Expensive Restaurants. (Get out the Platinum Card.)
The inner city of Sydney offers plenty of choices for fine dining. Select from restaurants situated right on the world famous Sydney Harbour, or opt for a restaurant housed in a building featuring the rustic, sand stone colonial architecture. The Rocks is an area located right in the middle of Sydney City itself. This is a meeting place where the Harbour and old character buildings adjoin each other. Totally impossible to select just the one restaurant from this location.
Circular Quay is another ideal area to have dinner in Sydney. There is plenty of public transport and you are right on Sydney Harbour. We liked the Oyster Bar due to its helpful staff, fantastic views, and diverse menu. Why not take a ferry ride after your meal to finish off the perfect first date? Bistro Lulu in the inner city Eastern suburb of Paddington offers an intimate ambiance and a fantastic French menu. If you want to blow your date away with a superb vista over the entire city of Sydney, then Forty One Restaurant is the venue for you. This restaurant is open for dinner Monday to Saturday and is located in the Chifley Tower in the centre of Sydney city.
Cheap and Cheerful. (You won’t need an overdraft.)
Sydney is famous for its plethora of cheap and cheerful eateries. These are perfect for the financially challenged, and for those who don’t necessarily want to make their date uncomfortable by throwing the cash around on the first date. If you are going the cheap and cheerful alternative we recommend selecting a restaurant with plenty of character.
Radio Cairo definitely fits the bill with its ambiance and fantastic food. The menu for this eatery in Cremorne is based, not surprisingly, on North African cuisine. This restaurant gets a big tick for character and tasty food at an affordable price. Its location means that after your meal you can cross the road and catch a movie at the Orpheum, the only remaining Art Deco Cinema in Sydney. You can even grab a coffee or drink in this celebration of past architecture.
The Wet Paint Cafe in Bronte Beach, the eastern suburbs of Sydney also gets a big tick. This eatery features affordable Cajun style food with a touch of romance in the candlelit surrounds. One word, try and book a table for the front as the back of the cafe is a bit space challenged. Oscar’s near Darling Harbour is another great location as they have comfortable lounges you can settle back in with your date after your meal. This bar/restaurant/pub offers mid week specials with the bubbly and lobster being a steal.

I think it’s time to be honest about this. I had an idea for an epic morning date/adventure with this young lady. This place overlooks a good bit of the Columbia River Gorge, and I just knew it would be amazing up there no matter what happened. To be sure, I brought bacon, eggs, orange juice and coffee and we did our best to make it to the top right about when the sun was rising. I have this terrible habit of blindly throwing myself wholeheartedly into fresh romance, and have generally had little concept of what my actions must feel like to the women I’ve dated. Essentially, this particular morning prompted the lady pictured to tell me she was falling in love with me. I think we’d been dating for less than a month. I always have felt obligated to say that back to someone when they say it to me, probably a holdover from my militant parents. She later convinced me to let her move to Boston, MA with me as I had decided to pursue a career in architecture to rescue myself from corporate job hell. I begrudgingly obliged despite the burgeoning sea of red flags emblazoned underneath my eyelids, and the denial I was in about my entire future caused the relationship to quickly fizzle out and she now dreads seeing me at all. This is not an uncommon story for me.
