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

Was here on 7th November 2014 for lunch! We decided to take the 4 course menu which allowed us a selection (quite a hard thing to choose!) Would have to say the Bay Lobster and the Snow Egg are definitely the standouts. Service was good. We took about 2.5 hours to finish our meal and enjoy the view. The staff... More

Great view, amazing service and fabulous food. Very creative and attention to detail. We were lucky that there were no cruise ships in so had a fabulous view of the harbour and Opera House. It can't be beat for the view. I return every time I am in Sydney and are never disappointed.

Second time at the Quay for a work function in the turret room. Ticks every box - the view is spectacular (not sure what it's like if there is a late departing or overnighting cruise ship - although it is in the Overseas Cruise Terminal), the food and service excellent - overall, a great experience. I hope we go back... More
