Fodor's Review

With windows overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Aria could easily rest on the laurels of its location. Instead, celebrity chef Matthew Moran creates a menu of extraordinary dishes that may be your best meal down under. It doesn't come cheap, though; two courses are A$105, three A$130, four A$155. Lunch is a little less expensive at A$89 for three courses. Make a reservation before you even get on the plane and look forward to the Peking duck consommé with duck dumplings, shaved abalone, and mushrooms; or the barramundi with smoked dulse (a kind of seaweed), which will change the way you feel about cabbage forever. If you really want to splurge, the seasonal tasting menu is A$300 for eight courses, and a pretheater menu is also available.
