Great view

We are here mainly for the view, the food was nice/average and a little pricey. However I do feel it was worth it considering where we were. Pros The perfect place for a great view of the bridge. Nice staff. Cons Slightly outdated. Overpriced but that's just payment for the view. Average food.

Had afternoon tea after being at a show in the opera house. Staff friendly. Sat inside next to a window. Ordered scones, came out warm but very dry as though they had been warmed up numerous times. Coffee good but overall expensive for what you got.

This place serves average to good food, but they have a huge choice and they're open when everything else is closed.

The fish and chips were very good. We had just arrived by ship and the location was great. The view of the Quay was outstanding.

Got a panini here, this was literally a soft bread with green tomatoes and cheapest ham/cheddar. My friend wasn't more lucky with her bruschetta. I don't mind paying twice the normal price for this considering the location but the food is absolutely awful. I'd be ashamed to own such a business !

This place has been around for years. The only other time I've been here is circa 1994 after a night out drinking and it was the only thing open. The decor, even the uniforms & menus are the same, which might be a " theme" but just look dated. Really expensive for poor quality food which had no flavour. Tourists-... More

If your a tourist you will probably go here as its convenient and close to the surroundings. But do your research! There are far better places to go to for a yummy lunch. In saying that if your after a basic lunch and are in a rush and on the go and prepared to pay the extra $$ prices because... More

Had lunch here on my last day in Sydney, I'm glad I chose to come here The Food was so good, I recommend the Grilled Thai Chicken Fillets. Has a great view of the Circular Quays and the Harbour Bridge. A bit pricey but worth it

We eat breakfast there almost everyday we were in Sydney (2 weeks). Highly recommend the Bacon and Eggs selection. For anyone who loves bacon and not had the British or Aussie slant do not pass on their bacon. Great coffee as well (the large filtered white). Had the same waitress in the morning, Priscilla. She was great and her story... More
