Delicious bar lunch on a sunny Sydney day - it’s obvious that true professionals cook in and operate this magnificent venue. The setting is breathtaking but the food is hardly second best. The yabbby dish with buckwheat pikelets is a standout as was the chocolate...More

This place was amazing. Even though its really expensive, it's a good place to go to celebrate something special and it honestly tasted so good. It was good service, good views if you're lucky enough to get a window seat. We had the pork belly...More

Opting for their pre-theatre menu, we looked forward to our visit to Bennelong. In summary, a very poor paced service with some good and some poor dishes. The location and view is however stunning. A brief summary of timings: 1815 - arrived 1825 - placed...More

Great service, great food, great view. You cannot beat eating in the Sydney Opera House! A stunning unforgettable evening. Order the lamb, you will not be disappointed.

Was just in the area and tried our luck on this place. Staff and service were really good. Pricing was in line with what you’d except. Nice location and views. Meals were small but nice. Overall a nice evening.

The place is gorgeous. The service excellent. The dishes we ate we’re outstanding. It is a pricey restaurant but is worth it.

I can be a picky person, especially if I'm paying top dollar to eat somewhere. But I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner here. We booked in advance so had no trouble when we arrived and they even gave us a window seat with excellent views. The...More

This was a bit of a bucket list thing. I couldn't get into Quay, so the birthday dinner at Bennelong was the next best option in that area. It's always special to go to the Opera House, and looking back to the water and bridge...More

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
