Bennelong Restaurant
Bennelong Restaurant
Modern Australian | Sydney CBD, Sydney / New South Wales

Bennelong serves to celebrate the Sydney Opera House and its extraordinary architecture by offering a culturally significant and inspiring menu showcasing a most magnificent production of Australian food and wine. We’ve made sure the dining experience at Bennelong is accessible and flexible. Our cooking is not overly technical and tricky – it’s robust and direct – allowing the pure flavours of the ingredients to sing. We’ve enjoyed developing a whimsical dessert menu based on traditional Australian sweets, and the wine list, similarly – is a reflection of the best of Australia – without taking itself too seriouslyMore

Firedoor
Firedoor
Modern Australian | Surry Hills, Sydney / New South Wales

At Firedoor we work intuitively with fire and the ingredients. The kitchen is entirely powered by wood and everything is cooked to order. We burn a variety of woods daily to create embers that will then be used to cook in a way that enhances the natural characteristics of the ingredients. Our kitchen is open-plan, allowing guests a clear view of the action which unfolds in the kitchen. It is important for us to invite diners into our world and show them how simple cooking can be, and how good ingredients can become great ingredients when grilled over a wood fire. Head Chef and owner, Lennox Hastie is fascinated by fire; his dedication and uncompromising approach has established Firedoor as an eating experience unlike anything else in town.More

Olio Kensington Street
Olio Kensington Street
Italian | Chippendale, Sydney / New South Wales

Sicilian-born, award-winning chef Lino Sauro (Gattopardo, Singapore) opened Olio Kensington Street in early 2017 to show Sydney why Sicilian is the new Italian.

Olio Kensington Street (Italian for olive oil) is located in the beautifully restored The Old Rum Store with a contemporary indoor dining room and lush rooftop terrace overlooking Chippendale.

Sauro comes from a long lineage of self-sufficient Sicilian farmers where he grew up with meals that were created with the quality produce grown on the property. This translates into Sauro’s menu with dishes that reflect a strong connection to his Sicilian roots and passion for fresh and sustainable produce.

Keeping it in the family, Sauro sources his olive oil – the base of all his dishes – from the family’s Sicilian farm.

Quay
Quay
Modern Australian | The Rocks, Sydney / New South Wales

Quay is one of the country’s most celebrated restaurants; the creation of leading Australian restaurant group, Fink Group, and Executive Chef Peter Gilmore.

Quay offers either a 6 course menu - $225pp. Or a 10 course menu- $285pp.

The reimagination of Quay has welcomed an organic space reflective of Peter Gilmore’s nature inspired cuisine. The interplay of textures and colour bring new life and a vibrance that embraces the restaurant’s place in the dress circle of Sydney Harbour. An ode to the Australian landscape, from the vast ocean floor, to the cracked bark of a paperbark tree, every detail from the ground up has been thoughtfully considered.

A new era for Quay, gives an opportunity to fulfil even greater aspirations in delivering a most personal and immersive dining experience.More
