Bennelong serves to celebrate the Sydney Opera House and its extraordinary architecture by offering a culturally significant and inspiring menu curated by head chef Peter Gilmore.

Named Best New Restaurant in the 2015 Good Food Guide and awarded two hats for three consecutive years, Bennelong offers a range of dining options.

Peter Gilmore describes the philosophy at Bennelong: “The menu is very much crafted in partnership with the farmers, fishermen, breeders and providores from across the land with whom our chefs work together with every day. We’ve made sure the dining experience at Bennelong is accessible and flexible. Our cooking is not overly technical and tricky – it’s robust and direct – allowing the pure flavours of the ingredients to sing.”
