Went here for lunch, girl at the front seating people needs a personality injection. Don't understand why restaurants put people like this as there first point of contact for customers. Waitress wasn't much better never asked how our food was, barely a thank you when we paid & left. Unfortunately bad service taints the whole experience .

Dinner. Valentines Day. Frantic staff. Over flowing with people. Seafood platter for 2 was average - more chips and lettuce stacked at the bottom to make it look bigger than it was. Presentation was great but that was it. Lovely location, but underwhelming food.

We went for Sunday brunch, however brunch wouldn't be their speciality. Their staff were good, doing the best they could. Food was nice, what you'd expect from a small cafe. Cost was that of a normal brunch so we were a little underwhelmed. Certainly seemed popular for dinner when we walked past the night before, will try for dinner if... More

Grab your boat buddy and book into Darling Harbour Mariner , best at night, and order from the Nicks Mariner Menu any of the hot and Cold scrumptious fresh Seafood Platters which they deliver to your Berth. Magic location and most weekend nights capped off with Fireworks!

We chose this restaurant due to its location. I went to the counter to ask about seating. I was greeted with a big long over exaggerated explanation about how rough their day had been and it would be at least 25 minutes wait on any food.. So we sat down, looked at the menu and proceeded to order a salmon... 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.
