One of Sydney’s most Instagrammable venue is obviously not a secret spot... What is less well known is that Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is home to one the most delicious and splendid all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. Something to do with the endless supply of coffee, tea and fresh croissants make it worth getting out of bed for!
Have you ever dream of a space where you can eat well, practice pilates, yoga, gym and receive advices from personal trainer, nutritionist and chiro? And all this in a stunning light-filled space. Well... The Well did it!
Have you heard of Izakaya?
Is a Japanese-style gastropub that serves food, alcohol, and does not try to “turn tables” by rushing customers out. A place where you can linger with good friends, good food, and good drinks. And that's the most important part!
This cafe will make you save flight tickets to France. The lovely all in stones courtyard in this 150 years old building gives immediatly a French vibes. You can feel you landed in a tiny village of South of France, 19th-century cast iron mirrors french garden furnitures, terracotta pots and a 25-year-old olive tree contribute to that feeling.
Waterfront hideaway: Cottage Point Inn
Buckle up if you decide to take the air for a stunning flight to this waterfront hideaway. This old boathouse turned into a restaurant, nestled on the banks of the Hawkesbury River is the perfect hideout for a lazy long lunch and offers one of Sydney's most beautiful fine dining waterfront locations.
Down a one way street in Potts Point, it really is a suprising find. This charming old cottage in Potts Point has been converted into an old fashioned trattoria.
Obviously here the headline act is the platter centred on your choice of salumi, speck, culatello, prosciutto coming locked and loaded with chunky house-made pickles, a jacket potato, Sicilian green olives, some slices of asiago cheese and bread.
Looking for a breakfast in the jungle? If you pass by, you will probably not notice this little hidden oasis in the heart of Paddington.
The long leafy path will take you to an al-fresco area, filled with plants and sun. This secret garden with tropics vibes is the perfect spot for all day breakfast and to escape the hustle and bustle and crowed terraces.
A Mozzarella bar: Buffalo Dining Club
A needle in a haystack: can't be found
Pasta in a hollowed-out wheel of pecorino: can be found
Imagine some spaghetti served "al dente" in your plate directly from a hollowed-out wheel of cheese. We call that "Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe" and it's pretty impressive. Who wants to try?
A hidden rooftop: East Village Terrace
It’s worth the climb to drink up on the rooftop of this jazzed-up pub.
We don’t need to tell you how much Sydney loves a rooftop bar, and the top floor addition to the East Village Hotel is an A-grade, lofty drinking perch.

What is French' favourite sport? The terraces hunt but even more: THE APERITIF!
Nestled in Darlinghurst, we found a French style bar mixed with a tapas bar, outdoor terrace worthy of the name, Black Bottle! Serving up European small plates, there is no set menu.
For those of you who don't know yet, we have a little secret to tell you ... Every last Friday of the month, the quiet and peaceful terrace of the Museum of Contemporary Art turns into the ARTBAR. But what is that? It’s art but not as you know it, it's an unique gallery experience...
