Summit, Australia Square, Sydney

Summit, Australia Square, Sydney
Friday 2 December, 2005

Catching the lifts from the Australia Square foyer up 47 floors to the Summit you are distracted by the 3 screens with the latest news headlines. Today, the major headline was Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are engaged.

Arriving on the 47th floor you are welcomed at reception by several staff all dressed in black. The stark white decor is minimalist, probably not to detract from the sensational views. It is 360 degrees of Sydney and it is stunning.

We were offered an arrival cocktail called 'Sydney cider passionista' that was a blend of mint, lime, sparkling apple cider and passionfruit. It was tangy. On seating we were presented with an appetiser of seared yellow fin tuna on a bed of baby cress - it was pleasant but was served on a chinese soup spoon i.e. too large to place in your mouth, so a challenge to eat.

The major downfall of the Summit is the service - there is none. The staff, whilst there appears to be plenty of them, are less than impressive. Our table was continually asking for drinks that took forever to arrive and the food was bought out at different times, so some had finished their main meals before the others even started.

For entree I enjoyed the salmon trout mascapone, tiny capers, baby cress and pressed orange oil and for main the roast beef roasted angus rib eye, roasted garlic potato, horseradish and shiraz glaze. It was all pleasant and there is so much potential - it is one of the best locations in Sydney however the service lets the entire experience down.
