“View and Best Desert Souffle Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Popped in after Comedy show and asked if desert available
Seated in Bar and eventually moved to best viewing table
Petit fours great but the lightest chocolate soufflé was better than the view of the bridge
KEEP HIM AT THE OPERA HOUSE

“Degustation Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

My husband and I went to Guillame at Bennelong to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of our first meeting. We chose this restaurant because we had met the night The Opera House opened in 1973. It was the perfect choice. The Degustation Menu with matching wines was a revelation. The staff were unobtrusive yet happy to discuss the menu when we asked questions. We weren't rushed, and felt the whole experience was worth every cent. We cannot thank Guillame at Bennelong enough for an amazing experience.

“Humble and Romantic Pre-Theatre Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

With short notice, we were able to squeeze into a pre-theatre menu. Perfect intimate table was provided by the window overlooking the Quay. Gorgeous atmosphere and ambience. Ambient by candle light to paint the mood. The pre-theatre menu was a no fuss menus and there was ample time for all 3 courses within 1.5hours. My favourites were the mulloway, local rockfish soup and the oysters freshly shucked.

The sommelier very helpful and provided a tasty recommendation of wines. Waiters with attention to detail.

Thoroughly enjoyed with the partner and I.

It was reported in the press the Opera house management have put the site out for tender and the restaurant did not bid, after being there 10 years, and will close at the end of 2013.

Get whilst you can!

“Great food and Great view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had the eight course digestion with the matching wines. All dishes were executed well and could not fault the dishes, even the chocolate soufflé was cooked great but I was left wanting a different desert.

The staff are friendly and the sommelier was so helpful with the wines we liked and were we could find them in town. Being at the Opera house, had good classical music which I think was coming from the concert all and the view, best view in a restaurant. You have the bridge, circular quay with it's boats and the Sydney skyline lit up. Really romantic.

Guillaume at Bennelong will close is door on Dec 31. It's one of the better meals I've had, can't wait to try the next Guillaume establishment in Sydney .
