The restaurant is very large but it was empty which did not help the atmosphere. But service and food were excellent. Great menu, we had tapas and sharing platters and our waiter Antonio was a delight.

About Cafe Del Mar

Sunset in style There’s nothing like kicking back on lush sofas, on a killer sun deck, while sipping on a few cocktails with friends. Pair this with tunes which vary from cool jazz, sexy deep house, nu sou and classic Café del Mar Balearic chill-out tunes, and you’re set for a seriously good night out. This stylish but relaxed setting, perched up high overlooking Darling Harbour also has a contemporary dining room with food geared mainly around Mediterranean flavours. Head Chef, Rory Donnelly's menu adds a touch of Aussie flair to elements from the Mediterranean Basin, Spain, France, Italy and North Africa. Stop by for a corporate or light shared lunch, delicious accompaniments for sunset cocktails, dinner with friends or a late night snack from the bar menu. One thing’s for sure, the sun always sets in style at Café del Mar. Best dishes: Torched blue mackerel, confit spanner crab salsa, paprika allioli & Bisteeya of wood pigeon, saffron semillion, rosewater, pistachio
