Our Circular Quay Restaurant
Serving Guests for over 30 years.

The City Extra concept was developed in 1984 around what we believed the Public wanted, not what we wanted to serve them. People asked to be able to eat at any time from the full menu, so we went to 24 hour trading and made every menu item available at any time of the day or night. This suited the far more complex life style of Sydneysiders – shift workers, hospital employees, night club staff, students, opera goers, office workers and so on.  With our iconic newsprint menu's, tables and staff uniforms our Circular Quay restaurant is not to be missed.
