Mediterranean
Located in the Casba Complex in Waterloo, Kepos & Co has a beautiful outlook to the gardens transporting you to another world. Chef and owner Michael Rantissi creates his menu based on Middle Eastern classics but with a modern approach. Dishes from the wood fired oven complement the others on the menu. The dishes are all designed to share. Kepos & Co has an eclectic wine list with a strong emphasis on Mediterranean wines. Kepos & Co is a short walk away from its sister restaurant, Kepos Street Kitchen.

we enjoyed the venue but it was noisy and felt cramped. There were people moving around us all the time. It is a real tragedy that restauranteurs feel that they have to cram as many tables in as possible to maximise returns.

Food was amazing, as was the service. Just a little loud tough due to a large party in the middle of the restaurant. Felt like the restaurant was trying to close while we were eating because staff were packing away tables outside and closing the door even though our booking was for 815pm. However the overall experience and the wonderful service from staff will definitely have me coming back!

This place is a winner! great on all levels and we had to rush as we had to get to an event so we were in and out within an hour, but even that restiction they handled so gracefully and easily. Liked it so much my husband is taking his whole team there next week for their christmas dinner.

We had a short trip to Sydney and after reading such great reviews about Kepos & Co, we thought we'd give it a try. Kepos & Co is outstanding. The food is amazing and the service we received was incredible (the complimentary arrival drinks and truffles for dessert was a nice touch!). Highly recommend the ceviche! Definitely worth a repeat visit to Sydney to dine here again.

We are regulars at both Kepos restaurants and love them. We sat outside so and could have a conversation without effort. Service was very pleasant, attentive and courteous, as always. The accidental omission of one of the dishes was made up for with a free desert. Michael’s dropping in is always a highlight, as was his surprise new desert tasting. A great experience, and we will be back before long.

Michael’s menu is always full of flavour, well portioned and authentic. Wait staff are briefed on each dish and are attentive. The Sommelier is very knowledgeable about local and international wines and always willing to allow you to sample before purchase. It’s always enjoyable doing at Kepos and Co.

Just go for the hummus, the only hummus that matters.
The pizzas are good, but their old menu was far superior (to my taste) and I now only go when we have 6pax for family lunches so we can share the pizzas and side dishes. I haven't ordered mains since they changed the menu as they just do not appeal.
Service is always excellent.

Love love this restaurant.
The hummus is outoutstanding and literally prepared at your table and served with the most delicious warm Turkish bread. I have also experienced the set menu which is very generous for a larger group.
This is a little piece of heaven in the middle of Danks st.
Enjoy

Maybe. It is very noisy.
Food quite nice. A bit chilly orientated.
I like to taste the main ingredient without being surrounded by chilly or garlic etc

Food was excellent. Could only get an outside table and the weather wasnt great but as soon as one became available inside we were moved. Very good service. Need a few more salads and lighter food on the dinner menu.

The food - this was one of the best dinner we had. Amazing flavors, exciting dishes (try the carrots in honey) and great potions.

Found this little gem by sheer fluke but so glad we did. We were celebrating a family special occasion and the food was to die for . We shared all meals both entrees and main courses and every dish was superb. A must do in Sydney with great staff.

Our family of six (Four kids aged 15 to 8) had a wonderful experience. The staff were delightful and extremely accommodating. The food was absolutely tasty and the kids enjoyed the flavours as much as us.

Their signature cocktail “Bedouin Caravan”, was probably one of the best beverages I’ve ever encountered.

Highly recommend.

This was my second visit to Kepos & Co. having been introduced to the restaurant by a friend.
The food is fine middle eastern cuisine; clean, subtle flavours with a very engaging tasting menu.
The wine list is interesting and the glass/carafe'/ bottle options work well.
Service is good humoured, professional and unobtrusive.
Good value for money rounds out the quality of the dining experience.

Food was delicious. We had a table outside so was quiet and could all talk. Highlights for the table was the flatbread and labneh, fresh ground hummus, kingfish ceviche and the wagyu flank. Barramundi was also super tasty, and not fishy at all.
