MORE ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCEIn what was once home to Potts Point institution Bayswater Brasserie and the chef-hatted Ortolan, Crane have fused traditional Japanese style with an edgy modern sophistication. Crane's urban, sophisticated take on Japanese style is not without its personality and quirks. The space includes a bar, atrium, outdoor courtyard and front terrace, complete with vintage Eames chairs, retro benches, oh and astroturf - hooray! So whether you’re after somewhere to wine, dine or kick back, Crane have got it covered.
With Chef Taichi Ito in the kitchen, and talented mixologists behind the bar, it's also a stand-out for fantastic Asian cuisine, and delicious cocktails. You'll have both, with this curated experience only available for Lime&Tonic members.
Forget the traditional high tea. Do something a little more exotic, with our Sashimi & Sake High Tea.

These will be complimented with a sweet sake cocktail served in eclectic fusion-style teapots. These two favourites of Japanese dining make the perfect light meal to share, or the start to an even bigger feast at this gem of Asian restaurants in Sydney. You'll be so delighted you might want to make a night of it!
