Sydney is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. The cultural diversity is reflected in the cuisine choices.

With a temperate climate and lots of sunshine, eating outdoors in Sydney is popular throughout the year. There are many cafes and restaurants in Sydney with outdoor dining areas, as well as charming heritage pubs with enticing garden courtyards and rooftop bars with mesmerising harbour views.
Some of the best ‘eat streets’ are in vibrant inner-city neighbourhoods, such as Potts Point, Chippendale, Surry Hills and Newtown, and in Western Sydney at Parramatta and Cabramatta. Your tastebuds will be tempted by a fine selection of buzzy cafes, neighbourhood favourites and hip bars.

Brunch is popular in Sydney, especially on laid-back weekends. There are delightful cafes in leafy streets and by gorgeous beaches where surfers ride the rolling waves all year. With sparkling waterways and beautiful beaches, Sydney offers plenty of delectable waterfront dining options.
Along the edge of the UNESCO-World Heritage-listed Sydney Opera House is the Opera Kitchen, which offers delectable waterfront dining with views of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. For that special occasion, you can take a seaplane from Rose Bay to an acclaimed waterfront restaurant.
