  • North of Sydney can sometimes be much neglected, and Milsons Point can offer a nice different perspective of Sydney Harbour. Easily accessible by public train, and of course, walk back on the bridge b...  more »

  • Amazing service, friendly staff. The food is excellent, great value for money. And they make birthday celebrations with them so much fun with a surprise cake! Definitely recommended for a fun evening!
  • Amazing view, pretty good food, I didn't pay so I'm not sure how pricey it was.
  • TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE I had a reservation at 8:30pm and on arrival was told to wait outside the restaurant (along with other waiting diners) while the tables were set up. Although normally I would have no issue with this slight delay due to late leaving diners, at this time it was raining. After lining up to be sat at a table I was told frantically by one waitstaff that my table was not ready. While waiting for what seemed to be numerous tables to be pulled and a table to be set up I noted a number of other two person tables already set up. I asked the waiter nearest to me (later found out to be Jerome) whether it was possible to be sat in on the already set up tables instead of waiting further. I was responded to in an extremely rude and obnoxious manner. Jerome was clearly flustered and responded angrily with ‘no’ without any explanation or checking of bookings. He then proceeded to respond with words to the effect of 'If you want another table I can give you that one' pointing to what can only be described as the worst table in your restaurant (next to the entrance wedged into a corner), not to mention it was also not set up. I had an inkling that the staff member was being discriminatory based on what happened later in the night so I made a formal complaint and as expected the manager provided limited explanation and blamed their 'system'. Rather than pursue thought best to simply write a review.
  • Went in a group. Friendly, good-natured service - and beef cheeks that fall apart in your mouth! The tiramisu dessert (special of the day) was regarded by all who chose it as the best they've ever had. Highly recommended.
  • Stopped by for a romantic meal for our wedding anniversary. Great food and ambiance. Really nice attentive staff and amazing views. Just a stones throw from the Milsons Point Wharf and adjacent to Luna Park you really have no excuse not to jump on a boat to escape the touristy hubbub of the likes of circular key and Darling Harbour for a bite to eat. It's only a 15 minute walk back over the harbour via the bridge!

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
