Went to Pancakes on the rocks for a quick dinner. The service was prompt, there was a small line, so had to wait a few minutes. I haven't been to Pancakes in years since I worked there over 20 years ago. Was pleasantly surprised, the meal was great and very filling. Price was approx $15 each for the meal. Didn't... More

We walked over to Cockle Bay from Central Business District in search of a place for early morning breakfast. Many of the eateries at the Harbour and at the Shopping Center were either closed or under construction. We ventured upon a second Pancakes on the Rocks at the end of the shopping center at the bottom of the Pyrmont Bridge.... More

Whilst in Sydney we ate breakfast here around 3 or 4 times. Great pancakes and the bacon is delicious. Plus you can also get a good cup of tea. Just what you need when about to start a day of sightseeing! Prices were also reasonable for Sydney.

I highly recommend Pancakes on the Rocks. My friend and I visited for breakfast and we had the Bananarama and the Strawberry Patch Pancakes. You get 3 very good size pancakes which were delicious. I had a huge amount of strawberries on my plate. We also ordered a hot chocolate and a cappuccino. I would have liked the drinks to... More

We visited twice for breakfast and loved it both times. Good size servings for the reasonable price. The wait staff were friendly and professional on both visits.

The staff were more interested in having a private conversation that serving customers. We were told to take the table in the corner as the waitress walked off. I saw one server walk to a table, throw the menu down then walk off without once acknowledging the customer because he was talking to another server. The food was bland. The... More

This one is a Sydney favourite and the line can be long. Its popular with visitors and locals alike. The pancake stacks are yummy and very filing and we had the beef ribs too. Probably one of the best I have ever had anywhere. Prices are about right and the service is quite good. Worth the wait

We lined up for only about 15 mins as the place was packed. We have a serve of pork and beef ribs- wonderful. The Devils Delight pancake was our dessert and it was Devine. Light, fluffy and tasty. So good.

Hard to find as you need to go in via the second road but what a fun place. the pancakes are delicious. I tried the fruit with the chocolate and this did not fail and usually i share but this was all for me! Would definitely take the taxi ride again !

Was looking for a place to eat on Darling Harbour at around 10pm on a Sunday that wouldn't break the bank. Looking at the menu, the pizzas looked very nice, and the descriptions suggested they were very gourmet. However, when they arrived they were clearly the cheapest supermarket pizzas that had been microwaved. They were soggy and tasteless. I had... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighbourhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
