We loved our time at Quay! We were seated at a table overlooking Sydney Harbor (and the Opera House when the cruise ship left port a little past our arrival), which couldn't have been lovelier. The food on the Tasting Menu was of the highest...More

We were able to book a table on the day which was pretty unusual I understand. The food lived up to all the reviews we had read. Absolutely amazing, some of the best food I have eaten. We took the 4 course menu. Between us...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
