About No 35 Restaurant

“In a city where the signature restaurant view is of a cobbled laneway, No35 is a rare eyrie. Thirty-five floors up, No35's killer views make it a spectacular venue for a night above the town. The dining plays its part, too. In a sharp, pared-back modern space, the menu is contemporary but not rarefied, built around excellent regional and often organic produce. This is archetypal five-star hotel dining, excellent service and accomplished cuisine.” – The Age Good Food Guide
