My wife and I were visiting Sydney for our anniversary and stopped here for some breakfast before going on a cruise. Food was average at best, coffee was also just passable for the price and the manager was openly berating his staff in front of...More

Rossini is right on Circular Quay so it’s handy to walk too from anywhere in the Rocks. You can walk here from cruise ships docked in the Quay as well. We had the bruschetta which was topped with beautiful, red tomatoes. The vegetarian raviolis were...More

Went to Rossini's by accident, couldn't find our original restaurant destination, and were pleasantly surprised. Right at the ferry wharf at Circular Quay, so a busy spot, good to people watch, but lose a bit of the view downstairs. Great friendly service, very expedient, and...More

Perhaps the best Seafood risotto for a long time. The prawn linguini was cooked perfectly. Attentive waiter looked after us. The restaurant is in a prime location opposite Wharf 5 close to the ferries and cruise ship docking points.

Rossini at the Quay is a nice place to relax and eat very good food and enjoy a drink. We have eaten there a few times and find the staff good and the food very good.

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
