The oysters were amazing! As was everything we tried. The views, even in the evening, are stunning, though Vivid Sydney was on at the time, so seeing the Bridge all lit up help. Can't wait to go back!!!

I love Flying Fish, and have been there multiple times. The space is lovely, nice and quiet at the end of the wharf. One of my most perfect days out lunching ever was at Flying Fish, followed by a water taxi to Opera Bar one beautiful summer's day. I went again recently, and the service was great again, but I...

I have eaten her a couple of times in the past month and both times it has been amazing. The service is very professional, polite and efficient. The food is sensational, the wine list extensive and the whole atmosphere is wonderful. Fresh food, amazing flavours without trying to be too clever or overdone in any way. Highly recommend to those... More

Was here yesterday for a business lunch. Given it was a Tuesday it was fairly quiet but as usual food was a very good standard. I had the calamari which was nice but very strong on the garlic. For main I had the blue eye which was terrific. Don't forget the hand cut chips, way better than the salad! Beautiful... More

I've lunched at Flying Fish on several occasions, and in all but one, the food has been excellent. The focus is always on the fresh, natural flavors of the sea, and letting the produce speak for itself. The only time I was less than happy with the meal was in a preset business lunch, which catered for the 'safe choice.'... More

We loved watching the activities in the port. Seeing tugs push a big tanker from the comfort of this amazing restaurant. I loved my toothfish and the service was excellent. Extensive wine list and a great location.

Had a great time at this restaurant recently. Lovely atmosphere, with the Harbour, Bridge and the City in front of us. Four of us experienced the degustation menu plus matching wines and really enjoyed it. Staff were attentive (apart from one guy who seemed to be a bit confused about where he was!). This is certainly an expensive night out... More
