I was highly impressed by the quality of the meals at Blue Fish. Not so much with the service. My friend and I arrived on a Sunday evening & both ordered the swordfish; it was immaculately cooked. The dish is very highly recommended. We ordered waffles & a chocolate soufflé for dessert. Be prepared for massive servings - the waffles... More

It is a shame to see in this day and age that a laid back customer is treated as an "easy out" as opposed to having a great service recovery procedure. when i recently dined at this restaurant, while no fault of the restaurant, high winds picked up through the harbour, causing one of the outdoor umbrellas to collapse onto...

One of our favorite restaurants. Great atmosphere as it is in Cockle Bay at Darling Harbour. The fisherman’s basket was excellent. Our favorite was the large octopus entrée (appetizer), and if you like fried calamari, this is a good choice. Okay, the octopus is officially the best plate of food we had in Australia.

I dont very often have something negative to say about service but I felt when i dined the waitress really didn't want to be there and didn't care if anyone knew that! One of the few times I've never left a tip! Food came out quickly, starter was lovely but the main (I went for the paella) was a little... More

We went there to celebrate my son Holy Communion and Confirmation with family and friends. Very good service and tasty fresh food. A bit disappointed with the alcohol and wines prices that are more expensive compared with other restaurants in the same area. They do not offer any deals on expensive set menus.

Fantastic place to eat. The food was wonderful and the service from Nadir our waiter was top notch. We had a family lunch for our daughters birthday and all 6 meals were great. Highly recommend Blue Fish restaurant.

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.
