We came for an evening meal here. We were seated promptly and given our preference of table overlooking the quay. Our drinks came quickly and we were given bread rolls while waiting for our food. The food came very quickly and the portions were enormous. I had the Calamari Fritti which was lovely. Both our meals came piping hot. The... More

The waitress who served us was so rude and terrible. She yelled at me when I asked for skim milk. The vegetarian pizza was pretty mediocre. We paid around 35 bucks. If you want to sit near the water and think its worth paying that money, it would be ok. But I will never go there again coz I Just... More

We went to Rossini's for lunch and had Rossini Eggplant (rollup) and lasagne. Both were good but pretty much average. Service was a bit inattentive. Quite acceptable but nothing special foodwise.

We love the waterfront, so stopped here, always crowded, thinking it would be a good place for a nice meal and ship-watching. Wrong. The food was awful. I ordered a Margherita pizza - tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil. Simple. Nope. What I got looked and tasted like an overdone cheese pizza - no tomatoes, no fresh mozz, no basil. I... More

Visited this place for lunch had the Smoked Salmon salad. Great food the service was a little slow. Location is excellent for viewing the cruise ships at the international terminal. The cost is excessive I paid $32 for my salad and the other person paid $33 for a chicken Caesar salad.

Had our lunch here with my family. We ordered New York style rump steak (350g). We had a bread entree, i am not certain if it was part of the meal or not. But we have eaten the bread which tastes good. The exciting part was when the steaks were served. I always have mine as medium well while my... More

We had lunch here and we ordered different pasta dishes. All were very nice, good size portions and tasty. The only problem was the lasagna wasn't heated through, but everything else was very nice. Good service.too. A bit pricey but it is in a tourist precinct.

We had breakfast here. The coffee was weak. Hollandaise sauce with the eggs benedict tasted too eggy. The food was not of the quality we were expecting of an Italian café in the heart of Circular Quay.

Thank Lucy D

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
