A very, very good restaurant. Fantastic food, amazing wine, beautiful setting and very friendly staff. The snow egg is incredible; we had it with cherry, but this can change depending on the fruit they have in. This should be on the to do list of everyone who enjoys good food.

One of few top nosh in Sydney for both great food and service with THE View. Of course, Peter Gilmore's signature dish Snow egg dessert was so scrumptious. Strongly recommendable for seafood lovers.

I have no words to say how much we enjoyed their food and professional service... We ( me and my wife) went there to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was a unforgettable experience... We took the four course menu and it was one of the best I ever had... Soon after I thought, why I didn't order the tasting... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to be guests at a private party in this stupendously located The Quay, restaurant, cheek by nose beside the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, and no cruise ship at the International Terminal to block out the vista to the ever busy Circular Quay with the city backdrop. The food and wine was... More

A little dissapointed this time. The service was not as good as it has been in the past and the food has become more about theatrics and presentation, rather than exceptional food. It is a tradition for my Partner to have his Birthday here, but he has decided not too as he was less than impressed this time.

I have attended Quay a number of times over the years, and while the food is very good I understand why its gone from in the top 20 to 60th. I have eaten at hatted restaurants all over the world and while the food is a great standard - the service is so poor, I struggled to leave a tip... More

We chose the 8 course tasting menu and the classic wine flight, the waiter did explain to us that 2 items on the tasting menu were infact incorrect (1 dish would have no sea urchin, and the whiting would be replaced by snapper). It's a shame that a restaurant of this standard (3 hats) was unable to reprint the menus,... More

Everything done at Quay is carried out to perfection.... but you would expect no less from a restaurant like this. The 8 course degustation menu could not be faulted - but at $243 you would also expect this. However, it was worth it. The 4 people in my party could not find a dish between them that disappointed. Naturally some... More

From the foyer to the top of the stairs,this restaurant sparkles. Glass reflections showcase sydney harbour to it's best. Service here is attentive yet never intrusive. All courses were explained before ordering and again as they were presented.wine list was extensive ,with all tastes and budget being catered for. The food was equally impressive and every mouthful gorgeous. You could... More
