Beautiful view, excellent food and spacious

I went here with my boss for a "farewell" lunch. We were seated upstairs at a window seat and the view was just beautiful over Sydney Harbour. The tables are set spaciously apart so there is minimal noise from other diners and you don't feel "crowded in" as at some other restaurants. It was... read more

The food here was excellent. It's at the pricey end but quality is high. Views are good. Spanish ham entree excellent. Trevalla mains also excellent with tasty and balanced combo of accompaniment for the fish. Cheese platter good. Wine list was extensive but a bit NSW biased. Service was good.

Interesting industrial decor in an original but transformed old watehouse. High ceilings and huge windows provide a wonderful view of the ferries and boats hurrying past on the Harbour. Tables laid with precision and style and sufficient space to feel private and so you can enjoy the view of the bridge and the city lights.  There are two levels -... More

This is a very expensive dinner that came highly recommended, but for us, it mostly missed the mark. Selections seemed over-worked and contrived rather than inventive. Quality was hit or miss around our table of eight. And for the price, basic quality standards just weren't there. We also encountered a cranky hostess that nearly had us walk out, but thankfully...

One of the many things I love about Sydney is the amazing restaurants, great fresh seafood and wonderful service. Flying Fish is right up there with the best in Sydney. The Sri Lankan Barramundi was delicious. Excellent place to impresse clients and incredible place to enjoy a leisurely dinner with friends. Highly recommended for business and pleasure.

The service was fine, not exceptional. The food was hit and miss one fish dry one perfect, my steak was below standard very small which is ok, if every bite is delicious, unfortunately I have had better steak on a steak sandwich. I would honestly say the men's restroom or dirty little box would be more appropriate, is quite possibly... More

we went here with a group of 10 to show off Sydney cuisine to some o/s friends. At this end of the market, quite frankly, you expect everything to be pretty amazing. The food was lovely and the atmosphere fab. But the service was a real let down. I booked months in advance, but received no confirmation call. So the... More
