Delicious food, wonderful service and an overall lovely evening out. Well worth the cost. Come a little bit earlier to have a cocktail at the bar. It starts the evening off nicely.

The main attraction of the Altitude is its wonderful views. Unfortunately, we were already staying in a grand harbour view room at the Shangri-La Hotel so had already "got used" to the view. We were seated at a lovely table by the window at 20:45 with a great view of Sydney by night. It was very cold at this table... More

Had dinner here with my boyfriend for my birthday. The meal was delicious, service excellent and the harbour views were amazing. I had the cauliflower dish for my main - usually I am a meat eater however I decided to try something different. I was not disappointed! It tasted amazing. The portion sizes of the meals were just right and... More

We came here for our 4th Wedding anniversary and this restaurant is well worth a visit. The friendly staff that went out of their way to explain the menu, make suggestions on various meals, accommodated the numerous requests for pictures taken with the stunning backdrop of Sydney Harbour (Harbour Bridge & Opera House) and surprising us with a small anniversary...

We came here on Valentines Day and paid over $200 per person for a set menu. The service was terrible. I've had better service in a local bar. The food was bland, the portion size a joke. One of the worst meals we've had in a long time and we frequently dine in fine dining establishments so was expecting high... More

We went for our anniversary, expecting a fine dining experience with a great view. The view was indeed great, we took an early sitting at 6:15 (to which we were warned repeatedly on the website that it was a 2hr sitting only) but were seated at the window. The set menu was full of beautifully presented tiny meals on giant... More

I booked the table for my boyfriend's birthday and got not a nice table as I expected and the waitress seemed not keen to help.

One if not the best view I have ever had at a restaurant. That all that is good two star service and two star food. Service is slow and forgot simple request multiple times. Food came out cold but was OK otherwise. I would go for drinks at the bar next door for the view and dine someplace else.

Thank Bret S

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
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 weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
