Sydney is the cosmopolitan city of New South Wales. It is a hub of art, culture, and of course food. Regardless if you are travelling here for an upbeat adventure or a more relaxing break, you’ll need food during your stay. Luckily there is a lot to choose from! Discover the absolute must-visit food stops and experience the city’s world-class taste.

  • Sydney Fish Market

    Seeing as Sydney is right next to the water, it’s always a treat to taste the local fisherman’s haul. Sydney Fish Market is the largest working fishing port and fish market in the entire city, so if you want to try seafood, this is your best bet. Oysters are a Sydney speciality, so make sure to grab a bag during your shop around.

  • N2 Extreme Gelato

    You have most likely seen endless photos of N2’s ice-cream on your Instagram feed. The entire shop is made to look like a laboratory, with staff dressed in lab coats and liquid nitrogen used to freeze the ice-cream. Popular with both the locals and tourist, this delicious and trendy gelato bar is truly a unique experience.

  • Rockpool Bar & Grill

    This place promises not just incredible food but a grandeur building to go with it. Made in an art deco style, the place is filled with thick wood and delicious grilled meat. Sip on some delicious wine that goes beautifully with your steak as you relax in this tranquil atmosphere.

  • Bennelong

    If you want to enjoy your food with a view, Bennelong has you covered. Inside the Sydney Opera House, the restaurant gives you the jaw-dropping view of the stunning Sydney Harbour Bridge and the pristine Sydney waters. A perfect place for a pre or post-theatre performance, or even a great place for relaxing drinks night.

  • Icebergs Dining Room and Bar

    If you haven’t had enough of that ocean view, Icebergs Dining Room and Bar is overlooking the Bondi Beach. Enjoy a delicious lunch and venture out to the balcony after you have finished your meal for your next Instagram photo.

  • Flour and Stone

    Lamingtons are a staple among Australians, as one of the most popular and traditional desserts in the country. Flour and Stone is a small bakery, but its popularity is colossal, with their version of Lamington listed as the best in the city. Due to its small size but immense business, getting a seat here can be tricky, so we suggest taking your coffee and cake to go, walking along the Woolloomooloo Wharf for a stunning view.

  • 10 William St

    Buried down a side street in Sydney’s Paddington, this Italian wine bar is the perfect spot for a casual dinner with drinks. It is known as a bar first and a restaurant second, but the food here is just as mouth-watering and award-winning as the wine. Enjoy homemade pasta or delicious antipasto style foods, washing it down with some of the best red and white wine around!
