in Circular Quay & The Rocks

Aria is a star in Sydney’s fine-dining firmament, an award-winning combination of chef Joel Bickford’s stellar dishes, floor-to-ceiling windows staring straight at the Opera House, a stylishly renovated interior and faultless service. A good-value pre- and post-theatre menu is perfect for a special meal before or after a night at the Opera House (two/three courses $90/120).
