This restaurant is hard to find but worth the search... and walk. It is at the end of the Wharf.... of course. Quite a walk from the main wharf but worth the walk. Very laid back and good wine selection.

This place is tucked away on the end of Pier 4, Walsh Bay. It has the old world charm of an empty bonds store with super views across the harbour. Nice food and excellent Shiraz for a Saturday afternoon.

Excellent views, great atmosphere, really good food & coffee and very nice service. We went for a light meal just before sunset and it extremely pleasant, the views are amazing. We could have stayed there forever. Highly recommend.

Good food and wine with attentive service. We had a large group which took over the whole restaurant. The different balconies and break-out areas provide a good variety spaces to carry on chatting over a few drinks. The place provides for a really light roomy and fun atmosphere.

The Theatre Bar is a rare find in Sydney's self-conscious scene. It is serious without being humourless and refined without exclusivity. This is the perfect place for a quick cocktail after work, a glass of wine and some malteasers at intermission, or a long night of drinks with dear friends.

They update the menu regularly, some items stay but the majority changes. They offer a selection of small plates and large plates. A group of 4 we ordered a combo of both small & large plates to share. Highly recommend the Middle Eastern Super Bowl and weirdly enough the nachos, which come deconstructed - Yum. Have also caught up with... More

Local draught Craft Beers were a good start. The view magnificent and the food good. The staff were delightful even though they were exceptionally busy and there were delays in getting served.

We had a birthday celebration for about 30 people in the private function area on the deck. I can't speak highly enough of the service and the food. They were great to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. All the guests commented on how nice the food was and how efficient the staff were. Of course the view... More

From the minute you walk in, it feels great to be there. Friendly helpful staff and the food is fabulous. Definitely recommend the pate. The place is vibrant and for such sensational tasting food, it was incredibly fast service. Important if you are going to one of their shows afterwards. You look out on glorious views while you eat and... More

Nelson Mandela' autobiography is called "Long Walk to Freedom". We also took a 'long walk', not to freedom but the long walk to the Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf where the Wharf Theatre is in Hickson Road, Walsh Bay. Guided by signs on the stairs, and at regular intervals along the corridor, we reached the End of... More

Description
It's only fair that a theatre should have a theatre bar, right? It's true. But we're not just a theatre bar. We're an everyone bar. Drop by pre- or post-show for a drink or a few share-plates, spend the afternoon on the sofa or just sit on the balcony soaking up the view. The Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf is for you, come join us.
