Altitude restaurant, Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney

Shangri-La viewOur Christmas and my birthday present from Chris & Freya was a surprise, we went with them on the evening ferry from Manly to Sydney, catching the sun setting over the city on the way; but we didn’t know what was in store for us.

Just a few hundred meters from Circular Quay is the Shangri-La Hotel with its Altitude Restaurant on the 36th floor.  This was our present!  A meal at a window-side table looking out over the Opera House and Bridge.

4 Starters, A choice of 3 main dishes followed by 2 deserts all accompanied by their respective wines.  Fantastic food and good service to go with the spectacular view.

What a night 🙂

Jack can't wait to eat her birthday treat

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK

Of course she had a special meal with just one candle, but she was a bit impatient to eat it, so the photo is a bit rushed and not posed 🙂
