The first and only British female chef to hold three Michelin stars in the UK, experience Clare Smyth’s first and only international restaurant.
Overlooking one of the most breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour from level twenty-six of Crown Sydney, the outstanding delivery of fare has resulted in recognising Oncore as one of the top fifty restaurants in the world from the prestigious La Liste Awards and has been awarded three Chef Hats from the Good Food Guide Awards.
We have a limited number of reservations available, released via our website on a monthly basis. Bookings for October 2023 will be released on 2 August 2023 at 12pm.
The menu at Oncore features a selection of Core’s classic dishes, including the unexpected yet celebrated centrepiece of Smyth’s London restaurant, ‘Potato and Roe’. This signature dish, which pays homage to Smyth’s farming childhood in Northern Ireland, gained recognition due to her desire of combining sophisticated cooking with the simplicity of style.
Oncore will also offer new dishes with a uniquely Sydney flavour, drawing inspiration from the harbour and its surrounds.

Hailing from the United Kingdom, Clare grew up on a farm in Northern Ireland where her passion for food and nature began. Early in her career, she trained in some of the most celebrated kitchens in the world, including Alain Ducasse's Le Louis XV in Monaco. She also worked under Gordon Ramsay for 13 years where she was Chef Patron before opening her own restaurant in 2017 - Core by Clare Smyth in Notting Hill, London.
Clare has received numerous awards and accolades including the World’s Best Female Chef award by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. She is an active member of the international culinary community and has been recognised for her services to the hospitality industry with a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2013.
“I named my first restaurant ‘Core’ as it is from the heart, a seed of something new, and has strong ties to nature. As the new restaurant will build upon the success of Core, it seems fitting to call it ‘Oncore’ — a play on the word ‘encore’ meaning a follow-on performance demanded by the audience.” - Clare Smyth
The team at Oncore share a wealth of knowledge and experience in their uncompromising pursuit of culinary perfection and will work closely with Clare Smyth to evolve the Core offering in its new Sydney location.
Hospitality professional Michael Stoddart joins Oncore as Restaurant Manager, bringing with him a myriad of experience from leading front of house teams in prestigious venues including Bennelong at the Sydney Opera House and Soho House in London. New Zealand-born and raised Head Chef Alan Stuart, has worked in some of the world’s most renowned Michelin starred kitchens including Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Eleven Madison Park and Frantzen.
Clare Smyth’s London restaurant places an emphasis on natural and sustainable food, sourced from local farmers and food producers. With all the extraordinary produce that Australia has to offer, this is something that Clare is excited to replicate at Oncore.
“The quality and diversity of the produce available in Australia is incredible. I look forward to spending a lot of time there further exploring its food and wine regions to create our menu which will showcase the best produce sourced from Australia’s most dedicated farmers and food producers."
The Oncore wine list showcases approximately 800 references with over 3,000 bottles housed in the cellar. A celebration of both the Southern and Northern hemispheres, the list features the best of Australia, as well as wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy, and an extensive and varied selection from the rest of the world.
