Aria is a beautiful restaurant near the Sydney Opera House. The food is marvelous and the service superb. It was the perfect start to our evening at the opera. Between Aria and the opera, it was one of the highlights of our trip.

The food was absolutely amazing and so flavoursome. My boyfriend and I could not fault the service. Everyone who attended to us was professional and extremely helpful. I never write reviews but I couldn’t not write one for here. Superb and will be back!!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
