Our hotel was next door from the Tower Eye so had late lunch on first day in the midst of jet lag. The buffet is varied but the quality of the food is very average. Views are beautiful though, and you get to see te whole of Sydney during your meal.

My son took me, along with his girlfriend for dinner on Mothers Day. The time of the best owing (6:30pm) was perfect as we had a clear daylight view of Sydney, spotting all the iconic sights. As we revolved and ate well cooked, good quality food, we lost daylight and had a very different view of Sydney by night. There... More

Just go there for the view..it is a wonderful experience.. but for the food, I agree with everybody, it is terrible, the salad appears wilted & not a lot of choices, the seafood, cold shrimps, cold mussels with no taste, the meat too tough & lukewarm, the sausage no taste at all, rice very lumpy. This is not the kind... More

I've been living in Sydney for a while and never been up there. I finally did. You have to register at the reception counter in the Westfield at Level 4 first and then take a lift all the way up there. The view is nice but there's better views in other bars in Sydney (O bar and dining and Blu... More

The restaurant entrance is very hard to find and although tables provide birds-eye views of the city $85 for two courses (or $95 for three courses) was ridiculously expensive for an average meal, pretentiously served, and not worth the price of admission.

Having been to the equivalent sky tower 360 restaurant in Auckland New Zealand (excellent, highly recommended); the Sydney version was alright but poor in comparison. Food was good though pricey and the wine likewise; the ambience was nil rather than electric and hemce felt like a let down. The service was good a relatively timely but, and its a big... More

Entertaining visitors fro Arizona in the USA. Thought a meal at the buffet to enjoy the view of Sydney by night. How disappointing. The buffet now looks and feels like a Bistro at a rundown club. Bare tables, dry and tired looking buffet. Had to wait five minutes for a spoon for the soup! $75 a head was a waste... More

The view, on a fine day, is super. Spellbinding. The food was not. A tuna amuse-bouche came with a too-fishy hit. A scallop entree was overwhelmed by pickled daikon with an overpowering smell. The main was pork, dry with a too crunchy skin and some limp, stringy green vegetable. The orange tart for dessert was good, the only component of... More

My fiancée and I went to Sydney tower for a romantic dinner and it did not disappoint. We went for the set menu with matched wines. The food was delicious and the service second to none. The beautiful view at sunset topped it off.

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.
