Went their for lunch. Food was OK but the attitutde of the bar staff was shocking. Surly and disinterested. They rained passive aggressiveness on everyone there. Will not return.

We first had a meal here 2 years ago when visiting Sydney. We enjoyed it so much, it was the first thing we booked on a return weekend away. It did not disappoint - fine service and a great menu, finely prepared. The rest of...More

Popped in for a quick beer last evening. It's a great little place. Friendly staff and good service. Easy to get to from circular quay. Not too pricy either.

Killing time before meeting friends, I popped in to this classic pub for a bite and a brew. This is a decent pub - reasonable prices for good pub food with prompt service. Nothing special, but no complaints whatsoever. The pulled pork tacos were moist...More

The restaurant was half full. Service was ok but not great. Ordered the fillet steak, ordered medium rare came out closer to rare but the meat was great. Great wine by the glass. Definitely a good spot for a business lunch

What a great rooftop bar and friendly staff. We popped in Saturday arvo and got a great table with a heater. Had burgers and mushroom arancini balls... All good. Maybe it can be the company you are with that makes a place fun .. But...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
