Head downstairs and you'll find the "cellar" – a dining area that includes a tiled portion on the wharf itself. Upstairs is a little more plush; a spacious hall with a gorgeous, panoramic view of Darling Harbour.
Chefs Jeff Schroeter and David Murphy painstakingly put together two menus (Kitchen and Cellar have different menus). Each menu lists a little more than twelve dishes, plus daily seasonal produce specials, from lightest to richest. You and your companions choose the desired number of dishes to try, and these dishes will then be distributed as individual portions for everyone. Customers generally choose between three to six dishes. It's an intelligent, communal fine-dining system that can only be found here at Eleven.
The restaurant setting sits somewhere between classy and casual, so whether you're planning for a business or leisure treat, choosing this place can never go wrong. Staff are friendly and have superb knowledge of their wines and cocktails.
Eleven's style is more European (French) in tradition but subtly reveals some Japanese flavours to spruce up their dishes. Their interesting menus and fine-dining system has also won the attention of the Sydney Morning Herald, so don't miss out on this dining experience at Eleven. And if you do visit, remember to try out their famous Kingfish Carpaccio and the Alaskan Snow Crab.
