“Casual but Brilliant”

Popped in today without a reservation and wow pretty good, nice view and the food was excellent
2 x entrees, 2 x mains, 1 x dessert, 1 x bottle Pinot Gris = $267.00
All the course hit the 9 mark my Barra was excellent and wife's Duck was out of this world. Service was good and we will be back after ticking a few others off the list, go and enjoy!!

“Incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Food, service, location and views were exceptional. We reserved a table outside and it was definitely worth it, they even have blankets and heaters if you get cold. The view is amazing and was only topped by the knowledgeable staff and gorgeous menu, I could have ordered anything on the menu. I will definitely be going back.

“Great Views, Great Service, Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We went to Cafe Sydney for our Anniversary Dinner, and we were treated to the very best Sydney has to offer. The service was impeccable from the host desk, to the bar, to our waiter. The menu was quite diverse, and more like an American menu (rather than a degustation foodie menu), and everything we had was really spectacular. The view of the Harbor from atop the old Customs House in Circular Quay is matchless.
