The food was fabulous, some of it was just slightly salty. Service was impeccable, views were great, as was the atmosphere. It is fine dining, so the 10 course meal at $275 should not come as a shock. Is it worth it? You only live once, go for it, the food is very fresh and plays on your senses. Brilliant stuff.

This was a special occasion for my best friend. We had anticipated eagerly to the New Quay as we have had lovely dining experiences there prior to the renovation and menu reinvention. Unfortunately, we felt it was a bit of a let down on a few points. 1) We were seated upstairs which gave us a wonderful view but the tables were placed far too close to each other and instead of feeling the ambience of a fine dining restaurant, we felt like we were seated at a busy chattering bistro which is fine if that was where we had intended to be. 2) The food was well presented and the pork jowl was the stand out. The Coral was simple and elegant but the flavor lacked the WOW factor of the Snow Egg 3) The wait staff needs a bit of polishing if they want to keep up with the 3 Hatted standard. They were friendly and courteous but our pre-dinner cocktails order was missed and instead the wine to accompany our meal came first. The wait staff asked if we still wanted the cocktails but we decided to give them a miss. However, we were later presented with complimentary cocktails on the house which was a great gesture and we appreciate this. Thumbs up to the wait staff who had arranged this. Overall, the experience was pleasant but unremarkable.

We celebrated our anniversary along with a couple of friends. The last time we ate at Quay (approx 4 years ago) we were a little underwhelmed. However, this time we were hugely impressed - the food was incredible and the service was appropriately attentive.

About QUAY

This Rocks institution won Gourmet Traveller’s Restaurant of the Year for 2019. It has consistently held three Good Food Guide hats for seventeen years. Is it necessary to continue? Ok, easy. At the helm is highly celebrated chef, Peter Gilmore, who is known not simply for his culinary masterpieces but also his dedication to growing his own, fresh produce. After a recent renovation, Quay is redesigning the fine dining experience. They have swapped the white tablecloths for more natural elements, including timber tables made from spotted gum, a timber ceiling and volcanic lava stone detailing. They now offer a six course degustation meal for dinner midweek and lunch Friday to Sunday. As well as a 10-course meal on Friday and Saturday night. If you were hoping to try the famous ‘Snow Egg’, you’ll have to settle for the new dessert “White coral”. It features a light white chocolate ganache aerated under vacuum and then frozen with liquid nitrogen. Quay should be top of your Sydney list for that most special of special occasions.
