Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge is amazing! The exhilaration of being on top of the world, the effort of climbing all those stairs, it’s quite likely you are going to want to celebrate afterwards. So here are my suggestions for some great places to eat after your Bridgeclimb.
Where to eat after your Bridge climb
After a sunrise climb – Breakfast or brunch
Pancakes at the Rocks – Stacks of pancakes with maple syrup might be just want you need after a sunrise climb. The pancakes here are good but the restaurant in is the basement so not very attractive. This is a really popular choice for families for lunch and dinner too.
La Renaissance Cafe Patisserie – Fancy a pastry hit? You will have to let your diet go out the window here but you will not regret it. Besides you just climbed how many stairs? 😉
Fancy a picnic
The Fine Food Store – fancy a picnic under the bridge? The takeaway menu from the Fine Food Store in the Rocks has plenty to help satisfy even the hungriest of bridge climbers. They also sell my all-time favourite coffee, Campos. This cafe is under the Rocks Discovery Museum which is also worth a visit while you are in the area.
Feel like a cold beer and a pub meal
Australian Heritage Hotel – If you fancy eating the coat of arms this is the place. Emu and Kangaroo both feature on the pizza menu along with crocodile for the really adventurous. Pizzas, pies and main courses are priced from $25. Great range of beers on tap too.
Glenmore Hotel – The Rooftop Bar will give you a great view over the harbour while you eat. Good standard pub food.
Phillip’s Foote– Cook your own steak – not fine dining but the garden atmosphere makes for a relaxing lunch.
Something a little nicer
If you faced your fear of heights or perhaps proposed on your bridgeclimb you might want to go somewhere a little more special. You could try one of these:
Fish at the Rocks – Beautiful fresh seafood with non-seafood meals available if you advise the restaurant in advance. Good value early dinner menu.
Sake – Japanese fine dining, the food here is good and the ambience perfect for a romantic meal. It is expensive so check the menu first and make sure it fits your budget. The desserts are so pretty and my favourite part of the menu here.
Pony – Pony is a little pricy but well done. I love to order the share plates and sit on the balcony with a bottle of wine on a warm day.
Have you booked your Bridgeclimb yet? This is one tour I highly recommend you pre-book because dates do book out.
