We are regulars at the CYCA as visiting boaties. Over the years we have enjoyed the Club’s friendly deck bistro bar area. But my advice now is eat somewhere else. For breakfast the cafe in the park is not bad. At the club the menu is boring. The offerings may sound okay but the food is woeful. Expect 5 sad small prawns on the prawn pizza. Anything coming with gravy forget it, go home and get your gravox. The chips will be okay. The only steak is usually a T-bone. Expect a tough steak with gristle. The chicken snitty is pretty bad. Okay, sounds bad. But in fairness, after I got the worst prawn pizza I’ve ever had, I spoke to the kitchen manager and sent an email to the club. Not much has changed. And the prices are over the top for poor cafe food. The club needs to really fix this up. You might come once or even twice, the view is beautiful and what a harbour, but you won’t be a regular. We needed a feed tonight and thought, oh well we’ll give it a go. 3 large glasses of Australian wine was $55. Food was bloody aweful. Try KingsCross up the road or Double Bay (Double Pay).

Went with a group of four friends for lunch! Really enjoyed it. Two of us had the kale salad which were so fresh and absolutely delicious! We also ordered the fresh olives & a side of chips. The flat bread pizza was nice and the hamburger was ok. Sitting there was quiet and lovely overlooking the marina on a beautiful sunny Sydney day.

Absolutely terrible service I am actually shocked and would give 0 stars if possible
Gerard is probably the rudest person I have come across in my life
Tried taking a friend there as I have been before - will never go again
Spoke to us in a disgusting way and snatched my phone off me twice
Really shouldn’t be hired there and in future will tell everyone not to bother

We recently visited here for lunch, and this newly refurbished venue is excellent. If your planning meeting friend s or a tourist to sydney don’t miss the opportunity for a nice refreshing meal and or drink looking over all the amazing yachts and views of sydney harbour.

Well worth the visit for the great location and wonderful views of the spectacular yachts.
The renovations are excellent with giving the Club a fresh new look. Friendly staff, good bar prices and great choice on the Menu.
Whether visiting for a refreshing drink or meal its a great venue.

Service has dropped a little at the bar, people served out of order. Restaurant has changed caterer and improved range and quality! Pricing is in line with a wealthy area without being over the top and taste is good! It's always nice near the water but it's not Hawaii, lacks music to create a vibe though they used to do it🤷‍♀️

My wife and I took a pleasant ferry ride from Circular Quay to Abbotsford - the CYCA is right by the ferry stop. We were meeting long lost friends for a reunion lunch.
This is a good place for lunch and we found the food to be of a very high quality and the location is great..

While I am an avid TripAdvisor user but I don’t often write reviews. However, I beg to differ with the last review ( Feb 24).
My husband and I had lunch on Feb 28, he had the chicken and haloumi salad and I had the smoked fish salad. Both dishes were fresh, tasty, creative and good size portions. The cider and beer where cold and large size. The GF desert was perfect (not too sweet) and the coffee just what we needed after a 15 hr flight.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the check in process a breeze and seeing all the famous race cups (Tattersall Cup) on display an added bonus.
It is a yacht club and you have to order at the counter and collect yourself. The menu choices are good. I wish our yacht club had such a varied menu, with the selection of healthy options.

How do you feel if you go to a restaurant for new year lunch with your partner and wait 30 minutes for two meals, then when the orders are ready the staff give one of the meals you paid for to other people only because they dropped their food just before you?
Well, Cruising Yacht Club in Sydney did this to me. My wife's food was given to me and then for above mentioned reason they said I have to wait another 20 minutes not even saying sorry for it. Very amateur and rude. Wishing you a going down business new year for sure.
