The Dining Room at Park Hyatt Sydney

The Dining Room at Park Hyatt Sydney

When a friend from Melbourne is in town for work during Vivid, there is really only one choice for dinner; The Dining Room at Park Hyatt Sydney. As you can see from the photo, the view from this restaurant are magnificent. Unlike a lot of Sydney restaurants with a...
Captain Cook Long Lunch Cruise

Captain Cook Long Lunch Cruise

Last weekend, I enjoyed a Captain Cook Long Lunch Cruise for my partner’s mum’s birthday. My partner and I joined the cruise at 12pm at King St Wharf, and the rest of our party joined us at Circular Quay ay 12.30pm. 3.5 hours later, we disembarked at...
O Bar & Dining

O Bar & Dining

When my cousin said she was coming up to Sydney, from Melbourne, for the weekend, I racked my brains on where we should dine last Friday night. I wanted somewhere with a view, but also great food and service. As I have mentioned before, a lot of restaurants with a...
Aqua Dining

Aqua Dining

A couple of days ago, my boyfriend and I were taking out friends from the UK who were only in Sydney for a few days. We wanted somewhere with a view of course, as one does with overseas guests, and eventually decided on Aqua Dining. I had been here before, but not for...
Intercontinental Sydney Supperclub

Intercontinental Sydney Supperclub

Once upon a time you had to go to Melbourne if you wanted a decent rooftop bar. Not anymore. And I can safely say there is not a rooftop bar in Melbourne with views like this. Or anywhere in the world for that matter. Until about a year ago, if you wanted to visit...
The Palisades Hotel: Henry Deane Rooftop Bar

The Palisades Hotel: Henry Deane Rooftop Bar

It’s all about the views here. The roof terrace at The Palisades Hotel is great, but I think they rest on their laurels a bit, thanks to the stunning 270-degree views of the Harbour Bridge, city and Barangaroo. I have been twice since it opened a few weeks ago,...
Bennelong Restaurant: Cured & Cultured

Bennelong Restaurant: Cured & Cultured

A week last Sunday, a good friend from Melbourne told me that she would be in Sydney for a couple of days and was I free for dinner on Tuesday night. That gave me just 48 hours to find somewhere fabulous. I like to take overseas and interstate guests somewhere with a...
Matilda the Musical and dinner at The Star

Matilda the Musical and dinner at The Star

Last night, I finally saw Matilda the Musical at The Star. I have been wanting to watch it since I read the reviews of it on London’s West End! To be honest, I could hardly remember the story beforehand…I had read Roald Dahl’s book as a child, but...
The Theatre Bar at the End of The Wharf

The Theatre Bar at the End of The Wharf

Last Tuesday, I went to see the hilarious Wharf Revue at Sydney Theatre Company. We ummed and aaahed about where to go for dinner beforehand. We thought about the revamped Pallisades Hotel, the newly named View by Sydney (was Dedes on the Wharf) and old faithful Cafe...
Naked in the Sky

Naked in the Sky

I dined at Naked in the Sky with a few Melbourne friends on a Saturday night in November 2013.  Naked (both this roof terrace and the more casual Bar de Pinxtos downstairs) are part of the Melbourne trend to not take bookings. This is quite frustrating for those of us...
Kirribilli Club

Kirribilli Club

Whilst this venue is not as posh as it might sound, the views make up for that! It was dark when I went for friends for dinner and my phone camera at the time was not much good, so you just need to check the views out for yourself. It is a little bit like an RSL...
Balla

Balla

This swordfish looks amazing. Unfortunately though, both my partner & I ended up ill after eating here and we think it was the swordfish. Such a shame as it looked great and tasted fine. Other than that, Balla‘s pre-theatre menu is a good deal, the service and...
Flying Fish

Flying Fish

The oysters were amazing! As was everything we tried. The views, even in the evening, are stunning, though Vivid Sydney was on at the time, so seeing the Bridge all lit up help. Can’t wait to go back!!! In sum, go here for great seafood and great...
Harbour View Hotel

Harbour View Hotel

I celebrated my 40th birthday here last night and had a great time with family and friends. Amazingly, despite its central location, there was no room hire fee or even a minimum spend for the Balcony Area. Even better, despite booking the part of the balcony for about...
