I thought this was crowded and overpriced. It's worth a visit and the fresh fish is very fresh, but $3 for a single shucked oyster made me feel like I was the bait being preyed upon. Queues were pretty long, too to get service. Ended up eating a really nice sashimi outside of the confines of the market.

I love living in Pyrmont and being able to walk to the Sydney Fish Markets. It is always busy and an amazing amount of variety and great value. My NZ friend calls it the Eighth Wonder of the World.

The array of fish available was astounding. Had never seen or heard of some of the species. Fresh? certainly, bright eyes on the fish everywhere. There just for a look as we are not able to cook in the apartment we are staying in. As a local this place must be a delight. Unfortunately the shellfish I could have been... More

Just hop in a cab and you are there! I've been to other fish markets in Seoul, Taiwan, etc, but this one is definitely the biggest and has the most varieties of seafood, good price too! We have 7 people, so some bought cooked seafood, some bought raw seafood and have them cooked to their like, some bought king crab... More

has not been going to fish market for yrs. Lots of new shops around. Lots of tourists and lots of ready to eat food - Hot and cold dishes, from luxury seafood to ready made sushi. The prices are right. Definitely don't miss out if you like seafood.

Must see place for the fishes, restaurants and whole atmosphere. We booked the morning tour which was a very well spent aud 35 - our guide shared an endless amount of knowledge about the market and fishes not to mention the time spent on the auction floor with hundreds of fresh fish boxes around. Don't be scared by the numbers... More

ATTENTION ALL SEAFOOD LOVERS! You MUST make this place a stop on your Sydney itinerary! (Or if you're a local, I'm sure you already know about this place - or probably even know of better joint). If I lived in Sydney, the majority of my salary would probably go here. I would be cooking seafood for every meal. (Or you... More

I visited the Sydney Fish Markets last Sunday and decided to have lunch at ANDROTIS SEAFOOD CAFE, located at the Sydney Fish Markets. As it was a cafe, I was not expecting a restaurant quality meal but was certainly expecting to receive fresh cooked edible food. We ordered the seafood platter for two costing $40 and I unfortunately have to... More
