Modern Australian
The Squire’s Landing tells the legend of James Squire; a convict on the First Fleet but perhaps more importantly, Australia’s first brewer. The venue is a two storey restaurant and brewhouse with a freestanding, fully glazed microbrewery overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. It is here that The Squire’s Landing’s Head Brewer crafts exclusive small batch brews onsite, whilst working collaboratively with Malt Shovel Brewery to deliver outstanding James Squire Limited Releases and nine core range beers and cider.

With 270 degree views spanning Circular Quay, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, The Squire’s Landing is the ideal spot for a night out, a special occasion or simply a relaxed get-together with friends. The menu is a collection of unique modern Australian flavours, woven together by inspiration from the legend himself!

My steak was raw with fat throughout. Food was poor quality. Generally a poor dining experience.

Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was amazingly well cooked, consistently. I couldn’t fault a dish. Just wish we had room to try the dessert too!

We were seated window side, which gave a great view. The food and service definitely exceeded expectations. Far more impressive than just a pub by the water..

First time at The Squires Landing and we weren't disappointed. Welcoming and attentive service,high quality menu offerings paired with a great wine & beer list .... but the views of the Bridge & Opera House from our " front row " table were the cherry on the cake ...let alone the Happy Birthday written in chocolate on my dessert ... we were entertaining Canadian visitors and they were suitably impressed ... a great way to start off their Downunder holiday ...we will be back

My vegetarian meal was good. Got great table and staff in general very nice. Food was great and wine was excellent. My waitress forgot about us most of the time but overseas students don’t have the local passion to do the best ....

Not a very good experience at all.
Service was extremely poor.
Our Oyster starters was fantastic.
Mains was very dry.
We left before ordering dessert.

Everything from the food to the beer were just average. The location is outstanding but would skip this as there are too many other good breweries in Sydney.

The view of the Sydney Opera House and that of the Harbourfront itself cannot be beat but that by itself wouldn't warrant a recommendation. What does is the great food, presentation, portion size and, naturally, the beers. Located at the end of the Overseas Passenger Terminal on the Circular Quay West, the extra walk past many other places is well worth it.

Fantastic service. Good wine list. Let us stay after lunch right up to 5pm. All the food was good - good menu choices for all tastes. Waitress made recommendations , all of which were spot-on.

We enjoyed our lunch,even though we were hurried along.
Unfortunately there was a cruise ship in so our view was of their dining room.
I think this restaurant has a lot to offer if you book at the right time.
The food was good as was the service

Great food and wonderful views. The service is a little hit and miss. I tried to order a drink throughout dinner but some of the staff didnt seem to understand what I was saying. Got one at the end though.

we had really slow service on the day we went, booked a table for 2pm, all orders was placed by 2:15pm but food did not come out until 3:45pm.

we had almost no communication, whilest i appriate that they had functions on, they should have at least warned us when we were ordering. I booked the place. the Team now will no longer eat here.

Staff were friendly & we were able to request a drink quickly.
Thanks for an enjoyable meal.

Overall experience was poor. Service was mediocre at best with staff switching around so much I didn’t know who was my server and who was the hostess. Ordered the grilled octopus and received 4 tiny pieces that were mixed in with burnt bacon and all I could taste was burnt “something”. The best part of the entire meal were the French fries! We ate at the Sydney Cove Seafood the next night for the same price and received a way better meal with better dishes...although the service was still terrible (a different review for a different time). Overall, disappointing, over priced, poor quality of food, and sub par service. Sorry, but cannot recommend this place for dinner.
