    Great space between tables, most seats had views and food was small dishes (so not that filling a meal) but delicious. Champagne was up there in price so not able to relax on that front! Would recommend especially for pre theatre drink and snacks.

    We celebrated my best friend’s birthday here and it was a fabulous experience. The food, service and stunning view made it a night to remember. I would definitely recommend Bennelong restaurant.

    Service was impeccable. Food can be sought in many Australian restaurants. When booking on this website I was unaware that two styles existed. The Two hat restaurant and tapas. It's disappointing when you believe your attending a two hatter restaurant and receive Tapas, no matter the level of service you’re not likely to return. Maybe staff should inform customers, when I called to confirm. No mention of two styles of meals. First Class and economy. Overall, service amazing, cocktails amazing, food average. I can't recommend this restaurant.

    My fourth visit. Not many places where you can combine a casual setting with 5 star service and excellent food. And looking at the food being prepared in front of you is also something I really enjoy. There should be more venues with the kitchen lowered and in the middle so you can really look into it. Menus change of course but I did miss the eggplant dish which was my favourite on the menu. Will be back.

    We asked for seating at the bar but were ignored and seated at a table even though there were empty seats at the bar. The waiter who served us was friendly and attentive.

    The tasting menu is great. The food is prepared in front of you which is a show in itself. Service is friendly and professional. I always enjoy myself when I dine at Cured and Cultured.

    Smoothest service I’ve ever encountered anywhere. Food was excellent, views killer but the service is flawless. An amazing experience. Highly recommend ‘Cured and Cultured’ for those who wish to see the skills of expert chefs preparing your food. Amazing.

    First time to try the Cured & Cultured degustation. It was tapas style shared small plates. Absolutely great tasting food and the cocktails we ordered tasted great too. We were seated at the bar, got to see beautiful sunset view and it was interesting to see the chefs preparing the dishes in front of us. It's our go to restaurant to celebrate special occasions, will definitely be back :)

    As a quality Australian Restaurant we would suggest more Australian still and sparkling wines should be available by the glass. The welcome to guests is always warm, professional and leaving you feeling “you are special guests”.

    Always amazing food and service with spectacular views. Great pre-theatre venue for the Opera House. Especially love the yabbie pancakes.

    Service was outstanding, food and drinks were top quality as you would expect for the price you’re paying. Quite expensive but the views and the outstanding food and service are worth it.

    We had the chefs/degustation menu. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the timing was perfect for pre theatre but we were still hungry and ordered extra food which I don’t think you should need to do when the set menu is $75 per head.

    Very fancy restaurant with amazing views. Compared to similar tier restaurants the food quantity was minimal and it took a while in between dishes. actual taste / originality was solid two hat range in my opinion. Most important feedback would be to increase the quantity as even for two small Asians, myself and my partner felt like it was we had half a meal. Price was quite good for the location

    While the menu remains interesting and well curated, the service and overall experience at such an iconic restaurant have diminished; last time I would have wholeheartedly recommended the restaurant- less so this time.

About the restaurant

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
