Beautiful night out overlooking the harbour!

The meal and drinks were really nice. Its not really a sit down and eat a meal type of place so the small menu is to be expected. The food is also slow getting there as it needs to travel from the hotels kitchens. However some things can just be overlooked as it is great views, friendly... read more

This bar is a great spot for drinks and/or lunch. It is situated right on Circular Quay and has great views across the harbour. On a nice day, they open up the windows. Ask for a table with a view and you're sure to have a great time. Food is delicious and the service good. Would recommend this venue for... More

We met friends here for an evening in winter last week. The bar is on the 4th floor overlooking the ferry terminals at Circular Quay and has open window sections which is great if the weather is nice. It is a great location for the city buzz and the wide range of drinks and exotic cocktails are as expected very... More

Went to the ECQ Bar for lunch armed with a Scoopon voucher. Lovely magical setting great views and very friendly service. However the food took about 35 mins to arrive, The crab linguine was lacking in crab and over dosed with a thick creamy gluggy sauce. The flathead fillets were fine. We ordered the chip with truffle and aioli dressing... 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!

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 however you can... More

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.
