Ridiculously amazing food. We had the 10 course degustation & every dish was amazing. ‘How do you come up with a dish like this?’ we said quite a few times over lunch. Highly recommended

Quay restaurant has the most wonderful food. Our six course lunch was not only delicious but used foods that are very rarely used elsewhere and certainly not at home. The presentation of each dish was an art. Work in itself. I had the vegetarian option...More

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
