Our meals were very good for lunch. Friendly and efficient staff. Reasonably priced. Nice view around the harbour when sitting outside.

So distinctly average - a great view, run by overworked South Americans. Was dinning alone on business - left for 20 mins for order taking (despite trying to get attention). Finally food came after 48 mins. Wrong steam (T bone not rib eye). No S&P...More

Let's get this out the way first If you like to eat cheap don't come to Sydney. That's Done ! There are no shortage of eateries in Sydney, it's just which one too choose. We chose Searock Bar and could not have been more pleased....More

This part of Sydney is always busy and it's hard to find good value when dining out, We went to a matinee concert at the Opera House and dropped into this place for dinner. As the name suggests, it focuses on seafood(there are meat and...More

$5 for a small coffee is really a bit rich for my blood. Add on 10% weekend surcharge and really it is beyond a joke. Still - beautiful waterfront location and perfect for people watching... Just expensive!

Opted for the $26 prefix. Check out the choices for meals and drinks. My wife ordered fish and chips with champagne. So worth it

Weekend pitchers are $19, by far the cheapest I've found in town thus far. The view of the Harbour is very nice as well. Friendly staff and good food round this place out as a must stop while on the Quay.

What a nice spot to stop for a while. We did just that on Sunday afternoon and so glad we did. Live music was nice not too loud you could still have a conversation. Lovely outlook. Did not eat but saw some of the plates...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
