It's a pre-set 7 courses menu. It started with a 2003 Dom Perignon, then we moved to a "special room". Curtains off and we are in the kitchen, watching these amazing chefs. The waiter carefully chose each wine to match the dish.
Eevrything was excellent, but possibly the peking duck consomme stood out.
At the end the head chef came in for a chat. Just loved it.

My husband and I were able to get theatre tickets at the Sydney Opera House. Our concierge recommended Aria as a delightful place to have pre-dinner. The food was fantastic, the service incredible, the ambiance (the view of the Opera House was amazing) but it is a little pricy so save it for a special occasion you won't be disappointed.

The food, place setting was classed as fine dining with a price to match as mains were around the fifty-sixty dollar mark but the deserts were best overall. We liked the detail in presentation but have had similar experiences with lower cost.

We held our annual conference dinner at the marquee & it was brilliant. The reviews by our delegates were excellent, the food was delicious & access was easy.
