Recently visited here and was very disappointed. Food was average, service was TERRIBLE. The premium prices they charge are not worth it. Won’t be returning.

this is just on the footsteps to the Opera House, so easy but food is average, so go there for the Great view to Circular Quay, Harbour bridge and Opera house, or just pop bye for a bottle of wine.

This restaurant is super conveniently located near the opera house. The setting is very crisp and clean, and gives off a bit of a flashy vibe. We ordered an egg and mushroom fried rice and stir fried veggies. Both were exceptionally bland, and quite small...More

Its become an upmarket cafeteria style place to me. The food though is still good, and yes of course the location wonderful. An extensive wine list, great. Service is haphazard. There sometimes in large annoying numbers, then cant be seen when you need them! My...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
