Drawing inspiration from the healthy eating philosophy in chef/owner Michael Moore’s best selling cookbook series Blood Sugar, O Bar and Dining's menus blend fine dining with healthy influences from Michael’s personal experience as a diabetic.
I knew I was in good hands and had chosen the right venue for our corporate ‘Lunch n Learn’ function. On the day of the event, everything flowed effortlessly, creating a wonderful experience for our clients, with their feedback echoing this. The staff were incredibly accommodating, the food was delicious and our guests felt valued and looked after.

Only yesterday, kale was at the tip of everyone’s tongue, backed by medical professionals, nutritionists, naturopaths and alternative practitioners alike. However it feels like almost overnight, new “superfoods” are being thrust upon us mere mortals, with only a small handful truly worthy of that title. Enter hemp, the latest competitor in the race for the coveted crown of nature’s greatest remedy.
We’d say rightfully so, seeing as a single serving of hemp provides a nearly perfect balance of the essential fatty acids needed by the human body. Throw protein, fibre, iron, vitamin E and all of the essential amino acids in the mix and you achieve what is being hailed as the most nutritionally complete food source in the world. It comes as no surprise then that stars like Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and international model Alessandra Ambrosio swear by hemp and its numerous health benefits.
So if it’s such a beneficial food, then why has it taken this long for us to catch on?
In Australia, the sale of hemp food was only legalised in November 2017, even though worldwide it was already being used as a staple in many diets. Cultures throughout history have traditionally used hemp to treat ailments such as inflammation and chronic pain and aches. More notably, Chinese medicine has long included hemp to help treat a variety of conditions, including pain relief, gut disorders and anxiety.
The list of benefits doesn’t stop there, however. Hemp has also been hailed for its unique anti-ageing benefits, largely due to the omega fatty acids that are known to nourish and plump the skin whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and increasing moisture. Hemp is also known for its treatment of stress, anxiety and depression, with many consumers claiming it is the ultimate cure for their physiological conditions.
Nowadays, you can find hemp in protein powders, oils, cosmetic products, clothing and more.
While the health benefits are attractive enough, for real Sydney foodies, the mild, nutty zest paired with complementary elements creates a culinary experience like no other.
Degustation menu was sensational. Especially dry aged duck breast. Will come back.
Amazing views and even better food. Nice to see such a fresh and vibrant vegan menu as well.
Can’t think of a better restaurant to regularly go to and enjoy the views over some nice dinner other than O Bar and Dining.
A fabulous meal with great views and wine. Attentive wait staff and lively atmosphere. Will be back.
Best views on the city, great selection of bubbles and nibbles… just relax when the floor takes you around 360 degrees. Perfect for a drink on date night before dinner
Lovely location, excellent drink menu, very polite and helpful staff. The view of the city is stunning.
Fine dining indeed. Flawless service, divine view, and every morsel of clean, nuanced flavours was a delight.
Delicious food, million dollar views, very courteous and friendly staff, what’s not to like about this place? We dined here yesterday and we loved every minute of it. The ambience was just perfect and the food was amazing too. Will definitely return.
I recently took two VIP guests whilst hosting a tour. I guaranteed them killer views, outstanding cocktails and food plus warm and personable staff. You did not disappoint!! O Bar will definitely be a regular place to visit with all future tours. Thank you to Robertina & Julie for their kind assistance.
It was a beautiful and romantic night. All the staff were very friendly, thoughtful and considerate. For one night I was made to feel very very special and important. That is a priceless experience. Thank you so much.
