    Worst seafood in Sydney. Looks and tastes like the seafood are frozen since the last Ice Age. Also very bad service. We were sitted in table in a hallway that is so remote wth no proper aircon and very far from buffet area. We will never ever go back and pay 89 dollars per head for the worst buffet experience we had

    We attended Cafe Opera for my daughter’s 16th Birthday last weekend for the Saturday Lunch Buffet. Other than an initial hiccup with the booking that was attended to professionally and efficiently prior to our arrival, we had a fabulous experience. The venue is stunning which makes for an enjoyable dining experience. The dining area is immaculate and set out creating enough space to make it an intimate experience, even during a very busy period. The food was fantastic. It was fresh with lots of variety. It was constantly bring replenished, so there was always something to put on your plate that was desired. The service was beyond wonderful. Anand, the Cafe Manager, was attentive and made sure we were comfortable, as was all the staff. I have to make a special mention of Raquel who was our table Server. She was the most friendly and professional Server that I’ve dealt with EVER. She couldn’t have been more attentive and made sure that we had everything we needed. She ensured our plates were cleared and our glasses full! She chatted with our family members and made us all feel comfortable. What an absolute gem, and a credit to herself and Cafe Opera. Thank you. We would love to come back again.

    We booked for Deluxe Seafood Buffet which was confirmed & included wine. On arrival we were informed that it was the Lunar buffet, more expensive & didn’t include wine. They honoured their original price & gave us a complimentary glass of wine. However, had we known we were not getting the buffet we had originally booked we would have cancelled. Nil communication so very disappointing.

    Not much food option and coz the theme is lunar new year but the Chinese food did not taste good. The buffet area is small and crowds of people. Seafood is fresh and sashimi only have salmon

    I organised Christmas dinner for my work Christmas celebration and was very very disappointed with quality of food but also very disappointed how little of selection of seafood dishes was. and generally not much of selection. Dinner definitely wasnt worth the money and it was my first buffett dinner visit in Cafe Opera and I dont think I will come back. But the same time need to mentioned that staff was Amazing Service was beautifull we were given lovely room but no Christmas decoration ,no Christmas spirit Kind Regards Renata

    Nice setting and we were very surprised at the lovely dessert that was brought out for my mum's birthday. Selection of food was ok and great fresh seafood.

    The welcome and service was excellent. The setting was rather cramped. Disappointment was in the fairly ordinary nature of the food … something you may expect on a Monday but not at a Saturday dinner. We could only consider it overpriced in the circumstances.

    Despite booking the restaurant early in the week, was seated on the outside corridor on arrival. Not many choices for Deluxe Seafood Buffet.

    Food variety was limited. Was seated outside and didn’t feel like part of the restaurant as floor was tiled whereas the area within the restaurant was carpeted. Service was not very attentive.

    10 stars! This is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a very long time. Service was outstanding the vibe was incredible and the food was out of this world! If I have any suggestions the only one would be to include a nice red onion vinaigrette for the oysters! Beautiful

    We sat in the balcony area, which was very pleasant. The atmosphere got a lot more hectic near the buffet, and queues developed at peak times near the seafood and the desserts because we were all being funnelled to finish within the two sitting times, so we all ate and queued for the same kind of good at the same time). The seafood was lovely, but the neT was tough and I could not eat it. Desserts a little over sweet. Service was great.
