Whilst the room offers much, the reality is a little underwhelming. The room itself is spacious, but tired. I felt as if I had walked back into the 1960's. The food is sound without being top notch. Prices are somewhat over the top given the...More

We were the guests of an elderly life member and his wife and the ambience of this restaurant suited us beautifully. So "old world" maybe 1940's and reminiscent of the Melbourne Club! The waiters were full of personality and perfectly trained and suited.

I found this restaurant to be one of the best in Sydney. For atmosphere service and food quality . Certainly for its location in the central CBD area of Sydney.

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
