海鮮很好吃,服務可以再改善!Good Seafood and services has room to improve, as most of people commented.

晚上八點半到還需要等位,幸好只是等了大概15分鐘。點了個Main Seafood Platter,價錢160塊澳幣,服務員建議加10塊把龍蝦分開煮,我們同意了,結果證明是很好的決定。海鮮拼盤保羅萬有,有生蠔,蟹,蝦,天婦羅炸大蝦,燒魷魚帶子等等。味道的確不錯,只是服務員的服務態度還可以再提高和改善!

I was in this restaurant yesterday evening : Hopefully the staff is very kind and very efficient... but managers are horrible. I ordered a seafood risotto : prawns and scallop frozen, no taste, no flavour : i will remember for a long time but not in the good sense. And after the crunch desert was supposed to have chocolate macaron,... More

So strolling down the promenade on Saturday early afternoon. The sun was hot and we hadn't eaten since early morning. Spied someone eating a very nice looking seafood platter and thought - That's us. Rocked up, asked for a table in the shade and a little breeze was a bonus. We got the cold seafood platter for 2, which is... More

Location hard to beat, but service lacking at best, not able to communicate in English at worst. Forgot to order the kids meal in the kitchen, so had to be reminded after 25 min. Food nothing spectacular , but okay considering the location. There is better seafood to be had in Sydney

I took my parents along to this restaurant for dinner on a Sunday. The restaurant had great views of the Harbour and the food was absolutely delicious. The only issue we had was that the staff were pretty slow at taking our orders and it took a while for the food and drink to arrive.

Well located restaurant, service was excellent, only comment I can make is the fish with the platter or seafood basket was of poor quality. Would like to suggest the restaurant uses better quality fish, which I note is available.

This popular restaurant was very busy when we visited but the service remained efficient and friendly. The food is excellent, made with very fresh ingredients in good quantities. Recommended.

Nicks is located right in the harbor with great views , with a real appeal when looking at the façade. The staff found us 2 a table at a minutes notice although it was very full in the outside section. You pay for the location, reputation and the ambience, but this is very much a slick operation to get as... More

We visited recently as a family function (19 people) and were absolutely disappointed that the level of service (not the waiter, he was fine) just was not there at all. We almost had to go look for a drinks waiter any time anyone wanted a drink (wine or beer) and a problem with one of the meals which took 1/2... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighborhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's. Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Australian National Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
