We had the degustation menu, and it was quite a treat. The food and wine was well matched and the view is spectacular. The service staff were very knowledgable and friendly and i would certainly go back, given another trip to sydney.

You could spend all night just looking at the window at the panoramic views of Sydney. The food was excellent and certainly met our needs.

Fantastic bar that overlooks Sydney Bridge and harbour is where the evening starts. Be early otherwise all the window seats are gone and make sure you book for your meal well in advance.

The best views of the city for sure but the food was average for the cost of the meal I have certainly dined in better places in Sydney - however just for the views I think it is worth going once.

Backed by super service and product knowledge, dinner in Altitude is among the finest in Sydney. The game dishes on the menu are beautiful, and the wine list is greatly extensive, and the views are beyond comparison while dining. A true Sydney dining experience.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

Figure on about $150+ for two, including a glass of wine for two. The menu varies frequently, so your dinner choices will dictate the final amount. We have found it to be a 'nice treat". Service is wonderful, food is... More
