The Sydney Opera House is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a sparkling yearlong celebration. Among the many exciting events and pop-ups is a fish-and-chip joint housed right under the sails of the Opera House. Open for a limited time only, the restaurant pays homage to the original seafood diner that operated in the same location of Bennelong Point in the late 80s and into the early 90s. ‘The Harbour‘ restaurant, which goes by the same name as the original eatery, is doling out classic nostalgia for the iconic landmark’s anniversary celebrations with sustainably-sourced fresh seafood and some of the best views in the city.
The Harbour, Sydney Opera House
Executive Chef Lee Thompson from Trippas White Group is serving up a stacked menu of seafood items including classics like fish burgers, potato scallops, marinated mussels, seafood platters, grilled prawns, salt and pepper squid and the classic, fish and chips.
A takeaway menu will also be available if you want to enjoy a picnic and some sunshine by the harbour. Projections of the original restaurant will be displayed along with casual chequered table cloths and picnic tables.
The original Harbour Resturant opened on the Northern Broadwalk in 1973. The harbourside fixture served up pre-show dining and champagne breakfasts from 11am. The restaurant closed its doors in 2001 to make way for the Opera Point Marquee — a huge events and functions space.
