Book in advance as hard to get sitting. Got an 8.45 and although arrived 30 mins early they accommodated us with a table pretty promptly. View great and food really good. Friends Birthday and as I had told them with no pre arrangement went above and beyond with a complimentary desert tasting platter. Can highly recommend.

My husband and I had dinner at this wonderful restaurant two nights ago. it was one of the best fish/seafood dining experiences we have ever had. The food was delicious, excellently prepared, and superbly presented. The tastes were fresh and inventively combined. Flávio, our server, was friendly, attentive, and very helpful. And the setting on Darling Harbor was scenic. Don't... More

We spent our last night with our family at this restaurant. It was a great evening with very good service and delicious food, truly interesting dishes and all tasted fabulous. Pyrmont is a great new developing area on the edge of the city.

I recently visited this restaurant for lunch with another couple. The greeting was rather disappointing as there was no one at the reception. Finally a wait person arrived and attended to us. The ambience was beautiful. The views superb. The staff were attentive if a little aloof. Perhaps even a tad condescending. The menu was in my opinion incomprehensive for... More

Excellent food, lovely location, not such a welcoming experience at reception on arrival (we had booked for lunch), service a little inattentive at times, but can highly recommend and we will be back.

While the food was good, it was NOT worth the prices. More troubling was the fact the waitress either didn't know what she was doing or was purposely ignoring us or has her priorities mixed up. My children (teenagers) were repeatedly catered to first as were other tables. Our food arrived quickly, but the servers clearly did not know who... More

I recently attended a work Christmas party at Flying Fish in Pyrmont for canapés and drinks. The food was delicate, super fresh, modern and delish. The variety of canapés was impressive. From memory, we ate scallops, oysters, king fish sashimi, lobster, salmon soup, duck, fried chicken skewers (OMG!) and chocolate cake. The location was also a winner. We were seated... More

Hi expectations simply not met. Starter was good, main was average. Service was slow and disorganized. Not at all worth the time nor money. In the future I'll look for other pier side restaurant experiences.
