Did see people with take away boxes. Sandwiches were reasonably priced especially by Sydney... read more

As a family we went to the city for a few days. We had dinner here on our second night and the meal was fantastic. The service was very professional and efficient. It wasn't too busy, however I have been here before when the restaurant was busy and even then the service was very good. We spent around $300:00 and... More

Ordered the lobster as main and wasn't disappointed, fresh and delicious, our scallops as entre was definitely fantastic. Compliments to the chef for the great food. We had 2 dessert vouchers so we ordered their chocolate fudge, that was really good, one of the best I've ever tasted. Great place to eat in Sydney.

My partner and I had dinner here and was greatly disappointed. The food lacked flavour and was greasy. A glorified fast food restaurant is a very apt description of this establishment. The atmosphere was a lot like eating in a school canteen. We regret not having read the reviews before booking here and believe we could've had a much nicer... More

Our favourite cafe in Sydney for breakfast and lunch. Great value, definitely the cheapest option in Darling Harbour. For breakfast, try the big breakfast or poached eggs on toast. For lunch, all burgers are great. Amazing Greek salad. Also yum cakes, drinks and coffee, although, it's worth going to the Lindt cafe next door if you feel like desert.

Did see people with take away boxes. Sandwiches were reasonably priced especially by Sydney standards. Would go there again.

This restaurant came highly recommended from my friends in Sydney and it certainly did not disappoint. They have a large variety of choices, and the food was delicious.

We were walking along the quay looking for a place for lunch and we spotted Nick's. We were able to get a table right on the water and experienced a nice, informal lunch. The menu has some seafood, sandwiches and salads. Everything we ordered was good. The service was fine. Nick's is a good casual place.

A very good meal, sat in the delightful and casual surroundings of Cockle Bay and Darling Harbour. Served well, presented nicely, and not too expensive considering the location. We arrived for a very late lunch (as we had flown in that morning) on a Sunday. After reviewing all the restaurants (visually, not on tripadvisor), we decided on seafood at Nicks.... More

The waiter was Italian and very very good. Are Italians and French people really good at this profession? Anyway as always food, service and ambiance was up to standard. Things just go smoothly. The whiting was to die for, the desserts were obscenely good and the wine list should suit anybody. I don't care what you like, we like this... More
