It was a good place to visit for a seafood lovers. It has a strategic place beside the harbour. Unfortunately, the meals are quite pricy where the majority of people were tourists. One or two times per year would be an adequate visit.

Too busy...the tables were occupied by tourists(group)...had to wait for more than 30mins for a small table to share with the others. The food was overpriced and cooked robster tail was very dry like beef jerky. If anyone wants... More

Use your Opal card and the light rail to the Fish Market stop. A short walk gets you to fish lovers heaven. If it came from local waters, you'll find it here. My personal favorite is Doyles, where you can commit gastrocide for less than AU$20. But there are many other options, so snoop around before you make a final... More

I've been here a number of times over the last 10 years. This last visit was very disappointing to say the least. The first sign was we could actually get a picnic bench & lots of spare tables, no table storking! Next was the bus loads of Japanese & Chinese tourists arriving. All the platters have gone up in price... More

We decided to go there for lunch and we were not disappointed. We had a massive seafood feast for 70 dollars between two of us. Octopus, calamari, squid, sunfish, prawns were all delectable.

What a dump. Hordes of noisy Chinese tourists pushing and shoving. The food is way over-rated, and pricey. You don't get any Sydney people giving this disgraceful place a good review. Give it a miss.

I LOVED the Sydney fish market. If you love seafood, you have to come here. This place is paradise for seafood lovers! I was amazed by the variety of seafood I saw here and how fresh everything was. The market is mainly in one big building with several different vendors inside. There are tables both inside the building and outside... More

You could get varieties of fresh seafood at Sydney Fish Market with reasonable price. If you are sashimi lover, this would be a great place to visit.
