Restaurants in Australia

Located along Cowper Wharf in Woolloomooloo, Otto is among the top restaurants in Sydney. Head chef Richard Ptacnik has created a menu of modern interpretations of classic Italian fare. Dishes are decadently rich and utilize meats and produce from local sources.

Chorizo, beef cheeks, and other wine-friendly bites served by cheery surfers.

Serving some of the spiciest cuisine in Chinatown, this traditional Sichuan restaurant is the flagship of what is now a six-branch chain.

Now operating out of its new location, the former home of Ottoman Cuisine, the Wharf Restaurant at Pier 2 serves Australian cuisine created by chef-owner Aaron Ross. Menu items include the smoky eggplant cigar and a parsley, sumac, tomato, and mint yogurt salad.

The Tilbury Hotel, located amids the restaurants along the wharf, is quite possibly one of the most popular pubs in Sydney.

The restaurant serves straightforward local food that's as popular with natives as it is with those who've traveled thousands of miles for the island's revered salmon and beef.

This super-popular French café gets as packed as a Kings Cross brothel when the ships are in (as the old Sydney saying goes), especially during the breakfast rush.

The fresh-squeezed passion-fruit juice is a perfect palate cleanser.
