Cafe del Mar, Sydney

Treehouse Hotel, North Sydney

Celebrating a friend’s milestone 25th birthday, we decided to go with somewhere classy but still friendly for a crowd. So we ended up at Treehouse on a Saturday night to find a wide variety of diners enjoying a meal, in contrast to the usual office worker crowd on weekdays.
