What a relaxing way to sit down and enjoy a meal. Great food affordable with affordable prices. Ring and reserve your seating to avoid disappointment.

“Perfect Syndey Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Food was exceptionally fine and well presented. Service was excellent esp. explainatons of the wine list, particularly the Gernam whites was an education and they were a joy to then drink. The view is probably the best close up harbour view of any restaurant in Sydney.

“Quay never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Quay maintains its position as one of the leading restaurants in Sydney. Unlike many other 3 hat restaurants that exude arrogance and contempt for customers, the service was very friendly whilst remaining highly professional.

The degustation with matching wines presented an opportunity to sample many of my Quay favorites. The confit pig cheek is cooked to perfection, and simply melts in your mouth. The Chinese inspired mud crab congee was another highlight for me, where the egg yolk emulsion soup does not overpower the flavorsome crab meat.

We were lucky enough to secure the best seat on the first floor, however I would highly advise giving specific seating preferences when booking. Also, always check / ask about the cruise ship schedule to avoid disappointment when a large ship blocks the Opera House view!
