Opera Bar

A quintessentially Sydney experience

With the Sydney Opera House as its backdrop and gun-barrel views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, it is not surprising that Opera Bar has become a favourite Sydney experience, perfect for firsts, finales and everything in between. Showcasing Australian suppliers and provenance, it’s a restaurant and bar that celebrates the seasons and shares local favourites.

Watch chefs shuck oysters and slice charcuterie to order, enjoy al fresco wine and cocktails at the water’s edge, or indulge in the lamb rump or fish & chips from the Opera Bar menu. Pop in during the evening and listen to live lounge music with a cool bottle of wine. Opera Bar is the venue for a lazy lunch, pre-show bite, or to wow those out of town visitors.


Curated by renowned celebrity chef Matt Moran

If you’re an Australian, you know Matt Moran. We’ve seen him on our screens on the global television sensation MasterChef, we’ve cooked masterpieces from his recipe books, and we’ve filled our bellies with delicious food from his many restaurants including ARIA, CHISWICK, North Bondi Fish and more.  And, because as Australians we can’t help but share the best of what our country has on offer, the Sydney Opera House couldn’t be prouder to share Matt’s culinary magic with millions of people from around the world at the one and only Opera Bar.

With a warm and welcoming atmosphere and million-dollar views, Matt’s curated menu is the final flavour to add to the Opera Bar mix. All menus have been designed by Matt with an emphasis on Australian produce, including produce from his very own farm. Drop in for a bite, your taste buds will thank you.
