Great splurge spot for special occasions.
Beautiful views along with attentive service & outstanding food and cocktails
I was disappointed that I had to ask for someone to take our food order and to bring us some water. We were not on the staff radar at the start. The service got better as the night progressed.
Yes, we were 10 mins late - however it wasn't necessary for the lady who met us at the start, to point it out in the fashion in which she did. We were aware we had to vacate by 8:15pm. We left by 7:45.
I had expected the breadrolls to be warm. They were cold/hard. The mains/deserts were delicious.
Great service, view & food
The view is outstanding; the service superb, and by Sydney standards (or indeed any capital city - I come from London) the prices are not outrageous. But, alas, the food lacked the wow factor. It was good, but not memorable.
A fantastic location and pretty good food and service but has dropped in quality in the last years. Too many different service staff coming to the table I felt. Otherwise a great place to take international guests.
Basically food was good and service acceptable.
However after been served drinks extremely quickly, food order was not taken for 25 mins.
Shared another memorable lunch at the Cafe Sydney. The food was excellent, as usual. Also had oysters, which were some of the best I have ever had. An outstanding restaurant in a great location.
I recently booked a table for four for Sunday lunch as we had family visiting from Perth.
It was 39 degrees the day we went. There was no air con or fans in the dining area of the restaurant. We were so uncomfortable with the heat and humidity we only had a main course and decided to leave it at that. We went elsewhere for dessert and made sure to pick somewhere with air conditioning so we could cool down some bit.
Expected better from a fine dining restaurant.
Excellent food and good service. The only disappointment was we were asked to leave as the next setting was due to arrive even though we were still waiting for our coffee to arrive.I wasn't aware there were settings.
Everything was perfect. The food was truly perfect. No words can describe.
Amazing food selection, best to share so you can enjoy various dishes.
Had a fantastic waitress (Nicole).
my favourite restaurant
The team were very patient as we were late for our booking and they had to evacuate us for a fire alarm. The food, our waiter, the view were all wonderful.
Cafe Sydney is my favourite place and has been for many years. I love the food, service & atmosphere. I dined there last night with international guests. As usual the vibe and the view did not disappoint however, I am sorry to say the service (rude waitress), the food (was sub par) and the wine was very average. The waitress was recommending dishes and wines that really she knew nothing about and for some reason she was having a bad night. I feel my favourite has slipped a bit.
Nice to dine in Cafe Sydney!
Great dinner with friends we haven’t seen for some time. Good atmosphere great service , food and wine.
It was for my husband’s birthday , I thought it was a nice touch when the wrote happy birthday in his dessert plate and they also brought candle .
Great food and service! The staff made sure they got our food out in a timely manner, as we had tickets for an event at the Opera House after dinner. Highly recommend for a fancy, special occasion dinner.
Cafe Sydney continues to deliver great food, a great environment, and a great view.
Cafe Sydney provided exceptional service, delicious food with excellent presentation. With the scenic views it is just the spot for a special occasion or if you are trying to impress someone.
Took some overseas business guests for a casual lunch. Everything was top draw!
Amazing restaurant. Beautiful views, great service and delicious food. Best beef I’ve ever had.
We had an exceptional dinner with the backdrop of the Opera House and the Harbor Bridge. We were seated outside on a beautiful Sydney night to celebrate a special birthday in the family. We couldn't ask for more. Even the Queen Mary II was in town. The food and wine and great service didn't disappoint. Really great ambiance and buzz. Really memorable evening!
The dining experience was lovely (great food and service), however the main meal took way too long to be delivered and with a '2 hour time frame' to be 'in and out', there was no time to have desert and we were more or less rushed out the door. This unfortunately did not leave a good impression especially that it was the delayed service rushing us in the end! Not good for a restaurant in that class.
Very enjoyable meal, served by very friendly staff
The food was tasty, the view is sensational and the overall experience was first class. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We were celebrating a birthday and we had a great night. We will definitely be back.
The view says it all.The food was first class
Panoramic view of The Harbour Bridge and Quay, attentive service and great menu. Food tasted reealllll good too!
The dishes are divine, especially the cured salmon and bug tail salad, but the cooking of the humpty doo barramundy was great.
The white chocolate mousse with fresh raspberry cake is a killer ;-)
Our table very well placed gave us a superb view of the bridge and opera. We were delighted. Thank you for this wondeful dinner
Cafe Sydney has been an all time favourite restaurant to visit
They have however changed the wine menu to All Australian wines and we were disappointed with this change. Always nice to have some country choices
This is one of our favourite places to eat when in Sydney. The food and service is always exceptional! Fantastic that they only stock Australian wine.
Disappointing meal for the price
It would have been a special dinner as I’ve emailed way before to let them know it is my daughter’s bday, we are both traveling to Sydney , from Auckland , my daughter from Melbourne. It’s her 25th.
Sadly, the excitement turned to major disappointment because of a poor call from the reservation, the booking is at 4;15pm, the pla
What can I say? One of Australia’s premier dining locations and experiences. Can not fault it even after the third time
The food and service were exceptional. We were celebrating a birthday and had the most enjoyable time! Can't wait to go back.
The amazing view and constant service from wait staff.
Food is always consistent and you can not beat that location
Excellent views and service.
Food very good but expensive - a special treat.
