Café Sydney

Café Sydney is located at the top of the Customs House building at Circular Quay. The name of every major port in the world appears in large metal letters around the vaulted ceiling. The place was packed with lunchtime business diners, all of whom appeared to have a glass of wine in hand. I was there with Claire, for a belated birthday lunch. The sun shone, the views were amazing, the service is slick and friendly and the food is extremely good, if somewhat exhaustively described in the menu (painstakingly reproduced for posterity below). Look out for the close-up of the tasty little goat's cheese polenta cake, the star of my plate.

  • baby beetroot and goat's cheese tart with caramelised onion, walnut, watercress and cabernet vinegar
  • grilled scallops with white anchovy, shaved fennel, cabbage, ruby grapefruit and pine nuts
  • twice cooked pork belly with pork fillet, prosciutto, caramelised apple, pistachio and jus
  • deboned spatchcock with chestnut mushrooms, cavalo nero, goat's cheese polenta and jus
  • rocket and parmesan salad
  • Vanilla panna cotta with stewed rhubarb and strawberries
  • Peppermint tea
