Let's start with the view. It is on the top floor of the Overseas Passenger Cruise Terminal, located directly across the water from the Sydney Opera House. Lined with floor to ceiling windows, the harbor is your, uh, your oyster. During the day, nothing can beat watching the ferries pull in and out of Circular Quay, the sailboats in the harbor, and the ever-changing play of light and water on the white shell roof of the Opera House. The view is completely unobstructed.
The food was fabulous both times I went (once for lunch, once for dinner). My dad had the oysters served on ice with chardonnay vinegar granita...a unique and tasty presentation that left him salivating for more (he ordered them again on our second visit). I had the mud crab in tomato sorbet. Again, a dish that made me wonder who ever thought it up, but left me thanking its' creator with every delicious morsel!
At night, with the lights turned down and the Harbor Bridge and Opera House lit up, this is the best dining view of Sydney possible. Classy. Romantic. A place for celebration. Don't think another second - book your table now!
And for a preview of the view - go to the website www.quay.com. The quote on the homepage sums it up: "There are few restaurants in the world offering such fine cuisine in such a spectacular setting!"
PS - The US dollar is very strong against the Aussie dollar, making this a VERY affordable splurge. A three course meal and two bottles of wine for two was under $100 US.
