“Fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Food and atmosphere was great - good value for money buffet and well worth a return visit. The staff were very obliging and made our visit a pleasant one. We sat outside the restaurant over looking the hotel bar and the hotel is such a beautiful place - you didn't think you were in the 'corridor'.

“When the weather's good it can't be beat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The views are stunning and the food and bar are good to. On a great sunny day or afetr a show its a great place to kick back and watch the world go by. I've been many time and will go many more.

“Good lunch with amazing views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here twice both time having the slider board a selection of 3 mini burgers - beef, chicken and mushroom - very tasty. All washed down with James Boag Tasmanian beer.

The location is great we sat outside with a view of the Opera house in front of us and the harbour bridge behind - it was perfect sitting in the sun staring at these beautiful structures. But beware of the seagulls!

Good enough to want to stay longer, left happy and contented with a few dollars left somehow.With good service & that view waiting outside, it was worth it, great.

“Ahh - Sydney how perfect are you?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

A wonderful place to take international/interstate visitors to show off Sydney at its finest. Who cares that the roads are gridlocked when you are sipping on a cocktail, looking out at the harbour bridge.
