Best Hotel Dining in Sydney

Top 10

Once the late-night last-resort option for weary travellers, Sydney’s hotel restaurants are now dining destinations in their own right, with some of our top chefs leading the charge. We love that if you’re too full to go home, you can simply check in, or if you’ve already eaten your way through your weekly wage, just lounge in the lobby and imagine you’re a guest at these luxurious establishments.

  2. Glass Brasserie at Hilton Sydney

    Sydney CBD, Sydney, New South Wales

    Not only is this the best hotel restaurant in Sydney, it’s one of the best restaurants in Sydney, period. In a city obsessed with ‘who’s new’, Glass, under the direction of Chef Luke Mangan, is proof that not all the action is at new establishments. Mangan refuses to rest on his laurels, offering an ever-changing menu that sings of seasonality and a focus on premium Australian ingredients. Plus, there’s a wine list that boasts over 1,000 drops, which are displayed in an impressive glass column at the centre of the restaurant.

  3. Altitude at Shangri-la Hotel, Sydney

    The Rocks, Sydney, New South Wales

    The best fine dining establishments understand that the experience is not just about what’s on the plate; it should really come with a view. And views don’t get much better than the 36th floor of the Shangri La, which overlooks Sydney's iconic attractions, including the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Altitude is all about reaching culinary heights, too, so the menu’s as impressive as the view.
