Had a terrific work Xmas party lunch. Fantastic service, beautiful food, great views of the Harbour and just a magic spot. Can't wait to go back!

This is a very nice and modern restaurant with the best view in the world. On a sunny day with a light breeze we had a great time watching the harbour and the opera house. The staff are efficient and friendly and able to adjust things without any fuss. The food is very good, and there are some interesting mixes... More

I went with a friend to Graze and we were directed to the Café next door. Same, shared kitchen but a bar type of set up with a nice atmosphere. Our bad - no booking. The food in the Cafe was lovely as you would expect as the menu is a cut down version of the beautiful main Graze restaurant.... More

Hi Lee337337 So sorry about the mix up with your order. After speaking to the manager he has told me we had an issue with our POS system which dropped off line when the staff member was placing your order which in turn created a delay to your order but not the table next to you. That said it would... More

We had made reservation ahead of time and get a table close to the waterfront side. The view was spectacular. Price matches the quality of food and view.

A restaurant we have dined at on several occasions - for lunch. The location and views are premium. The food here is great quality; not a cafe/or upmarket fish n chip establishment. It is mid-range restaurant dining. We have dined here as a couple and with family. It never fails to deliver on satisfaction. Recommend the fish pie, and also... More

We walk in as it looked quiet pleasant to seat outside adjacent to the cruise terminal and watch the people strolling on beautiful sunny Sunday. Beware of the 15% surcharge on Sunday and public holidays, also the food quality is mediocre my wife ordered scrambled eggs which were eatable, my son the waffle & fruit compote but the fruit with...

Hi Citizengastronaut Thank you for taking the time to review "Beware of the 15% surcharge" you make a comparison akin to "beware of the dog". We make a point of (as we should) that we charge a surcharge on weekends and public holidays and thus it is clearly written on the menu If you feel so strongly that staff you... More

Hands down, this is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. Whether I am taking family or friends there from overseas, or whether I am just going with a group of local friends, this restaurant never disappoints me. I probably visit at least 2 - 3 times a year. Most recently I organised a reunion of 12 work colleagues there.... More

Blue sky, sun shining and a view of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House, you couldn’t ask for a better location for breakfast. As you can imagine it is a popular place for breakfast particularly on a warm Sunday morning. However, despite being busy the staff were very attentive, and the food and coffee arrived in good time. The vegie... More

I had a birthday lunch with the girls here on one Sunday. The view is gorgeous and the atmosphere is very chilled out and casual so it's a perfect spot for a long lazy lunch on a sunny afternoon. Food was average, service friendly, nice setting. I'd go back for coffee or perhaps brunch one day!

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
