Aria Restaurant Review

: Dine for lunch when the bustling harbor and quay is at its best, or come by night when the Sydney Opera House glows white against the lights of vessels on the water. If your schedule includes a show at the Opera House, you don’t miss out on fine food as it’s only a short stroll away across the Forecourt to a pre-theatre or supper set-menu at Aria. However, it’s the magic on the plates that has kept diners returning to this key player in Sydney’s dining scene. So, it’s inevitable: celeb-spotting comes as an added bonus. High-profile chef Matt Moran, co-owner with Peter Sullivan, and the highly skilled team of chefs ensure that no detail is missed. Even the lamb is carefully reared on Moran’s family farm, and Moran continues to build on his formula at Aria. Moran’s specially designed Kitchen Table overlooking the chefs at work allows him to discuss the eight-course tasting menu with up to eight lucky diners. This experience will set you back a cool $300 per person; $425 with matched wines from the stand-out wine list. The 3-course lunch option is $95, wines extra.
