Great Seafood

This is one of my favourite restaurants. It's located at the end of Jones Bay wharf in a cool part of Sydney. The food was excellent but the atmosphere was the winner. indoor and outdoor options and a short walk to darling harbour or the casino.

For a special night out, you can't beat this specialty seafood restaurant. It has beautiful views of Pyrmont with the Harbour Bridge and city lights in the background. The Chef's Table menu is to die for! The Chefs personally come to your table and explain each degustation-style dish as they serve it to you - each course even more delicious... More

Had lunch at this seafood restaurant located in an old wharf on Sydney Harbour. As my elderly father was coming, a table downstairs was requested. This request was confirmed and we were surprised on arrival that lunch was only served upstairs. Fortunately there was a lift. Our party of 8 had three courses and every plate was empty when we...

We ate here with friends and I must say the restaurant was very accommodating when our afternoon activity ran way overtime. They changed our booking on a Saturday to 2 and a half hours later. Setting is great and so is the food. The scallops entree was perfectly cooked and full of interest whilst the fish main was perhaps the... More

We have dined here twice in the past 6 months. Having been here regularly over the years, we decided to try the degustation menu (for lunch). In hindsight, we regretted it. Many of the dishes are simply pared down versions of their larger brothers on the menu. Most were fantastic, some were misses (soured milk emulsion that still gives me... More

Had the service here been stepped up a bit, my review of the place would have been "Excellent." The appetizers, the entrees, the deserts, all Excellent. The service was only average. A beautiful location and the building design is cool too!

I celebrated my 40th birthday at Flying Fish with 30 of my closest friends and family. We had the Wine Room booked and a three course and canapés menu. It was fabulous. The food was brilliant and catered to dietary needs. The service was very good with the manager prompt responding to the only little issue that arose with service.... More

We had the Flying Fish set menu and it is a really good way to sample a large variety but well proportioned. The stand out dishes were the seared tuna with crunchy pork and grapefruit, and the amazing curry dahl sauce with the New Zealand Snapper perfectly cooked with crunchy skin and some prawn. Only thing is that next time... More
