There are two pre-theatre dining options available to guests attending a performance at the Sydney Opera House. We offer a special two or three course, pre-theatre à la carte menu seven nights a week at 5:30pm or 6:00pm.

Alternatively, dine from the Cured & Cultured menu at the counter or in The Circle. On Friday and Saturday we offer a post-show Supper menu at both the Cured & Cultured counter and in The Circle.

Reservations essential.

Cured & Cultured offers casual, accessible dining; ideal for a bite to eat over a glass of Australian wine with friends. The menu often focuses on a single, pristine ingredient. Sit at the Cured & Cultured counter with a view of the chefs at work on the central level, or join the casual seating area in The Circle on the upper level of Bennelong near the bar.

The Table’s semi-private location offers the perfect spot for an intimate dinner for six to ten people without distancing diners from the buzz of the restaurant. The à la carte lunch and dinner menus will be offered, however there is flexibility to tailor to specific needs. The Table seats up to 10 guests.
