    Very disappointed about the booking and service. I was under the impression that I booked a table and was told I booked the bar. After explaining the situation I was told that I had no choice other than to sit at the bar for the meal. Never coming back.

    Amazing architecture in the Opera House with the view on Circular Quay, and a refined cuisine with very professional staff. Last but not least, a good wine menu with only Australian products (except Champagne)

    This was a fantastic evening. Being time limited the service received was attentive and took into account my needs. I look forward to returning.

    We ordered the chef’s tasting menu. It took a while to get our drinks and first dish, but afterwards the different courses followed quickly. Very tasty and perfect as a pre-theatre menu

    Guests enjoyed oysters with lemon granita and zucchini salad with lemon jam, nuts and summer blossoms. Accompanied by a Pinot from the Yarra Valley. Service just delightful. We will return!

    The head chef remembered what I had last time I was there which was few months ago! That is impressive!

    My first time visiting Bennelong Cured and Cultured and it was a great experience. My friend and I had the tasting menu for lunch, food was delicious even though the portion was small but that's what I expected anyway. One of the staff who served us recommended a non-alcoholic cocktail drink called Floriade and it was quite special. The ambience was great and we got to sit at the bar table where we could watch their staff preparing for the dishes. I would recommend this place for a special occasion or pre theatre meal.

    We enjoyed our dining experience, although the open kitchen was extremely messy, and the waiters were friendly, but more appropriate for a pub than for such an iconic restaurant

    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”.

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
