The best seats are inside by the window. The fish n chips were good

Extremely disapointed. The menu in the restaurant was very different to the one on this website, no deserts, only 4 mains to choose from. One of those was not available but they only told us after we ordered, so we had to change. They did a mistake in our drinks order. When I asked why they changed the menu they were unable to tell me anything else than "manager's decision". Bistro food, not at all the fine dining that would fit the nice view of Sydney harbour. Same type of food as you can find in the food court.

Rather disappointing menu with such amazing views the experience & expectations of the food did not impress - pasta should be homemade not out of a packet !!! Rather oily & unpleasant to eat - would not recommend for food just the views

Staff wiped tables clean by dropping food onto floor Insufficient staff, appeared not well organised but were friendly the overall experience I would not return, the take away would have been a better value

The service was great and we had a lovely table, positioned for the view and alfresco which I asked for when booking. The food was fresh but a bit simple although good value except for the beef burger which was a bit overpriced.

Gorgeous views, excellent service, a more varied menu would be appreciated but the food was nice nonetheless.

My husband got the beef burger and chips. For the $26 it cost it was absolutely terrible,he had to leave half of it behind. Also had to ask for the toppings it was supposed to come with. Very disappointed as it was booked for a birthday lunch. The best thing about our meal was the bottled beer which couldn’t go wrong.
