The Botanist

The Botanist in Kirribili is a stunning restaurant displaying muted tones and leafy decor that's perfect for a work Christmas lunch in Sydney with a twist. Book a table in the main dining room for your group and delight in fresh, quality dishes like steak alongside crispy roast potatoes with garlic and rosemary.


Head to the heart of Surry Hills to dine at the airy and elegant Forrester's. Their festive spread makes a perfect Christmas lunch in Sydney for 2024. Indulge in a three-course meal including prawn cocktail to start, a classic roast with mini Yorkshire puddings for mains, then an Australian pavlova to finish.
