I was treated to this amazing restaurant by friends on my recent visit to Sydney as it was their favourite restaurant. The location is stunning looking over to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Lovely walk along the pier to get to the restaurant which was an added feature for me. The staff was simply outstanding and the food exquisite. I prefer... More

Went for dinner last night, have been to this restaurant a couple of times before, the food is always amazing but last night the service was pretty bad (waited aaaaages when we first got there to be asked if we wanted a drink, and then all night the waitress's manner was very brusque, not at all friendly...) hence my three...

Flying Fish is a very good restaurant in a great seafood location. Our shared first course was amazing and our mains were equally as good. My friend chose the wines, and both bottles were excellent. And of course no meal is complete with a dessert, so we shared one. The staff are very good and attentive. The ambience is great-... More

Between the four of us we had the crab, bugs, oysters and many more delicious plates, each one was terrific. The expresso martinis and wine selection also great.

The food at Flying Fish is always good though sometimes we have had better dining experiences than other times. The service is second to none and the atmosphere rustic but elegant.

Awesome night at Flying Fish Restaurant ! At the end of Jones Bay Wharf, it offers 180C water and Harbour Bridge views. Warm greetings at the door, great service and food. We had the kingfish and vanilla cured trout, then the moretton bay bugs, john dory and snapper. Faultless. Dessert were great too. Service was very informative and friendly. We... More

This was my second visit to the Flying Fish and again it was an amazing experience. From the minute we walked through the door and were created by the enigmatic manager, Daniel till the moment we left the service was incredible. The staff were so attentive & could not do enough for my fiancé & I. As for the food;... More

At one point, this was supposedly great. But the founding chef is gone and it has been bought, I was told, by a private equity group. Seafood was seriously overcooked the two nights I ate there. Beyond that, the food quality I would rate as only average. The location is nice and the facilities are lovely. They need to fix... More

Not much to critique. Fresh, beautifully presented dishes. Initially when we first got shown to our seats they only gave us the drinks menu which was a little annoying since we couldn't decide what drinks to choose because we didn't know what food we were having. However, after this the service picked up. Harbour views from our table. Overall, a... More

We had an OK experience here but my fish (barramundi) was not very flavorful. My husband's John Dory was good but we ordered a side of green beans and we ended up getting them much after our main course. They didn't charge us for them so that was good but the service could have been better. For us it didn't... More
