B: Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan’s Aria is probably one of the best representation of modern Australian cuisine. Located perfectly in the heart of Circular Quay, you get a breathtaking panoramic view of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. This restaurant should definitely be on your to-eat list, it’s one of the best Sydney has to offer.
Please excuse my low resolution images! Mr.K had the Peking duck consommé ($36) for the entree which is unfortunately in the photo.
For our mains, I had the chicken ($56) and he had the beef ($56) with truffled potato mash ($15). The menu does change so often so I don’t have the exact names of the dishes we had.
For dessert, I had the passionfruit soufflé ($25) which I thought was way too acidic for my liking and Mr.K had the pannacotta ($24) which was amazing and well balanced.
Amazing service, and the waiter who served us really knew a lot about their wine list. Overall, I think the price you pay is what you get. All the dishes were flawless and all beautifully plated. I do believe it was too quite when we were there, you would be able to hear a pin drop from the other end of the restaurant.
Would I come back? Yes, definitely.
