You'll get a good size meal not like those places were the plate is big and the meal is so small you need a magnifying glass. The meals are very decent size. We booked through the app Opentable this place gets quite busy so you will need... More

Attentive service and a perfect spot in the restaurant for our gathering of six people. A breakfast menu with a wide range of options all sounding delicious. The scrambled eggs with truffle oil was a popular choice as was the Mexican themed dish. I had the Bircher- very generous serving and very tasty. Less than $25 each for breakfast and... More

You wouldn't necessarily know about this place unless you had searched for restaurants or a local person had recommended it as it's tucked away amongst the main shopping area on a first floor. It's chic, modern but warming and a fun place. The staff are fabulous, attentive and friendly. You can see the chefs working hard in an open dining... More

Had to find a nice place near Town Hall to have a business lunch that wasn't too over-the-top or touristy. I had heard that someone had opened a restaurant in the old Gowings store and was intrigued. After looking at the website gallery I thought it might suit the occasion. I called that morning and reserved a table (the online... More

A colleague and I had a business lunch which was perfect. The staff were attentive, the menu was great and the food came quickly and without fuss. Although very busy, we were able to talk and hear each other and didn't feel crushed in.

Our first visit won't be our last. We booked for four at 1:30pm and our lunch; oysters, main, dessert and coffee went most of the afternoon. The BBQ seafood dish with a fig salad was divine, as was the Seared Yellowfin Tuna with Duck Egg. For dessert, try the Rhubarb & Strawberry white chocolate balls. Yum! Service was excellent. Can't...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
