I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

The Australian Museum has just reopened after a year of extensive renovations and the dining establishments have had a revamp as well. With 180 degree panoramic views across Hyde Park to Sydney Harbour and Woolloomooloo, No 1 William Street [Summer] is a special Sydney summer lunch destination for locals and visitors.

The menu has a selection of reasonably priced meals that are well-presented and cater can cater for those with special dietary requirements. The food by head chef Liz Mason can be classed as contemporary Australian and borrows flavours from the Middle East, Asia and Europe.

The grilled chicken breast salad with charred broccoli, olives and Parmesan was filling and full of flavour and the crispy duck and watermelon salad was refreshing. It was very tasty as the sweetness of the watermelon cut through the richness of the duck whilst the cashews provided a nice crunch.

Cocktails are a great price at $15 and there are some lovely wines for $8 a glass. The ricotta pannacotta with caramel espresso and almonds is not be missed, mind you the other desserts sound pretty good too and are very reasonably priced at $12 per serve. The dining experience is enhanced by linen tablecloths, silverware, native flower decorations and the happy, friendly staff. The coffee is top-notch and children are well catered for.
