Sydney Restaurants

The hallmark of Sydney dining is choice. From the city centre to the neighbourhoods of the city’s east, west, north and south, there’s not much you can’t find and there’s absolutely something to suit all budgets, from 5 star deconstructed wonders by the harbour, to a cheap and cheerful pork roll or bowl of pho in Marrickville or Cabramatta. The phrase ‘something for everyone’ may sound cliched, but sometimes cliches exist for a reason, and when it comes to Sydney’s food scene, it really does apply.

Sydney’s restaurant scene is characterised by the city’s multicultural background, has a focus on fresh local produce, and is strongly trend-driven. Cafe culture is thriving here. There’s a real boom in specialty coffee, and some incredible brunch and lunch options on offer; Saturday brunch is a Sydney tradition, and all day breakfast is available at many venues. Most restaurants open for lunch from noon until 3.00pm, and dinner is generally between 5.00pm and 10.00pm. For late night eats, your best bet is to head to Dixon Street in Chinatown for after-hours Chinese food. Upmarket and critically-acclaimed eateries can be found all over this sprawling city, but especially in Circular Quay, Pyrmont, Potts Point and Surry Hills.
