Cafe and restaurant

Renowned chef Matt Moran and his business partner Peter Sullivan from MorSul, together with Bruce Solomon of Solotel, are the Gallery’s restaurant, cafe and event food partners.

CHISWICK at the Gallery

A superb casual dining venue, this contemporary dining room on the Gallery’s ground level features a casual bar area with a large communal table and views overlooking Woolloomooloo and Sydney Harbour. Fresh produce is 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 is currently open for lunch seven days a week and dinner on Wednesdays. It’s 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.

Opening hours

12pm – 3.30pm Monday-Friday
12pm – 9pm Wednesday
12pm – 4pm Saturday-Sunday

In January 2016, open until 9pm Thursdays and Fridays as well.
