Restaurants in Sydney

I'll be in Sydney 25-April - 3-May with my mom. Can you please suggest some good restaurants? We like all kinds of food and are interested in a combination of moderately priced and finer dining spots. Thanks!
Kim

One of our favorite spots for dinner while we were in Sydney was at Thirty Something. It's at the top of the Intercontinental Hotel I believe. It has great views of the harbour and opera house. We had dinner there our last night, and it was a wonderful way to end our trip. Our dinner was very good, and our waitress was excellent.

Another meal we enjoyed was at Doyle's on the warf, at Watkin's Bay. Take the ferry there and enjoy the views. It's a beautiful area.

Please note that it should read Watsons Bay for Doyles.

I think I answered this question for your Mum!

For a cheap feed, get the bus out to Newtown, a suburb not far outside the city centre and near the university. The diversoty of restaurantz is just amazing, and the people watching is fascinating, as well!

As a splurge, I suggest Edna's Table, in Clarence Street, Australian bush food, beautifully prepared and presented.

Catalinas at Rose Bay for more expensive evening in very nice surroundings with great service.
Fish and chips or burger from one of the older cafes run often by Greeks or Italians for great value cheap food -more common now in the suburbs.

Thanks, Prue, for catching my mistype. Thank you also, belatedly, for your advice regarding my trip before I left. The advice I received on this site made our stay that much more wonderful. On our crazy LONG flight over, I commented to my husband that we're never doing this again. On the way home, I said, "I can't imagine us not going back". Wonderful country. Wonderful people.

Hi Lois,
I am so glad you enjoyed your trip so much - I think the information that is exchanged this Forum is absolutely invaluable.
I pointed out the typo just in case someone was doing a search for Doyles and became confused.

This last Xmas I had friends visiting from overseas who are "foodies" and I asked around for recommendations. If you like chinese then try "The Golden Century" in Chinatown, Sydney. This was recommended by several people and my visitors raved about it. For more everyday eating - there are a lot of good eating "strips" in the inner suburbs - Newtown, Glebe, Balmain - for East Med and Indian food try Surry Hills.

Darling Harbour has a plethora of international restaurants located in one building. Like a mall. Great food. Greater prices. It's also a nice area to visit. Right on a wharf.

This was an email recommendation from someone else.

he ones to go to are: Tetsuya\'s (Charlie Trotter is a disciple), Marque - just outstanding classic cuisine, Longrain - great Thai food, EST, which is at Establishment hotel and Buon Ricordo for great Italian. If you want to do the starspotting thing and take in a great location, try Icebergs at Bondi Beach. These all have vg wine lists, some outstanding. Reservations essential, sometimes 4-6 weeks in advance for the \"punters\" nights of Friday and Saturday. Try and go earlier in the week when reservations are easier and the experience better.
