Gourmet dining Sydney
Where to eat in Sydney
Almost anywhere is the answer. Acclaimed chefs, access to fresh, local produce and fine restaurants in beautiful locations combined with a laid-back lifestyle to give Sydney's food and wine culture a flavour all its own.
Sydney's gourmet dining scene has an exciting, fresh style that's characterised by the global outlook of its chefs, food producers and local diners. A few select Sydney restaurants have starred on the S.Pellegrino World's Best Restaurants list including Tetsuya's, Quay, Marque and Momofuku Seiobo while Sydney chefs making their mark around the world include David Thompson at Nahm in Bangkok and Tetsuya's Waku Ghin in Singapore.
If you love great food and wine, plus that special combination of excellent service and beautiful atmosphere, then Sydney offers many award-winning dining experiences. There are at least six restaurants in the don't-miss category: est., Marque, Momofuku Seiobo, Rockpool, Quay and Sepia have all won three chefs hats in the Sydney Morning Herald's Good Food Guide. Two-hatted restaurants include Aria, Gastro Park, Nomad, Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, Longrain, Ormeggio at The Spit, Pilu on Pittwater, Porteno, Spice Temple and Tetsuya's.
There are now more than 40 Sydney restaurants that have earned one hat, and they're sprinkled all over Sydney. A tavola, Billy Kwong, The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay, Cafe Sopra, China Doll, Flying Fish, glass brasserie, Sean's Panaroma, Ume and Xanthi are just a few.
Stefano Manfredi's Balla at The Star
Stefano Manfredi pays homage to his Milanese roots at his restaurant Balla, located in The Star (formerly Star City Casino) overlooking Sydney Harbour. His authentic Italian cuisine joins a hub of great restaurants, hotels and bars that are just a short walk from the city centre.
Listed as one of the S.Pellegrino World's Best Restaurants, Tetsuya's continues to attract food lovers seeking a dining experience like no other. An eleven-course degustation menu fuses the Japanese philosophy of using natural, seasonal flavours with classic French technique.
Quay has Peter Gilmore at the helm, a chef who delights in sourcing rare ingredients and uses produce grown on his organic farm in the Blue Mountains. According to the S.Pellegrino World's Best 50 Restaurants, Quay's style of food is nature-based with fragrant poached chicken top of the menu.
Marque, in Surry Hills, combines classical French cuisine with the best of Australian produce. Head chef Mark Best pushes conventional food boundaries in unexpected ways with innovative techniques from dehydration to jelly or flash-frozen. The result is robust flavour combinations and carefully composed presentations.
