we went to Benelong to mark a big event and it certainly lived up to expectations. Small serves of finely crated dishes, with considered combinations and unexpected taste sensations. Hardly likely to be our local bistro but a fine dining experience that we need to...More

The food was good but nothing impressive. However, the ambience was great, dining overlooking the harbour view. The biggest downside of the whole experience was the service. There were many waiting staffs on the floor, however we found it very difficult to get their attention....More

Excellent meal at an iconic location. The staff were superb unobtrusively on the ball. Our table number 4 had terrific views of the bridge and the city skyline, Every course was sublime. Expensive but worth every penny.

Modern architecture. The Sydney Operahouse. Worth visiting from Europe. Nice. The attmosphere! The bar was scenic. But the service was unprofessional and unkind. I met so many friendly people down there. I guess they pay so bad to their staff, like for slaves. Australia has...More

Had dinner here on a gorgeous summer evening. We hadn’t been there since the new owner (peter Gilmour) took over so were looking forward to an enjoyable evening. The journey into the restaurant is always spectacular given its location in the Opera House. We arrived...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
