We stopped here for a drink and some nibbles. The service was excellent. The drinks were tasty and the food was delicious. I would go here again.

This bar two levels above Circular Quay is a nice spot for a late afternoon or evening drink. Generally not too crowded and close to the Opera House it is easy to grab a comfortable seat with a view out to the Harbour Bridge and overlooking the ferry wharves below.
The bar food menu has an extensive choice of light interesting snacks to accompany a glass of wine or two.
Music with a DJ can be a bit overwhelming later in the evening so go early.

I've been here several times for a drink and it's great; nice view, good service and choice of drinks. Today we had lunch which could not possibly have been made by a chef - and it's a smart hotel! Tasteless burger and a Caesar salad with 'dead' bacon - who knows when that was cooked, a hard egg and no Parmesan or salt and pepper. Edible but a 12 year old could do better. Maybe following a recipe would be a good idea! No more eating here.

I love this bar for a lazy afternoon drink. Had mojitos and the squid. The view is awesome and for those of us not from Sydney this bar allows you to take it all in with a fantastic cocktail in your hand. Love it, and I just keep coming back every time I'm in Sydney!!!!
