This is my favourite restaurant in Sydney The service is as it should be and the food is well presented and there is a good wine list This is a great place to have lunch or dinner overlooking the harbour.

You sometimes have to wonder about the odd bad review that you read here. Our experience was of a faultless meal, one of the best we have had anywhere. The food was simply stunning and the wine list interesting and full of great options. When you throw in a great view of the harbour on a beautiful summer's evening and... More

Attended a work Christmas dinner. Absolutely wonderful. Service was good. Not too intrusive but everything was attended too without you noticing. The entree and mains were very well balanced, surprising and unusual in some if the produce chosen. Dessert was amazing, and I am not a dessert person. There must have been 8-10 elements on the plate, each nice on... More

Went to the flying fish, hoping for an experience never to forget. Unfortunately this is not the experience I had. The food was average, well presented, but not overly amazing in terms of the flavour. The service was shocking. Not friendly and did not make an effort to communicate with our party. For the price, it was very dissapointing.

We had an 8pm dinner booking and were expecting great things based on a friend's recommendation. Were promptly shown to a window table but were then just left! We had to ask for menus and a drink after 10 minutes waiting. No vegetarian option on staters for my wife. Waiter was full of himself and couldn't understand why that was... More

“Boasting spectacular harbour views”, “Breathtaking Sydney Harbour Views”, “Waterfront” and “unquestionably stunning … looks out over breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour”… Really? Recently we made a booking for six at the Flying Fish for Saturday lunch, with almost 3 weeks’ notice. We advised the restaurant that we were bringing international visitors and requested a table with a nice view. The... More

I have visited Flying Fish numerous occasions, for different reasons, and have yet to be disappointed. It is a beautiful setting and if the weather allowed the outdoor seeing area is wonderful. The food is excellent and the staff has always been friendly and professions. Excellent choice of wines. Of course it is rather pricey, so best to visit on... More

My partner and I spent a week in Sydney in November and we decided to treat ourselves with some Australian fine dining. We chose for the Flying fish menu, which is their seafood tasting menu, with wine pairing. All the savory courses were extremely good and surprising, both in taste and texture. The wine pairings were very nicely done with... More

We went for the tasting menu at lunchtime, which turned out to be a 3 hour session - and rightfully so. The time between dishes was perfectly calculated, wines matched ideally to the dishes and the dishes themselves were simply divine. Not all seafood as you might suspect but a purely vegetarian and a wagyu beef course included as well... More
