It is one of the best place visited on my trip to Sydney. The location is beautiful with a wonderful view of the harbor bridge and the skyline on either sides. They have great selection of drinks and food. If you are in Sydney, it is a must go !!

Nothing more needs to be said. If you're in Sydney on a sunny day then you must have a drink here backing onto the most beautiful view in town.

Friday and Saturday night are very popular. The undercover promanard beside the harbor is teeming with people chating, drinking and eating and having fun. It's a buz place with cafes and bars. We had dinner at the opera bar and had pizza. There are only about 5 choices but fantastic. We had the Margaritta and a pizza with fennel sausage... More

I cannot speak to the food, but when in Sydney, you MUST have a drink here. Incredible views outside and some great people watching.

Unbeatable venue, amazing that your can have a drink with one of the best views in the world at prices that are no greater than a local pub. My favourite bar in Sydney!

For an after work drink or snack in one of the worlds best locations you can't beat this and prices are reasonable too. Open until late so before or after an Opera

This was by far the best meal and atmosphere of our dinners in Sydney. Sitting along the water next to the opera house with views of the city cannot be beat! The food was also very good. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Sydney.

Love this place for chilling in the evenings after sunset. Sure, there are cheaper places with nice views in Sydney, but none of them have the great cocktails, food and views that Opera Bar has. I thoroughly recommend this place to tourists too - it's awesome.
