Nestled beneath the sails, House Canteen is a new all-day, canteen inspired dining venue with show-stopping views of Sydney Harbour. Crafted by Solotel Group and Matt Moran, House Canteen offers a vibrant pan-Asian, flavour-led experience suited to those on the run, and those stopping to take in the view.
Start your morning at the bakery with an early Single O coffee and BadeBoy Bakehouse donut while you watch the city wake up and the accompanying harbour's ‘commuter theatre’. At lunchtime, catch up with friends whilst sampling the Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese inspired dishes, or grab something on the run from our grab-n-go selection. Or join us pre- or post-theatre for a late-night snack and a fine wine.
Take a seat under the sails for inventive and fresh food with a view.
For a relaxed dining experience, please allow an hour for pre-theatre dining.

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.
House Canteen is located on the Lower Concourse level of the Sydney Opera House.
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.
