There's just something about eating in front of a view. It could be the sense of place and occasion that a good view grants; a sweeping vista also has a way of enhancing the taste of every bite, in a strange way. Restaurants with a view can even draw focus and absorb silence. And can do most of the heavy conversational lifting on a date, catch-up or special occasion.
Luckily, we're in Sydney and if there's one thing Sydney can lay claim to it's eating surrounded by natural beauty. That's why most of the restaurants in this guide look out to the water. The rest rely on the city's glistening skyline.
