Poor Service Overshadowed the Great Food & View

Poor service was the order of the day at the Sydney Tower Restaurant! I ordered an appetizer to share, but everyone else's utensils were removed before the appetizer was served, and we had to ask for utensils. Pacing seemed slow, but acceptable. When it was time for dessert, everyone else was... read more

Even though there were several poor reviews, we happened to be at the Tower past our regular lunch time so we opted to eat in the revolving restaurant. The food and service matched the spectacular views. It was on the expensive side for lunch but it was good value for the quality of the experience. Lunch was served at a... More

This restaurant offers 360 degree views of the whole of Sydney and provides for an experience unrivalled in many parts of the world. We ate a la carte and had some delightful food as well as cocktails. We were also blessed with the departure of the Cunard Queen Mary and her sister, the Queen Victoria, all of which, too place...

We opted for the two course lunch which was the best choice as we were one table of only 4 occupied. The meal at lunch time is better value for money. We had two courses with an included glass of Prosecco and another half bottle of wine for $135. The food was excellent, especially the pudding. ... The views from... More

A great place to celebrate a special occasion. We went to celebrate our 5th anniversary and were not disappointed. The food was fabulous including our meat platter that we had for starter and the pork belly for main course. The wine list was extensive yet reasonably priced for such an exclusive venue. We had the pleasure of seeing fireworks going... More

Loved the view from the rotating restaurant. Not cheap - the two course meal, beer and a tip was 100 dollars.

We arrived early so that we could sit at the bar to watch the sunset and chat. After a while we were shown to our table for dinner. The service was as good as the view. The food was enjoyable as well. If in Sydney it is one of the must do places.

We booked an evening dinner at the 360 degree restaurant in the Sydney Tower, as that was our last night in the city before moving on. We had high expectations - and we were not disappointed. I had booked a table at the windows and when we arrived at the front desk, we were instantly taken to a nice table... More
