“Local treasure - my favourite Sydney Restaurant”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I’ve been to the canopy a few times now as its one of my favourite restaurants in the city (and given the size of Sydney and the range and amount of restaurants, that should tell you all you need to know)

The food range is excellent – everything from pastas and pizzas to one of the best steaks I’ve ever had and the prices are really good for what you get – great presentation and full of flavour.

The service is what makes this place great – the English guy, (Darren?), is friendly and courteous but not invasive and is one of the most helpful people I’ve met – always has a tip or two even if you don’t know what you want!

Even when the place is really busy, there is always a place to wait and with a great selection of wines, you don’t mind waiting sometimes. Last time i went, there was a busking saxophonist just down the road, who they convinced to play outside the restaurant - guy was great and was lovely to have some live music when seated outside.

Love this place and long may it continue.

“Great choice for breakfast”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

A lovely place near Hyde Park. We stayed at the Pullman however we did not want your typical buffet breakfast where you usually over eat! Just a minute from the hotel you find this really nice café/restaurant. The menu selection is great & reasonable prices. We were pleasantly surprised and disappointed we didn't stumble across it earlier. Great choice for brekkie.

“Excellent breakfast”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

I was at the Canopy by chance for breakfast. I ordered a pancake and coffee. The food was excellent (and very abundant) as well as the coffee. Very reasonable price, wide choice in the menu, efficient service.

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

We came across this restaurant by chance and are very glad we did. From the time we walked over to look at the menu on display outside of the restaurant, the service was great. The pleasant English waiter came over while we we looking and informed us of the specials for the night, without any pressure to come in. After looking at the menu, we decided to give it a go and were very happy we did. The food was excellent, and the same waiter gave us great service all night. The wine list was reasonable and the food was well priced for the excellent quality provided.
If we visit this part of Sydney again, we would not hesitate in returning for a meal.

“A super meal !!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

My wife and I were in Sydney for her birthday, and wanted to take in a show. Before going to the theatre, as this was a special occasion, we obviously needed something pretty good to eat .
We spotted Canopy's advertisement, booked it online from NZ, and duly turned up on the night.
We were thoroughly spoiled, the meal was wonderful, and the desert was something else !! The staff were attentive and knowledgeable , making it a great start to a great evening.

Many thanks to all concerned
