Cafe Sydney







Today was Paul’s birthday so we spoiled the boy and took him out for a special lunch.  We took the ferry across to Circular Quay and headed to the old Customs House.  Through the sparkling glass foyer and a lift ride up to the roof top Cafe Sydney.

We had cocktails in the bar before being shown to a table outside on the terrace with magnificent harbour views.

The restaurant was huge and buzzing with glamorous and glossy people.  The food and company were great and we had a very jolly time. I had feta and asparagus tart followed by barramundi (sea bass); there was a separate menu for the vegan half of our party.

We got home about an hour ago.  The bearded one went out and returned with a large box of chips which we have smothered with ketchup and all dived into. The portions for our exquisite nouvelle cuisine were a bit on the small side.

  1. .Sounds nice but I hate it when you pay big money and end up hungry. Happy Birthday Paul. It looked like a nice day out anyway.

    1. The food was delicious but a little light on portion size.

  2. Happy Birthday, Paul - looking at the view from the restaurant, I'm sure it's a day you will remember for a long time.

  3. What a fabulous view (other than the cruise ship). I agree with Helsie, feeling hungry after an expensive meal is not good. A bowl of chips with red sauce would be perfect.

    1. There's usually at least one cruise ship in the harbour, a different one each day.

    1. I don't think he's typical of his sign, apart from the travelling bit.
