I have been there a month ago, with my boyfriend. We tried various entrees, as I love share different things and try different dishes when I go out. A must to try are the oyster with a good martini cocktail on the side before to start your meal! The trout was great and the tuna (signature dish) was really nice,... More

Sunday lunch, oysters 30 min wait only one other table in the restaurant. Fish main took a further 50 mins to arrive. The tasting plate of desert was closer to a garden centre than anything. Very disappointed not to be repeated

Dined here with a group of girlfriends and they have an inviting atmosphere with a peaceful view of Sydney. I must say that their entrées were the best part of the dinner as we ordered every single dish and the flavours were so gorgeous. Their cocktails are definitely a must try. However I do think their mains and desserts were... More

The bar menu is superb value - same kitchen, same superb food and significant value. Try the Popcorn Prawns, Fresh Oysters, Brisket Sandwich...all sublime. The Crispy Prawn Bun was a bit doughy though. Superb Sashimi and a fabulous, reasonable wine list and excellent sommelier http://flyingfish.com.au/menu

Attended a "freestyle" dinner here on August 31. As part of the restaurant's 10th anniversary celebrations, this event was designed for the chefs to cook whatever they wanted - there was no menu and diners at the same table would all get completely different dishes. All the food was exceptional and with 10 courses for $100 was amazing value.

Whilst my husband had dined here before, it was my first time and it was just perfect. We had a lovely table by the window and found the staff very engaging and attentive. We enjoyed a totally unrushed lunch staying there for several hours. My husband had the rack of lamb and I had the Murray River cod and both... More

We were lost walking to the restaurant but a lovely staff member found us and escorted us to the restaurant. The food was incredible. The oysters and seafood were very good and my husband's rack of lamb was beautiful. Great spot with great view and great service!

We've dined at a few of Sydney's harbourside restaurants over the years and most are pretty good but this place is sensational! The setting is great, up a cobbled wharf to a beautiful view. The staff are friendly, polite, thoughtful and knowledgeable. The restaurant is smart but not pretentious. The food was beautifully presented and tasted sublime and the suggestions... More

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!!!
