It's accessible by railway and walking distance from the station. The seafood is overrated. It's not really worth for a visit if you are solely wanted to hunt for cheap seafood. For the sashimi set I purchased is not impressed either.

This Fish Market is mainly indoors. It was a weekday and very crowded. We had no where to sit to eat, and we tried to find a spot for some time. There was seating outside as well and it was also very full, so we went to the nearby park with our fish and had our lunch there. There were... More

Fresh seafood and great variety! A must-visit when in Sydney, but be careful when dining outdoors! Birds prey on the sumptuous seafood of yours the moment you step out!

First trip to the Sydney Fish Market and it was what I expected it to be with a wide variety of seafood and we were spoilt for choices. It was however difficult to fine a place to sit over the weekend lunch hours but finally found one overlooking the wharf after about 30 minutes. Started off with a few bottles... More

We rode our bikes from Circular Quay to the Fish Markets, enjoyed the ride and on arrival we were so glad we did not have to try and park a car (the car park is limited in area and can become full of frustrated drivers) I recommend public transport - the light rail, bus or enjoyable walk, bike ride.

Pick your seafood, choose your menu and enjoy freshly cooked meals to your taste. The choices between open space or indoor dining with both offering unique dining experience. However, due to the crowd, you may find it difficult to even get a seat. Should money is not an issue, this is the best place to enjoy fresh seafood.
