Restaurant Review - Cafe Sydney

Submitted on Fri 06 Nov 2015

Overall - Our first ever 5/5


Chris - 4/5

“Except for the rain that spoiled our planned meal in the sun on the balcony, everything about Café Sydney was fantastic. The food was tasty, and the enormous amount of cocktails on the menu means theirs one for everyone. It’s a nice setting, in a great location with a good ambiance and definitely one I’d go back to”.

Café Sydney!

Is there a better restaurant which serves such good food with such an iconic view? No is the answer!

We headed down early Friday afternoon when the sun was still shinning and were seated on the balcony with a postcard worthy view.

Service was fast and prompt, they even had a spare table indoors waiting for us to jump onto when the heavens opened.

I had the Carpaccio of wagyu beef, truffle dressing, caper, aioli and baby rocket which was tasty bad choice on my behalf, I thought I’d try something new but I wasn’t impressed.

Suckling pork belly as a main was delicious, it was a little greasier then I’d have hoped but still delicious.

Salted caramel chocolate peanut tart with banana fritters and chocolate ice cream was awesome and the Expresso Martini is probably the best I’ve ever had.


Jen - 5/5

With beautiful views and equally stunning food, Café Sydney is definitely one of my favorite spots in Sydney.

I dined on the scallops, pork belly and an Eton mess like desert to finish and all 3 courses were very pleasing to the palate! As were the fabulous cocktails served by our friendly and attentive waiter.

I would highly recommend anyone looking for a restaurant for a special occasion or nice treat to pay Café Sydney a visit! 


James - 5/5

This was my 4th time at Café Sydney and by far the best, we had a lovely table for 10 outside and wasn’t spoilt by the rain as they already prepared for this and had another table inside ready for us.

Every course was great and the Vespa Martini cocktails and Barossa red wine completed an amazing meal / experience.

As always the staff were more than welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating


Carly - 5/5

As always, Café Sydney never disappoints. I shared the lamb special with Charlie which was amazing, as was the salted caramel slice. Cocktails in the bar afterwards were awesome too – thanks Simon! 


Simon - 5/5

I've been to Cafe Sydney many times. To be honest I didnt rate it as exceptional. But this visit was different, maybe they've upped their game, maybe it was the people I was with or maybe I just got them on a good day but this time the food was outstanding, the staff were amazing and the cocktails were beautiful and free flowing. We went over budget by about 200% but for some reason I just couldn't bring myself to care! It was brilliant


Charlie - 5/5 never lets you down.

Café Sydney is a favourite of lunch club goers. Well laid out with stunning views across Sydney Harbour. The wait staff are attentive whilst not overbearing. For me a real gem of restaurant that serves excellent portions of wholesome tasty food. Great wine list and the best chocolate brownie on the planet.
