“In a class of its own”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

THE best! I do not know what else to say.
It truly is the best restaurant and nothing compares to it in my mind.
Heston's restaurant, Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower, Rockpool, Tetsuya's ... they have nothing on this place.
We have shared many special occasions here, and we are so sad to see that it will be closing.
If you can go and try it before it closes, it will be an experience you will never forget for the rest of your life.
Hats off to the Paris Mash, the wine, the degustation menu and the staff.
Thank you for making dining such an experience.

“Just a wonderful experience”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We are so glad to have the opportunity to dine here before they close at the end of the year. It was brilliant in every way. On a beautiful sunny day we enjoyed great service, excellent and delicious food and great wines. I loved all of my four courses, there are plenty of choices within each course. A large and comprehensive wine list with the sommelier providing assistance as required.
If you can get here before they close you will have a great experience.

“The highlight of our Sydney visit”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

My partner and I went for a pre-show dinner at the Bennelong Restaurant which was absolutely stunning. The abience was perfect, we attended at dusk and although we didn't have a reservation we were seated at a candlelit table in the bar section with a breath-taking view of the Harbour and bridge (and a storm playing out over the mountains in the distance). The service was speedy and the food (pork belly followed by lamb) was extremely fine as was the wine selection. The waiter was a little unwelcoming but otherwise there were no complaints whatsoever. Prices are what you'd expect for a world class restaurant

“Sydney fine dining at its best”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had an exceptional dinner there last week to celebrate my wife's birthday. Impeccable food, service and views overlooking Circular Quay/harbour bridge. I would recommend the $150pp alacarte menu, especially the signature dish of basil infused tuna and also the veal main. Even though i'm not a big dessert person, the oversized dessert tasting plate (a birthday treat from the restaurant) was unbelievable to finish. Will have to go back later this year, before the restaurant's lease expires. I can also see why they regained their 3rd hat this week in the Good Fuide awards. I would recommend this to both locals and tourists who wanted a Sydney fine dining experience at an iconic location.
