Why dining out in Sydney is different
from anywhere else in the world

To your right, the Manly Ferry chugs past the white sails of the world’s most famous Sydney Opera House. To your left, the Sydney Harbour Bridge feels so close you could reach out and climb it. In front of you sits a glass of chilled Semillon and a colorful posy of preserved wild cherries, albino and Chioggia beetroots, paper-thin radish, and a scattering of deep blue violets. Welcome to the lucky country. But it’s not just the opera house, sunshine and beautiful harbor that makes dining in Sydney different from the rest of the world. The lure of a good restaurant with accommodation is obvious: after indulging in a fine meal (with equally fine Hunter Valley wine) there’s nothing better than a comfortable bed within walking distance of your table. Some of the best places to eat in Sydney and New South Wales are now found in unexpected places – city laneways, country pubs, beach towns, or in tiny rural hamlets – and the journey to these places has become a culinary pilgrimage for food and wine lovers. Happily, many of these out-of-the-way restaurants now offer a high standard of accommodation (and many existing regional hotels are attracting star chefs keen on a slower pace of life) which means there is now a plethora of restaurants in Sydney and regional New South Wales to discover and explore.
