Pier One Sydney Harbour restaurant The Gantry has reopened to the public after five months of essential heritage restoration work.

Showcasing a new look and menu, The Gantry aims to deliver a premium restaurant experience on the Sydney Harbour waterfront.

The restaurant features a revamped dining room, with spaces for groups and couples alike. The new Chef’s Bar – once a working island in the kitchen – sits under an Abacus chandelier, and the open kitchen allows guests to watch the chefs in action.

The restaurant has partnered with local suppliers to hero NSW produce on the menu, with a strong focus on seafood.

“The Gantry encapsulates everything we love about the Australian lifestyle, celebrating the diversity of our unique produce and culinary culture,” said Head Chef Rhys Connell.

“We envisage guests feeling at home, relaxing into our incredible location right on the waterfront, immersed in the stories of local producers, while enjoying the finest dishes and wine pairings. We aim to offer guests the complete experience, going beyond simply food and wine, which is reflected in the interiors, the incredible setting, and the service.”

New sommelier Ahmad Fahda will introduce wines from boutique wineries from the Hunter Valley, Mudgee and Orange.

New Restaurant Manager Sabrina Botter, who has worked at some of Sydney’s finest restaurants, including Sokyo, Nobu and Bentley, will lead the restaurant service.
