We’re excited to welcome you back to the Opera House, with two of our harbourside restaurants – Opera Bar and Opera Kitchen – now open.

We hope to have more details to share about the reopening of Portside, our other dining venues, theatres, tours, and shops soon. 

Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support and we look forward to seeing you at the Opera House soon.

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. 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.
