A great dining experience with amazing views. The menu was a little pricey for what you get, but that is to be expected.

This is the place to take visitors from overseas or to celebrate an important occasion. The booking was made well in advance so a table for our group could be fitted in near the windows to take advantage of the beautiful view. The food is quite pricey, everyone enjoyed their meals. The website menu was what was presented to us,... More

The restaurant is situated high up in the Shagri-La hotel near the rocks area of Sydney. Just a short walk from Circular Quay. The welcome was lovely and all of the staff that served us were really nice. There was no rushing. The menu is good with a nice choice of dishes. We had a window table for two, and... More

When you go to a Shangri-La you get quality and this is no exception, where the roof top bar looks over the harbour and has stunning views at night. Tables can be hard to get but don't worry just go up and enjoy the views wherever you are

Altitude has been our favourite restaurant in sydney. The combination of fantastic views with a well thought out menu. BUT I have been there twice this year, both for special occasions and both times the food has been terrible. The fish has been over cook to make it uneatable or has a gas taste through out. Last night was the... More

I had brunch with a family group of adults and while the view is to die for (even had mirrors on the opposite wall so those facing away keep the view) the service, staff and food were not! The on the day price for brunch is $75 and the serves were tiny - tastes only really - and not particularly... More

We had dinner here with friends and had the tasting. It's was very fun and innovative food...and if they have the porter house for 2, go for it! Get a table by the window if possible it's a great view!

I went to Altitude for my last night meal in Sydney and was very disappointed. I ordered Striploin and it was tough and tasted like it was reheated!! The potatoes sat in a layer of grease.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
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 weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
