There's always a long queue when we past the outlet at Darling Harbour. We tried it one night when the queue was shorter. The hot chocolate and cakes were not great. We prefer the other chocolate bar at Darling Harbour.

My travel companion and I have an ongoing contest to find Australia's best croissant. We've eaten croissants at quite a few places, as you can imagine. GuyLian's croissants were some of the best we've had. The croissants came with a warm, liquid chocolate sauce that transformed an already excellent croissant into chocolate-covered heaven. It was like eating a pain au... More

Nothing special about this place. For a dark hot chocolate drink,waffle and ice-cream full of cream, ice-coffee, and to cost $50? The waffle is very simple,nothing like in Max brenner and Lindt, just a simple thin flaky waffle, with a sprinkle of caster sugar. The location is right in the heart of the historic, The Rocks. The service is good,... More

Doing a debrief on the play with a friend while sipping delicious cups of hot chocolate is a great way to end an evening.

Food was very rich as you would expect at a Chocolate restaurant. Lots of different choices and yes it is a little expensive but that is what their Chocolates are in the shops... More

Checked this out with a friend and my twins (14) the one down at Circulay Quay. Late night dessert, strolling down there was a love way to walk of the dinner we had and make room for our decadent dessert. Too many choices, but all we chose were heavenly. A must visit for all chocolate lovers.Very expensive but sometimes you... More

We stopped here to grab a couple of coffees on the way to show at the Opera house. The young woman with bright red nails at the cash register found it challenging to mask her disdain for us as we decided that this was the place we would depart with our change. She served someone else and would not even... More

This was by a chasm the worst restaurant experience during my recent vacation in Sydney and Brisbane. The owners have a truly wonderful location right on Circular Quay Harbour. It has romantic views of the Bridge, is adjacent to the Opera House and the passing pedestrian traffic on a sunny Sydney day has to be a restaurant owners dream. But... More

Savoury food was lovely but sweet waffle had less substance than I would have expected. Seemed like it came straight out of a packet from supermarket.

Hubby and I stopped here after dinner a few doors away. We first noticed the large chocolate gnomes in the front window and so went in. We had coffee onsite and I have to say it was excellent. Probably the best coffee we had in Sydney for the entire weekend we were there. We also had the following desserts (to... More
