An amazing dining experience. We lunched on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed the 6 course experience. Well worth it. We're also watched a huge cruise ship depart... revealing the amazing view. Great service highly recommend.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
