de Groots Best Venues of Australia Venue Full Description

Cafe Sydney is at Circular Quay at the northern end of the CBD. From the restaurant it is a five minute walk to the Sydney Opera House.

With its spectacular harbour backdrop taking in the life and majesty of Circular Quay to its refined ambience, Cafe Sydney has become a hub for corporate clientele during the week as well as international visitors and celebrities. During weekends, the atmosphere changes with Sundays a cause of celebrations as musicians play laid back jazz or classical tunes. Situated on the top floor of the heritage listed Customs House, Cafe Sydney’s design includes dark timber and floor-to-ceiling glass doors to maximise the breathtaking views of Sydney harbour. Recycled black butt timber flooring has been sourced from demolished historical Sydney buildings and the main floor features paintings by artist Angus McDonald of the Harbour Bridge. Adding to the original interior, the refurbished Cafe Sydney Lounge designed by BKH, complements and invigorates the restaurant with a minimalist edge and large dramatic mirror wall as a significant feature.


With priceless views of Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House Cafe Sydney has become one of Sydney’s most sought after locations for corporate and private events. Cafe Sydney Breakfast is one of the hottest (and most affordable) function options and a fantastic way to stage seminars, launches or simply business or social networking events for between 80 to 300 guests. The minimum spend to hire the space is $5000 + 10% service charge on the total account. The venue is required to be returned by 10.30am to set for lunch service.

Cafe Sydney
– The restaurant can accommodate varying sized groups for breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails or launches. Cafe Sydney can be booked for exclusive use events for up to 120 seated or 325 standing.

Cafe Sydney Private
- Cafe Sydney Private is one of Sydney’s most stunning private dining rooms with terrace access, views of the harbour and room for 14 guests for an intimate dinner or 50 for a cocktail party. Featuring dark timber and chocolate Eames chairs, Cafe Sydney Private is the epitome of private dining in Sydney.

Cafe Sydney Lounge
– The lounge shines as one of Sydney’s most sought after cocktail venues. Featuring interiors by Sydney based design firm BKH, the Lounge compliments and invigorates the restaurant. Intimate and low lit, the Lounge features glowing tables by Korban Flaubert and Italian chairs in black cane and white leather by Vittoria Bonancini set against glowing orange carpet and a dramatic feature mirror wall.

The cuisine at Cafe Sydney reflects the flavours most associated with Sydney and its role as a harbour city. Chilled crustaceans, oysters freshly shucked to order, grilled ocean fish and quality cuts of meat all grace the menu in innovative ways. For groups of 11 up to a maximum of 40, a three course selection menu derived from the a la carte menu is applicable.
