The cafe on the 4th floor has one of the best views in Sydney.....if not the world....and food and coffee are great and reasonably priced....I always make it a stop when showing friends from overseas around
I've been here to a few exhibitions over the past year and love the sort of stuff they have on. A bit more fun and engaging than traditional art. It's also in an ideal location at Circular Quay, haven't given the cafe/restaurant a try yet but it looks great.
Went to a wedding here on Saturday night - and this would have to be the most superb venue for a reception in Sydney! The terrace looks straight over Circular Quay, the Opera House and the Bridge. The food was amazing - with seafood everywhere and other wonderful creations. Wine was great and the service was brilliant and extremely attentive. I highly recommend this venue if you're planning a wedding that is truly special.
The grand dame of Sydney galleries is about to get a makeover. The $53 million upgrade of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) will allow it to host larger and more diverse international exhibitions. For us locals this means more exhibitions, a new rooftop café and a sculpture terrace with spectacular views of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour. The new space will open in 2012. In the meantime, wander in for a free art fix.
