Sydney is a really nice place to visit but the restaurants do not seem to have realised that there is a food group other than protein. It seems as if every menu item would be applicable in the Atkins diet because there are no veggies and few carbohydrates. Having said that, we had the seafood platter for 2 at Nicks,... More

Massive seafood platter, incredibly friendly service. They gave our two year old little treats. Great European feel and atmosphere. This will be my regular whenever in Sydney. Not to be missed

The seafood platter for 2 is the best we have ever had, the selection of seafood is exceptional and the service is second to none. We love this restaurant. The views are stunning and it is so close to everything for a great night out.

A fantastic setting at Cockle Bay Wharf, Darling Harbour. We visited on a Saturday evening which gave us front row viewing for the fireworks which was an added bonus. Everything about this place is excellent. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The place was full to capacity but the food arrived piping hot and very fast. I had the... More

Excellent seafood restaurant, had the Hot Cold Seafood Platter at $160 plus a few drinks, Platter did not disappoint - surprised by the extra $10 Sunday surcharge - but wow what a way to finish of a Sunday afternoon at Darling Harbour, cheers.

We liked it so much we returned a few days later. Great menu and served by really friendly staff. Fantastic location for lunch or dinner with views of Darling Harbour. Not the cheapest in town but top food at a reasonable price.

We came here for lunch and we were not disappointed, the seafood platter was just lovely, we can hardly finish everything but we gave it a good go at it. The service was fantastic, we can not complain, the atmosphere was excellent. The Australians must be enjoying a healthy economy according to a full house capacity that day. We enjoyed... More

Nick's Seafood is one of my favourite places to go. Their seafood platter is gorgeous. The food is always wonderfully fresh and beautifully prepared. It is expensive and I think prices have become higher due to the brand name gaining notoriety but if you want guaranteed good seafood, then Nick's is your place.

This restaurant is very overrated. Our grilled fish was overcooked and dry. For $49 I would have expected some sort of sauce at the least but it was literally served with a few chips and a slice of lemon. Very disappointing.

Dear Mandy_Mal85 Here at Nick's, we have always focused on simplicity in showcasing our seafood. We only buy the best quality from Sydney’s most reputable Seafood suppliers. In saying this, we don’t wish overwhelm the flavours of our signature product, and is why we offer either chips or salad on the side. Our grilled fish, excepting Barramundi because of its... More
