Great dining atmosphere, and very pleasant dining even in middle of May. Range of options including italian, asian, grills and traditional, all well patronised so the food and service must be good (see separate review for Olivo)

Darling Harbor is a great place to have dinner and watch the boats come and go, or just have a drink or two. The harbor is just a fun active place to enjoy several hours.

Perfect place to visit on Sunday morning. Not so busy and very peaceful atmosphere. 30min of walk would give you very refreshing feeling that gives enough energy to survive for coming weekdays

I agree with first response, you can walk (30-40) min but take the ferry for the best views of the bridge. The bridge is adjacent to central Quay, darling harbour is further inland and bridge is not visible from there.
