Captain Cook Cruises has re-imagined cruising on Sydney Harbour with the launch of the new Harbour Bar & Restaurant from 25 September 2020. The company’s new vision includes relaxed dining options, a fabulous new bar with live music and pick-ups every 90 minutes.
The Harbour Bar & Restaurant is a hybrid of boat, waterfront cafe and relaxed bar, where you can escape to beautiful Sydney Harbour in a safe, fun environment.
According to Captain Cook Cruises General Manager, Anthony Haworth “The freedom to join the Harbour Bar & Restaurant at a time that suits our guests is a key element of the new 90-minute schedule. The number of guests on each bar and restaurant level is also carefully managed by the onboard Concierge, so they can sit back, relax and enjoy the experience.”
The Harbour Bar & Restaurant departs from a choice of two city locations – Circular Quay and King St Wharf. On entry you find yourself on the Harbour Bar deck – a fusion of Sydney’s famous rooftop bars, heritage pubs and wine bars, with the added dimension of amazing water-level views. Guests may choose to linger here, enjoying a bespoke cocktail in the comfy lounges, the live acoustic music and a tapas-style bar menu, before heading upstairs to the Harbour Restaurant.
Both the dining experience and the views go up another level at the Harbour Restaurant. You simply can’t get more waterfront than this. The setting is distinctively relaxed with a bistro-style menu featuring local produce prepared simply. The perfect spot for a quick lunch, a casual catch-up, or dinner with friends.
For seafood lovers, the fresh prawns, oysters, scallops and barramundi are a must and for carnivores the local eye fillet steak is hard to pass. Vegetarian, gluten free and kid friendly alternatives are also available.
Picks-ups every 90 to 120 minutes from 12 noon to 10:30pm, allow guests to board at a time of their choosing. Stay for one circuit of the Harbour or stay longer if you wish. The Concierge will happily find you a table at either the Bar or Restaurant, in any order you prefer.
The Harbour Bar & Restaurant is cashless with a smartphone ordering system and contactless check-in. The service is fast, friendly and every table offers amazing views.
Spacious outdoor areas are a feature of the Harbour Bar & Restaurant and include a 360-degree open star deck. Two private dining rooms, both with a private outdoor cocktail deck, are ideal for intimate family gatherings, or groups seeking a little more privacy.
If personalised service and an all-inclusive menu is more your style, the Premium Dining range includes a choice of High Tea, Lunch and Dinner options. When only the best will do, the Gold Penfolds Dinner Cruise will impress your guests from the moment you arrive to the last morsel of the divine six-course degustation menu.
Both the Harbour Bar and Harbour Restaurant includes your reserved table or lounge area, live music and approximately 90 minutes of relaxed cruising, with the option of staying longer if you wish.
The Harbour Restaurant includes your choice of main course from the bistro-style menu and is priced at $59 per adult, and $29 per child 4-15 years.
The Harbour Bar is priced at $29 per person and guests can purchase from the food, wine and cocktail menu onboard.
Premium Dining cruises are priced from $69 for High Tea, $79 for Lunch or $89 for dinner. Gold dining options start from $159 per person.
