About Food and Wine in Sydney

Savour authentic flavours from around the world in Sydney, a great dining destination. Treat yourself to delectable experiences, from dining by one of the most beautiful natural harbours to scrumptious seasonal produce, freshly caught seafood, elegant wine bars, hip cocktail bars and heritage pubs.

You’ll be delighted with the mouth-watering choices. Enjoy gourmet dining in acclaimed restaurants such as Bennelong, which is inside a majestic white sail of the iconic Sydney Opera House. Discover rising chefs’ innovative cuisine in the hottest dining precincts, such as Chippendale and Barangaroo.

The temperate climate is ideal for outdoor dining all year. Popular waterside dining locations include the heritage Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo and Darling Harbour, home to the Sydney SEA LIFE Aquarium. A delicious way to experience sparkling Sydney Harbour is on lunch or dinner cruises.

You’ll find many affordable cafes and restaurants in Sydney, which celebrates its multiculturalism through its diverse cuisines. Some of the ‘eat streets’ are Dixon Street in Chinatown, King Street in Newtown, Church Street in Parramatta, and the streets around Freedom Plaza in Cabramatta.

Stylish bars, whizz mixologists and heritage brewers are drawcards, with some bars offering spectacular views of iconic Sydney attractions. Blu Bar on 36 is perched on the Shangri-La Hotel’s 36th floor in the historic Rocks, where Australia’s oldest pubs serve hearty meals and fine ales.

Food and wine tours are popular, too. Australia’s oldest wine region is two hours’ drive north of the city. For fresh produce, browse the colourful farmers markets in Sydney neighbourhoods. You can also take the light rail to the Sydney Fish Market, one of the biggest seafood markets in the world.
