Nicks R, Manager at Nick's Seafood Restaurant, responded to this review

Dear Alfil0 Many factors are taken into consideration when pricing our Menus... You are correct in that our position is one of them. We are situated at the waterfront of Darling Harbour and that does come at a cost. We also factor in our high quality and fresh product. We source only the best seafood from suppliers.

A great place to watch all the goings on at Cockle Bay and Darling Harbour. We had both lunch and dinner here and everything was spot on. especially good are the scallops and the seafood chowder.

The location is hard to beat. We loved the Al-Fresco dining with the view on the harbour. The food is beyond reproach, and the wine list is comprehensive. Service was good as well

My daughter had given us a voucher to spend at any of Nick's restaurants, we picked Nicks itself and I made a booking for lunch yesterday (March 14). We were early, not a problem, taken straight to our table which was right at the front of the restaurant, my daughter was on time so we sat and had a drink.... More

I was on my holiday with my family to Sydney, and I was recommended to try seafood at this restaurant by the hotel staff and I was given a free dessert voucher. Overall, the food was great, but the service is terrible. The waiter served me kind of unfriendly, took me quite some time to refill a glass of water.... More
