A fantastic way to spend time relaxing and enjoying Sydney, The food we ordered (Platter) admittedly this time was not to our satisfaction so we mentioned it to the manager ans immediately this was credited off our bill. We decided to try something else and it was marvellous. We then stayed for some hours and could not speak more hghly... More

We saw another voucher deal for a meal with wine at the Waterfront and jumped at it. The food is very good and the staff are excellent. It was a little cool outside but not cool enough to spoil the enjoyment of the food and the view. If we lived closer to Sydney we would be regulars!

This was our first dining experience here having passed it on many occasions. We were disappointed in the food bearing in mind the premium price you pay for the location. The service staff were attentive but it's an expensive night out for what you get.

Imagine our horror when we found a couple of hundred Japanese occupying the main restaurant! However, the staff seated us an an adjacent area, so... More

It was one of the most pleasant lunches we have ever had in Sydney. My starter salad was really fresh, my companions both ordered calamari and it was mouth-watering just looking at their plates. We then had separate orders of fish and chips, Barramundi and Atlantic salmon, all cooked to perfection. We would certainly recommend the calamari and the Atlantic... More

A great place to eat within easy walking distance (200m) of Circular Quay wharf and station with million dollar views. The menu is alarcarte and prepared (in our opinion) by highly talented chefs. My Wife & I were most partial to the house red even though they have quite an extensive very well presented wine list. Our latest visit is... More
