Cafe and restaurant

At the Gallery, you can choose between the cafe with its outdoor terrace and the restaurant.


The restaurant is temporarily closed. It will reopen on 25 October 2014 as CHISWICK at the Gallery, a superb casual dining venue co-owned by Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan.

The contemporary dining room will feature a casual bar area with a large communal table and views overlooking Woolloomooloo and Sydney Harbour. Fresh produce will be at the heart of the menu, with an approach that continually evolves with the seasons, and an emphasis on where the food comes from and how it is grown.

CHISWICK at the Gallery will be open for lunch seven days a week, dinner on Wednesdays and brunch on weekends, and will be the perfect spot for a quick bite or a drink at the bar, a special celebration with friends or lunch before or after enjoying the Gallery exhibitions.
