A fantastic setting at Cockle Bay Wharf, Darling Harbour. We visited on a Saturday evening which gave us front row viewing for the fireworks which was an added bonus. Everything about this place is excellent. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The place was full to capacity but the food arrived piping hot and very fast. I had the... More

Excellent seafood restaurant, had the Hot Cold Seafood Platter at $160 plus a few drinks, Platter did not disappoint - surprised by the extra $10 Sunday surcharge - but wow what a way to finish of a Sunday afternoon at Darling Harbour, cheers.

We liked it so much we returned a few days later. Great menu and served by really friendly staff. Fantastic location for lunch or dinner with views of Darling Harbour. Not the cheapest in town but top food at a reasonable price.

Nick's Seafood is one of my favourite places to go. Their seafood platter is gorgeous. The food is always wonderfully fresh and beautifully prepared. It is expensive and I think prices have become higher due to the brand name gaining notoriety but if you want guaranteed good seafood, then Nick's is your place.

This restaurant is very overrated. Our grilled fish was overcooked and dry. For $49 I would have expected some sort of sauce at the least but it was literally served with a few chips and a slice of lemon. Very disappointing.

Dear Mandy_Mal85 Here at Nick's, we have always focused on simplicity in showcasing our seafood. We only buy the best quality from Sydney’s most reputable Seafood suppliers. In saying this, we don’t wish overwhelm the flavours of our signature product, and is why we offer either chips or salad on the side. Our grilled fish, excepting Barramundi because of its... More

It's at a great location, but have to say the food is only at the average level. But the service is very good and friendly.

Great location even though we couldn't really see the water from our table. Food was expensive, not that good and service was poor for the prices.
