When my Dad came to visit in celebration of my birthday, he took me to dinner at Cafe Sydney, located on the rooftop of Customs House in Circular Quay, Sydney. The restaurant, which also has an outdoor terrace, houses a stunning view of the harbour.
We were lucky enough to be seated at a table right by the window which let for a beautiful evening view of the harbour, lit up by lights. The atmosphere was relaxed, complimented with dimmed lighting and contemporary décor. Our waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable on the menu and fresh produce.
Having ordered only mains, I enjoyed the Cone Bay Barramundi with a fetta cigar, farro, smoked eggplant, baby zucchini and harissa. The dish was beautifully presented and packed full of flavour. My Dad raved on about his Peppered Beef Tenderloin which was accompanied by swiss brown mushrooms, onion rings, porcini cream and jus. Being British and a fellow foodie, he was pleasantly surprised at how delicious the dish was without potatoes.
For those who have a special occasion in the near future, I wouldn’t pass on the opportunity to experience dining at Cafe Sydney.
