This is the first time I had a "big breakfast" here (they call it a different name here but essentially it is what most sydney cafes would call a "big breakfast" and it was absolutely worth it... The restaurant is very close to the Sheraton on the park... definitely worth signing up for, for interstate/overseas visitors...

We visited this restaurant prior to attending a show at the State Theatre. We were very impressed that one of the first questions asked of us, was were we attending the theatre tonight. This then expedited the meal. The meals were very well priced and of the highest quality. The Veal Scallopine and the seafood red curry were both excellent... More

the menu looks promising we probably need to come back to try the main menu. We went here for coffee and desert before a show at the State Theatre which is across the road. The coffee was stone cold and undrinkable so left that on the table didn't have time to order another one. The desert was really nice

This is a good place for a business meeting at lunch time. It was not crowded and there was lots of room around the table. The servers were very pleasant. The food was good. The decor is looking a bit worn and feels like a refitted cafeteria.

I went there to celebrate a birthday. While the service was excellent (very friendly staff) the food is of poor quality and the prices are exorbitant, (e.g. $25 for fish and chips). The atmosphere (i.e. decore) is best described as that of an average well kept cafe - not up to the standard of an expensive resturant.

It has been awhile since I've been back. They now have a revamped menu. The first dishes we tried at this visit was the laksa and the pork belly which was absolutely delicious! We will be back to try definitely!

The only place in central CBD open for dinner on a Sunday - excellent choice of food and wines, plus friendly service, soft lighting and great value for money.

Went for dinner last week with 3 others. Booked in on a Wednesday @ 6.30pm. Dining Room very quiet, about a dozen others in. Decor a little old, needs a refurb. Reception good, Good and varied menu, prices around $35, not bad for Sydney. We had different mains, steaks, chicken, salmon, all good size and well cooked. However we had... More

Visited this restaurant during one of the clubs recent meal promotions and while the experience was okay it just didn't hit my expectations. Some of the offered menu items had sold out and while the waiter was good he seemed to struggle with maintaining table service when it got busy and we just had to sit there waiting to order,...

We went for lunch before an afternoon show. The service was friendly but they forgot to serve me the dessert I ordered. Menu choices and prices were very good as was the wine by glass choices. All in all, a pleasant experience.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
