Quay Restaurant, Sydney

Perfect company, lovely ambience, superb food and excellent harbour views.
It was J's birthday and there was no better way to celebrate a special day than this.

The tasting menu was the way to go and J had his with wine pairing.
The food was exceptional.
It certainly was a wonderful and memorable dining experience we had
Australia's most awarded restaurant, Quay.

Taking in the views. Sydney's Harbour Bridge on my left 
and a magnificent view of the Opera House in front of me.
