Ok. So the MCA Cafe has seriously good views, fronting right onto Sydney Harbour and across to Circular Quay and the Sydney Opera House. Sitting here you know you're in Sydney. You will be surrounded by businessmen and old money-types, but it's well worth stopping off here if you are feeling footsore. Conveniently, it is located in the same building as the excellent Museum of Contemporary Art, which has revolving exhibitions. The MCA café is run by local celebrity chef Neil Perry (he does the in-flight food for Qantas – what more do you need to know?).The MCA Cafe primarily serves seafood dishes of various sorts, but does venture into risottos, pastas, and Mediterranean cuisine. If you are sitting on the terrace it seems most appropriate to be dining on tuna steak or spaghetti and clams.
