Quay’s Upper Tower is Sydney’s most spectacular dining room and possibly one of the most impressive and inspiring restaurant experiences in the world.

In this delightfully intimate setting, floor to ceiling glass walls provide jaw-dropping views of Sydney Harbour that astonish even those familiar with its exceptional sights and sounds.

Experience an exquisite meal from Australia’s top chef, while the life of the world’s most stunning harbour city floats by outside. Your view of passing historical ferries, luxury liners and Sydney’s quirky local watercraft dotting Circular Quay, is bordered by the iconic Sydney Opera House on one side and the Harbour Bridge on the other, an endless maritime panorama with the city as a glittering backdrop.

Function menus reflect the current restaurant menu and feature from a selection of four entreés, four main courses and four dessert choices, each dish an embodiment of Quay’s food philosophy.

An intimate dinner, a business lunch or an important celebration are immediately given a whole new level of style and quality when hosted in the Upper Tower.

The Green Room at Quay is a spectacular venue situated upstairs from the restaurant. Named after the famous Sydney Opera House Green Room, it offers 240 degree harbour views, with the location of its namesake Sydney Opera House directly across the harbour.

This stunning venue spans 232 square metres opening up to spacious terraces facing Circular Quay on one side and the Harbour Bridge on the other. The stunning, plush interior of this amazing space subtly reflects the colour and images of its exquisite harbour side setting.

The elegance and style of this exclusive location is taken to the next level with the inclusion of Quay’s world-class food and wine menu. Incredible cuisine and Sydney’s magical harbour as the backdrop makes the Green Room a breathtaking option for wedding receptions and other functions that require that extra level of style and quality.
