Top 3 restaurants with the most spectacular views of Vivid 2019

Vivid Sydney attracts millions of visitors each year to check out the amazing light displays scattered all throughout Sydney.

As there are a fair amount of people all trying to see the same thing, it’s safe to say that crowds can be attracted to the lights.

However, with a bit of planning ahead, you’re able to beat the crowds and enjoy a lovely meal at the same time.

There are a few restaurants that have ideal views of the best spots of Sydney.

1. Aqua Dining, Milson’s Point

This restaurant boasts authentic Italian food and offers a gorgeous view right near the iconic Harbour Bridge. This places you in the ideal spot to see the lights hit the bridge instead of being amongst the crowds. This is perfect for those looking to experience a high-end Vivid dining experience.

2. Hacienda, Circular Quay

This restaurant offers breathtaking views and offers a bar menu full to the brim with flavoursome Latin American dishes. Some of the food you can get includes tuna ceviche and flathead tortilla. With dishes starting from $14, this is an ideal night out for those on a budget who still want to see the amazing lights Vivid has on offer.

3. ARIA, Circular Quay

This restaurant is for those who have a refined palette and a bit more to spend. It’s so close to the Sydney Opera House you can taste it, and it boasts a menu curated with celebrity chef Matt Moran’s finest. It also offers the best views of the Sydney Harbour to boot. What more could you want?

However, if the crowds don’t seem too bad, there’s some spectacular lights to see. With lights showing for three weeks from the 24th of May to the 15th of June, there’s plenty of time to see and enjoy the light show Sydney puts on every year.
