“Great Views, Food and Service”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

This is a must on any Sydney visitors list. We dined here last Friday night and had a lovely time. The view is to die for, friendly and welcoming service and lovely seafood. The desert was the highlight of the meal. Wine is pricey and is marked up well over 100 percent, which is a bit cheeky. Having said that it is a great place to dine and we would return, which is the best recommendation you can give a restaurant.

“Bungalow 8 at Kings wharf Sydney”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

I have been going to Bungalow 8 since it open, for years. It was always a great cool place to eat and drink. I took many interstate visitors, whom all love it. But Last week, 2nd of April. I had a disappointing chicken caesar salad for lunch with my guests. It was gritty, sandy. Both salads at the table had the same gritty feel between your teeth.
I was even more disappointed in the manager who tried to convince me he had an excellent staff and there could be no mistake on there behalf. Obviously, both of us at the table were wrong.... Most managers would be grateful for the heads up, a simple mistake, and oversight.
I would usually rate this place high, but for some reason, it's changed...... Gone down to a number 2 rating for me........ Plenty of places to eat around there. If you do end up at Bungalow 8, drinking is still cool and if you feel peckish and can't be bothered moving..... Beware of the sandy salads.

“World class location, great food, and great service”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Cafe Sydney has to be one of the best locations in the world, with outstanding view out over Sydney Harbour, Circular Quay & the Opera House. I've been visiting this locations for years. Food, wine & service are all excellent.
