The Rocks

Sitting between the Sydney Harbour and CBD, The Rocks has some of the best views in the city.

Probably the most historically significant area in Sydney city, this is a place where you can find everything from street food to fine dining if you know where to look.

Food that rocks

The home of Sydney’s oldest building and two of its oldest pubs, The Rocks has a reputation for blending history with contemporary.

Primarily a tourist area, these quirky blocks are full of galleries, museums, and boutique shops. They also have a lot of places to eat that are, quite frankly, charging tourist prices. But we can help you distinguish which places are worth your time and money, as well as showing you some treasures tucked away in the heart of The Rocks.

The busiest areas of The Rocks are the waterfront, George and Harrington streets running parallel to the water, and Argyle Street which runs up the hill from the water. 

Around Sydney’s Circular Quay are a number of bars and restaurants with amazing views of the harbour that specialise in mouth-watering seafood and Japanese cuisine.

George and Harrington streets feature picturesque little strips of restaurants, bars, hotels, shops and galleries. Some of buildings date back hundreds of years - some of them just decades - but every square inch of this area is full of history. 

Wander between the alleyways and around hidden corners and you will find some out of sight places that are far from the hustle and bustle of the city streets. These places range from small cafés where you can get a drink and a quick sandwich, little bistros with gourmet burgers, pasta and pizza, to historic hotels with full kitchens serving everything from a full pub lunch to a first class meal.

Argyle Street is home to the Iconic Argyle Tavern. Made up of a cobblestone courtyard, heavy timber beams, and magnificent sandstone walls that have stood there for 150 years, this is one of the most majestic buildings in The Rocks, and it houses five bars and restaurants which serve bar snacks, light meals, and full sit-down meals with fusion highlights like pan-fried wagyu beef meatballs.

Because there is such a wide range of restaurants in Sydney city, The Rocks is often overlooked. It is definitely a great place to explore though, and if you feel like branching out more there are hundreds of Sydney restaurants to explore, just around the corner.
