Enjoyed dinner on a Saturday Summer night. Superb views looking across to Sydney Harbour Bridge & Circular Quay. Food was first class and service was excellent. Could not fault at all. Prices are what you expect to pay for the quality & location. My fourth...More

My sister booked us in here for an early supper before we went to the opera. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Great view. Buzzy atmosphere. Food was pretty good. They put us right at the edge of the outside terrace so the uninterrupted views were superb....More

Good place for special occasions & overseas visitors Unfortunately the food does not live up to the stunning views & the wines appeared priced at the higher end.

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
