  • Dimmi

    Another of Sydney’s restaurants with a fabulous view, Cafe Sydney is certainly at its best in summer on the outdoor terrace. Then again, it’s also a stunning location at night when the city lights sparkle. The food is a global mix of flavours, and dishes might range from a harissa spiced spatchcock or a tandoori roasted blue eye cod to a simple and tasty jewfish with vongole. Sydney’s compulsory seafood platter appears and seems most appropriate in light of the luxurious harbour view.

  • Good Food Guide

    Sydney Harbour dress circle views aside, Cafe Sydney must be doing something right to be still packing them in after 12 years. Perhaps it’s the clever combination of solicitous service, an attentive s

    These are some of the best views in the city. The huge balcony juts straight over Circular Quay with a bird's-eye view of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Sydney ferries choofing their way across the sparkling blue w

    "The good was good even the portion was a bit small. The service was superb and friendly. Only disappointment was the service at the reception. I understand that it was busiest time for lunch but they could do better. If they cannot handle sorting out arriving guests at once, they could allocate more stuff members rather than kept client wait any longer. "

    "We had a lovely meal at Cafe Sydney. We both had the beef tenderloin which was excellent, mine was cooked to perfection (I asked for Medium-rare), but my husband's steak was a bit undercooked on the inside (he asked for Medium and the middle was close to rare). The side of baby potatoes (daily addition) was delicious, and the salted caramel dessert was amazing! Only complaint is the fairly limited menu options for someone who doesn't eat seafood. Also the price of the wine is a bit excessive ($60 for a bottle on average). The view is great and service is very good."

    "Outstanding food and service, a favourite of mine. Had a small issue with one our meals and the staff were very accommodating and apologised. We will definitely be back and will continue to recommend this restuarant to our friends. "

    "Waaaaaaaay overpriced for what you get. Yes, the food was nice, but not outstanding. There are many other restaurants in Sydney with food that is equally as nice, if not better, at half the price. One of the "daily specials' was a steak at $70. Really????? Great service though, and of course a spectacular view. Was also not very happy that for our 6.30pm booking we had to be out by 8.15pm when paying over $130 each for two courses and wine. Felt very rushed, and I think it's very greedy of the restaurant to do double sittings at those kind of prices."
