Wow...great little restaurant. Definitely a place the local go to for casual dining. Highly recommend the stuffed Barramundi and the calamari.

Sad to say, the overall dining experience at Fish At the Rocks was bordering on poor to average. W ith so many other restaurants to dine at in a world class foodie town like Sydney, FATR could stand to pay attention to less than positive reviews.

Food is really good tasting and fresh but either the server or kitchen was not with it, so our appetizers came out really cold. Somewhere along the way there was a break down. Additionally, we were left waiting in between courses and for our check. We were a party of two and the dinner took 2.5 hours from start to finish for just an appetizer and main entree (snapper). We would have ordered dessert, but at this point we were anxious to leave. With prices being of higher value, there are other places that offer both fantastic tasting, properly prepared and hot food AND great service with similar pricing structure. Can you tell how disappointed I was and the negative impression as a takeaway?

This seems to be a local favorite which is always a great sign so perhaps we were an isolated incident.. The bottom front part of the restaurant is small with seating upstairs. Definitely book ahead if you decide to take your chances and have time to waste. Decor is very simple with no frills nor defining design theme, ambiance is set by the patrons.

Tip: They only order a limited amount of rock lobsters daily so if that is what your heart is set on, call and reserve it day before.

Wonderful menu, delicious food and fabulous service. Would have rated 5 stars if not so pricey! Nice restaurant within walking distance from our accommodation in the rocks.

Recommended by the the concierge at our hotel... not to be missed...To bad we don’t have time to go back for dinner!! We had a selection of their starters and everything was excellent. Excellent Service as well and a good wine by the glass selection

This is a small fish restaurant decorated simply without any clutter and extra fuss. The menu is small but also interesting. Food tasted great. Had oyster for starter that were exceptional. The presentation was good too. Had barramundi for main and it was very good. Service was not very attendant or particularly friendly but happy to overlook because the quality of the food was good.
