A person stands out front of Le Foote restaurant in The Rocks.

Swillhouse, the hospitality group behind Restaurant Hubert, The Baxter Inn, and Alberto's Lounge, has finally opened Le Foote—and it's been a long time coming.

The group first announced they would be taking on the historic Phillip’s Foote pub in The Rocks in October 2021. It was the end of Sydney's months-long lockdown, and the group hosted a brief summer pop-up in the venue to celebrate. Since then, we've been waiting with bated breath for Le Foote proper to open its doors.

Once a sailors’ bar, a customs agent, and a stable, the historic site became a pub in the early 1970s—and now—Swillhouse has imagined a sprawling European garden restaurant and Mediterranean grill, complete with a wine bar, al fresco terrace, and waiters in bow ties.

Heading up the kitchen is Stefano Marano (ex-Apollo), and you can expect to see delicious delicacies cooked over the charcoal grill. As for wine, it is a hero piece at Le Foote with 300+ bottles on show from Europe's sunniest spots (Crete, Morocco, Sardinia).

There's also a banana daiquiri queued up on the cocktail list—which has us wondering if the daiquiri making a comeback. At any rate, if you aren't doing Euro summer this year, it sounds like Le Foote will be the cure to your FOMO.
