Spectacular views overlooking the Harbour. I don't believe there is another restaurant in Sydney that has such a view. Creative menu and dishes with paramount pairings even the non-alcoholic one. Professional and efficient service.

The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi

waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
