Take a water taxi ride from Wharf 4 to Darling Bay. Enjoy the Sydney harbour, taking plenty of pictures of the Opera house, the bridge, Balmain Yachts and the coastal line of Sydney. Then walk the jetty at darling bay, there is a Nicks a few meters from where the boat drops you, but i don't know if that is... More

Ordered giant prawns with green salad. 4 grilled prawns with small bowl of Greek style salad (mostly cos lettuce and no cucumber) for $42. Waiter agreed portion was small. Costs more than Cafe Sydney, not as good quality, and still hungry. Won't bother again.

If you want lots of choices for well cooked Seafood, then Nicks is your choice. It is priced slightly above your average cost but well worth the extra cost for its position in Darling Harbour and the excellent choice for Seafood. Great Meal guys, last week!

I have passed this restaurant many times and always wanted to try it and last night my boyfriend and I decided to give it a go. It looked like a fancy restaurant with scenic water views over the harbour and white neatly pressed tablecloths so I had high expectations. Unfortunately the food here was disappointing especially for the price we... More

Food average and quite pricey. Service slow and disjointed. Location good. Asked for water as all tables had a jug but ours never arrived.

I have always eaten at this restaurant whenever I am in Sydney as I love the location. My last visit was a little disappointing like a previous reviewer it was a last minute thing and we were offered a table for an hour with the promise of quick service. With two small children it was difficult to order quickly and... More

Although we didn't have a booked and it was a Saturday night we were accommodated but we're told they needed the table back within an hour. We were assured the service was fast. Clearly this would become evident but unfortunately the service was not accurate or friendly. We order garlic and herb bread but the meals came out before the... More
