Time Out Sydney

These are some of the best views in the city. The huge balcony juts straight over Circular Quay with a bird's-eye view of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Sydney ferries choofing their way across the sparkling blue water. Stunning by day or night, it's one of the best views in town and all the better for being in the open air. If you're in full impress-your-mates mode, order a seafood platter with a selection of yabbies, bugs, crab, marron and prawns. Visit on a Sunday for live jazz and cocktails. Reservations are essential for lunch or dinner and if you're after an outdoor seat, it's best to mention it when you're booking. And you don't have to dine to enjoy the view - it's also a bar.
