I have been to a few functions here and the finger food was so good I had to try out the degustation and OMG was i not disappointed. 2 days later I can still describe the seared crusted tuna and even little details like the way they deep fry the quinoa, or the little mussel balls for entree. They did... More

What a great place! Beautiful location, lovely views, excellent wine and the food, world class!! We had oysters to share, followed by 3 courses and left feeling incredibly full but delighted! The seafood was superb but those who ordered beef or duck were equally pleased.

I visited the Flying Fish for lunch after a year and was pleased that the standard of food and service still remain as good as they were. Beautifully presented, delicious fish dishes, great wine list, wonderful ambience and perfect service.

Stephan our waiter worked tirelessly to make this lunch a memorable one. The crab from Northern Territory was a big hit as was the scallops, tuna, Harupa etc etc etc All topped off with beautiful wines, especially the two bottles of Chateau d'Yquem at the end. Day was finished by a taxi limo on the harbour back to Rushcutters Bay.... More

I ,together with family, attended Flying Fish last night and had the degustation menu. How wonderful was it!!!!(except for the duck which was a bit tough).Wow, the smell and taste of every dish was out of this world. The service was great as each dish was fully explained to us when presented at our table. The staff very friendly and... More

Looking forward to a celebratory lunch for our 31st wedding anniversary today - shame we chose Flying Fish! Food was average - Entree boring and no flavour, Main - both (duck and John Dory) were overcooked, tough and had no flavour. Wait staff left a lot to be desired - when asked if I enjoyed my mail meal (duck), I... More

Have been before, and had a fantastic time/meal. Went this week. Menu was lacking, and beef so overcooked. Definitely try the scallops for entree - they were fantastic. Rest - below average. There was a function upstairs (check next time) and the guy had a microphone - drowning out any conversations downstairs. Not nice serenity listening to the sales awards!... More

Came to Sydney for a birthday celebration and saw ad in Lonely Planet. After checking with hotel staff at 1888 if it lived up to expectations we booked. Yum yum! We had the steak platter to share. Amazing meat and homemade chips. My only fault was the salad didnt need the garlic which detracted a bit from the fab meat... More

Dinner with friends on a Saturday night. Pleasant beer outside waiting for others to arrive. Nice restaurant design. Salad entree pathetic (should be removed from menu). Waited an age for mains but very impressive when they arrived, especially John Dory in broth. Very expensive overall and obviously needs improvement.

This was our first visit to Flying Fish in quite a few years and overall it was excellent. The restaurant is situated at the very end of one of the old wharves in Pyrmont, and there are excellent views across the harbour to the Bridge and North Sydney. The restaurant is very intimate and chic with high end fixtures and... More
