City Extra Restaurant Circular Quay

by John on January 3, 2010

It’s really great when your hungry and need a rest from sightseeing, to find a restaurant that is not only relatively inexpensive, they actually serve great food to boot. Remember this name when your a bit foot sore from walking all those steps at the Opera House and need a bite to eat. City Extra!

City Extra is a spacious restaurant right opposite the Manly ferry wharf, right on Circular Quay. They serve excellent food at a good price and you really can’t go past their “fish & chips” meal. Served with salad and hot bread roll, the fish is fresh and sweet and the chips golden fried, nice and crisp. I really enjoyed the way they present the menu, it is a newspaper with articles from Sydney’s past on the front page, and inside is the full menu and prices.

There is usually plenty of tables available, either by the sidewalk or inside, and the service is as good as any 5 star restaurant in Sydney.

We stumbled across City Extra on a recent trip to Sydney simply because it was Boxing day and our feet were hurting from all the special shopping in the city. We thought Circular Quay would be a quieter place to relax and have a spot of lunch. We took the free bus from the city heart to Circular Quay near midday and City Extra was right near where the bus stopped. First cab off the rank so to speak.

But enough from me, I’ll let the photos do the talking and finish by simply saying that next time I’m in Sydney, City Extra will be visited if I’m around Circular Quay when I’m in the need for a meal. We highly recommend this fine and affordable restaurant.

City Extra. they are open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Straight opposite the Manly Ferry Wharf.
