I was really looking forward to dining at Quay, been wanting to come here since last year and my boyfriend made it a surprise for our 5th anniversary. We came at 8.00pm and was promptly served the drinks menu. We waited around for the food menu, so after waiting for 30mins my boyfriend tried to ask the waitress and she... More

Peter Gilmore is not just a chef he is an artist on the plate. Every aspect of our meal was out of this world, nothing myself or my wife has ever come close to this. My beef was so good and my wives mud crab she said was one of if not the best thing she had ever eaten, and... More

We were lucky enought to be invited to a friend's son's wedding at this venue. They booked the whole 3 floors and we were looking forward to a quality evening. We were not disappointed. The setting is magical. The beverages flowed and the cocktails were amazing. The finger food was the best I've ever had. Decorative mouthfuls that exploded in... More

On a recent Friday evening in early November I had the really good fortune to be invited by my company to a top level evening meal at the impressive Quay Restaurant. Our large, business group occupied the upper floor of this spectacular restaurant with unbelievable, uninterrupted views east towards the illuminated Sydney Opera House and the rising moon in the...

We went to the Quay to celebrate my daughters engagement and also to consider the restaurant as a potential venue for her wedding. The whole experience was disappointing. The food was very rich and heavy. The most disappointing aspect of the night was the service by the staff. They seemed like they were just going through the motions particularly when... More

I've been to Quay twice. The first time, I would rate it as one of the most enjoyable restaurant experiences I've had. The second time - terrible. We were a party of four at lunch time recently, and ended up choosing the 8 course degustation hoping for a lovely family meal, unfortunately it will be remembered very poorly. My parents... More

Quay is a whole level above every other 3 hatted restaurant in Sydney (minus Rockpool on George which I haven't yet been). Every dish is made to perfection, the service is impeccable and the whole experience is worth every penny. A must visit for a special occasion, and make sure you book way way way in advance.

Absolutely Decadent. The view of the harbor is fantastic, the staff are professional and friendly and the entire experience is exceptional. You can do a subset of the tasting menu if you're pressed for time, but I recommend you spend the 3.5 hours to get the full experience. Each course has subtle and complex layers of flavor and I enjoyed... More

We had to book six months in advance for this meal, and even then couldn't get a table on a Friday or Saturday. So expectations were high, and I'm pleased to say that they were met. The food is almost faultless. The only course I wouldn't rave about was the seafood in XO sauce, which was far too salty for... More

I went in the Quay in the late 2010. I knew that it is one of the best restaurants in the world so I had high expectations. And they proved right! I remember I had a meal with a grilled crocodile tail. I've never thought this could be so delicious! Together with the view at the Opera House this turned... More
