Could not fault this place. Everything was spot on from the view, the service, the food, drinks and dessert. We will definitely be returning.
Had an amazing experience for a birthday lunch.could not fault a thing. The food was amazing the service was excellent and the whole ambiance made a memorable experience. Thank you cafe Sydney it was nice to go somewhere that lives up to its reputation.
We had a lunch here for my nieces 21st. The food and service was wonderful. I was also very appreciative of the patience of the reservation staff as I needed to make quite a few changes in the lead up to the lunch. One of the highlights was the chocolate cake organised through the restaurant, it was as pretty as a picture and tasted divine. My niece had a lovely afternoon!
The staff were very attentive but not intrusive. The food was without exception exquisite- good variety and so beautifully presented. We had a glorious view of Circular Quay and the harbour bridge. Even though it was a cloudy and drizzly day the view was superb. The ambience of the afternoon was fabulous. Although there was a set time we could stay we never felt rushed. It was a very relaxed event. A most enjoyable birthday celebration .
All the reviews mentioned this to a fine-dining experience.
The food was underwhelming sadly...
Moreton Bay Bug - fresh and tasty.
Twice cooked goat cheese souffle - light, tasty, delectable.
Tandoori Ocean Trout - Hit and a miss. Flavorless..nothing 'Tandoori' about it, except for a sprinkling of the tandoori sauce on the side.
Beef Tenderloin - Hit and a miss..Flavorless. Bone marrow jus - pointless!
The staff are professional and welcoming. The food was a little patchy with the fish of the day being overcooked. I was surprised that the set up was more bistro than fine dining with some large groups of ‘blokes’ mixed with smaller mixed groups and couples. So, fabulous for simple food, drinks and a noisy and welcoming afternoon with a great view.
One of Sydney's great reataurants. Always busy because of its fabulous food & wine, and uber-wonderful staff. Not to mention the great location and rock star views.
The overall experience and food was wonderful.The only disapointment was the crab body on the seafood platter .The claws and legs were fresh and sweet,but the body of the crab was powdery.Whilst we appreciate you buy the seafood rather than prepare it from scratch,a good eye should have noticed that the body was not great.
Staff,views etc always fantastic - a great experience for a special celebration.
It was a beautiful night to view the harbour, and we were kid-free for the first time in a while, service was great and the food amazing as always
Beautiful restaurant with stunning harbour views. Excellent service & attention from staff that made our anniversary very special.
We have dined here many times whenever we are in Sydney. The food is great & so is the view. We have always found the staff friendly & efficient.
It is a special place for us & used for many special occassions
I absolutely love it here and have never been disappointed
My first visit was in 2004, my last visit last week. With many in between. It still is my favourite restaurant in Sydney.
Wine and food excellent.
Service excellent. Our glasses were always topped up.
Meals delivered at the same time.
Really enjoyed our visit to cafe Sydney. Very attentive staff, busy, wide range of food for each course. Felt cost of wine was excessive. Very noisy which did impact considerably on the occasion
Service was outstanding.
We went here for our 2nd year anniversary. We had a lunch time seating and we were amazed by all the friendly service, we loved that everyone said hello as they passed you. The food was delicious! And it has an amazing view of the bridge. They made our occasion very special by putting happy anniversary on our dessert. Would definatly go back.
Excellent evening, thoroughly enjoyed by the 4 of us. It is an expensive night out though !
A great venue - good food and great Wine List. Just love the ambiance - and service top shelf.
Most amazing view of Sydney harbour and the food was made and presented to perfection.
