“Surly inefficient bar staff, getting away with it for the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The location is great, but the staff are really average and the service slow. Have been here many times and the only reason I've returned is because of the views. If it was anywhere else I wouldn't bother as it is expensive and snooty.

Great views and cocktails make this a very packed venue despite it's prices. Wonderful cocktails exquisitely made or a coffee. Your choice but worth it.

Great place to have a few cocktails before stepping out. Amazing view out over Darling Harbour. Great place to meet after work or before dinner.

“Excellent bar with fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Lots of free drinks - soft and alcholic drinks - as well as tapas dishes such as suchi, pastries, little bbq meats, etc. And the service is really very professional. And foremost the view on the harbour is impressive.
