Cowper Wharf is an elegant dining venue with several restaurants one of which is Otto. The restaurant came highly recommended. We were welcomed by friendly staff who throughout the meal were proffessional, attentive and good humoured. My wife started with risotto which was perfectly cooked and I had Moreton Bay Bugs with pasta and tomato sauce which was excellent. Mains... More

Otto's continues to be one of the best long lunch venues in Sydney. The service is friendly, relaxed but attentive and helpful. The staff know the menu well and are enthusiastic about the various dishes. There was no pressure to move on once we'd finished our meal. A fabulous long lunch, Otto's never disappoints.

My family went to Otto with an international visitor/foodie. We had 3 courses and found all the food to be very tasty and of a high quality. The cocktails and wine were also delicious. The price tag was a hefty one so best not to go on a budget. However, the food and drink and friendly service were worth it,... More

Once again Otto you have outdone yourself ! Visited with our parents in law (on holidays from Italy) on the weekend and as always everything was perfect. Sensational food, outstanding views of the harbour and skyline, marvelous attentive service from all staff, especially the gorgeous Julie who went above and beyond. Simply "the best"

We were able to score a last minute reservation on a Friday night. It's a challenge to get a reservation and I can understand why.  The cocktails are strong and inventive, the food is elevated and approachable and the view is to die for. We were lucky to sit outside and enjoy the wharf and the nightime view of the... More

Visited early January and was busy. Staff were a bit abrupt and not as friendly as we'd got used to in Sydney. Food was good, but way overpriced.

Great to dine in or out. Particularly nice in the evening with views of the dock. Also good for people watching. Food was very good but pricy.

We had lunch at Otto’s on New Year’s Day, The food and service was excellent as usual. The food is contemporary Italian and generally light and refreshing, especially the fish dishes. The sommelier was knowledgeable and helpful, and help us pick two excellent wines. This is a great spot for a long relaxing lunch, expensive but worthwhile.

Cowper Bay is a fantastic wharf option to dining on the more touristy Circular Quay. Less than a five minute cab ride from the CBD, we felt this area catered a little more to locals than tourists. There are a number of restaurants along the wharf that all have both indoor and outdoor dining areas. It was a beautiful evening... More

On a cold and rainy night we sat out side under the heaters and cover. It was so lovely to still sit outside and be comfortable taking in the gorgeous view. The food is amazing and the service was attentive but not over the top. Love this place one of my Sydney faves.

Thank Fiona H
