Majestic old world charm emanates from this grandiose dining space. Elgin would be proud of the different marble. Entree of 2 x Jamon and a prosciutto was delicious. The aged beef fillet was cooked perfectly with a texture of toasted marshmallow. I do wish though they would leave it whole and not pre-slice it, or at least ask how we'd... More

I had been told that Australian beef was among the best in the world, so we figured what better way to try than at one of the most highly recommended places in Sydney. Reservations were easy to make (in our case, via the hotel we stayed at) and we had no problems getting a day-of reservation. It's a comfortable walk... More

Generally frequented by the business crowd in Sydney CBD. Service is excellent, menu changes every day and the sides are legendary. Wine list is probably one of the most extensive I have come across in the world. Will happily visit for business related lunches/dinners - it's a bit cold for something a bit more intimate [high ceilings, marble floors].

Went and checked out the bar and bar snacks as we weren't otganised enough to secure a restaurant booking. Enjoyed a beer with some of the local oysters and some chips. Why I'm taking the time to review though is the gravy that came with said chips. OMG! The wagyu gravy is one of the tastiest things I have ever... More

Thursday nights in November aren't boom nights normally. But it was good to see how busy this restaurant was last week. Why? Because they deliver a really good product with excellent service. Our special ribs were absolutely delicious. The fish received just as much appreciation as did the famous mixed mushrooms. Desserts were excellent too. Not inexpensive but definitely of... More

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.
