Bennelong was spectacular. There is something special about eating at one of Australia’s most iconic venues (opera house), plus the views are great as you look out over the harbour. Then you add a great wine and drinks list, amazing food and great service. This is a great place for a business meeting or special occasion. Will be back!

Been to Bennelong a few times, and keep going back. Simply the best restaurant in Sydney.

The service is impressive. The dessert of different textures of raspberries was my favourite. They even catered for our baby with the provision of a high chair and allowing us to have our pram at the table.

Excellent experience, highly rated and would recommend great bar for a pre dinner drink of you have a booking, great views in the restaurant itself. My crab and polenta entree was excellent, pork main was good and the cherry jam lamination was outstanding. Great service, very attentive. Also excellent wine list.

About Bennelong Restaurant

At the base of the Sydney Opera House, Bennelong delivers produce-driven cuisine, showcasing the best Australia offers. Nestled within the Sydney Opera House on the harbour foreshore, it’s the ideal location for pre- and post-theatre dining, as well as an exceptional meal for life’s most important celebrations. Executive Chef Peter Gilmore and his team work closely in partnership with a network of farmers, breeders, fishermen and providores to harness the best of what’s in season, as well as develop ingredients especially for Bennelong’s menu. The menu is designed to let the key elements shine, with integrity and purity, rather than just technical mastery. Enjoy the two or three course a la carte menu featuring choices like seared tartare of wagyu, wild Cape York barramundi, and cherry jam lamington. Accompany your food with exceptional Australian wines for a meal you won’t forget. Best dish: Macleay Valley suckling pig
