… but this time without kids ;-). After my tips for restaurants in Sydney with kids, I’ve been asked for some recommendation if you manage to organise a babysitter. So, here is my absolutely subjective list of restaurants for a lovely dinner for two (please keep in mind that reservation may be necessary):

  • Café Sydney – great view, great food, great music, what more do I need to say? Yes, some people say the location is very touristy, so what? They miss out on a fantastic lunch (or dinner) 😉
  • Ripples Chowder Bay – you sit right at the water, in lovely company, enjoy your brunch/lunch/dinner (pick one) – life couldn’t be any better, could it? The only downside is the parking: if you’re lucky to find one, you have to pay for it. So maybe come in style by water taxi?
  • Toko – in the middle of Crown Street, Surry Hills, is a stylish Japanese restaurant with delicious food. And the drinks at the bar next door are also rather nice!
  • Sean’s Panorama in Bondi Beach – the biggest problem with this restaurant (besides finding parking for your car) are the opening times: Wednesday to Saturday for Dinner, Saturday and Sunday for Lunch. That’s it! Which doesn’t make it easy to get a table, but it’s worth it! The restaurant has a laid back/shabby chick vibe, which makes it easy to enjoy the great food.
  • Marque – almost the complete opposite of Sean’s Panorama: stylish, sophisticated, lot’s of white & black. The food: delicious doesn’t even describe it. Awarded 2012 Australian Restaurant of the Year (again) by the Gourmet Traveller, you’re in for a very special evening (admittedly not of the cheap kind).
  • Icebergs Dining Room and Bar – ok, maybe if you dine every evening at the water it get’s boring, but until then: enjoy the view, the food, your company and have one of the best evenings of your life!
