“Exceptional view good food and service. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Ambiance is extraordinary and you have the best view of Sydney harbour. I had a local fish Which was just beautiful. And the wine selection is great. The fantastic boy who served us was very professional and friendly at the same time! Must try if you are in Sydney.

“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

I requested for outdoor seating in my reservation made 2 months back and was promptly shown to a table in the terrace. The view was excellent, especially being able to see the harbour before and after sunset. We had the prawns, trout and chocolate dessert, all of which were not bad and well portioned.

For the view, paying about $40 per main was a fair price and I would go back if I wanted a nice view of the harbour.

“Good quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We had one of the best seats, table 415 from what i remember. Food was good quality prepared well. The seafood is the go seeing thats their specialty. The Tandoor trout is a must to try. They have imported the tandoor and the taste is very subtle, not overwhelming the tasmanian trout. Service is excellent and the view is awesome.

“Very good food in excellent location with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Having spent a week in Australia for business I had several business lunches and dinners. Cafe Sydney was hands down the #1 experience. Great location, very good food and excellent service - it is especially worth to mention the service as during my visit in other restaurant service was usually the most problematic part of the dining experience.
Next time in Sydney I will definitely visit Cafe Sydney again and this time hopefully with my wife.
Strongly recommended both for business, date or a nice evening with friends/family.
