Aria – Sydney

 

The last time I went to Aria was many years ago after reading the restaurant had a huge make over I decided to go check it out.  The renovated restaurant space looks fresh but not too different to the original, of course the amazing harbor views remain the same.

For the weekend lunch & dinner the  menu is 2 course $115 , three $145 & four $170 this includes salad and mash potatoes with so many appealing things on the menu I opted to go for the four courses.

The food is a little different to what you might expect from a restaurant of this caliber. No fancy gastronomic creations just simple dishes executed perfectly.  I really enjoyed the meal I had here. If you have not tried out the new Aira I would definitely recommend it.

Quay Restaurant – The Rocks Sydney

 

Quay is no doubt one of Sydney’s best restaurants with exceptional food, service & amazing views. Delivering everything you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber and more.

The standout savory dish for me was the mud crab congee sounds boring but packs so much flavor nothing like any other congee I have had before.  Desserts is all about the Snow Egg. It is really worthy of all the hype. I want to go back to Quay just to have another one!

The 4-course meal I had here was $175 they also have a tasting menu for $235. On the day I dined here there was a cruise ship docked so it was blocking the view towards the Opera House, there was still views of the Harbour Bridge. If you want the full view experience best to check if a boat will be in on the day of your booking.

Berowra Waters Inn

 

Berowra Waters Inn is only accessible by boat or seaplane. When you make a reservation you are given a choice of two different wharfs where a boat will meet you and take you on a five or so minute trip out to the restaurant.  Its not that far from the wharf but it really does feel like you are miles from anywhere. The place its self is an old style stone building that has been modernised with floor to ceiling glass, every table in the place has a great view.

The menu does not describe the dishes it only states a few of the ingredients and that’s it , this leaves it all up to the imagination of what the dish will be. The presentation of all the dishes was amazing like little works of art on a plate. Each dish really did taste as good as it looked.

Dining at Berowra Waters Inn is a great experience, I highly recommend it.
