Some Of Sydney's Best Dining Choices

Jul 23, 2008
The wide range of restaurants, cafes and pubs that Sydney has to offer is a reflection of the city's cultural diversity. There are so many choices that it's almost like reading an atlas. You can choose from local Australian food, or European, Asian, Mediterranean, Italian, Japanese and lots more.

If traditional Australian food is what you've been looking for, consider a trip to Harry's Cafe de Wheels. They offer some of the city's best meat pies. For people seeking bush-tucker - traditional Aboriginal cuisine, including kangaroo meat - some venues offer this as well. While kangaroo has only been legal to serve in restaurants since 1993, foreign visitors have caused its popularity to soar.

Sydney's harbor means that many restaurants serve seafood exclusively, and it's a staple for many others. Leading restaurants that specialize in seafood include Five Dock Seafood Cafe and Fishface. You'll be able to try fresh snapper, mussels, barramundi, octopus, squid and prawns, all thanks to the Sydney Fish Market, located nearby.

The king of seafood in Sydney is Doyles Hotel, the town's oldest seafood restaurant. Its beach side location also means that this restaurant provides an amazing view of Watsons Bay.

For Italian fare, consider Mezzaluna and Gelbison, or look for some of Sydney's best pasta in Little Italy, at Norton Street in the Leichhardt inner city. There's a strong influence of Italy on the fashionable cafes, too. You'll see it in the great places on Potts Point, Darlinghurst and Bondi Beach.

Some of the town's trendiest spots also serve great coffee. For a good cup, check Bar Coluzzi, La Buvette, Bills, or Tropicana.

European influence can be spotted elsewhere, too. French restaurants include Sel et Poivre and Bistro Moncur. The Greek Mykonos and Spanish Capitan Torres are a hit with locals and visitors, and you'll find the best in Eastern European food at Corner 75.

For excellent Asian food from countries throughout the world, you can choose from a wide variety of restaurants. The Blue Elephant, Lebanon and Beyond, Chinta Ria and Malaya are just a few of the wonderful options available.

For those who love sashimi, sushi, teriyaki and tempura, or just a bowl of noodles, local Japanese restaurants are available to please. Raw Bar, Dragonfly, Sushi Suma and Shimbashi all offer great options.

For restaurant hoppers, each district offers a little something different. In the west suburbs, Turkish and Cambodian restaurants are great choices, while the south suburbs offer Lebanese and Greek food. In the north, expect great Japanese, African, and Indian restaurants, and European and Indonesian establishments to the south.

Is a view a priority? Consider The Summit, Catalina, or the Boathouse. For vegetarians, Harvest or Govinda's are great options, and if you're looking for a trendy place to eat, Bayswater Brasserie Restaurant and Hugo's won't fail to please.
