We ate here for breakfast last week - had bacon scrambled eggs toast and tomato - serving was generous and tasty topped off with a view of Sydney Harbour bridge with a Carnival Cruise ship in port. Great start to my working day.

Our family of 4 dined here while at circular quay over the long weekend. We sat outside and watched the light rain while enjoying our fabulous Italian delights. The food was fabulous and the service was great. The atmosphere is great to sit and watch...More

We stopped for Dinner while we were at Vivid. The food was good but very overpriced. I have never paid over $20 for a bowl of Garden Salad and a small Pizza was $25. The waitress was lovely and we were going to leave her...More

Late lunch options gave enough choices for a selective group of four. Service was OK--but restaurant was pretty empty due to time of day. Really nice view of the Sydney Harbor Bridge. Expensive...but we got what we paid for, i.e., a great view (primary) with...More

The location makes for good views and people watching. We both enjoyed our meals, and the service was pretty good.

Terrible service from all staff, every single staff member was rude and unhelpful. Waitress did not listen to us, despite having to repeat order 5 times, and still brought out incorrect meal. Not one staff member had a smile. Incredibly disappointing experience - was happy...More

We had breakfast here the morning after a trip to see vivid. We were greeted and found a table in a quick and friendly manner. We started with a couple of flat whites which were absolutely delicious, I believe the blend was molinari. My partner...More

It's been there forever and easily overlooked when you're intent on catching a ferry, but this long-established restaurant right on the Quay has likely survived the years for good reason. We can only comment on breakfast, but suspect other meals may be worth investigating. The...More

This Circular Quay restaurant with inside and outside seating was just around the corner from the Marriott right on the harbor. We actually dined there for lunch one day and breakfast another day. We sat outside where we could enjoy people-watching and all the activity...More

My wife and I came here principally for a coffee and it turned out to be very nice indeed. In addition, the friendly and efficient rendered rendered by Gabriela and Luciano was most appreciated.

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

We are thinking about New Year's eve dinner at Rossini this year--should we reserve a table inside or outside? Not sure about weather and wind, etc of course looking to see the fireworks display. Anyone been here for New Year's eve before? How is the entertainment?

100% Outdoors! It will be summer time and you will enjoy the breeze. The servers are very attentive. I do not remember if they accept reservations. But call ahead of time and reserve a table. You will be VERY close to the... More
