After our long night stroll going to the famous Sydney Opera House, we decide to eat dinner at Cafe Extra. The waitresses were thoughtful and prepared our table with kids crayons and doodle sheets. The food was quickly served. The taste is worth the price. Average diner. Better option compared to Hungry Jacks.

We were waiting for our ferry to Manly and decided to have a quick bite for lunch. We ordered and by the time the food came out it was almost time to board. The staff were very helpful in getting us takeaway containers and we managed to get our food and eat away. It was very good even though we... More

Ideal for that early morning breakfast. The service is quick and friendly with the great people watching setting of Circular Quay.

Nice meal, reasonable price, good atmosphere. I had the fish and chips (small portion, but very filling). Husband had the Victoria Mixed Grill and really enjoyed it. Portion sizes were good and waitress was very friendly.

Each time we have been to Sydney we have a meal here. The location is amazing, right on Circular Quay and perfect for seeing the ferries, cruiseships, buskers and general people watching. We got the front corner table which gave us a prime view of the harbour activity. The waitress was pretty efficient, although we had to ask for water... More

The staff were very friendly and able to point out everything on the menu my sister could eat being gluten free. But the wrong meal was sent to me and the food was very average. Love the fit out of the restaurant though!

We had Monday am breakfast and watched the passing parade of workers coming in off the ferries. Nice hot breakfast but I asked for poached eggs and got scrambled. I could not wait long so I didn't return it. Food tasted nice but bacon and eggs should be accompanied by toast slices, not a toasted bread roll! $15 for a... More

I have been to Cafe Sydney several times and it never fails to disappoint. The food, the service and the views can't be beat. Highly recommend to do New Years Eve at Cafe Sydney and try and book a balcony table
