The Dining Room

Park Hyatt Sydney’s signature restaurant is a picturesque dining destination that is reminiscent of an elegant harbourside home. No matter where you are seated, you will enjoy uninterrupted views of the Sydney Opera House and harbour. Here you will discover premium Australian produce, local wines and craft beers, and that renowned Park Hyatt service.

Our menus are designed to share however the choice is yours. Choose to order share-style for the family, or select your own dish. We recommend our Feed Me experience – served sharing style for your entire table to enjoy. It takes the worry out of ordering and puts your trust in our chefs. They’ll surprise you with a selection of their favourite dishes, prepared using produce freshly delivered on the day.

The Living Room and Bar

Set in natural light, the stylish and glass-walled Living Room and Bar is the restaurant’s all-day dining venue ideal for pre-dinner drinks or post-dinner cocktails.

“The produce and ingredients we cook with are almost entirely from Australia, we cook it the best way we know how – and we keep it fresh and contemporary.”
