Remember to book well in advance and ask for the great view. The restaurant is at the end of the Overseas Passenger Terminal on the side closer to the bridge. The restaurant has it's own elevator. If you make a mistake and take the elevator closer to the front of the pier you can walk around back to the restaurant elevator. The view is stunning in the evening and night when the bridge and Opera House light up. Remember to go down and walk on the pier to take in the full views. The food is delicious and beautifully presented.

My husband and I are "foodies", we love to eat, drink and we have been to a number of top 50 restaurants in the world, and were looking forward to the visit at Quay - one of the highlights of our trip to Sydney!

The environment and settings of the restaurant are breathtaking. You have spectacular views on the Sydney Opera & Harbour Bridge. Wine list was very good : strong selection and all price range!

However, the food was so disappointing. We were four of us for dinner, and we all choose different dishes within the 4 course tasting menu. The food was good but nothing spectacular, I would even say it was average. Only one of the desserts stand out : Snow Egg!

The restaurant is now closed for refurbishment, hopefully they will also refurb the kitchen and make it as outstanding as the restaurant views!

We are foodies, have been to a number of top 50 restaurants, and were looking forward to the visit at Quay. We found the food underwhelming and the experience slightly pretentious. I was hoping that the snow egg will save the dinner, but it was as underwhelming as the rest of the menu.

The drinks list was excellent, and the Tasmanian cider was the star of the evening... That's not enough though.

The restaurant was about to close for renovation when we visited - hopefully, when it re-opens the concept and quality will change.

Unbelievable food and wine. Service was right on point but the decor was very dated. Amazing views and the desserts are to die for.
