The charm of dining on Finger Wharf in Sydney’s Woolloomooloo lies no less in the natural beauty than in its historic quaintness. And how many times have I had to rely on spell check for Woolloomooloo. Did you know Woolloomooloo once upon a time was the most desirable suburb in Sydney to live in, being home of judges, merchant leaders, politicians before? In the first part of the twentieth century, Woolloomooloo later became one of the most colourful and roughest suburbs. Now it is gentrified and is one of the most charming places in Sydney to dine any day of the week. In fact, the last time I was here was for a business lunch during the work week. Food eaten by the water always seems to taste better, especially on a weekend when I can dine at my own pace. I lingered over drinks and lunch over the weekend, where Sydney siders leisurely stroll along the wharf. Just as stirring to the soul and appetite are the tranquil waters of Woolloomooloo Bay. At 12pm on a Saturday it's relatively quiet but by 1pm this place is full and just buzzes with guests.

Have you tried the Langham Club yet? Langham Club Sandwich that is. Well you ought to. Why? The Langham Club was voted the Best Club Sandwich of the year at The 2015 Gourmet Traveller Hotel Awards earlier this month, and that’s in addition to taking out New Hotel Of The Year and the 2015 Hotel Of The Year, the most awards any one hotel has received in the history of the event.

At Flying Fish, first class seafood beckons. Time … this is what you need when dining at the main restaurant of Flying Fish as an hour drop in lunch just won’t do to appreciate what this upscale, indulgent, fine dining restaurant has to offer. We leisurely strolled along Jones Bay Wharf over the long weekend watching boats in their winter covers bobbing on water as we headed towards Flying Fish located right at the end of the wharf. More often than not, I yearn for seafood and I could not ask for a better way to spend a long weekend with a fine seafood menu looking over the water on a beautiful Sydney Winter’s day.
Not many restaurants bask in the glory of being located on the site of first Government House in Australia. Located in the Museum of Sydney site on the corner of Bridge Street and Phillip Street, Circular Quay, The Governors Table Bar & Dining’s design was inspired by the history and architecture of the site, creating a hospitable space within the sandstone façade at The Museum of Sydney.
