We went here for a special event and was really impressed with the service and menu. They easily catered for my food allergies (including gluten free), had an extensive wine list and the view was brilliant. We have been back for just a wine since.

Didn’t know what to expect when I made this booking but wow what a suprise. The view was truly amazing, I’d suggest if you can request an outdoor booking (weather permitting) do so as you get a combined view of both the Sydney Harbour Bridge...More

A clear Sydney night, a spectacular view from our table on the veranda and a lovely meal was spoilt by our unfriendly and rude (middle aged but that wasn’t the issue) waitress. Very frosty service really didn’t worry us until we paid our bill. We...More

Our favourite venue for a special occasion -- can't be surpassed. Don't rush it, relax into your leisurely chosen meal and attention by your waiter. Finally sit back and linger over coffee and a nice glass of dessert wine

I highly recommend going when vivid lights festival is on. The view of the harbour bridge is amazing as is the food and service. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion or treat!

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
