We had a yummy breakfast at the Darling Harbour restaurant. Freshly baked Danish pasty of your choice with a pot of chocolate dipping sauce - Mmmmmm! The iced coffee was so refreshing and nice to have for a change. Really friendly staff and quick service. We enjoyed our breakfast's so much we had to come back for one more before... More

This place is a great spot for true chocolate lovers, you could stare at the chocolate display hours! Went down on a lunch break for some dessert and boy was I impressed. Had a look at their selection and was helped by a really enthusiastic cashier called Chris. He had such a great product knowledge and answered everything I had... More

The Hot Chocolate at this place is to die for! The wife and I were out on a weeknight and it was quite chilly, so it was great to find this place open! We were seated and served by a charming gentleman by the name of Chris who took care of our every need. We enjoyed a plate of toasty... More

Thinking a hot chocolate would be fabulous following a night out in Sydney, We checked the opening hours ( fri- sat until midnight) before we trekked down to the Quay. An hour at least before the closing time we were quickly told that there were only takeaways as they were closing soon. We advised that the website stated the 12pm... More

We ate at Guylian Cafe for supper while in Sydney. We had a chicken baguette and a quiche with side salad. Both meals were very good, but we felt were maybe a bit too pricey. The high prices reflect the location along the waterfront. We thoroughly enjoyed their 100% Pure Pleasure (chocolate mousse) dessert which lives up to its name!

This café is a great place to treat yourself to a rich, chocolate dessert or to buy chocolate gifts. A friend and I stopped here for a post-lunch dessert on a week day during the school holidays. We both had the rich, milk hot chocolate which comes in a jug for you to pour over the square of chocolate that's... More

This is my childs favourite cafe in the Darling Harbour area. Double chocolate milkshake being the favourite. On arrival we noticed the afternoon tea special. $12 for a coffee or tea and a tart. We ordered a latte with lemon meringue tart, hot dark soy chocolate & the milkshake. Though a little expensive, my child gives the $10.50 milkshake the... More

Been to the Darling Harbour cafe several times over the years and was always consistently good. Don't know what has happened, the food was ordinary, the salad was wilted with brown spots all over and was not edible. The service was average to say the least and the bathrooms were out of service. Will be trying elsewhere next time we... More

First time and last time we will ever go there. The food was very overpriced and was quite average. We ordered a hot chocolate ($9.90) and a chocolate milkshake ($11) and they were nice though very overpriced for what they were. The fresh fruit and dipping chocolate were alright, were told that would be enough for us both at $16.50... More

We ate here a few times in the hope that, considering the cafe is near to our home, they might improve. However we generally have found that Guylian has rude staff, they are not quick or happy to compromise with meals & seem quite irritated if you "over stay" your welcome. By compromise, I mean I asked them to butter... More
