Dining & night life in Sydney

There’s no place in the world like Sydney for dining out

Sydney offers fans of good food and wine an unforgettable experience. With world-famous chefs, cutting edge creativity, stunning views and delicious fresh cuisine, Sydney really is a haven for food lovers and is one of the world’s favourite food capitals.  Sydney’s food scene is dominated by an abundance of local, fresh produce, teamed with a breed of young and dynamic chefs who break all the rules, but continue to deliver a truly exciting range of dining experiences.

The city boasts a banquet of world-class restaurants fronted by star chefs, and an array of markets, provedores and delis. Diners flock to the harbourside for a table by the water and dining under the stars is the perfect way to experience those postcard views. There’s no place like Sydney for picnics, too – with open spaces everywhere, it’s impossible to resist creating your own al fresco feast. And when it comes to bars, this is the city that parties like no other.

There is a treasure trove of cafes, restaurants and bars that offer the ultimate sea view and beachside favourites include Nick’s Bondi Beach Pavilion, Icebergs Restaurant and Bar, Sean’s Panorama, Will and Toby’s Manly Beach and The Bathers’ Pavilion restaurant and Café and Jonah’s at Sydney’s Whale Beach. Swell at Bronte took first billing among Sydney’s Top Five Seafood Restaurants published in New York Magazine in April 2006. www.nicks-seafood.com.au; www.jonahs.com.au; www.seanspanorama.com.au; www.willandtobys.com.au; www.thebatherspavilion.com.au 

Bilson’s, Claude’s, est., Guillaume at Bennelong, Marque, Pier, Quay and Tetsuya’s have been voted the best in Sydney (recognised with three hats) in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide for 2007. Meanwhile, Becasse was named Restaurant of the Year. www.bilsons.com.au; www.claudes.org; www.guillaumeatbennelong.com.au; www.marquerestaurant.com.au; www.quay.com.au; www.pierrestaurant.com.au; www.tetsuyas.com   

Sydney’s new wave of wine bars offer the perfect opportunity to taste test some of Australia’s best wines. These cool bars even manage to offer an educational approach to wine drinking. Try Aperitif, Kellett Street, Kings Cross; Bambini Wine Room & Bar, Elizabeth Street, City; or Vini, Devonshire Street, Surry Hills.

It’s also worth a trip to neighbourhoods close to the city centre where the flavours of Italy, Greece, Portugal, Vietnam and others are everywhere. From the humblest gelato stand to some of the world’s most innovative fine dining, Sydney restaurants offer both stunning locations and excellent food as the rule rather than the exception.

There’s no place in the world like Sydney.
