Allonda is a striking scandi-chic restaurant from the owners of Paddington hotspot NOTA, found tucked away in a Newstead laneway.

With designer minimalist aesthetic, the split-level restaurant is a sleek vision of stone, pale wood and concrete, with a mezzanine private dining room with bar and open kitchen as well as a covered terrace outside.

Diners can take a seat outside, in the downstairs dining room where there is a leather banquette along one wall or at the bar and enjoy a selection of dishes from the raw bar as well as burrata, pasta and a handful of exquisite mains.
