Incredible tasting menu if you have the time and cash

We were jet-lagged and hungry and went with the tasting menu. It was an incredible (and decadent) display of Australia's finest ingredients, with an incredible view. Everything was very elegantly prepared - my only advice is to make sure you have about 2.5 hours to do this. We were there on an... read more

Whilst we enjoyed our meals at the early sitting (6:30pm), the service was definitely rushed...and it was noticeable. The food was good, however, we expected more for a restaurant that boasts its pedigree for fine food and an amazing experience. When I booked, I mentioned it was special occasion (we had flown from interstate to celebrate my wife's birthday), and... More

Perfect location dining here has always been a pleasure BUT we decided on a leisurely lunch outside as the day was beautiful. It's a shame the food and service was very poor. Fish taco and trout steamed bun - tasteless. The only thing they managed to get right was the chips and edamame. Good selection of wines.

My hubby & I had an anniversary dinner here. We like the venue. Food & service also meet our expectation (no wow factor). It was worth visiting to spend an easy yet special evening.

I came here with a colleague for dinner. We had a fantastic time. The food was excellent. The atmosphere is relaxing yet vibrant. The views of Sydney Harbour are just amazing. The staff are friendly, competent and knowledgable.

We went there on our first date, the food was great, so as the service, The seating arrangement wasn't the best, as we were seating in the middle we felt like we were in the middle of the kitchen and the flow of the waiters and the waitresses were through our table, Overall it is really nice and am thinking...

The restaurant is on 2 floors, the decoration is post industriel with a lot of emphasize on the lights. The menu is Modern Australian which now is very high on my top of favorite cuisine. it is fashion of... More

Our friend's advice has never failed us, and the restaurnat certainly exceeded expectations this time. We walked in the dark along the docks to the corner location enjoying views of yachts and sounds of Sydney Harbour. Rounding the corner of the rustic wharf buildings we were amazed at a singularly lovely glass walled and sparkling light restaurant. Welcomed in, we... More
