Walsh Bay Food and wine
Eating and drinking in Walsh Bay
Art lovers and culture vultures may flock here for the theatres, but dip a toe in the thriving Walsh Bay food and wine scene and you'll find a delectable choice of fine dining, casual tapas, amazing Italian and several must-visit bars.
Walsh Bay can be found on the western side of the Harbour Bridge. To get there, all you have to do is wander around the harbour's edge from The Rocks. This cosmopolitan theatre precinct has a charm all of its own plus an excellent range of dining spots.
One of the most popular is Ventuno, an Italian restaurant where you can choose from a mouthwatering share plate or nibble on a pizza bigger than your head! An amazing wine list features drops from all over Europe, superb service and stunning harbour views. Fratelli Fresh's Cafe Sopra is nearby, perfect for theatre-goers and casual lunches.
For fine dining head to The Sebel Pier One's Front Restaurant & Bar; the lobby bar, complete with glass-bottomed floor, is ideal for a coffee or quiet drink. For contemporary Australian fare, Sydney Theatre's Hickson Road Bistro off the theatre foyer is also a pre-theatre dining favourite as is Wharf Restaurant@Pier 2, where the mouthwatering fare runs the gamut from grilled scallops with shaved fennel and lemon, to roast rack of lamb on spiced eggplant salad.
Winding down? Head to STC's Bar At The End of the Wharf for a Vodka Gimlet or, if you're game, a round of ping pong. That is, if you're not too distracted by the dazzling harbour and Luna Park views.
