Escaping from the more boring-type breakfasts in a nearby hotel, I found District to be an excellent choice for breakfast. Good dishes and good service were there, and the place was comfortable, too.

I had lunch here today with a client. We both ordered the ‘Steak Frites’ and it was nothing short of faultless. The house-made bread is also outstanding as was everything else, particularly the great service. Sydney people rave about Melbourne restaurants however, I wish we...More

We enjoyed a great night here as part of our stay in Sydney. The service could only be described as professional, the food was excellent, the wine list was interesting and great. Nice live music created a nice ambiance. Well done!

District Brasserie has slotted into the ground floor of Chifley Plaza so neatly, it feels like it has always been there. This is in part due to Paul Kelly’s expertise in interior design. Kelly has employed classical design cues, from aged brass to polished green...More

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
