There aren’t many places around Woolloomooloo Wharf where you can lunch for under $20 with your own bottle of wine. Lunchtimes see it packed with local office workers after the $15 lunch special...www.bestrestaurants.com.au/restaurants/NSW-Sydney-siennamarina.aspx
Potts Point and Woolloomooloo Food and wine
Sunny day? There's nothing nicer than doing a few leisurely laps and finishing with lunch at the Andrew Boy Charlton's Poolside Café, perched over the harbour in the Royal Botanic Gardens. It's an easy 10-minute walk from Woolloomooloo.
Bars, restaurants and nightlife
Potts Point's cool cafes, groovy bars, trendy eateries and soaring art deco buildings can make you feel, at times, like you've stumbled on a little pocket of Paris or New York. Woolloomooloo Wharf is good for star-spotting as well as fine dining and harbourside luxury.
The bottom line? Potts Point is a magnet for lovers of good food and wine. At the Darlinghurst end, Bootleg Bar is a cheeky little establishment kitted out with fat hanging bulbs, retro boom-boxes and a vintage filing cabinet for a cutlery drawer. Café DOV, a local favourite further down, is a good choice any time of day. Fancy fine dining? Try French bistro-wine bar Tastevin, Jimmy Liks or Mezzaluna, which boasts delicious Italian and stunning harbour views.
On Orwell Street off Victoria, you'll find art deco watering hole, The Roosevelt, which has a portable drinks trolley complete with a little liquid nitrogen. It gets crazier: the mixologists here serve the whiskey and port cocktail Mr Sin, in a glass gun. Next? Head onto Macleay Street and into tiny champagne and wine bar Velluto; its great cocktails and champagne list is a knockout.
Heading down to the wharf, you can't miss Harry's Cafe de Wheels, Sydney's iconic pie cart has been sorting out hungry late night revellers including visiting celebrities since 1945. You'll also find budget and fine dining options at The Tilbury on Nicholson Street and at the Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel opposite Woolloomooloo Wharf.
Whether you've got an appetite for pasta at Otto Ristorante, duck pancakes at China Doll, or a long lunch or dinner with friends, the historic wharf's harbour views and great eateries make for a magical food and wine experience.
