    Scenic view and dinner with toasties - took the 8 course tasting menu with classic wine pairing. Remember vividly the tartar of wagyu beef and the snow egg, the snow egg was really exceptional, rich

    One of the Top 30 restaurants in the world, you get innovative (even jaw dropping) dishes and to die for views! Mud Crab Congee, Black lip Abalone & Wagyu excel. Don't leave w/o trying the Snow Egg!!

    We went there for lunch for the view of Opera House. There was a large group of ladies having lunch on that day so it was pretty noisy. The food was not bad but neither 'wow'. Read more

    Mud crab congee and snow egg is a must have. My companion loved the bone marrow broth. Menu can be gluten free or vegetarian. Service was wonderful, there was an accident and got complimentary cake.

    Two words: snow egg. But you won't get there until you order a four-course menu or the tasting menu (highly recommended). Impeccable service with awesome views of Sydney's icons. Reserve tables early!

    The mash potato is to die for - don't know how much actual potato is in it (more butter and cream, methinks), but I don’t really care!

    Under no circumstances are you to leave before you have sampled the sublime white nectarine snow egg -- a chilled, meringue-and-fruit blob of awesomeness -- or the "eight textured" chocolate cake.

    Leave some space for the dessert, they come in huge quantity. They ran out of most of the choices tonight, ended up with a nice sticky date pudding who could have fed 3 people.

    Overpriced, watery oysters, rocket leaves less than fresh. Will anyone care with thus view? Probably only locals. Prawns were good as was grilled barrumundi.

    If you want a casual meal without the pretence and need for booking a month in advance, then this is it. Good food, good service, reasonable price (not the wine) and good views.

    Make sure there is no ship at the overseas passenger terminal before asking for a table near the window. If unsure always ask for table with view of the bridge.

    The Sea Pearls were wicked. Consider asking to share a flight of the wines as well - the table next to us asked for this and managed to pay for one flight of wines but both diners got a glass each.

    Super expensive but worth every penny. This has arguably the best location in Sydney and the food is to die for! I'm already saving for round 2. Make sure you try the Chocolate 7 ways dessert!
