A temple to tequila and tacos, Bar Patron brings an air of sophistication to Sydney's sour cream-dolloped Mexican dining scene.

Located in the old Café Ananas spot in Circular Quay, the venue comes courtesy of Rockpool Dining Group.

The interiors, designed by Grant Cheyne, channel a Mexican country estate with tan leather seating, potted succulents and a decorative ceiling with cut-out detailing.

Patrons of Bar Patron can choose from one of the well-dressed dining tables and a spot at the Carrara marble bar, which boasts beautiful views over Sydney Harbour.

Bar Patron's menu includes all the Mexican classics — tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas and empanadas. Plus, there are a heap of dishes made to share.

Drinks-wise, despite the extensive offerings, you really do need to try the margarita, which is shaken with lime, sherbet and Silver, Roca or Platinum Patron tequila. Served in a copper-bottomed old fashioned glass, the drink is beautifully balanced, strong but not too sweet, with a thick, crusty salt rim.

If you just won the lottery (or you're bad with money) then go ahead, treat yo'self to Bar Patron's Millionaire's Margarita. The top tipple, which is priced at $100 (holy guacamole) is made from the ultra premium Patron Gran Burdeos tequila, Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac, liquid nitrogen chilled finger lime pearls and freshly squeezed lime and agave juice. Served in a martini glass, it's decorated with 24-karat-gold leaf and a gold Patron bee ornament.
