I like to hang out in Sydney's inner and Eastern suburbs discovering the newest/best restaurants & cafes. Also enjoy getting to Melbourne occassionally to check out their dining scene. Good produce, great cooking and efficient service a must for any dining establishment.

This could possibly be the best hotel in Australia. Not cheap though so its really for the moderately well off or for people who have accumulated a lot of Hyatt Points. We had a terrific time at the Hyatt a couple of weekends ago. I was concerned about the location in terms of noise (right on the harbour and next to the harbour bridge) but couldn't have been happier. The rooms are super quiet with thick glass and multi blinds. The rooms are nicely appointed, well designed and the view is just spectacular. We opted for the more expensive Opera House view room and it's well worth it. Waking up each morning to the Opera House which was even more spectacular as the Vivid light show was on during our stay. Its is hard to pick any major faults here as it really is that good - only issue we had was having to call multiply times to get the batteries in the safe changed as it wasn't working (a few times the phone just rang out to guest services which is sloppy). Also when dining on the ground floor behind reception its really noisy - with so much marble and glass everything conversation just bounces around and its really hard to have a quite conversation. Other than these two minor things I'd highly recommend the Park Hyatt Sydney, no doubt the best Hyatt I've stayed in anywhere in the world.
We dropped in for a casual lunch at the cafe - such a nice day to be by the water. However the service was arrogant and annoying.We waited and waited for a table with the staff at the front bar telling us someone would seat us, eventually another staff came along telling us to wait even longer as we watched them clean up a table... Even though there were plenty of tables available. Staff eventually returned and when we asked staff if we could be seated outside at a table (we could see one vacant) staff huffed and escorted us to it, then quickly disappeared. It was at this point we discussed leaving but ended up staying. From here the service improved so we enjoyed fish and chips and a glass of wine. It is such since setting for a casual lunch but we won't go back - there are better places.
