Our guide to dining out in Sydney

Dine at one of Sydney’s top-rated restaurants – best to book your table in advance. Sample Australian wines at delightful bars. Enjoy lunch in a pub beside Sydney Harbour. Picnic in the Royal Botanic Garden, next to the Sydney Opera House, or on the beach at Bondi or Manly.

Visit one of the NSW wine regions; sample wines at the cellar door and eat locally grown fresh produce. Enjoy top restaurants in winegrowing areas such as the Hunter Valley, Orange, Mudgee and the Southern Highlands. You’ll also find award-winning restaurants on the South Coast, Central Coast and North Coast.

The city offers many eating options, from casual and affordable cafés and pubs, to award-winning restaurants on Sydney Harbour. Seafood is caught daily in the clean waters of the Pacific Ocean.

With a temperate climate and lots of sunshine, eating outdoors is popular year round. There are many cafés and restaurants in Sydney with outside dining, pubs with enticing courtyards, and rooftop bars with harbour and city skyline views.

Some of the best “eat streets” are to be found in Sydney’s vibrant inner city neighbourhoods, such as Potts Point, Chippendale, Surry Hills and Newtown, where there are numerous exciting cafés and restaurants offering creative menus.

The temperate climate is ideal for outdoor dining all year. Popular waterside dining locations include the heritage Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo and Darling Harbour, home to the Sydney SEA LIFE Aquarium. A delicious way to experience sparkling Sydney Harbour is on lunch or dinner cruises.
