Don't get me wrong, this place is crowded and you will end up sharing a table with strangers as it's a struggle to find a table. But it's well worth the hassle as the food not only looks fantastic but tastes great too. Tried the Half Lobster mornay ($22) and it was delicious and Grilled Whole Snapper with Chips ($17)... More

I've been there with overseas visitors and they loved the place and food! All of us put the place at the fist place for seafood lovers! There were too many people everywhere around, but nice seafood - highly recommend to visit for all overseas tourists!

This is a very busy place and annoyingly only takes cash, but the grilled platter we had was excellent. The fish was a bit overcooked but the bbq occys were amazing. All in all very good, not excellent, but worth the wait. We will eat here again.

I visited this restaurant with my family in January and found out the whole experience was a nightmare. The deep fried food was a disaster. The batter is soggy, and the seafood is tasteless. Oil was squeezed out by slightly pressing it with a fork. Cooking Basics: Please drain the excessive grease before serving it. 0 for customer service. They... More

We were here on a morning in our a week stay in Sydney to grab some fresh seafood (which we did). It was around 10am when we arrived and the place was crowded as it was just a few days leading to Christmas and many people were doing their last minute shopping and stocking of seafood. After walking around for... More

Fish market cafe provides you various kinds of dishes, that me, as a solo traveler was stoked and had such a hard time to choose for a single portion for me. Ended with a single plater option, that came with such a HUGE portion with decent price. So it was an awesome deal. The taste was quite awesome, the oyster... More

We have often eaten at the Sydney Fish Markets but on this occasion decided to sample the wares from a different outlet. We were not disappointed. After a drive of several hours it was delightful to pop in here for a late lunch outdoors by the water on a fine day. My partner chose a classic fish and chips, whilst... More

Some places just get things right, fish market cafe is one of them. Ok, some of their baked/grilled fish can be a little dry/overdone but stick with any of the deep/pan fried offerings, including the bbq'ed ones, you'll not go wrong. We always get their salt/pepper king prawns, bbq octupus, fried calamari, lobster tails 😁 nyum. They recently do sushi/sashimi... More

Varieties of seafood available. Price were reasonable. Limited tables in the cafe but plenty of tables outside the Fish Market, by the bay. We bought 2 boxes of mixed (grilled & fried) seafood for 2 and ended up having to packed some to bring back to our hotel. The place might get crowded during weekend.
