reviews

Bennelong serves food that celebrates the Sydney Opera House and its extraordinary architecture. The menu is a reflection of where modern Australian food is today.

Gourmet Traveller, September 2015

Pat Nourse:

“Bennelong is back and better than ever with a definitively Australian menu, stellar crew and fit out worth of its architectural origins…”

Lizzie Meryment:

“Bennelong is a triumph. In providing a restaurant that is fine — very fine — without being threateningly sophisticated, and at a price point that is expensive yet not ridiculously so, they have offered a stage for more Australians to engage with the work of one of our finest ever culinary minds in our national house. It fits. It works. Bravo. Take a bow.”

Terry Durack:

“What I wasn't expecting was the sense of joy, the pride, the warmth and generosity that comes from the Fink family's patronage, the inspirational Gilmore and chef de cuisine Robert Cockerill, and the friendly young staff. If you want to feel good about Australia's place in the world of food and hospitality, go. Just go.”

Freya Herring:

“By God, this is a beautiful place to eat a meal.” The thought is almost certain to strike at some point as you dine under the dominating, post-Brutalist arches of executive chef Peter Gilmore's new restaurant inside the Opera House sails. And that’ll be before you even see the food”

Cured & Cultured, Myffy Rigby: 

“…Winter sees a new reason to fall in love with the Utzon sails, but it has nothing to do with seafaring mammals and everything to do with chef Peter Gilmore. He’s the man behind this three-part odyssey that's commanding the attention of every food-loving fool in the country. But today we're eating at the Cured and Cultured counter. What you're looking at here is full-service lusciousness with a laid-back attitude. It's luxurious, yet accessible. It's the cream and the crunch without the starched linen.”
