Amazing Seafood!

We had the ten course degustation menu and would thoroughly recommend it! We've had multiple degustation menus prior and the food this time around was as good, it was the small matters that counted.

3 Girls on a girls weekend went for lunch. What a fantastic experience. We had cocktails outside & had a waterside table. The Cone Bay Barramundi was a taste sensation as was the Tuna entree. They got it all right - great friendly service and highly recommended for lunch in Sydney

Had quite a few meals here as I used to live around the corner. A bit hit and miss with the food and particularly the service. I expect impeccable service at restaurants of this standard and unfortunately this is the main reason I didn't rate it higher. Still worth a try.

We booked for 14 people and the degustation menu. The limit is usually 12 but the restaurant kindly extended the numbers as we were to be seated at 6pm, allowing time for the experience. The degustation was clever but flavours all worked well. The balance of flavours between dishes was also very well put together. Timing and spacing perfect. Wines... More

Flying Fish is definitely one of Sydney's best restaurants. Went as a party of 8, the service was brilliant and the food was unparalleled. I'd say my trevally was the best I've ever had. I honestly cannot think of a single criticism. A lovely night out. Did I mention the absolutely delicious food? Highly recommended.

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 difficult to choose from the menu... More

A special occasion made all the more memorable by our experience at the Flying Fish. The scallops were so perfect, my husband sighed. That in itself was worth waiting 20 years to see. We had the beef cheeks and loin and the barramundi for our mains which met all our expectations. The highlight of the night was desert. Mandarin Soufflé...... 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.
