Wow what stunning views! Top that with great food, a tempting drinks menu and you've got a seriously awesome venue both day or night. Service was also impeccable! Credit to team leader Ed, well done on your fantastic customer service.

ECQ Bar on a recent sunny Saturday was the place to be. Overlooking the ferry terminal at The Quay including Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge. Tapas style food was delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive. We were a table of 12 including 3 young children. Space for the kids to move about a little without annoying other... More

We recently enjoyed a relaxed tapis style lunch here and it was just great. From other comments here I assume this is a new menu. We found the food different and delicious. The view is of course fascinating and at lunch time the bar/restaurant was not crowded, the staff were attentive without being intrusive and it was all very nice.

ECQ bar is one of my favourite places to visit in Sydney. The bar overlooks the Harbour and Harbour Bridge. Snacks and tasting plates are available. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney this is definitely the place to go!!

We went to ECQ Bar on late friday afternoon. The bar itself was clean and tidy, the staff were helpful and very friendly and polite. The view was magnificent on a friday afternoon with blue skies and waiting the ferries come and go with the back drop of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay. The downside was not many tables...

Couches, table/ seats or bar stools. - Can reserve seats ahead of time. - Perfect place to begin your evening or have an afternoon beverage. Negatives: - Can often be... More

This used to be a great restaurant but since an ownership change it has gone downhill. Notwithstanding the good food, the waiters were apathetic and the wine list was deplorable. Of a limited wine list of about 6 reds, the first two (including Penfolds - a very accessible wine) were sold out and the expensive 2009 turned out to be... More

We stopped here for a drink and some nibbles. The service was excellent. The drinks were tasty and the food was delicious. I would go here again.

This bar two levels above Circular Quay is a nice spot for a late afternoon or evening drink. Generally not too crowded and close to the Opera House it is easy to grab a comfortable seat with a view out to the Harbour Bridge and overlooking the ferry wharves below. The bar food menu has an extensive choice of light... More
