About Mach2

Inner-urban cool restaurant Mach2 is a hipster haven for Sydneysiders looking to escape CBD hustle and bustle. Located on the corner of Clarence and Barrack Streets and spread over two levels, Mach2 is a younger version of older sibling Machiavelli, with a classic 60s feel of original sandstone walls and exposed beams. Take time out of a busy day with a leisurely breakfast at cosy tables under the glow of pendent lights and dine on tempters such as smoked salmon, avocado and ricotta with sourdough toast. Those stopping by later can linger over pasta dishes like housemade gnocchi with gorgonzola or Napoletana sauce; or perhaps crispy skinned salmon with baby spinach and asparagus, complemented by a glass of Italian Prosecco. Vanilla panna cotta provides a sweet finish for dessert lovers.

A few words from Mach2

Mach2 by Machiavelli located on the corner of Clarence and Barrack Streets, is a younger version of older sibling Machiavelli, Mach2 is its diffusion line, the Emporio to its Armani, the Miu Miu to its Prada, as suited to a quick bite on the run as it is to working the levels of power and sealing the deal, with a basement bar oozing a classic 60s feel of original sandstone walls and exposed beams.

We have a long-standing reputation as one of Sydney's number one business district restaurant and function spaces.
It is a rare space over two levels that you can choose the layout that suits your needs from private areas, to the whole place, seated, or cocktail style, catering for your breakfast, lunch or dinner event/function needs.

Italy is, as ever, the guiding star for the kitchen. That could translate on the plate to something as simple (and elegant) as a plate of prosciutto, mortadella, bresaola, olives and bread, a classic caprese salad of buffalo mozzarella and tomato, or something a bit more rib-sticking – pork and veal meatballs on a bed of polenta, perhaps, or grilled fish served with broccolini and a splash of olive oil.

Pasta is, of course, a specialty. Spaghetti Machiavelli, a favourite from the Clarence Street headquarters, contrasts prawns with mushrooms and basil, while the house signature version, the Mach2, fittingly lightens things up, teaming the spaghetti and prawns with the freshness of zucchini and mint. And to drink? Prosecco and Chianti by the glass and Peroni on tap is an excellent place to start.

Mach2 is available for your Christmas function; breakfast, lunch or dinner. We look forward seeing you!
