Dining in Sydney is an enjoyable persuit with every type of cuisine imaginable beckoning for your approval. While dining is not the main focus of our site we carefully select a variety of restaurants in the the areas you are likely to be exploring during your Sydney vacation. These are 'safe-bets' to get you off to a good start with exploring all the fine cuisine that Sydney has to offer.
We have focused on the Central Business District and nearby areas including The Rocks, Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Haymarket area as well as Bondi Beach and Manly since those are where the majority of attractions and tourist activity are located. Click on the desired district below for listings of our recommended restaurants in that district, along with what they are known for and the closest public transit station. In keeping with our focus on value, we base our recommendations on restaurants and cafes that have a consistent track record of providing great overall value within their category. We focus on restaurants that serve consistently great food, but are also easy on the wallet, however, we include some more expensive upscale restaurants providing they offer good value within their category. Our other criteria is a reasonable walking distance from at least one Sydney Trains Station, Light Rail Station or Ferry Wharf (No more that 10 minutes) or close proximity to a popular attraction.
