Sunset Steak & Lobster Dinner 5pm thumbnail

Dine on Sydney Harbour and experience all the colour of autumn/spring sunsets, winter twilight or the endless days of summer on the 5pm Sunset Dinner Cruise. Start your evening with a glass of sparkling wine and a mezze plate to share, followed lobster & steak main course and a choice of desserts, with wine and beer included.

The Sunset Dinner departs at 5pm for a 1 ½ hour cruise of Sydney Harbour including beer, wine and soft drinks. The early evening start means an early finish, making this cruise the perfect option for pre-theatre dining, family groups and those wanting to wind down after a big day in the city. 

For the keen photographers, below is a rough guide to sunset times in Sydney:

  • Winter (Jun-Aug) 4.54pm - 5.37pm
  • Spring (Sep-Nov) 5.37pm - 7.51pm (note daylight savings time starts approx. Oct)
  • Summer (Dec-Feb) 7.52pm - 7.33pm
  • Autumn (Mar-May) 7.31pm - 4.54pm (note daylight savings time ends approx. Apr) 

Enjoy spectacular views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge as we cruise the main harbour. At the end of the cruise meander along the Darling Harbour foreshore and enjoy a nightcap at one of the many nightclubs and bars or catch the fireworks in Cockle Bay most Saturday nights. 

Dress: We recommend Smart Casual.

Service: My overall rating should have been "very good".

Waitress pleasant, food very good, wine on demand, lovely sunset, dining room very good, even though we didn't pay for a window table .

Product: Food very well cooked and served.

Sunset time was excellent. We saw a beautiful sunset, and some of our trip was in daylight, then as it grew dark we had the pleasure of seeing the bridge, Opera House and Luna Park lit up.

Service: Very friendly and efficient service, always attentive to drinks. Shame that the food main course (steak and Lobster) was only mildly warm.

Product: Good value for money package with the drinks included. Food main course was not warm

Service: The staff in the Cruise is very nice. My son want to go to toilet, they let us go inside before boarding. They set up baby chair before we arrived. They help us to take photos and ask for our opinion during the trip. I recommend the trip to my friends, some of them join the trip after my sharing and have positive experience.

Although the price is a bit expensive, the food and the view worth to pay this price.

Product: easy to buy the ticket, however it is not easy to redeem it.

The instruction is not clear enough.

Service: I booked the beef & lobster dinner for my wife and I. The beef was cooked just how we like it (medium rare) but the lobster was fairly dry and tough to remove from the shell. We did however have very good and regular service from the wait staff and the window seats I booked were wonderful for the views of the new Barangaroo park area and the rest of the Harbour.

Product: I generally found the website easy to use for the booking, including the options for seating and cruise times.

Service was fast and personable. Lobster overdone but steak was excellent. Enjoyed the beautiful views but thought we started back a little too soon and ended up stalling a bit to dock.

All in all a highlight of our Sydney experience!
