“Exceptional view - great food - great for people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Sat out under the umbrellas with a view of the bridge, the Quay traffic, in front of the opera house. It was a fantastic appetizer and wine spot prior to dinner. I'm sure their dinner was awesome. I enjoyed the scallop appetizer - fresh, excellent preparation, and very flavorful. This is a great location to soak up conversation, and watch the world go by down under.

“Great View!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lovely Fathers Day lunch with our daughter. This place was very busy and we didn't make a reserevation. After a short wait we were shown to our table. The staff were very friendly and the service and meal were excellent, along with the fabulous view.
We had a lovely afternoon with our daughter.

“Great Food but....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

No problem with the food at all very good. Service was prompt and professional as expected in this prime location. Only gotcha that put us off was having cockroaches crawl over my feet during the evening. Yes I know the city is riddled with them but gets me every time. Won't stop me coming back but probably during daylight

You can't fail to enjoy watching the world go by - on foot, by sea, in the air, on tracks etc etc as you take your seat right against the harbour wall ! Good menu and efficient service.......

“Dinner with view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Nice restaurant and food with view. I had dinner here last night with my staff. All is nice except the temperature during this time of the year is very cold to dine outside. Overall is good food with view.
