About Platform 818

First opened in 1855, Central Station was a simple wooden platform with a corrugated iron shed. It serviced the first passenger line in NSW running between Sydney and Parramatta.

Platform 818 pays homage to the history and heritage of the railway system and railway towns in NSW throughout the years. Industrial, rustic, yet chic, it’s ideal for people looking for great times and new adventures.

Hop on board as we take a palatable excursion through time. Experience a modern take on classic Australian dishes made with locally sourced produce from railway towns along the NSW goods line. Enjoy it with carefully crafted high ball cocktails layered with flavours inspired by historic railway stations around the world.

Excellent parking deal for attending theatre. We arrived at 10am, went to 2pm theatre and had dinner afterwards, leaving at 8pm. Very convenient.

Had the pre-theatre meal there, and the service was fantastic. Decent food. We pre-ordered a 3 course meal initially, but got full after the mains and asked if we could not have the dessert and just paid for the 2 courses instead, and was accepted :-). Will be back.

We did pre theatre dinning. It was exactly the type of atmosphere I was hoping for. Not to loud, relaxing, great food and a short stroll to the theatre.

Fabulous service from Natasha and MaitreD. Super fast and fuss free service. Water was kept topped up, extra bread was offered and Natasha checked in with us regularly. Loved that we could preorder before seeing Chicago. Beautiful spot by the window. Garlic prawns were divine.

It was fantastic dinner. We had 2 kids with us and they had been given some drawings to do. Juliet was making sure that everything was served smoothly. She was fantastic and made dinner very enjoyable. Recommended dish was perfect. Very large portioned pasta of the day and it was delicious. Many of the menus were felt very good value for its quality. Thanks. Would visit again for sure.

We dined here a few nights ago and we all loved the food. The portions were generous and the flavours were sensational. The restaurant has a nice ambience and our waiter Ann was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and helped us decide on some amazing dishes. Would definitely recommend to friends & return.

We had conveyed and reconfirmed dietary requirements prior to the event yet these were not properly addressed on the night and we then had to first of all wait an additional ten minutes or so after the other guests at our table received their first entree and then had to discuss our requirements once more when it came to the mains. Then this was a wine dinner and you knew how many guests were involved yet you still managed to run out of the second wine of the night and had to obtain and chill down another bottle to complete the service... that is not good enough either

The meal was disappointing.The second dish the pastry was too hard and should have been Puff Pastry. The main course fillet steak was too overcooked and the truffle mushroom sauce was too dominant. The wines served were very good. The room was far too noisy

Had a great experience at Platform 818. We went there before going to Capital Theatre. All around the service was excellent, Juliet our waitress was awesome. We had a great experience with the Whiskey and Chocolate + the special house gin. Would recommend both. Value for money, definitely. Excellent location. Will be back.

Conveniently located near central station, modern decor and the staff were lovely. However where we sat i found the room was too dark, to the point where even the waitress couldn't read the menu and had to take it to the light. Cocktails were great, and the mains were great. Entree also were delicious , however the portion size for entree was just too small.Overall had a lovely time
