Opera Bar, the venue with the best views of Sydney famous for its prime position under Sydney Opera House relaunched on 10 December after a complete redesign, menu overhaul and the introduction of two new concept bars.
Overseen by celebrity chef Matt Moran, the new Opera Bar showcases the best of Australia including quality produce and wines served on the edge of one of the world’s most beautiful harbours. This is arguably one of the world’s most exciting venues.
There’s a strong focus on seafood and you can perch at the raw bar for gin-cured Petuna ocean trout ($20) or settle in and order from the shellfish selection. Opera Bar is now a much more comfortable place do it than it was a few months ago. Timber-slatted benches line the foreshore and there’s new shade structures providing shelter from the sun. Small tables provide a place your semillon, cold-pressed juice, or lamb kofta.
The new venue includes interior and exterior seating for 700 people.
