Looking for a new restaurant to try in Sydney? These are the dining experiences that have passed the taste test with flying colours and come highly recommended by RedBalloon customers.

"Delicious food and an amazing view."

"We were greeted with a very friendly welcome by the staff. Our three course meal was outstanding. Every detail of each dish from the presentation, flavour and colour was amazing. The spectacular 360 degree views from the restaurant were truly fantastic. As this was a present from our daughter and son-in-law they were thrilled that we had a great time and loved it. We will recommend this deal to our family and friends."

>> Sydney Tower Revolving Restaurant 3 course lunch for 2, Sydney

"A fantastic dessert platter!"

"We weren't sure what size the dessert platter would be so we had a pizza to start. It was not needed! It was five full size desserts and they were all absolutely delicious! Cocktails and pizza were excellent too and we're looking forward to going back."

- Liz

>> Dessert platter and cocktails for 2, Darling Harbour, Sydney

"Good food and good views."

"Initially I wasn't sure what to expect as a cruise on the Harbour isn't really my cup of tea. However, I was quite pleased by the size of the ship, as well as the organisation of the staff. Everything ran smoothly, the staff were very friendly and helpful and it was a nice comfortable atmosphere. The main was great and the desserts were good too."

>> Sydney Harbour cruise with 3 course lunch for 2, departing Circular Quay, Sydney

"Great food in a historic setting."

"We were warmly welcomed by owner Fiona and seated in a nice room with a cosy fire. Our three courses were all delicious, starting with a mixed platter of local produce. Each course was introduced by Fiona or the chef; the later providing an interesting insight into the preparation of the various dishes. My wife had rabbit pie while I tried goat in Moroccan style as our mains. The servings were plentiful, but we were not going to miss the delicious desserts, followed by coffee. Recommended without hesitation."

>> 3 course regional lunch experience  for 2, Blue Mountains, NSW

"A lovely night out."

"The progressive meal for 2 was a great experience! All venues were close enough together for an easy walk, even in heels & battling a stormy Sydney night. Staff at all restaurants were outstanding making us feel like VIP's with special tables set up ready to go when we arrived. You will definitely not go hungry either; we struggled to make it through to the end of dessert!"

>> Progressive 3 course dinner with drinks for 2, Darling Harbour, Sydney

"Yum, yum, yum."

"Do not think twice about purchasing this experience. From the moment we walked in we were in awe of the ambience this place had. From the perfect table arrangements to the breathtaking view! The staff were very attentive and lovely to us at all times. Then there's the food... Oh my how the photos do not do it justice! Tastes even better than it looks and serving sizes are quite big considering it is a fine dining restaurant. We did not walk out of there hungry! And the desserts...absolutely divine! Will definitely be booking this again, but this time for dinner to see Sydney shine at night and I'll be convincing my friends to come along!!"

>> Modern Australian 3 course lunch or dinner for 2 (Midweek), Rose Bay, Sydney

"An amazingly delightful dinner not to be missed!"

"After living in Italy for 10 years of my life and being exposed to some of the tastiest food in the world, I'm happy to say that myself and my partner who have now lived in Sydney for 2 years have found a restaurant which represents the core fundamentals of a good Italian meal:
1. Top quality produce
2. Bringing the true flavours of each individual ingredient to life 
3. The customer should never leave feeling hungry
4. Price to quality and portion ratio
I am happy to say this dining experience ticked all 4 boxes. We will not only be back, but we will happily bring our family and friends."

>> Beachfront 3 course dinner for 2, Manly, Sydney

"An awesome experience!"

"I arranged this for my partner's 30th birthday and it well and truly exceeded our expectations! The food at Jonah's was delicious and the service was fabulous. Great food, great wine - what more could you ask you for? An experience that will definitely be recommended to friends and family."

- Kendall

>> Seaplane to Jonah's Restaurant for Lunch for 2, Whale Beach departing Rose Bay, Sydney

"Fantastic food and service."

"Great place to have lunch sitting on the Harbor with a view of the Sydney Opera House and bridge. The food was beautiful and the wine was nice (and I'm not a fan of wine!) The service was outstanding. I'm a very happy customer."

- Danielle

>> Two course lunch and wine overlooking the Harbour for 2, Sydney

"Great food and beautiful location."

"My partner and I liked that we had three choices to choose from for each of the 3 courses. Everything I chose (entree - tuna, main - salmon, dessert - chocolate fondant) was divine and devoured within minutes. The accompanying wine tasted so good in the summer sun we paid for another one!"
