Saint Peter is a globally acclaimed restaurant by pioneering chef Josh Niland. The Paddington restaurant sees him champion Australian seafood, applying unconventional cooking techniques and treatments to offer a must-try Sydney dining experience.

In May 2024, Saint Peter was number 98 on the World's 50 Best Restaurants 2024 long list, affirming its position on the global stage and groundbreaking treatments of seafood. 

The modern and intimate restaurant sees guests overlooking chefs at work from counter seating, plating various species of oysters, Australian prawns and shellfish, line-caught wild fish including John Dory, bonito, and King George whiting and sustainably farmed fish like Murray cod. Often, even desserts integrate elements from the seafood in an amazing showcase of culinary creativity.

Dinner at Saint Peter is offered as a seven-course tasting menu of seasonal picks and available Tuesday–Sunday. A more relaxed a la carte menu is available for lunch Thursday–Sunday, as well as a four-course tasting menu.

Since launching Saint Peter, Niland has opened multiple venues throughout Sydney, including seafood bistro Petermen on the Lower North Shore.

Later in 2024, Saint Peter will move up the road to Paddington’s Grand National Hotel, which Josh and his wife Julie have taken over to relaunch, including the 14-room boutique hotel. Plans also include a separate Saint Peter bar space. Stay tuned for more on the relocation.
