Bennelong serves to celebrate the Sydney Opera House and its extraordinary architecture by offering a culturally significant and inspiring menu showcasing a most magnificent production of Australian food and wine. We offer a 3 course menu with sides for $190 per person.
Our cooking is not overly technical and tricky – it’s robust and direct – allowing the pure flavours of the ingredients to sing. We’ve enjoyed developing a whimsical dessert menu based on traditional Australian sweets, and the wine list, similarly – is a reflection of the best of Australia – without taking itself too seriously", Peter Gilmore.

    Wonderful meal, wine and harbour views. Exceptional sommelier experience! Dessert course was nice and of course we got the pavlova shaped like the Opera House: Beware that Opentable is off by two hours on reservations made in the states. We booked 8:15pm and the restaurant had 6:15 as our booked time. Fortunately, when we showed them the app's reservation they made it work. But it was a bit of a wait, and we were initially made to feel like we had erred given time zone misunderstanding when the problem was with Opentable. Most of Bennelong's reservations are made directly, so they didn't have much insight into Opentable. The host did take a photo of my reservation on my phone to report it:

    たまたまクラシックのコンサートと重なり、すばらしい雰囲気でした。食事もたいへんおいしくいい選択だったと思います。 ただ、照明が暗く見た目の美しさがよくわからなかったのが唯一の減点にしました。

    The food here was like nothing I have ever tasted and won the evening. Amazing! The service was also first class. For regional travellers, this was definitely an experience we don't often get.

    Beautiful venue for a special occasion dinner. My fine dining experiences in the past have been different than the experience I had at Bennelong. That doesn’t mean that the restaurant was off, it could have a cultural misinterpretation on my part. The meal lacked some continuity with regard to the servers and service. Entrees and main courses were served staggered to our party, not at the same time. One entree was partially dropped on the floor just as it was being served, but they recovered nicely and had a replacement within 3-5 min. The food was very good, but with 5 glasses of wine for a party of 3, I don’t know that it was worth AU$900. The real reason to dine at Bennelong is the venue.

    It was wonderful! My husband and I visited Australia for the first time and wanted to have a wonderful experience. Bennelong did delivered and the servers are wonderful, though they forget to give us utensils when we had our deserts. But all is forgiven. Next time we are back in town, we are sure to come by again.

    This was a special treat during our visit to Sydney! It was a once in a lifetime experience in an unbelievable venue. The food matched the atmosphere and was phenomenal! I hope we get to go back and experience this again!

    It was a lovely day out, lovely food, attention to detail, the service was all fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed by us. Our waitress - Ashlyn was very professional in her service, very friendly and courteous. We wish her well for the rest of her stay in Australia. I advised the restaurant that a member of my party was celebrating a special birthday and we were given a table with a lovely view and a cupcake as a birthday cake complete with a candle. And all very discretely done too - beautiful!
