We took an early dinner here this evening and were able to select a table on the outdoor terrace overlooking Darling Harbour so it was a great location. The food and wine was okay but quite expensive, even accounting for the location. I was particularly...More

Criniti’s is a rare mix of great food, great service and a great position. The ambience of the restaurant is hard to beat as it is obviously popular and the hubbub of people enjoying the experience is infectious. The whole experience was really fun!

Enjoyed sitting by the harbour eating a really delicious pizza. Fantastic surroundings, great surroundings but ultimately a bit to pricey

Loved our meals, but service was dreadful AND they wanted a tip. Will not go back. Sat in balcony, was ok view but plastic blinds blocked what could have been a great view.

We chose Crinitis specifically because it had such a wide selection in the menu so to cater for a large group (12 people) of diverse tastes and food intolerances at a weekend lunch. This is about the only thing I could say good about it....More
