Dinner: Monday - Friday: open, Saturday: 5:00pm - 11:00pm
We had a lovely night last night for my parents wedding anniversary. Staff were lovely and welcoming and made a special effort for the occasion.
Food was lovely , ambiance and views great
I would highly recommend
Beautiful spot with great food and service.
Food was amazing, great service and awesome views
Service was exceptional, staff were attentive and friendly, attention to detail was excellent, great wine list, views are spectacular, would recommend to book outdoor seating to make the most of the view blankets are provided so it still makes it lovely and cosy!
As one of our group put it ' Bloody awesome !' Amazing from start to finish.
Exceptional service and advice on dishes from Ashleigh...may have spelt it wrong...apologies.
We all agreed that every dish was full of flavour and perfectly cooked and presented.
Steaks cooked exactly as requested and pork delicious.
We have travelled and eaten in many large and small restaurants and give praise only if earned, as it is here.
This was a perfect celebration evening.
We had a booking for 8:30, but they did not seat us until 9:00. The food was okay, nothing spectacular.
Great food, great service, pleasant surroundings and wonderful view
Great food, location and service. One of my favorite restaurants that I regularly buy gift vouchers for. However totally inflexible re accommodating extra guest who flew in that day and spontaneously surprised me by turning up at the restaurant. Restaurant Wouldn’t move us even though the table next to us was empty for the whole time we were there . we also offered to squish in where seating wouldn’t affect the waiters but we’re told no. Friend sadly left.
Great Food and Great Service..Great Ambience...
The food was amazing but unfortunately the service was not. The staff were so busy and being a table of 2 it was hard to get their attention at times and at no time did our allocated waitstaff have time to come and check that everything was going well. So, I’m have to say that the service let things down.
We also ordered cocktails at the start but they arrived after our entrees.
I attended Cafe Sydney for the first time in celebration of my sisters birthday. It was a lovely dinner with scenic views. I highly recommend sitting it the outdoor area as the views and ambience is beautiful. The wait staff were very knowledgable and friendly. Although adding in time for photos does take some time, it does limit time if you wish to do a 3 course meal in the booked time frame. It is perfect that Cafe Sydney allows you to move onto the bar area to have dessert and further drinks.
Great food, excellent service and the best view of Sydney Harbour
The view, ambience and service. Fantastic location for a special celebration.
Great menu, food was exceptional, staff were very attentive.
Great venue, service and food
So glad I booked this venue to celebrated my 13th wedding anniversary. Couldn't have asked for a better table position to enjoy our food with a spectacular view. Thank you for taking care of us and for the special 'happy anniversary' dessert plate.
Shown to our table which was an instant wow factor overlooking the opera house and Sydney Harbour bridge.
Staff were friendly from start to finish with a good wine selection.
As for the meal, I’m no expert but loved all three courses which was probably one of the best meals I’ve ever had.
Well done to the chef and all the other members of staff who made this a great evening
Fantasicnin every way!
All good. Excellent service. No wait time. Tasty food.
Found dining at Cafe Sydney beautiful views excellent service very happy and efficient staff an very relaxing atmosphere and the food was very delicious had a very enjoyable day and the espresso martini was magic.
Lunch for 3 family members. The restaurant was largely, previously unknown - apart from media compliments.
The balcony-edge table offered spectacular views. Our waiter was pleasant, informal and not over-bearing; just there when needed and with low key advice and information.
Our choice was main courses only as this had to be a fairly quick lunch. Pork for one, chicken for another, John Dory from the Specials menu - complemented by duck fat potatoes. All beautifully cooked and well-presented.
Had a really relaxing lunch with my wife. Food was spectacular as was the view. Service was really good, especially given how busy the restaurant was. Can't wait to return.
I hadn’t been to CS in about five years but chose it to celebrate a special joint birthday with a friend. Immediately I remembered why I loved it. It was one of the best meals I’ve had. High quality as you’d expect, generous portions, accompanied by an exhaustive wine list. When combined with killer views of Circular Quay on a Sydney summer night, it’s unbeatable. The waiters were friendly and attentive.
Everything was fantastic!!!
From the moment of the booking until the moment we walked out of the restaurant we felt taken care of and made to feel special, comfortable and welcome.
The food was superb with comfortable portions. The service was attentive without being intrusive and very professional, yet personal...not always an easy mix.
The table was great with a view only Sydney can provide. Would go back in a heartbeat!
Cafe Sydney has been a long time favourite for us. However, not sure we’ll be back anytime soon. As soon as you sit down you are rushed to make dinner choices, constantly reminded that you need to vacate the table soon. Not in the most tactful manner either! We might as well have been eating in a food court...we could hardly finish the second bottle of wine before being “pushed” to leave. Oh and the portions of food have diminished - starters and mains (no time for dessert) and still left hungry
Disappointed with the tandoori salmon, pretty tasteless, soggy skin & meat
Great service and location. Cool scene and great food 👌
Loved this place!!! Waiter was attentive and added to the experience. Food was fresh and creative.
Food and service were fantastic. Appreciated the kind and friendly staff, the food turnaround was efficient however we were not rushed out the door. Great for a business lunch.
No complaints about the food or the location my only complaint was our main waiter. He seemed to have an attitude, he wasn’t overly friendly and we felt rushed. He seem too busy talking to his work mates rather than attending tables or ours at least
Love dining at Cafe Sydney. Delicious meal high quality presentation and great menu!!!! We had a lovely waitress who was very helpful. Only annoying noise was the drilling down below. Beautiful view and ambiance. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Very nice spot, my second time. Busy staff meant level of service was good, without being intrusive. The food was very well cooked and presented. At $130 per head not exactly cheap, but we didn't expect that. A nice spot for lunch on a bright sunny day with the harbour & Kirribilli to look across at.
We had a wonderful dinner recently at Cafe Sydney. The staff were efficient and down to earth. The food wasn't too fussy or fancy - honest flavours and great options.
We were a party of 7 and had a fabulous night. Great food and service, beautiful views and fun atmosphere.
Our party of 10 were celebrating a 70th birthday. We had a wonderful evening. The service was efficient,friendly but unobtrusive, the view across the harbour bridge magnificent. They even managed a full moon for us.
From the moment we got out of the lift and were greeted on arrival till we paid our bill - a perfect occasion! Our waiter for the evening "Dallan from Dallas - Texas" was outstanding - funny, attentive and knew every single element of our meals and choices. It made the visit even more memorable - we have not been there for quite a while but clearly every bar has been lifted - to the point where we are on the "wait list" for New Year's Eve - fingers crossed -
Had a great experience. Food and service were exceptional
Booked for a special occasion after recommendations. Very disappointed with food. Nice view. Wouldn't be returning unfortunately.
Disappointing i had to book soo far in advance. Previous time I went was much more special. Service was too much and over bearing, pecorino tart entree was smothered in creme fresh and no taste. Steak was over cooked and tuff. We had to be seated late due to rain, yet we were completely under cover, late start to the meal making some choices unavailable.
