Circular Quay




Gourmet1, Establishment/252 George Street, Sydney

Me and my wife came here for lunch with a couple of friends and we were extremely impressed in EVERY aspect. The staff was not only friendly and professional, they were also genuinely passionate about their food, which was believeable and very contagious. We were impressed by their positive attitude and level of culinary knowledge. The setting and atmosphere was nothing less than what you'd expect from a fine dining restaurant either. The food was absolutely stunning! This is fine dining at its best. Every dish was delicate and unique with multiple elements that worked in harmony. We ordered mostly seafood dishes - Moreton Bay bugs, grilled scallops with bone marrow, crab meat salad, coral trout, cod fillet etc., literally all of them were top notch. Texture, flavour, aroma, construction and presentation... everything was 5/5. Their desserts were mind-nuking as well so make sure you leave some room. If you are a fan of after-meal scotch/congac/whatever, they will bring a trolley around and you can make your pick - which is stylishly oldschool. The price was reasonable for this level of quality in food, service and enjoyment. I'd definitely save their details in my phone for the next special occassion!Edwin Law

Wow! Seriously good on a world scale. Great room, great service and brilliant food. Maybe we will have to come to Sydney more often. Returned March 2015 for the 7 course degustation with matching wine. Guessed it would be special when Dom Perignon was served with the crab. Doesn't get much better, anywhere! The fois gras with hazelnuts was truly brilliant! My only slight criticism would be the lack of Australian wine, which we fixed with a well timed glass of the 2005 Rockford Basket Press.John Wise

I've been to a number of fine dining establishments in Sydney but this one is my far and away favourite. What it may lack in fancy views it more than makes up for in service and food. We covered almost all our bases and had almost everything on the menu (there were four of us,) and everything was sublime. Service was amazing, I loved how each dish was served simultaneously to each diner, so for every course, we would get a server each who explained the dish to us. The attention to detail was second to none. Other highlights included the Champagne trolley and Sam the waiter getting my menu signed by the chef (just dreamy if you're a food geek like me.) If you want a five star plus dining experience look no further, just go to est.Samantha Colden

Food-Blue cod I had there was mind blowing. Other foods are well prepared and shown too Service is top level, Great explanation of food and drink and staff are always there when you need Price is expensive to me but reasonable for this standard like Sepia, Flying fish in my opinion. Relaxed big and high roof old fashion room, yes, I like. If price is a bit cheaper, I would visit them every 3 months!yoshio tanaka

Museum of Contemporary Art Australia

Went to the "Chuck Close - Prints, Process, Collaboration" exhibit on level 3. The choice of materials chuck used is quite fascinating, there's a self portrait of himself which he printed in tapestry and I loved the depth and contrast it brings out, almost as if the picture is sticking out of the tapestry. There's also another piece where there is an elongated image on the ground and the image displays correctly on a mirror. Great exhibit. Always enjoy my visits to the MCA. Edwin Kwan

A lot of art to been seen! I'm not huge on art but wanted to take a stroll around to see what was all included. It's free also which was awesome. Great spot to check out in Sydney!Nate Babcock

Pretty shitty, empty building with only 3 levels (4th is a café). One giant room is completely empty, 5 others has tvs with wannabe-deep-art, lots of aboriginal paintings, a few stands with origami, a sculpt painted with a plate texture... Seems that the "artists" was just trying to do something unusual... because of lack of skills... - just like kids who first time discover zbrush or 3ds max. But they are Australians = they failed. Or maybe I've picked a wrong exhibition... Anyway - no excuse. Krios Uber

Disgusting that the old MSB building has been turned over for yet another art wankfest.Lance Lyon

Seriously, can you get a better location in Sydney than this? The main entrance is on Macquarie Street, opposite the Botanical Gardens. The other entrance is discreetly on Circular Quay. My apartment (NOT hotel room, a one-bedroom apartment complete with full kitchen, lounge room, separate bedroom, huge bathroom with spa tub and separate shower, and laundry facilities) is described as "Botanical Garden views" (the "back" of the hotel). What they didn't mention is that you also have an amazing view of that iconic, funny-looking building to the north...I think it's called the Sydney Opera House? The bar on the Mezzanine level also has amazing views of the Harbour and serves fabulous cocktails, wines, and beers. An early run in the Botanical Gardens starts your day and sitting on your private balcony overlooking the Gardens, with a glass of wine in hand, is a relaxing way to end your day. Last night I pulled the drapes closed and curled up on the sofa to watch a girlie flick. Heaven. Really, I have nothing bad to say about this place...except I'm upset not to be staying longer. For the price of an inner-city hotel room, you get all this. And it's well worth it. Peggy Allen Hayes

Nice place to have an afternoon coffee looking over the Quay. Same views as more expensive options and a restaurant and bar feel rather than hotel. If you are an Accor advantage member this become even cheaper to have your lunch or a quiet drink. not sure about the accommodation as i haven't stayed there.Elliot B

The wow about this hotel is the unbeatable harbour front location...gorgeous! Rooms are comfortable and with all the mod cons. The bar is perfect to start the night but not worth staying there for too long when you've got so many exciting options on your doorstep! Katrina M
