I never get tired of going to this restaurant, but only when somebody else is paying. This is why I have only been three times in four years. Everything is wonderful, the view, the staff, the food, the wine, the perfect place for a very...More

we had been there for dinner. Limited options if you are looking for vegetarian food. Items are pricey, good drinks options.

I could not ask for a better place to spend my first afternoon in Sydney. On a hot summers day it had the perfect view of the bridge and the Opera house. The service was the quality that you would expect from such a high...More

I would say that Cafe Sydney was a five, except it is terribly expensive. Still it was a great place to come for a celebration. Most of the diners, that lunchtime looked like they were having business lunches. The service was excellent and the food...More

The food is always impressive and the service finds that balance between intrusive and attentive, it leaves you enough time to enjoy the view which is definitely the drawcard for this restaurant. The wine selection is great and if you have some time a summers...More

Been here a few times, seems most are here for business, with romantic dinners as well, if you are looking for a great restaurant to propose or that special dinner, with exceptional views of Sydney, this would be no.1.

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
