Cafe Opera & the Cortile

Style, history and location make these restaurants two of Sydney’s best.

Cafe Opera and the Cortile are located within one of Sydney’s most recognised hotels, InterContinental Sydney. Set in breathtaking 19th Century architecture, they both undoubtedly form the perfect venues for any occasion.

With an enviable location near the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour and CBD, Cafe Opera and the Cortile provide the perfect meeting place for a casual meeting, somewhere to refuel before more sightseeing or a place to entertain.

Cafe Opera and the Cortile serve up traditional and contemporary dishes with a focus on using seasonal and local produce.  Our chefs are relentless in their efforts to source the freshest ingredients.


Our Philosophy

Seasonally and locally sourced produce to deliver the freshest ingredients, encourage sustainability and provide guests with a unique and memorable dining experience.
