Great place to catch up for a drink. Lots of comfortable seating and umbrellas with mist sprays for those hot days. Great backdrop of the bridge and Opera House, ferries whizzing past and the whole busy tourist procession.

It's not as easy to see the Bridge from the Meat and Cheese Room. It's better to sit facing out, on bar stools, near the Cocktail Bar. If you wish to be out of doors your view will be great, as long as you face the bridge... More
