CAFE SYDNEY - THE ROCKS SYDNEY
5th Floor, Customs House
31 Alfred Street Circular Quay Sydney
The first thing that hits you when you leave the lift is the grandeur. Then you move from the bar area into the restaurant and the million dollar views dazzle you! This was the view from our "indoor" table! The service was a bit slow to start with after we had our menu's but once our actual waiter was there it was impeccable.
First nibble before mains was the goat cheese and spinach naan - which came warm and gooey (on the inside). Great flavours and at $3.50 a bargain here. We also had a sourdough roll for $2.50 which was (surprisingly) not warm as well. Nevertheless, it was nice.
Mlady chose the Cone Bay barramundi, Moreton Bay bug croquette, celeriac remoulade and anchovy butter. She raved about it. It had an amazing combination of flavours and tasted great. The croquette was also a winner on its own! This dish cost $39 .00.
The indoor area opens on to the outdoor area so there's not a lot of difference. They have heaters everywhere outside too so its toasty. Cafe Sydney is a great place for a special meal.
