We loved our night out at Sake at the Rocks. We had the 7 course omakase and each course just got better and better. Great atmosphere and friendly and attentive service. Yes, the prices are high but you can see the value in the food...More

Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening at Saké restaurant. The restaurant looks great and the vibe on a Thursday evening was happy and loud with a mostly well healed after work crowd. Our waiter brought us a series of delicious dishes accompanied by a terrific Australian...More

Honestly do yourself a favour and just go. I have been a number of times and it is always good. Only issue is some of my favourites I had last time were not on the menu.

Amazing drinks. Amazing food. Service is LESS than standard! Upsetting that an amazing place has been let down by it's staff. Took 20 mins to bring a bottle wine but 45 seconds to bring the bill - typical!

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
