Never disappointed at the East. The service is first class, the food beautifully cooked. We had the steamed coral trout scallops in ginger and shallots and a fresh cray with a very light salt and pepper coating which I was unsure about but tasted fantastic....More

We didn't have a reservation but that was not a problem. As it was a cool evening, the waiter turned the heater on for us (we were outside to take advantage of the fantastic view of the Harbour Bridge). The meal was excellent. It was...More

After seeing Vivid my sister and I capped off a great evening with some of the best Chinese food I have tasted in years. The cocktail wasn't too bad either!

This is a kind of place that is difficult to describe. Perhaps it is typical of what you would find in the main tourist location. The service was simply ordinary. We got what we asked for but no more, no personality nor interest in helping...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
