I'm going to give this place the benefit of the doubt because the service was decent and I liked the location on the harbour. I didn't love my fried calamari and fries mostly because it was so much fried food-I should have gotten grilled fish. The kangaroo was well done even though my friend ordered medium - it was very...

My partner and I arranged for a catch up with her sister and her husband in January. After having done a 'mystery escape room' session (see separate posting) we ventured into Darling Harbour because it was a gorgeous day. After a short walk around we decided that fish was on the menu. We were met with a polite french sounding... More

Dinner Friday evening. Reception was warm and welcoming and that's it. Waiter unfriendly, rushed and not customer orientated. Main meal, an overpriced seafood platter was cold and fish was dry!! Only good thing was the wine. Typical tourist spot. Never again.

The location on Darling Harbour is great and I found the staff and service to as I would have expected from any restaurant. There is a limited wine selection by the glass but it wasn't a huge issue. We had the cold platter and I couldn't help think it tasted like the fish had been defrosted and wasn't fresh. The... More

We visited for a late lunch on a weekday. We were the only ones there, but service was lacking. We had the Paella and also fish and chips. Both dishes were satisfying, but not spectacular. Wine by the glass was extremely limited in selection. An advertised special of 15% off during the 3-5pm dining time was not applied to our... More

Had a great meal here! Decided to splash out for the grilled seafood platter and some oysters. Everything tastes fantastic and fresh. The cocktail of the day was also great. Would dine here again!

We left after having them. They were either frozen or just not fresh. Whatever they were they weren't particularly good. I think a good rule to follow is if it doesn't tell you where the oysters are from, don't buy them.

When we first went in here I was a bit worried because it didn't look that good inside. That soon changed after we had ordered and the food arrived. We ordered the giant seafood platter and it was fantastic. All the food was fresh and there was plenty of it. In addition we ordered the BBQ Alaskan Crab. The crab... 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.
