What a view!! A small group dinner in an amazing venue, although there needs to be better signposting at the front of the building for those not familiar with Sydney... Food was amazing, and service exemplary

We were lucky enough to be taken for dinner here and, wow. Spectacular views, delicious food and great service. What really impressed me were the small touches - like soft blankets on the arm of each outdoor chair just in case it got cold. The...More

A perfect Sydney winter day coupled with a beautiful lunch at Cafe Sydney. I've always wanted to try this establishment. Our party of 7 was warmly greeted as soon as we got out of the lift. Great start. We were quickly shown to our terrace...More

This beautiful restaurant with amazing views of Sydney Harbour is a must. We dined outside on the patio in the rain under umbrellas and it was worth it! The service and food were excellent even in the rain!

What more can I say! Our night here was perfect. The moment you walk into the restaurant, you're overlooking the magnificent Sydney Harbour. The ambiance inside the restaurant is beautiful, set in a lightly dimmed room. The food is spectacular. I had the slow cooked...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
