Worst seafood in Sydney. Over priced rubbish. Don't bother eating at Nick's Seafood Restaurant there are plenty of better restaurants close by.

We had a Fishermans Basket and it was fantastic although we were unable to eat all the chips because of the amount of seafood in the dish. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. Would definitely recommend the restaurant.

I was so disappointed in my meal here. I paid a ridiculous amount of money for a piece of barramundi, cooked to death, on a plate. No presentation, no lovely vegetables or anything. I felt it was very geared to the tourist market so I hope people don't leave thinking this is what Australian Fine Dining looks like.

We ordered mixed seafood, all the pieces was so fresh and tasty. The dressing of the plate was charming. Service people was friendly and smiling like other Australians on the street. Even you are sad there is always something to make you smile at the Darling Harbor especially durıng the sunset. Thanks for the delicious food and friendly approach to... More

Great steaks but they were served on a cold dish and as such the whole meal was cold within minutes.

This is the 3rd time I've been to this restaurant & I must say I was disappointed in the service. When we were seated the waiter didn't come near us for at least 10minutes, there was no offered any drinks prior to that. When he did take our order the food was served within about 5minutes. You were no way... More

Friday night Darling Harbour what better than to be sitting in a good seafood restaurant close to the action. The rock oysters were a great starter followed by the the baby squid, with chips. The squid was a little on the chewy side but tasty. They then threw in a dessert at no additional cost and the fruit salad with... More

Probably a good idea if the chef was to leave and start up elsewhere, as I don't believe this place will ever get its act together on the service. Set a record first for me - I've never waited more than two hours for a meal in my lifetime. It quickly became a joke - every time we complained, they... More

Dear WalkersWA We apologise for the below standard experience you had with us. This kind of service is not usual here and your comments are valued. It was obviously an extremely busy service, but this is no excuse for us failing to deliver. We do hope you return.
