Casual dining away from the crowds

Wondering where you can escape and enjoy a private harbour side 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 of casual dining. There are kids' meals as well as grab-and-go options for pre-theatre goers. Indulge in braised beef cheek served with celeriac cream, crispy onions, bitter chocolate jus, and delight in our coconut & lychee trifle with lime leaf, ginger ice cream and freeze-dried fruit crumble. Or, just pop in for a coffee and treat. 

New Year's Eve Party of the Decade

Take your front row seats to the world-famous fireworks and escape the crowds this NYE in your very own slice of the Sydney Opera House. Enjoy the private western broadwalk with unobstructed views of the harbour bridge and dance under the iconic sails as the fireworks light up the sky.

As you arrive, you’ll be greeted with the finest Champagne, beers and wine, and an abundance of circling canapes. Portside’s fleet of friendly staff will keep your glasses topped and your appetite satisfied with a rotating feast of grazing stations and multiple serviced bars.

All the while, the incredible entertainment line-up will keep you on your feet dancing all night long – this is the NYE party you don’t want to miss!
