Enjoyable atmosphere in a wonderful building but a relatively expensive menu with food that was enjoyable but probably forgettable by tomorrow.

Great little find with a wide selection of Italian wines and a salami platter to die for. Attentive and great staff. We had an hour to kill and it was an hour well spent.

A busy but captivating building holds the key. Its like sitting on a median strip, with traffic bustling past, so not ideal for lingering or conversation.

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
