I was expecting big things from Pendolinos. I had heard rave reviews and couldn't wait to celebrate an anniversary here. 7.30pm booking and the food service was so rushed we were done by 8.40. The carpaccio was bland however smothered in the most overpowering cheese....More

Tiny protons of the pasta and the pumpkin risotto was just horrible we ordered two of them and they where just trying to be fancy and it was too much going on and lacking flavour

The best thing about Pendolinos is its consistently delicious food and excellent service. I look forward to returning to try the other dishes even before we finish our meal. From the minute you are greeted at the front door to the minute you leave the...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

Sorry it has taken so long to reply. Have only just noticed the message and you have probably already been there by now. Anything from smart casual to elegant is fine.
