Sydney Opera House: Taste of the House.
Calling all foodies. Wine and dine your way around the Opera House’s restaurants and bars at this progressive long lunch experience, showcasing the best food, drinks and views all in one afternoon.
This experience runs on the last Sunday of each month from 10.45 am.
Embrace your inner bartender at Opera Bar
Escorted by your own personal Sydney Opera House guide from Stage Door, start your journey with a cocktail-making class hosted by one of Opera Bar’s master mixologists. Learn to craft a House favourite, the Sydney Sling, and then take a moment to enjoy your creation over a fresh seafood tasting plate – courtesy of their in-house Raw Bar.
Get hands on at House Canteen
Make your way to Sydney’s new all-day, canteen inspired dining venue for dumplings and beer. Then learn something new and enjoy an open air chef-led class on how to master a poke bowl. The best part? You get to eat it afterwards.
Settle in for a leisurely lunch at Midden by Mark Olive
Midden by Mark Olive, our newest venue with an Indigenous Australian inspired menu will dish up braised wallaby shank with a range of sides, paired with matching wine. We can’t think of a better spot for lunch with some of the Sydney’s best harbourside views.
Come behind the scenes between courses
Entering through Stage Door, you will be led through backstage spaces and onto the Boardroom balcony, where you will be served Sgroppino, a citrus sorbet palate cleanser with Archie Rose gin and Presecco as you enjoy the uninterrupted views of Sydney Harbour.
Indulge in dessert and jazz at Bennelong
Last stop is under the sails at Bennelong Restaurant for a signature dessert by Executive Chef Peter Gilmore. To celebrate Sydney Opera House’s 50th anniversary, indulge in the Bennelong Pavlova, a decadent dessert in the shape of Sydney Opera House.
This indulgent dessert is paired with the Bennelong Martini and music performed by Australian jazz musicians as part of the Bennelong Presents Sunday Jazz series. Fancy a last drink? You’re welcome to purchase as you go.
Taste of the House approximately 5 hours. A dedicated guide will meet guests at Stage Door at 10.45am, and will host the group from Opera Bar, House Canteen, Portside and behind the scenes on the Boardroom balcony, through to finishing at Bennelong Restaurant at approximately 3.30pm.
Please note: Menu items at each venue are subject to change depending on seasonality and availability. Vegetarian and non-alcoholic options are available.
