It's only fitting that Sydney's most iconic structure is also home to its most iconic restaurant. Bennelong at the Sydney Opera House has re-opened its doors following a multi-million dollar makeover and its 99-seat dining room is more spectacular than ever. The exposed ribs of the building are still on display and the harbour outlook continues to make diners' views picture-perfect. What's new is celebrated Chef Peter Gilmore's menu, which is simpler, more produce-driven and relaxed. The kitchen offers a number of flexible dining options including a three-course a la carte meal that can be enjoyed in the main restaurant or in a semi-private 10-seater dining space called The Table. Request a table on the central and upper tiers of the restaurant to enjoy the "Cured & Cultured" menu; a beautifully curated array of raw and simple produce like oysters, cured meats, crustaceans and organic vegetable salads. Just like the Opera House, Bennelong's classic approach to hospitality keeps it contemporary and the restaurant remains one of the country's greatest dining experiences.
