Incredible meal. Perhaps the best that I have had and I have been to several on the top 100 list. Perfect service - involved, precise, and very friendly. The wine list is excellent and sommelier knowledge could not be higher. Each dish very well executed...More

I had been waiting to dine at Quay for quite some time and it was good, albeit slightly underwhelming. On a positive note, the views of the harbour were second-to-none and the desserts were amazing. I had the 'eight textures of chocolate' and my husband...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
