The ambience is infectious, the staff - and there’s a lot of them - are very happy, and the menu reads well, but it just feels as though they’ve lost sight of some basics. Firstly, over the 2 hours of our stay we were served...More

We stayed at the QT hotel and came here for breakfast. It’s a really nice restaurant and enjoyed Bircher Musli, and almond milk latte. They have a great breakfast menu and have a great kids menu also.

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
