This glamorous harbourside neighbourhood claims top spot for location, with uninterrupted views of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Set a little back from the shore, you’ll find a wealth of dining options along the buzzy restaurant strip. Every style and budget is well catered for, from cheap eats to fine dining spots – Kiribilli never ceases to deliver.
The Botanist delivers beautifully decorated, colourful dishes that are equally as delicious. As expected, this restaurant-slash-bar goes all out on the botanical theme – from the indoor plants to the wallpaper. Famed for its creative cocktails and classic eats – think gourmet sliders, pizzas, tacos, and share plates – it’s lush and a little bit quirky, and attracts a relaxed crowd. The best bit? The restaurant offers a ‘group feasting package’, which gives you a selection of the best share plates.
