My husband and I had lunch on our last day in Sydney. We used a Scoopon voucher - and it was great value. We had the bruschetta, a pasta dish each and cheesecake and tiramisu for desert. All in all a great meal.

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

I doubt that as we have purchased wine there. You can try their house wine which is quite economical as well as good.
