    Try the tandoor salmon - pickled cucumbers, coriander and raita make it a fantastic main with lots of flavor

    Come early for your dinner reservation and have a few cocktails. Or just come for the cocktails. The food is awesome but it's not cheap.

    The view is great, especially if you book in advance. The food didn't leave as much of an impression, while the service felt quite officious.

    Have to admit - I wouldn't normally pick this type of place to eat - but damn they do an unreal steak. Also, take a special friend there and woo them with the views of the most famous vista in Sydney.

    Very impressive views of the harbor and coat hanger. Very pricey but worth it as the food is outstanding. I ordered the steak. So much good.

    Fantastic pork belly! Unfortunately understaffed when we went so the service wasn't great. My mum found a rubber band in her veggies and they only offered to replace her dish. No other compensation...

    Views are amazing. Salted caramel martini is AMAZING. Don't be suckered in the foie gras tortellini though, its not that great. Not a bad place to eat for a special night

    Scallops, crab cake with maybe the best prawn I've had in Sydney thus far, tenderloin for mains, and the lemon curd pannacotta as the coup de grace. Excellent restaurant.

    Cocktails good but you're only really here for the location. Food is average and poor value. Most of staff look depressed/angry. There are better views than this of Syd Habour (minus motorway too).

    Very good but small food. Vegan menu is nice but lame dessert offering. Surely they could have gotten more creative than fresh fruit & sorbet.

    9/10 experience. Great view, excellent food and wine (tappanappa tiers Chardonnay is the one we got, $200 approx. very good!!!) the only thing from it not being 10/10 was the service...!

    예약필수. 가격대는 좀 됌. 음식 종류는 다양하진 않지만 해산물 위주. 분위기와 경치는 좋음. 특히 반대로 앉은 이들을 위한 거울 아이디어 굳!
