“Great Food and Service with an amazing view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Went here last Saturday night for a romantic dinner just two of us. We sat right next the window, which had an amazing of the water and Harbor Bridge, even though it was cold and raining the whole day it did not damped the view at all.

Having wanted to eat at this restaurant for quite some time the food defiantly lived up to the hype!
Entree and mains were great, and we were so happy to have ordered dessert - that was amazing. We were so full and stuffed by the end, you could practically roll us out!

Price wise it was reasonable considering we had entrees, main and dessert with wine not a place you would dine all the time but nice to spoil yourself every now and then.

Would like to come back for lunch and experience the view in the day time.

Only negative is you have to book a long time in advance, being the Saturday night it had to be booked 3 months prior but you expect that for place like this.

“Great food, service and view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

My family and I ate in Cafe Sydney for my parents Wedding Anniversary and had been told by many people how great it was. We were not disappointed! We were lucky enough to sit outside and luckily the weather was sunny even though it was winter. We had a lovely meal and everyone was really impressed with everything we had. As it was a special occasion we took advantage of all the courses and different wines with courses and everything was top notch!

We ate on a Sunday afternoon and we were booked in later in the service, however no one gave us timings when we need to be out. We arrived early and didn't delay any of the meal, but towards the end of our meal the staff started clearing away the balcony, moving tables and winding up the awning which made it freezing cold! It really ruined the end of the meal but we still had a lovely time.

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I had dinner at Cafe Sydney after 2 friends recommended it. It was amazing! We sat outside, the view was spectacular! They gave us blankets to keep warm in addition to the the heaters. The service was great. It's a trendy hot spot if that is what you are looking for. Definitely worth a visit for couples visiting Sydney for the first time!

Great food, great location, ticks all the right boxes. We used our Entertainment book gold card with no problems and it made for a good saving. Wonderful restaurant for a special occasion.
