The quantity of different fish and quality of the fish is just mind blowing and certainly is worth visiting. There are so many different foods available it really is quite hard to make up ones mind but the dish that should not be missed is the soft shelled crabs and a one fifty lashes beer.

One of the most amazing places I have ever been - I like it better than the fish market in Tokyo! Ordering planks of sushi grade fish by the pound - then they slice it up and put it on a plate with wasabi and soy!!

And outdoor seating is awesome by the sea, only irksome thing is the seagulls may just fly around and steal your food. Apart from that, Enjoy the awesome fresh oysters, Freshly... More

Went to the fish markets on a Monday. Perfect time to go not too crowded. A variety of seafood vendors to choose from. We had a two person lobster seafood platter that was absolutely delicious and enjoyed it by the waters edge. Looking forward to my next lunch visit

We went for a look, and once we fought through the car park and got a park, we fought the crowd and went inside. First thought "It doesn't stink in here!" Many fresh fish outlets, cafes and also a cheese shop and some fruit n veg. We really enjoyed looking at the array of seafood, the displays and people watching.... More

If you're a seafood lover, this is a must-go place in Sydney. It has one of the best fresh tuna and salmon, oysters and scallops, as well as live lobsters, king crabs. It's a really enjoyable lunch for me and my family.
