Our reception by the staff was friendly and welcoming. Atmosphere completely perfect, food and cocktails were delicious and beautifully presented. Having our waitress comment on how quickly two of us ate 3 oysters each was unprofessional and below standard for the caliber of venue. I was disappointed with hearing “that was quick” upon her return to us. Beyond this, we enjoyed our experience immensely.

So grateful they were able to get the fabulous Pavlova for me even though we were in the Cured & Curated section...I had read about it many months ago and had told my friends in Pittsburgh that I was hoping to eat it as a special treat...not only was it beautiful but it was delicious!

The food was absolutely delicious especially the Wagyu beef tartare! There is something extraordinary about dining under the sails of the magnificent Opera House.

I would eat at Bennelong every week if I could. From the greetings when you walk in the door to the good byes at the end the experience is one of being spoiled and pampered. The food is innovative and oh so very tasty. This time we ordered the Chefs tasting menu. Everything was stunning, but the Sydney rock oysters and Bresaola and Polenta hot cakes was my personal stand outs!

Great food and fine wine, only suggestion would be to sit people at the tasting bar farther apart.

About Bennelong - Cured & Cultured

Enjoy the atmosphere of dining at the iconic Sydney Opera House in a more casual yet elegant format at Bennelong Cured and Cultured. Chose seating at the counter overlooking the chefs at work, or The Circle, a casual dining room on the upper level of Bennelong near the bar. Like its big sister, Cured and Cultured champions Australian produce, with the menu choices usually highlighting a single ingredient. Experience simple yet spectacular choices like red claw yabbies, Mooloolaba yellowfin tuna, and oxheart tomato salad, either as individual dishes or opt for the chef’s tasting menu. The menu is ideal for sharing over a glass of Australian wine with your partner or friends. Cured and Cultured is open for lunch Friday to Sunday, and dinner every day. Best dish: Suckling pig sausage roll
