Lunch specials for $10! Food is very good for the price; steak and salmon available on the lunch menu. Great views of darling harbour. I would definitely recommend for a nice cheap lunch, not sure about paying full prices at dinner time.

I hate to submit a negative review, but we love, love, love Mexican food and were sorely disappointed at La Cita. The outdoor seating has a lovely view of Darling Harbour, but that's about the only positive thing I can say about this restaurant. Our beer arrived in salt-rim glasses (this was bizarre)... our water glasses were filthy and the... More

During lunch you can get entree and a main for 12$ which is so good! The portion of salmon is really small, but go for the meat and you'll be sarisfied. The entree is tasty and the service is good. Watch out the seagulls!

We came here in a group of about 25 on a Saturday night to celebrate a colleague's birthday. Most of us arrived at different times and by the time my wife and I got there, most people had already ordered food. The two of us had actually already eaten dinner but we didn't want to be the only ones at... More

We had lunch here on a sunny day and its a great location to take in the views across the harbour. The fish (swordfish and salmon) on the lunch menu were both excellent. The nachos we had as a starter were not great. Hard to screw up Nachos, but they seemed to do it! The beer I was served (in... More

This was a great experience as we don't live in sydney we bought a voucher online for a meal and drink. We really did not know what to expect with the vouchers but we had an excellent Night. We had a shared range of tapas meals which were absolutely devine especially the scallops. The sangria was really nice as well.... More

We've been to La Cita (and yes, always on a coupon) six times and this last time was certainly not quite what we've been used to. The chap we booked with over the phone was very abrupt unlike anyone else we've spoken to - perhaps he's new but even at the restaurant last week he was the same - looked... More

We had lunch here recently with a coupon and the meal was very pleasant and the service was friendly and efficient. The entree was simple but tasty. The seafood main was a collection of items that were also quite tasty and just enough for lunch. The Sangria was very nice. I'm not sure of the value of the meal if... More

We had lunch here recently using a deal voucher bought on the net. We were seated straight away and the meal was well above what we expected for the price. The staff had a problem with another patron (They had not brought their voucher,as requested in the Email sent after Booking) This was handled quietly and Professionally so I don't... More

Service was excellent. As we are not great alcoholic drinkers we ordered Lemon Lime and Bitters. No problem. Entree was nice and meat platter and dessert were more than enough and very tasty. We had a $49 Voucher and did not have any problems with time, service, food or quantity. Would certainly go back again. Thank you.
