Great location on Circular Quay, inside/outside dining, great views of all the activities on the water and passing foot traffic, but you are securely separated by a low hedge. The coffee is GREAT, we had " Brunch" , The Bruschetta was 10/10. We were seated, greeted and given a choice of where to be seated by very friendly and efficient... More

The waitress was very rude, she constantly talked down to us, and on the whole made ordering a pain. Will never step in here again! Ugh

A Sunday evening pizza for four resulted in 2 pizzas to share at around $28 each. Highway robbery. This included a 10% weekend surcharge. Compare with Dominos which offer far better pizzas at a quarter of the price.

Reviews for this restaurant are varied but our food was good with excellent service. Traditional Italian fare at a reasonable price. The only tables left on the ground floor were by the door so they said we could move upstairs and we were all on our own which was lovely and we could admire the views across the harbour at... More

On the quay, so you can expect a torusit trap place. Not this one. The food was quite o.k. and reasonably priced. Don't get me wrong, this place is nothing real special, it is just not bad (what you can probably risk to find in this tourist area).

Come to this area to visit opera house & harbour bridge. Don't forget to stop in Rossini restaurant, they have a great breakfast menu. I have big breakfast, this's really big. Love it. And my wife have egg florentine salmon, beautifull. We will visit again next time.

One of my favourite coffee shops down in Circular Quay. It's good for breakfast, brunch and lunch. I went there once for pizza's late one evening with friends and we had a great time. Mario is the head waiter there and he's a champion of a bloke. Always friendly and pleased to see me in a very Italian kind of... More

This is a lovely place to enjoy a meal or a coffee while you take in the sights and views of Circular Quay. It's a favourite of tourists and locals alike. The food is great and very affordable. You can have a large group or just want a quiet place to enjoy some solitude. A good meeting place too.

We were attending My Fair Lady at the Opera House and were looking for somewhere to have an early lunch. This place looked fairly busy so we picked it. We were allocated a table by an adequate waitress, then approached by an older man with a menu pad who presumably wanted us to order immediately! We had only just sat... More

What a dissapointing evening. We went in before the dinner rush and was greeted very poorly by the waitress. After our order finally being taken our entrees came out striaght away. I can honestly say I have had better minestrone soup from a cheap suppermarket tin! The portion size was way too big! However when the main came out the... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
