I ate here while staying at the Marriott hotel. The food was very good and presentation even better. Loved it.

We met here with a group of friends for dinner. First impressions: it was cold, loud music was playing and there was some kind of building going on which meant the toilets were not easily accessible (not sure if this was permanent or not). No...More

Had been with a couple of friends a day ago. Excellent food quality and great 'knowledgeable' staff, especially Mr. Mohit. He looked after us and provided us with great service throughout and his selection of beers is just great. After letting him know that we...More

A great location with outdoor seating as well as indoor, but... Service very disorganized and haphazard, limited menu and the queues! Our food got 'lost', at least after I asked we got a free beer to make up, hence average score instead of poor. Tables...More

Located behind Sydney Harbor Marriott. We drank beer, it was expensive. The good thing is that there are plenty of outdoor places in a nice garden.

Very visually appealing. Perfect cocktails. But I bought the lamb ribs and had to buy a side salad because the meal only came with the meat and nothing else. Not a place for family's with children.

The bar has a great outdoor seating area which is lovely as it is nicely heated on a cool winter's evening. They offer a good range of beers on tap. Service was friendly.

We had a great time there the food was good and the staff was great. Suggest you get the a little early it does get crowded.

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
