We have been to the ECQ Bar on several trips to Sydney and never disappointed. Sometimes just for drinks and a visit and sometimes for dinner. This trip we had drinks and some share plates together with our daughter. I don't think they take bookings....More

I have been here many times, the views are lovely . BUT Staff are rude, very unhelpful, we were disappointed with the food and lack of attention given to our concerns.

We've been here a number of times. What gets us back each time is the view of the harbour, the quay and the bridge from the (comfortable) chairs in the bar. The bar is well stocked, but pretty standard, as are the prices. The location...More

The view is great, the position is great, the food is good but the menu is fairly limited, however, some of the staff regardless of being busy, can be rude which spoils the visit

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
