The service in this place was friendly and attentive. The owner made us try his specially concocted cocktail which we really loved! The food is fresh and fantastic!

Having been to the Blue Fish a number of times over the years, since moving to Australia from the UK, my wife and I decided to take my mum and dad there to celebrate my mums 70th birthday on their visit to Sydney. Upon arrival we could not have had a better reception, all the staff were so friendly and... More

When you stop at one of the Darling Harbour restaurants, you do so for the view and hope the food will be good. It is indeed at this one, especially the lemon sole. Good choice.

I had read mixed reviews of Blue Fish, but decided to give it a go. Bad mistake!! It was packed with tourists and charged high prices for mediocre food. The position is very nice in the harbour, but that was the only positive. The staff were grumpy and not particularly helpful and the food was very much like fast food.

Absolutely amazing food with a fab location to match. A real food highlight of our stay in Sydney. Brilliant end to an evening. Menus are also available on their website.

Visited on a Saturday night so was quite busy, and unfortunately left very underwhelmed by the level of service. One of our party had an issue with their meal, wishing for it to be cooked a little bit more - the manager informed us that it was not possible and we should select something else. He pointed out 2 or... More

This restaurant is near the Darling Harbour so the view is good. However, service is bad because our seafood platter has arrived and our wine has not been served. Not to mention our water. Price is not cheap at all.

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.
