Fresh on the Scene

Imagine if you could combine the finest Paris bistro food with views across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay. Well, you can. Dine with Sam Mac as he experiences exciting French flavours, with a brilliant view of the Harbour, at Whalebridge.

Perched on the foreshore walk between Circular Quay and the Opera House, Whalebridge is one of the best places in Sydney to pull up a chair, eat some incredible food and watch the world go by.

For entrée, try the spectacular seasonal crudité vegetables with aioli, the perfect duck liver parfait or a can of Ortiz anchovies with crispbread. And of course you can go past the charcuterie – jambon, saucisson and pork rilletes with olives, pickles and sourdough baguette.

If you’re in a mood to celebrate, or just want to match the food and the view, try the seafood platter. Lobster, prawns, scallops, oysters, mussels – what more do you need. Maybe a glass of champagne to go with.

And for mains, try the grilled market fish with meuniere sauce or the bistro classic, steak frites with a divine café de Paris butter.

Come for a special celebration, a three-course long lunch, or just pop in for a drink and a bite on the way to the theatre. Bring a visitor to show off the city, or just enjoy it for yourself.
