Great place for food and drinks overlooking the quay.

Visited here after buying a voucher off scoopon. The offer was $49 for $100 to send on food or drink. To give you an estimate on prices, for the $100 me and my partner got a main each from the food menu and 3 beers/ciders (bottles) each. If your buying draught beers or eating the pricier mains... read more

Order your drinks, get yourself a seat at the open windows in this first floor bar and watch the biz in Circular Quay below. We went after a long day of site-seeing and walking and it was a great place to have a rest, but still soak up the unique Sydney vibe.....with the added bonus of spectacular views of the... More

If you want great scenery as well as being able to see it in relative privacy, then head along to the ECQ bar. The best view of circular quay is from here - watch the crowds stroll the quay or gaze across at any of the cruise ships docked - it's never boring!

The location for watching the ferry traffic through Circular Quay is fantastic. The view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is spectacular! Good array of options to eat. Close to transport to get home.

I used to frequently visit this bar up until about a year ago and hadn't been here for sometime until a friend had her birthday drinks there last night. We arrived after 5 and they only have a tapas menu available for dinner. I ordered the whiting with calamari, $19 gets you 2 pieces of calamari and 3 pieces of... More

We opted to hide from the cold wind outside, in this fantastic bar with incredible views of Sydney Harbour. We asked for a glass of wine but unfortunately 2 of the 4 red wines were unavailable. We were a bit surprised by that, but then the same waiter announced it was last drinks at 9.30pm. Sydney - not quite that... More

Have frequented ECQ on many occasions. The views are amazing, and it's away for the busy Circular Quay tourist attractions. Enjoy catching up with friends over a drink or two. Good summer and winter venue as it has large bifold windows which make it suitable all year round.

My daughter and I were sitting down to a late lunch at the pizza restaurant on the promenade below when an intense rain squall blew through, scattering tables and umbrellas and running off the diners. To shelter from the storm, we went into the ECQ hotel and decided to eat at their upstairs bar. The views were fabulous and the... More

I agree with the other reviews it's a terrific spot to sit and enjoy the views and have drink. We had a few snacks and they were average but passable, don't go there for a meal.
