“View and food fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Visited last night with a group of friends for a 50th birthday. Service, food and views fantastic. If visiting Sydney and want one splurge this would be it. Worth every cent. Fantastic view of the bridge/harbour and part of the opera house. Would be just as lovely at lunchtime I'm sure.

“Great View and Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Definitely be back, had a great meal in fact one of the better meals in a long time, we were in the private room which was great as the general restaurant was quite noisy, but outside dining seemed quieter with those fabulous views. Some restaurants would play on the views and meals not up to scratch but not Cafe Sydney, meals great, in fact our whole party commented on the standard of the meal. Nothing to complain about, decent sized meals in fact rather a lot of food when you have the three courses, not cheap but not outrageous either, although wine looked on the pricier side.

“Boozy Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Maybe it was the post victory glow but the lunch we had the day after the Lions' victory was the culinary highlight of our time in Australia. The location is superb with brilliant view of the harbour. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very efficient. The food was sublime. Fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. Wine list is good too and it was a great way to spend 3 hours.

“"Speedy but great"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We booked an outside table as we heard the view was amazing and it was. We were told that if we booked at 6.30pm we would have to be out by 8.15pm, which was fine. The service was so fast that we were finished 3 courses by 7.15pm and got the feeling that we should leave asap.
The food was wonderful so it made up for the speedy service. There were so many dishes on the menu that we liked, it was hard to choose. The beetroot and goats cheese salad was so yummy, as was the duck leg and sage gnocchi main. We would go again but make sure they slowed it down a bit so we could enjoy the view a little longer.
