Delicious fine dining

Don't expect large servings but what you do get is delicious and the waiter explains in detail what's on your plate.

I could mention the bad decoration, poor lighting ambience or lack of personality place but focusing on food I just can say is bad...tasteless, poor presentation, poor options and is one of those places they want them to be very fancy but has no personality nor signature food...really a waste of time and money.

I had dinner with my partner and it was absolutely wonderful. The view of Sydney harbour was stunning at night. The staff was friendly and professional. As I am vegetarian I do not get outstanding food but Altitude restaurant had seriously the best vegetarian option in my opinion. Also, they offered us a lot of free stuff such as walnut... More

A top notch fine dining restaurant. All the food was superbly cooked and presented. The staff perfectly attentive and polite. Only downside was the noise coming from the Blu bar next door. Highly recommend but you must book!

We had the four course service on a Saturday night and the food was wonderful, full of flavour, perfect portion sizes, well described by our waiter, and every mouthful was savoured. The only let down was the brioche bread which was crunchy and the chocolate peanut dessert which was very rich, and needed more zing to break up the flavours... More

Disappointing experience !! I didn’t get the table I reserved with nearly 3 months in advance. To avoid misunderstandings, I went to the restaurant and I told the attendant that I planned to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday and would like a table with harbour view for 7 guests. As I walked into the restaurant with her, I chose the... More
