Went here for a Friday business lunch with an associate I had not met previously. The place is business oriented during the day but not so sure how it is at night. Firstly, you must understand the place is expensive. I easily spend over $600...More

This would have to be one of the most beautiful restaurant spaces on Sydney. 1920's grandeur with perfect lighting. The menu is a little overwhelming. It is so long but all 5 in our group were very impressed with the quality of the meal and...More

Really nice, bustling, fine dining restaurant in the heart of Sydney and while they do steaks etc. for me this is really a sea food place. The signature starter, 4 types of sashimi (snapper, king fish, prawn and tuna) was super and the King Prawn...More

Nearby
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
