Cocktails :-)

Amazing cocktails :-) Can't comment on the food as we only had drinks, but they were good drinks :-) Pricey, but not that expensive and really what did you expect?! There is a minimum spend per person (think it's $20?) and they do enforce this - the group next to us left because they only came... read more

We came here for my birthday. We had a main and desert. Both were fantastic, only negative is that they are very small portions and we were somewhat still hungry after. View was fantastic, very romantic scenery for couples. As its quite pricey and fine dining I wouldn’t recommend children I would definitely go back as the food was impeccable.

We live in Sydney but this was a treat to see our beautiful city from above. The service was very friendly & relaxed. The food was great with good range of choice.

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

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 served, but I had to ask for my dessert;... 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
