If you’re looking for a place that caters to the cruise ship crowd, this fits the bill. Food was mixed ... great oysters, but peach and prosciutto dish not good. Snapper special for main was tasty... steak too. Dessert average.

I came here for lunch, and just had one main course - which was spectacular. Angel hair pasta with swimmer crab. My favourite dish of my 3 week trip to Australia by far. Worth travelling across Sydney to sample this, in my humble opinion.

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

buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
