場所はオーストラリアのシドニー、セントラルエリアから少し逸れた場所に位置します。 ジャンルはモダンオーストラリアンでして、名前の通り日本人シェフがオーナーさんのお店。 このモダンオーストラリア料理というジャンルの定義は難しいですが、調べたところでは、各国料理の食材や調理法を取り入れた新しい料理との事。 こちらの場合、フレンチジャパニーズがベースのモダンオーストラリアンスタイルです。 こちらはグルメ通に言わずと知れた、以前はオーストラリアで最も予約が取りにくいレストランと称されていた、オーストラリアを代表する一つのレストランです。 過去にはワールドベストレストランで2005~10年の5年連続上位にランクインし、最高で4位を獲得された世界をも代表するレストランでありシェフです。 ただ10年からはランクインされておらず、そのきっかけとして10年にシンガポールに支店を作られ、テツヤ氏がほぼそちらに移行されたという情報があり、現在のクオリティは未知です。 ただ現在でも、トリップアドバイザーのシドニーエリア約4600件中8位にランクインしているトップ評価で、「グッドフードガイド」でも2ハットを獲得されています。 ※オーストラリアではミシュランガイドはありませんが、その代わりとなる「グッドフードガイド」という分かりやすいネーミングの雑誌が発売されており、本国ではミシュラン星ならぬ「シェフハット」という名目で3ランク付けにして発表されています。 シドニーに行くと決めてまず、すぐにこちらのお店を予約しました。 行くと決めたのが約1ヵ月前、予約に不安を持ちながらも翌月の週末は全て埋まってましたが、平日は比較的空いている日もあり、嬉しい事に行ける事を楽しみに当日訪れました。 外観は門から庭があり、お屋敷の様な非常に豪華で高級感のある佇まいです。 店内も同様いくつもの広々とした空間に、まず入口すぐ右にはウェイティングバーがあります。 通路を通ってメイン会場となるレストランに入ると、そこには大きな絵画がたくさん飾られた 和モダンな店内に加え、窓からはライトアップされた素敵な中庭が覗きます。 これだけ豪華な作りのレストランは国内はもちろん、海外含めてもそうないと思います。 席数が多く最初は空いた席もありましたが、平日ながらすぐに満席になりました。 メニューは$230+サービス料11%の一律のみです。 では料理詳細に。 ・Bred ・Rosted Scampi Tail with Vanilla ・Tuna with Finger Limes & Saltbash ・Confit of Ocean Trout, Salad of Celery & Apple ・Base Groper with Sugarloaf Cabbage & Black Garic ・Miso Cured Duck Breast with Sunflower & Leaks ・WAGYU Sirloin with Wild...

Thoughts from the TumbleweedsTraveller.... I often wonder how two different people can visit the same establishment and have two completely experiences. It really comes down to expectations, planning, and requirements. Go to Tetsuya's with an open mind and simply enjoy the experience. Tetsuya's is a global brand. Engage with the staff politely. The people at a table close to ours... More

My partner and I enjoy a good degustation and were excited to try Tetsuya's. From the moment we arrived the service was flawless. Firstly, the valet parking was very convenient and well priced. We arrived early but it was no trouble at all, we were shown to our table by friendly, personable staff. Service was fast, we quickly had drinks... More

I have been wanting to go for years and finally found a good occasion to go. Every minute of the dinner was amazing and totally worth every cent. Each dish is perfection, as well as the environment and service. It was a very expensive night, but I believe it was well worth it. It's not a place that you would... More

We first went to here in 2003 on a round the world trip for my wifes' birthday. Tetsuyas simply blew us away. The man himself was cooking, the food was sublime, ambiance warm and inviting and staff very casual and friendly. Fast forward to April 2017 to celebrate my birthday and how things have changed.

I haven't been to Tetsuya's for a few years but over the the years I have been a number of times and I confess to being a devotee. This resteraunt continues to set the standards for Sydney and it is an experience rather than a meal. The service is world class and the food matches. If you maintain a cellar... More

We had the tasting menu. Do have the extra mussels offered(at a price) at the beginning- they are worth it. Interesting menu but don't come here at unless you are keen on fish. Japanese/French fusion food is definitely different, though I am not sure it wouldn't be better to go wholeheartedly for one or the other. But this is unquestionably... More

Description
Tetsuya's serves a ten course degustation menu. The degustation is unique, based on the Japanese philosophy of using natural seasonal flavours, enhanced by classic French technique and utilising the freshest possible ingredients. Tetsuya designed his own on-site "test kitchen" within the restaurant to enable him to create the constantly evolving and inspiring dishes on which he has built his esteemed international reputation.

Tetsuya's offers one of Sydney's most comprehensive wine lists and our sommeliers will, upon request, match the dishes with wine available by the glass.

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.
