Feeling hungry after walking around the quay and checking out the passengers boarding a cruise ship, I walked past a nice looking eatery. As it looked pleasant my wife and myself decided to give it a go and have some lunch. We were seated in a outside area . I ordered a spaghetti marinara , my wife ordered barramundi and... More

After reading all these terrible complaints and negativity, why isn't anything being done ???? Are the owners interested in their bussiness or are they just in it for a quick buck. To me the most important part of running a bussiness is the people, and almost every complaint here is to do with the staff, not so much the food.... More

Visiting with a young family and elderly mother. While some might consider the price of meals and drinks a little high (it is a prime people, ferry and cruise ship watching location), service was exceptional. Also the food was actually nice and a reasonably large serving. Courteous waitress organised additional glasses and plates to split kids meals. Also parked the... More

Had breakfast here this morning with my husband before heading home from a short city stay. Bacon and eggs were nice and quite a large serve. Such a shame the waiter hadn't been as pleasant, gruff and often bordering on being rude. Smiles cost nothing, but can add a lot to someone's day. It's nice to start the day with... More

The service was friendly and the entrée was wonderful, but that's where it ended! With the drinks included in the exorbitant $350 price, it was clear that the waitstaff had been told not to offer drinks. Not once did anyone ask us if we wold like another drink. When we did manage to catch the staff's eye and order, it... More

Had a coffee and blueberry cheesecake, and shared a tiramisu. Best ever, will definately go again. Very friendly and helpful staff made our experience even better. Sat and watched the ferries arrive at the Quay.

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.

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.
