Book a Business Lunch in Sydney

Updated May 11th, 2021


There's a right occasion for trying new restaurants. Business lunches aren't it. You want somewhere more classic. Somewhere safe, quiet and a little bit sophisticated. Attentive service is a must.

We've collected the city's best and they're bookable right here on Broadsheet. Stick to the top half if you're looking for something conservative. Further down the list, the white table cloths disappear and things get more fun and informal.

  • You’ll dine in Art Deco style at the refurbished Sydney Water Board HQ.

  • Innovative Chinese-Australian fusion in a low-lit underground restaurant. More than a decade on, it remains one of the best places in Sydney to try the lesser-seen cuisines of China's Yunnan, Hunan and Jiangxi provinces. While Sichuan food is king here, the entire menu is stylish, vibrant and well-balanced.

  • From its opulent, art deco interior to the theatrical service from floor staff, Rockpool remains one of Sydney’s premiere special occasion restaurants. It champions sustainable, grass-fed beef from Blackmore Wagyu and Cape Grim, on a menu abound with raw seafood, pasta and uncomplicated sides. The experience is enhanced by a wine list to rival any in the country.

  • Ethically sourced seafood on the waterfront.

  • This Rose Bay fish 'n' chipper by Saint Peter's Josh and Julie Niland recreates the simple joy of a takeaway roast-chook dinner – but with fish. Order whole, half, and quarter Murray Cod fillets crackled to perfection, luxe sides, and sustainable cocktails by pioneering zero-waste bar, Re–.

  • The restaurant in Angel Place has whole rotisserie beasts, daily cheeses, an enviable wine list and charcuterie.
