This place is for best friend dating. Although not inexpensive, this is money spent on fine dining above Sydney’s most beautiful evening skyline. Request and demand a table next to the window. Try the pan quail ($30) and the roast venison ($32). Move on to Riverina lamb ($43) and suckling pork ($42). Try sides of the Baby Leaves ($10) and... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed a wonderful vacation in Australia and began and ended our trip in Sydney. On both occasions, we booked dinner at Altitude. On both occasions, we very much enjoyed the very good quality culinary experience and the tremendously helpful service. The meal is not inexpensive, but it is worth the money. However, what makes Altitude... More

Fantastic meal with a great view of the harbour. Had the tasting menu with wine pairing. It was Michelin star standard but at half the price of a London restaurant. The food was great, the wine was better and the service was excellent.

I booked the private dining room for a special occasion and couldn't be happier with the level of service, the food quality and the atmosphere. Suffice to say, the view from the 36th floor looking out to the Harbour and the Opera House is second-to-none but it's not all about the view. Very simply, the food and wine are just... More

We had such a lovely night at Altitude! The epi-curious menu is a must try...don't be disheartened by the portion size - your belly will be full by dessert. Hats off to the sommelier as the wine pairing is PERFECTO! We had the best waiter we've ever come across - he knew everything about the menu and the wine...congrats to... More

We have dined all over the world and this is one of the finest restaurants we have eaten in...anywhere! The view of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House is breathtaking, and the food and service was superb. Every detail was taken care of, and the meal was simply out of this world. Just go!
