Delicious food, friendly and attentive staff and absolutely spectacular views. If you can get a table by the window it’s even better. Will definitely be back.

Had a table for two and apart from the breathtaking views, the restaurant offers superb food, service and wine. Had a great evening and would be back for their famed Saturday brunch.

Would not normally try hotel restaurants, particularly ones as potentially stuffy and/or touristy (all about the views) as this one. But we had a gift voucher so invited some friends to join us for a Friday night dinner. Ok, the view is spectacular but thats...More

Been here for brunch now 3 times. It started out excellent. Great food, great service. But they began cheapening the offering. The food isn’t that good anymore. Sent back our burnt pancakes. Chefs disguising a broken egg with holldaise sauce. Don’t expect food that’s like...More

The Rocks
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
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

Figure on about $150+ for two, including a glass of wine for two. The menu varies frequently, so your dinner choices will dictate the final amount. We have found it to be a 'nice treat". Service is wonderful, food is... More
