Just before you reach the Sydney Opera House, you’ll notice a couple of small shedlike buildings with tables and chairs set up to take in the stunning views of the harbor and the Harbour Bridge. This is where you’ll find some of the best oysters in town. You’ll pay A$20 for a half-dozen oysters and A$34 for a dozen. Main courses, such as barbecued swordfish steak, pasta, or aged sirloin steak, are also on the menu. Share a dozen oysters and follow up with more shellfish or a seafood hotpot and a bottle of crisp white wine or sparkling champagne on a sunny day, and it’s a perfect lunchtime spot.
