A few of my favorites are in Bondi.  North Bondi Italian Food is great.  Sean's Panaroma is a small space with a small menu, all fresh produce and a constantly changing menu. Icebergs Dining Room and Bar has incredible views and good food but is significantly more expensive.  If you're looking for low key Beach Burrito and The Bucket List are good.  Outside of Bondi Cafe Sydney is definitely a scene but they do have excellent food and views. Beppi's has fabulous classic Italian food.  To top it all off you need to visit Gelato Messina (there are a few locations). Oh and Redfern may seem a bit off the beaten path but they have some good brunch spots, I really liked Tapeo and Baffi & Mo Espresso - can't go wrong with a coffee and the pancakes with berry compote!

The best I believe is Cafe Sydney at the top of Customs House over looking the Harbour.( address is Alfred St Circular Quay )

Price is very good for where it is, a must try.

I have a few favourites.  Alfie & Hetty is the best restaurant and has a beautiful history.  5 minutes from Darling Harbour.  Cafe Sydneyis a great restaurant for views.  If you jump on a bus and head to Palm Beach you can make a day of it and start with a coffee at The Boathouse Palm Beach, climb up the Barrenjoey Lighthouse then head to Dunes Restaurant & Kiosk Palm Beach for lunch.  Take the bus back to Manly and have a sticky beak around and after a walk to Shelly Beach have dinner at Hugosbefore taking ferry back to city.  Catalina Restaurant is another favourite

Too many to choose from! Depends on what area you are staying in, and what budget you have, and what your style is really. Here's a few I love:

Clubhouse Rosebery - Great food and amazing cocktails

Mr. Wong - Stylish setting for delicious Cantonese food. Can be a bit pretentious, and a line up if you don't have a booking (only take bookings 6 or more) but worth the wait!

Yulli's - - Amazingly creative vegetarian food with Asian influence and some really nice drinks

Pizza E Birra - Personally my favourite pizza place. Great selection of wines

Da Mario - Another amazing pizza place in a lovely setting

Abdul’s Restaurant - Can't beat Abdul's for Lebanese!

Kensington Street - Love Spice Alley, and there is a Cellar Door (Handpicked Wines) where you can purchase a bottle of wine, and glasses if you need them, to go with your dinner

Chinese Noodle House - 8 Quay St, Haymarket NSW 2000. A tiny hole in the wall joint that makes hand made noodles and superb dumplings

Dove & Olive- - Decent pub food, nice atmosphere in upstairs area

The Glenmore Hotel - - Great pub food with a beautiful rooftop view over the harbour

Hey Valerie, I suppose it really does depend on price range and location. 

My go to restaurant at the moment is The Botanist in Kirribilli. Not too expensive shared plates and reasonably priced wine. They same guys now own 4 restaurants in and around Sydney. Their Potts Point Restaurant is also great and has great views.

As per other comments, if you are anywhere around Darlinghurst, Potts Point or Surry Hills skip dessert and head to Gelato Messina

For great coffee, breakfast and lunch place check out Room 10 in Potts Point.

The Sardine Room at Potts Point has an amazing seafood platter for only $70 or so, to share between two. The owner takes the time to sit with you and run you through the menu. Highly recommended!

You can't beat Opera Bar for a snack and a drink with THE best views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room in the city (near Wynyard Station) has $1 Oysters every Wednesday night between 6–7pm (and happy hour for drinks too between 5–7pm). They're regular menu is great too!

For tapas you can't go past Encasa Restaurant. A great place to eat before catching a show at the  Capitol Theatre.

Hope that helps!
