Eat & Drink

Spoil yourself… and your appetite

In The Rocks, good things can take time.

Take, for instance, a mouth-watering degustation at Australia’s most-awarded restaurant, matched with age-old harbour views and an indulgent cabernet. Or a long lunch in a convict-carved sandstone bar, where they stopped checking the time years ago.

It might be a sunset, 42-storeys high, with a cocktail in one hand and your camera in the other. Maybe you’d prefer a big breakfast, where you don’t get asked to leave when it’s time for lunch.

Or, perhaps, just a place to escape the CBD. Your own little nook, or cranny, filled with the aroma of a secret family recipe.

With more than 50 cafes, restaurants and hotels, it’s easy to find a place in The Rocks where you’ll be able to spoil yourself, and your appetite. Just make sure you take your time doing it.
