My partner and I had dinner here last night, what a disappointment. We are trying to get through as many of the restaurants in darling harbour over time and this has been by far the worst experience we have had.
The restaurants was pretty busy, I guess the other customers had skipped looking up reviews that night too, but we were seated pretty quickly and orders taken within a few minutes. The view was excellent and I didn't mind the bistro styling, thought the music was too loud. We were really excited.
The drinks were not too bad, though pretty small and very overprices but that's not uncommon for the harbour. Garlic bread came out, wasn't too bad, we were extremely hungry so it really hit the spot.
Mains came pretty quickly too, looked awesome, we both grabbed a chip (ordered at extra cost) and dipped it in the bernaise sauce (ordered at extra cost) Big smile from both of us while eating the first chip.
Quickly cut off some meat from our rotisserie tasting plates, took out first bites at the same time too, and our faces dropped. I've never had such overcooked meat at a restaurant, any restaurant, not even Bunnings on a Sunday morning. We tried to soldier on, I pulled the plate apart to separate the steak from the huge bed of badly cooked eggplant and zucchini.
Tried all the meats and forces some down, didn't enjoy one bite, partner agrees too. We were starving so finished off the chips and sauce, left the majority of the food on our plate, told the waiter how unpleased we were to no reaction, got the check and left.
We walked to McDonald's disappointed that we just spend $100 and were still staving. Then arriving at McDonalds, we were greeted with much better customer service and food preparation.
Worst experience I've had at any restaurant, Avoid at all costs.

After waiting 1 hour for our food to arrive. It was ok. Small portion sizes. Then went to pay, unknowing we were paying a $10 cover charge per person! Just to sit there. My son had to pay $10 to sit there as he still feeds of milk! Terrible!

Had a quick dinner here with my boyfriend and we opted to go for the early dinner special that they had.
I had the rotisserie beef with bearnaise sauce as my main and it was very filling and I could no finish the dish the beef was a tad too chewy for me but apart from that it tasted fine.
I chose the banana creme brulee for dessert and it was delicious! Would definitely recommend that.
The hostess seated us by the harbourside and the views were lovely, however, the wait staff were polite but a tad slow in their service.

My boyfriend took me to this restaurant for my 21st birthday and I loved it! The atmosphere was great, with lovely views of Darling Harbour. The service was friendly and the food was amazing (especially the dessert!). We had a three course meal which consisted of kangaroo meat and vegetable skewers, oysters and soft shell crab for the entree. Beef ribs and chips for the boyfriend and steak, potato mash and half a lobster for me, as well as an avocado salad for the mains, and creme brulee, sticky date pudding, panna cotta and sorbet for the dessert. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any couple who is looking for a romantic night out!

I went here with my mum using a Red Balloon voucher she was given. The breakfast was very nice. I didn't have wine but she did and said it was good. The food was great, a hot plate which we ate first, then a cold, sweet plate. I wish that the waiters had taken away the dinner plates we had between courses though, as nobody wants sausage juice on their blueberry croissant! The waitress left a lot to be desired, so we were glad when she seemingly forgot us and was replaced with a very nice waiter.

Sunday night out with my boyfriend. We were seated a table for two in a corner in the dark without near a heater where we were seated outside this time of the year! (Winter). Ordered a snapper with kipper potatoes. The fish came out whole, bones, scale, head attached and all! Disappointed that the fish wasn't filleted has everyone hates eating fish with bones and scales in the way. Chef prob did not care, what if a pensioner had ordered the fish? What if someone choked and used, the menu didn't state that It would come with bones and all!

If you have a few hours to kill and a good set of teeth, then this the place for you. The restaurant sits in a great location. They have 3 wait staff who run around like crazy yet not able to cope. Chef's on display, which looks good but overcooks lovely big pieces of meat. I went for a special occasion that was turned into a disappointing experience.

We had dinner here on Australia Day 26 January 2013. We had no booking, so we were wondering whether they would be able to manage a table for us. Lucky enough, they said that they just had a cancellation for table for 4. We were very glad. Although a bit noisy surrounding, the service was really attentive, and we were looked after very nicely considering how busy they were at the time. The food presentation and taste was good, no complaint for such a busy service. At 9 pm we had chance to see the fireworks, that was a real bonus.

We spent NYE at Adria's rebar & grill - Cockle Bay (2012). Not only did we have a perfect view of the fireworks but I will also say that the food was very good. With a set menu, you had a selection of a number of dishes. my pork belly was delicious! My entree of bbq king prawns was out of this world! The service was fantastic, nothing was a problem. From the day I booked a table of 12 ( 3 months in advance) they actioned all my requests and I will say, I'm not the easiest customer to please.
They had a dj playing music suited for all, I couldn't fault anything....
Thank you to all who made it such an enjoyable night

Lunch special was fantastic. We loved our meals, will definitely return. Only problem was deciding what of the wonderful options to order.
