TESTIMONIAL
"We hosted our Christmas cocktail party at the iconic Cafe Sydney. The menu prepared by exec chef James Kidman was truly special and perfectly matched to the Champagne and cocktails that were served on the evening. The attention to detail of the staff made the whole function very special, in an elegant and subtle way. Coupled with the most beautiful views of Sydney harbour, we certainly had a magical night."
