dolce and Spanish Iberico), crackers, grissini, raisins, port and liqueurs. Diners get to choose from 3 to 5 cheeses which are then plated with the accompaniments and served with a glass of port or liqueur of choice.
