The Rocks Restaurants

Restaurants in the Rocks

Established as one of the earliest settlements in the colony of New South Wales, The Rocks has become a major tourist and entertainment district within Sydney. Dotted with cafes, trendy restaurants and historic pubs, The Rocks is a mix of local haunts with high traffic tourist areas, all set against the Sydney's famous harbour skyline.

There are a number of pubs and bars that pay homage to the early history of The Rocks. Refurbished warehouses and art deco buildings are coupled with modern service and cuisine, creating an 'old world' charm fitting for one of Sydney's oldest settlements. With many pubs and bars using locally brewed beers and having a focus on high quality food that can be shared amongst friends, The Rocks is a great spot to meet after work or enjoy a few cocktails with a view to start your weekend.

Classic bistro service and sumptuous brasseries are also on offer at The Rocks. Whether on the ground level or elevated above the city streets, you'll be certain to enjoy these dining gems. Casual dining is coupled with five-star food to provide a unique experience while visiting The Rocks – perfect for a quick bite before heading off to see a show or explore the city.

With its wide views of Sydney's harbour and a number of 'hatted' restaurants tucked into a small area, The Rocks is haven for fine dining. Whether you're looking for some of the freshest seafood in Sydney, or a luxurious (and at times experimental) dining experience, The Rocks has a Sydney restaurant for you. With cuisines varying from modern Australian, to elegant Asian inspired dishes and everything in between, the food will only be part of the enjoyment while dining at The Rocks.
