This place is ok. Great views of the bridge but seating is cramped and the food is pretty expensive and average (lunch).

Amazing show at an amazing venue. The Opera house has amazing accoustics and has really stepped up its catering game. It turns a great show experience into a great night out!

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
