Ate at Guillaume at Bennelong on NYE with Mrs1960, first-born and girlfriend. We did not know until arriving when fellow guest revealed this was the last night for this restaurant in the SHO. Apparently the powers that be had insisted that G lowers his sights and made the menu (presumably they meant the pricing) more accessible to the general public.... More

I had my birthday celebration at this restaurant just before Christmas. It was absolutely magical, from the view across Circular Quay (including seeing the fireworks from the Carols in the Domain), the professional and friendly service and the magnificent food. Yes, it was an expensive meal for Sydney, but it was top class French-inspired cuisine and the attention to detail... More

Had to swing by Guillaume before it closed. Managed to get in for an extra special pre-Christmas long lunch with special friends. The experience was, as expected, sublime. Food fabulous, especially the chef's special risotto with shaved truffle, and the wines, the service and the location all spot on. A great occasion never to be repeated.

My husband proposed to me viewing the harbour bridge from the opera house after having dinner at "The Bennelong Restaurant" in 1981. We then married in 1984 and have returned to the same restaurant on our 10th and 20th wedding anniversaries. We will do the same in 2014 for our 30th wedding anniversary. I was fortunate though to be treated... More

It's a place I love for my own birthday or a special treat for overseas visitors. The food and service are exemplary and there is no other restaurant that better captures what is good about the harbour and its environs. If you merely want the view and a casual cheap night, there are several restaurants nearby that have a similar... More

My third, and probably last time to dine here, due to strange decision to replace internationally renowned restaurant. Food service started badly - have some staff moved on? - but improved steadily, and Czech sommelier was very chatty and knowledgable. 8 generous, flavour filled degustation courses with decent pours of matching wines. Expensive but worth it - especially as it... More

We had dinner booked for my birthday today and it was originally fully booked, as unfortunately Guillaume at Bennelong will be making way for a more "family-friendly" restaurant from next year, but because it was my birthday, the amazing staff managed to make room for my booking. We had the three course pre-theatre meal with the Paris Mash as a... More

Very sophisticated menu and great wines. One of Sydney's finest restaurants, shame it will be closing down soon.
