“Fantastic setting + Great food + Can Do service what else can one ask for -- A discount maybe :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Very impressed by the service at first then the food and drinks followed and made another great impression. The setting in the historic building of the Intercontinental adds lots of charm. I liked it much more than the more formal Cafe Opera :)

“Nice space but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

A lovely area to sit and enjoy a drink within the Intercontinental but the drinks are expensive, that said Australia in general was pricey for us (we're from the UK) so the Cortile wasn't alone.

“Lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I loved the way that from the moment I walked in the staff made sure that I was looked after. A good selection of wine by the glass and a great atmosphere made it a lovely place to spend some time alone.

“wonderful lounge, great (pricy) food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I stayed at the wonderful Sydney Intercontinental hotel and had there dinner and lunch few times. Yes, it is expensive, but for what you pay you get the best you can expect. The best ingredients, the best attention to small details just make these meals to a wonderful culinary experience. I tried the cheese plate that was supreme, with some manuka honey hints that blends amazingly with the cheese. I also tried the Asian platter (excellent mini rolls of Beijing duck), shrimp-tampura, gyoza and chicken satay - they were all outstanding. The service was great as well!!!
