Though it has been a convenient favourite with tourists and theatregoers since 2000,I have been here a few times before shows at the Opera house and my experiences till recently have been average, but my last was Excellent, why? Chef Andy Evans has taken over the reins at Quayside after a lengthy stint juggling pans as one of Neil Perry's main men at Rockpool, a period at Perry's XO and at China Doll in Woolloomooloo.

The waterside restaurant serves a brasserie-style menu of modern Australian fare, which might include such dishes as cured wagyu beef with horseradish cream; or blue eye tagine with roast tomatoes, cannellini beans and minted butter.I have tried these and they are simply excellent. There are still the solid-gold views of Sydney's iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, the leisurely progress of ferries over the blue water and some of the best people-watching in the city.

Last visited here five years ago. Had lovely views over the quay which was still busy tho' it was after dark. The menu is plentiful and varied. Good position and highly recommended. (visited 5 years ago)

I have not been in any restaurant where the staff are rude and the food served is not what the menu served.
Four of us had the ill luck to visit this place. As it was initially busy we accepted a table outside. Then a storm blew up and the rain pelted down. As there was now room inide we asked to moved and were refused. Three of our party ordered lamb rump on a bed of sweet potato puree. What was served was a warm lamb rump salad and even then the meat was cold. The puree was almost non-existent and the meal size was very small. Our complaints availed nothing. STAY AWAY FROM HERE!!!
