The address might scream "tourist trap," but don't be fooled. This is one of the best restaurants in Sydney, and has been ever since Peter Gilmore became chef in 2000. Among the must-try dishes is the "sea treasures" starter of sashimi tuna and poached octopus with green-tea rice, wasabi, and dashi jelly. The suckling pig entrée is braised then roasted and served with prunes cooked in Spanish sherry and cauliflower cream. The prices are high, but they're somewhat tempered by the million-dollar view. Book way in advance for dinner.

Open Tuesdays through Fridays noon to 2:30 pm and 6 to 10 pm; Saturdays through Mondays 6 to 10 pm.
