Australia's Sydney Rock is a small oyster with a big, sweet-salty taste.

Located in the Overseas Passenger Terminal overlooking Sydney Cove, Cruise is divided into a first-floor bar and second-floor restaurant, both of which provide sweeping views of Circular Quay, Sydney Harbour, and the Sydney Opera House.

The home base of Brent Savage, one of the few Sydney chefs to embrace molecular gastronomy, Bentley offers up innovative takes on mostly European flavors.

It may not be the healthiest snack food, but it surely is the tastiest: a meat pie from the legendary Harry’s, a take-out restaurant that began in 1938 as a late-night food truck parked outside the Woolloomooloo naval dockyard.

Grab a cocktail at the Opera House's restaurant, where the bar is surprisingly little-known and the harbor views are knockout.

Celebrity chef Neil Perry opened this restaurant in a grand Art Deco building. The kitchen specializes in wood-fired grills and house-aged beef.

Owned by husband-and-wife team Ken and Amy Tai, this small restaurant specializes in traditional Chinese barbecued duck, as well as char siu (barbecued pork).
