Wondering where you can escape and enjoy a private harbourside dining experience with uninterrupted views of the Sydney skyline? Look no further than Portside Sydney. Located in the Western Foyers and Colonnade that were redesigned by Opera House architect Jørn Utzon in 2006, tables at Portside Sydney look across to Circular Quay and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The restaurant offers an à la carte menu perfect for pre-theatre dining, designed by chefs Elton Inglis and Karl Patrick Thomas.
Face masks are strongly recommended for all patrons while inside our theatres and foyers, including during a performance and on a tour, and other indoor areas including upon entering the building to access Portside. Please bring your own mask.
The Opera House Wilson car park is open and operating. We encourage patrons and visitors to book their parking prior to visiting the site. Where practical, we encourage patrons to use private transport options to minimise crowding on public transport. If you need to use public transport, please follow the travel advice from Transport NSW.
Portside Sydney is located beside the Western Foyers, with the dining space facing the Sydney Harbour Bridge – a perfect spot to take in the harbour views. Entry to Portside is via under the steps of the Opera House. Please follow the directions of our staff and signage.
Inspired by Sydney, Opera Bar’s food menu is light, sunny and made for snacking, sharing or savouring solo. Fresh, seasonal and sustainable, the menu showcases Australian suppliers and provenance and seafood is the star.
