Sydney waterfront dining at its best. Seafood & Beef Restaurant & bar with views from the Woolloomooloo Wharf of stunning Sydney Harbour & city. Down on Woolloomooloo wharf you would be excused for thinking you're somewhere on the Mediterranean. Manta's head chef Daniel Hughes talks about his Italian heritage and how it influences the seafood on the menu.
The Tilbury Hotel is situated in the heart of Woolloomooloo. The interior boasts a warm and comfortable environment with varnished wood, long leather banquettes and fireplaces, along with a generous sized deck and tranquil courtyard. The dining room is situated downstairs with a view out to the courtyard. Chef Bryan O’Callaghan has created a contemporary Australian menu with Italian influences; it is driven largely by the extensive fresh produce available seasonally.

At the forefront of Modern Italian cuisine, Otto Ristorante reinvents the flavours of Italy in stylish new forms, accompanied by amazing service in a sensational harbourside location on Cowper Wharf, Woolloomooloo. Attracting local and international acclaim for its ambience and style, Otto is one of Sydney’s most popular and best-loved restaurants, providing guests with the unparalleled “Otto experience.” “It’s a little known fact, but Sydney isn’t always sunny, and those much-touted waterside restaurants can be mausoleums on the occasional wet and miserable night. Not so at Otto, which sparkles under the sun and gleams under clouds, with its not-too-noisy, relaxed, intimate style, good food, interesting wines, and superb service. Chef Richard Ptacnik’s menu is as good-looking as the fashion-concious regulars…” Simon Thomsen & Joanna Savill, Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2011
China Doll Restaurant
With its spectacular vista of the city skyline, China Doll elegantly resides at Sydney's historic Finger Wharf at Woolloomooloo. This stylishly sleek, award-winning, Iain Halliday-designed beauty offers a balanced menu of generously portioned, modern Asian dishes from the talents of Chef Frank Shek. China Doll modernizes, yet follows traditional oriental experiences from Japan, Hong Kong, China and across South East Asia. However, this is not Asian fusion cuisine. Each dish stays true to its roots. There is no compromise in technique and by using locally grown, superior produce, flavours are clean and distinguished. A synergy of flavours (hot, sour, salty, sweet and aromatic) is achieved to suit the western palate. Match dishes with a wine selection from the thoughtfully eclectic yet reasonably priced list, or simply relax on the wharf while the sun sets and sip one of our Asian inspired cocktails. The ‘yin and yang’ cocktail list, based on our interpretation of five spice (cardamom, star anise, Sichuan, cinnamon, lemongrass) is matched cleanly with the mod-Asian food. With the perfect mix of relaxed yet professional service, stylish food, cocktails and glamorous location, China Doll delivers the ultimate Sydney dining experience for locals and visitors to our great city.

The Old Fitzroy Hotel
The Old Fitzroy stands in the heart of the proud and colourful streets of Woolloomooloo. Tucked between the madness of Kings Cross and the Sydney city centre, it is often hard to believe that the surrounding 2011 postcode boasts the highest population density in Australia. The hotel sits on the corner of Dowling and Cathedral Streets, which alternatively lead east down to the Woolloomooloo waterfront and west to Saint Mary’s Cathedral in the city. It can easily be reached on foot or by public transport as it is a short walk from Kings Cross train station and the William Street buses. There is also plenty of parking available in the street.
