Cafe Sydney is an iconic place with great views. I was celebrating the Persian New Year and my son's birthday. The The main course and desert was great however we were disappointed when we were asked to leave the table to inside before our desert was served. We only had a 2 course meal. Therefore the table timetable should have allowed for this.

Fantastic spot with unbeatable view of Sydney Harbour. The staff were perfect and couldn’t be more pleasant or attentive. They handled a special birthday reservation very tastefully. Food was beautiful. Great place to celebrate an occasion or have a romantic dinner.

We went for our 10th Anniversary. Fantastic food and service. We ordered dessert and when one of the waiters noticed they had forgotten to write happy anniversary on it, he organised another free plate of chocolate treats and wrote happy anniversary. Attention to detail is very good. Small things that really make the customers happy.

A truly wonderful experience! The consensus of our party of 5 was that all meals were excellent from the delicate goat's cheese souffle through to the variety of fish dishes. The chicken was superb. The desserts were works of art and every mouthful a delight. The service was superlative from every member of staff; efficient and friendly without being intrusive. A fabulous location with one of the best views of Sydney.

The food was great and the atmosphere is also great. the Waitress was however overbearing and almost scary, this was particularly noticable to the people in my party who would not have gone to an expensive place like this. It did not feel welcoming, it felt aggressive.

Lovely location and great menu and wine list. Our choices proved to be excellent and the service especially from Wee was first class. It was a bit noisy but with a full restaurant and good food and wine a bit of noise is expected.

The food was excellent, service was also very good, staff knowledgeable, friendly.
I don't know why large establishments charge for using a credit card when the local fruit shop or butcher doesn't need to.

We really enjoyed the food and the service. Loved rhe special balcony table. A very special lunch to celebrate birthdays foe hubby and my daughter. The only disappointing thing was when a staff member came over with the bill and the card machine and asked "are you done?". We just cringed paid and left. The only disappointing part of our visit.

I had an unexpected day off & was looking for an easy lunch place & and tried Cafe Sydney. Turned out to be a great choice, quick efficient friendly service, food was great, view was good, can’t wait to get back there. Would be a good place to entertain out of town guests.

I was in a table of 7 and for a Birthday.
The birthday gents even got a custom message on their plate with a candle which was unplanned but well executed.

The waiters were extremely polite and lovely. I required vegan and the waiter made sure that was the only thing I was ordering.
The atmosphere was lovely, we dined outside.

The food was amazing! Fine and delicious.
Well presented too.
If you do go there, make sure you stay for dessert! 7 of us had the desserts and all were a hit!
