Cafe Sydney: Casual fine dining with a view of Sydney Harbour

Cafe Sydney is a casual fine dining restaurant in Circular Quay that offers great views of Sydney Harbour. We came here for a nice weekend lunch and will share with you our experience in this post.

To start off, we ordered the garlic naan bread. This was simple but delicious, the bread was full of garlic flavour and served warm.

We then ordered the Buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomato, pea, broad bean, mint, lemon salad. This was a decent salad, the buffalo mozzarella was nice and creamy and went well with the juicy tomatoes.

For my main, I ordered the suckling pork belly, morcilla sausage, pickled carrot, parsnip cream, prune and coffee hazelnut praline. This was a slightly disappointing dish, though the flavours were good and the pork belly was tender, the serving was very small for the price – there was only two small slices of pork belly on the plate.

We then ordered two desserts to share, the first dessert was the Deconstructed strawberry cheesecake with strawberry sorbet, biscuit crumb, cream cheese base, raspberry gel, fresh berries and edible petals. This was my favourite dish of the whole meal, it was beautifully presented and the deconstruction worked really well as all the flavours combined perfectly with each bite. The tartness of the sorbet and fruits balanced out the sweet biscuit crumb and rich cream cheese base.

The second dessert we ordered was the salted caramel and chocolate cake with vanilla sorbet and fresh fruit. This was a decent dessert, the salted caramel and chocolate was rich and nicely contrasted by the refreshing and creamy vanilla sorbet and fruit.

Overall, Cafe Sydney is a decent restaurant located in Circular Quay with nice views, however, the prices reflect great location and I have been to better value places that are also hatted.
