Don't be put off by the name - this is a restaurant of the highest quality. Cafe Sydney is situated near The Rocks and close to the train and ferry terminals. It is at the top of Customs House with great views of the iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Book in advance and ask for a table outside on... More

Fine dining doesn't come much better than this. If you only go to one fine dining restaurant when in Sydney, make it this one. Views of the harbour are amazing, food is exceptional and wine list is extensive. Can't fault this iconic Sydney dining venue.

Do not be mislead by the name. Cafe Sydney is in my opinion a world class establishment. Offering great dining, service and views across Sydney Harbour. Food and wine selections well balanced with your needs looked after by the friendly food assistants. Out door dining area great on a balmy night. A real total dining experience.

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating in this restaurant over look if the Sydney Harbour. It's fine dining at its best with views to die for. The food offered was very high quality. For starters we had Scallops & Salad of Moreton Bay Bug. Main course was the Tenderloin Beef & Tandoori Trout. No complaints on any... More

The view is amazing!! The balcony on a sunny day is devine. The layout and decor is stylish, but if you're inside and it's a busy night it's very noisy. The service was good, with chefs suggestions being the right choice; and pairing with wines impeccable. Whilst the food was nice, I think it's a one off special occasion for... More

I had thought of splashing out on a meal while in Sydney but rejected a place on the Quay as being too much. Cafe Sydney was pointed out to me on a walking tour so I took a chance without booking and was very pleased. The grub was lovely: well presented but substantial too. The service made me feel special... More

I dined here last night with my work colleagues and was stunned at the view cafe sydney had of the harbour bridge and a glimpse of the opera house. There was a storm so we watched the Lightning across the sky above the bridge and it was incredible. Restaurant is very trendy, quite spacious but it was very dark. I... More

We had dinner here with my parents and it was a lovely experience. Food was beautiful and service impecable! Server was very nice even though we were all a bit cranky and hungry after our flight from Perth! Would highly recommend for a once off treat!
