Too tired from traveling to venture out, I took the lazy option and stayed-in. Happy to report that the food was great, the wine even better and the service best of all.

We dined here on a voucher which included 3 courses and wine. The food was exquisitely presented, and delicious. We had 3 choices for each course, and none could be faulted. The surroundings were elegant, and the service perfect. Highly recommended!

My husband and I ate dinner at this restaurant in February of 2016 with our tour group. We both ordered the barramundi which was delicious. The rest of the meal - salad and dessert was also delicious and the service was very good.

Very disappointing to travel so far and find the place closed for the weekend! Very hard to rate any other way when it doesn't actually cater for the traveller. Also would be nice for this information to be passed on when bookings are made at the Stamford.

A great place to eat if you are going to see something at the Opera House. Service is quick and friendly and the food is yummy. Dessert was particularly yummy. I enjoyed sitting near the window and looking up into the street. Also beautifully furnished.

If you enjoy Queen Anne furniture and ambience, and old fashioned service, this facility is for you. High teas, and a sophisticated menu come at a price, but are well worth it especially for special occasions.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
