This is a great place to impress a special person or a loved one. Very classy and sophisticated establishment with amazing food and an extensive wine list. Highly commended especially if you are celebrating a special event.

We always enjoy any time we get to eat here. We will definitely be back! This time was a work function and they managed our group in the private dining room very well.

I agree that the location is magical indeed, the food is petote and delicious. It is a place to bring an overseas visitor,to watch nice view. Two components spoiled our experience, the price (we did not eat much and paid a lot) and the arrogant waiter who pushed us to have a drink, and to order more then we ordered... More

Great restaurant with good service and quality food. It is worth asking for a table on the balcony. This area gives a great view of Sydney Quay.

The service is very very good and the wait staff very attentive. The menu had a good selection - but be warned it is not... More

I had a lamb which I never liked before but the lamb was fabulous and delicious. They seem to have some special method of cooking and absolutely one of the best restaurant in Sydney. However, it's quite pricy and expensive but it's worth it. Highly recommend for someone who like luxurious dinner or business traveller.

My husband took me to Café Sydney for birthday celebrations and it was such a pleasant evening. Good points: fresh food prepared in a well done way and a great selection of wine. Breathtaking views especially near the windows! Can't get better views than this. Great service. The not so great: rooms are a bit too dark for my liking... More

My favorite restaurant to take guests to show off Sydney and have a great meal. Even the very well travelled are impressed with the views, the ambience and the food. It's quiet enough that you can have a good conversation without having to yell at each other, but still has a nice amount of energy in the atmosphere. It's the... More
