An absolutely fabulous experience... Highly recommend the 12o'clock sitting, all the food was beautifully presented and fresh....the selection and quality was excellent . The staff were all delightful and helpful. Obviously the view was amazing.... even on a cold wet day. The only downside was, 1.5hrs wasn't long enough, 2hrs would have been better.

Fantastic evening, great food and an abundance of it, plenty of choice of drinks and the entertainment was perfect. Highly recommended as the best way to see the fireworks in Sydney on NYE!!

Other Steve was . Was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Would highly recommend him and his sense of humor. Great way to end our vacation!!
