Harbour Restaurant

On a floating restaurant fit for it’s vista, we’ve created a new waterfront dining experience in Sydney like no other. With the perfect blend of casual dining, local produce and spectacular views, our revamped Sydney 2000 vessel is now the perfect spot for a quick lunch, a casual catch up even or a dinner with friends before a night out in the city. If the ambiance and views are too spectacular to leave, join us downstairs in the Harbour Bar for a nightcap and live music. Our new Harbour Restaurant redefines waterfront dining in the greatest city in the world.

Our new Harbour Restaurant is an unrivalled waterfront restaurant experience. A place where people come together for a unique and once-in-a-lifetime Sydney Harbour dinner with a view

Sydney’s Harbour is elegance personified and it boasts a world class horizon that is effortlessly beautiful on just about any day.

But we also recognise that our harbour is more than just a premium setting for an à la carte dining experience, it’s also a place where people should be able to come together for casual meals and spontaneous celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries or reunions.

With our newly revamped Harbour Restaurant, we can offer the best of both worlds. A distinctively relaxed dining setting with an unrivalled view and a new refined menu that compliments every part of your experience.

For seafood lovers, our fresh prawns and barramundi are a favourite, or for carnivores the local eye fillet steak is hard to go past on our menu. We also offer vegetarian and gluten free alternatives.

Our reimagined restaurant on the water is open anytime during the day, running until 10.30pm and stopping regularly at both Darling Harbour King Street Wharf and Circular Quay in 90 – 120 minute sittings.

Dine in the sun against one of the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows or join us in the afternoon for a longer lunch which will have you sitting beneath the glow of an idyllic Sydney sunset sipping from our extensive list of hand-picked local wines.

Welcome to Sydney dining reimagined, welcome aboard our new Harbour Restaurant.
