Very friendly attention and service from Mandy. Really nice atmosphere and decor. Entrees were delicious. My pork main was equally delicious, but my partner said that his confit duck was dry and not tender as it should have been. Great wine selection. Excellent value for...More

Because this is a training restaurant there are plenty of staff who are eager to please and the whole place is sparkling clean. We had a lovely meal: seafood croquette with prawns, confit of duck with spinach and parsnip and carrot dauphinoise, roast pork with...More

This was a new experience for us: being guests at a cooking school. But what a fantastic experience it was! We started with the lamb croustillant entrée (American translation: starter). For the main course I had the pan roasted chicken breast and my wife had...More

Cooked and served by hospitality students. The food was excellent- kingfish cerviche, beetroot salad, chicken and salmon/risotto. All very well priced to reflect that you are part of the training programme! Service was patchy and requests for advice on wine met with panic but it...More

Maybe we were just unlucky but I thought this was one of the worst restaurants we have ever had the misfortune of eating in. The food was bland and tasteless. Other diners were making complaints about the food and delays too. I could never recommend...More

I had been wanting to try William Blue Dining since walking past about 12 months ago and finally had the opportunity last night. The restaurant is fabulously located and well presented. The menu was appealing and didn't have any weird things on it like one...More

This place offers "fine dining" which is subsidised as it's part of a hospitality school. As you'd expect, service was very enthusiastic and food was pretty good. Worth booking a table if you're staying close to the Rocks - but not worth travelling across Sydney...More

Good experience, excellent food. A couple of service errors from the young students made it more charming as they tried very hard to make up. This was our second visit

We were visiting Sydney (from Brisbane), staying at the Russell Boutique Hotel in The Rocks. My wife checked out TripAdvisor for good nearby restaurants, and William Blue Dining came up as very close by and highly rated. It was a Friday night and we hadn't...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
