The setting is spectacular, with expansive windows looking out onto the harbor and the Opera House. The tables are widely spaced, which promotes a soothing, quiet, muted atmosphere. The food was hit and miss, although the misses were still pretty good, with the exception of...More

The best restaurant I have eaten in this year. Food was all exceptionally presented and very imaginative. A bit expensive but definitely one to add to the list for an annual visit!

Delicious food. Portions were quite large. Desserts were the highlight. Snow egg, although generic, was fantastic. Great location. You need to go up the stairs to the top floor of the overseas passenger terminal for the entry.

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
