We've eaten here a few times and the staff have always been polite, competent and efficient. We've never made a reservation and have always been able to walk in at lunch or dinner. The seafood platter is fantastic and can feed three people. A great place to eat in Darling Harbour on a whim. If you want a view of... More

Just took our in-laws here for lunch and everything was terrific. Great views, large portions and really tasty food. Requested a front row seat on the water which we were given, however it was a little too warm for the "mum in law" staff could not have been more obliging in moving us to a cooler part of the restaurant....

If you're in Sydney you've got to go here, right on the darling harbour front, lovely atmosphere and the food was filling and delicious. I had the mussels to start with and they were HUGE, they were amazing and the fisherman's basket for main. Safe to say I wasn't snacking when I got home haha. Will be back next time... More

If you are looking for a quick meal, this is not the place to go. We went in for brunch one day, it wasnt busy at all, but took so long to get the food. When it did arrive it was very tasty though. We had omelette which was huge, it came with toast, and the pancakes which were very... More

Chicken so dry like cardboard and looked like toasted in a sandwich press. The attended submitted the order when I inquired. Only good thing was I got my money back.... More

As lovers of fresh well prepared seafood we enjoyed a three course meal which was outstanding for its quality. The oysters especially caught my attention for their size and the fact that they were freshly shucked. The calamari was tender and the bug sweet.

Ate here with a friend on a Saturday night in January. We happened to be walking past during the day and saw the menu. My friend being a massive seafood lover (and being from the country) wanted to give it a go for dinner. We arrived at 8, but decided we would go and have a drink elsewhere first and... 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.
