The view is amazing and we were lucky enough to get a great table outside for our Anniversary dinner. But the food and the Service was also a highlight. Thanks for making our Anniversary one to remember.

Had dinner here with a group and we all enjoyed the experience. The views from the outdoor tables are amazing and the seafood and cocktails lived up to all the hype. Service was personable and prompt throughout service.

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
