I was in a big group with a set menu so perhaps that's why service took so long, when it did come the food was pretty good. Would come here again.

fantastic feed and coffee. The sandwiches were awesome. The scenery outside was amazing. The service wasn't the most attentive I have ever had but that's probably reasonable since the food was all delivered at once to the table.

Having walked past the building many times I found the restaurant via the Qantas booking app., Dimmi. Outside dining with river/Story Bridge views, even better than venues on nearby Eagle Pier. Interesting menu, & wine list. Efficient, friendly staff, reasonably priced. Got off to a bit of a rocky start, bread rolls were not warm or really fresh & the... More

We took a friend visiting from Japan to have dinner at Customs House and it didn't disappoint. The staff were welcoming and attentive but unobtrusive.

We had a really nice lunch at Customs House. The great location helps, of course - we were outside with lovely river views. But the food was the real star. We had lots of shared plates and they were all good. The wine list is reasonable and the service is excellent, so we had a very pleasant afternoon. Higly recommended.
