The 20 best restaurants for business meetings in Sydney

Mosaic at the GPO’s Westin hotel.

Not every business meeting has to be dull.

If you’re tired of heading to the same old cafe or restaurant to catch up, here’s a great list of new places to try that have been tested and become favourites with Sydney’s business community.

Dimmi, the restaurant booking platform, recently released the winners of its 2016 People’s Choice Awards, which gathered 700,000 local diner reviews and ratings over the past year to rate the top 100 restaurants around the country.

This year, the winners of the business meetings category ranged from Mexican and Indian to modern Australian. Some were better suited for parties and groups, while others were known for their views and great wine lists.

According to Dimmi, the five most popular cuisines for business meetings were: steak, Italian, European, Asian and Japanese.

Here are the favourites in Sydney below.
