Average taste.

My family and I had lunch at this restaurant when visiting Sydney Fish Market. We ordered a crab, and had it cooked in a 'garlic butter' way, and we also added noodles. The crab was very fresh but the taste was not inspiring, and the noodles was just okay. We also bought the ready made seafood on... read more

First thing to hit you is the chaos that is the Sydney Fish Market. People everywhere, any kind of fish imaginable displayed on ice in front of you. There is chaos trying to order from all the food vendors, but that is part of the experience. Be sure to be proactive in trying to place your order. Get the attention... More

Perhaps one of the worlds cleanest seafood markets but an experience for all locals and tourists alike The reviews here are unfair and just cant be right. I have enjoyed seafood here for over 20 years ruff and rustic like a fish market. Fight for service fight for a table and enjoy some of Sydney's best cooked seafood. Never have... More

I went for 1/2 dozen oysters after a gym session. I always buy oysters at Christie's & only buy what is being currently shucked. Today they were from Port Stevens, north of Sydney. Fresh, plump, no grit accompanied any & served with lemon. Superb! I have always & great food from Christie's whether it be grilled fish, a bowl of... More

Have wanted to go to the Fish Markets for a meal for years. Could not have been more disappointed. Chose Christie's Seafood bad mistake. Ordered the seafood basket. What I got was grease, couldn't taste anything but grease. Fish cocktails barely cooked batter & greasy, fish sticks, grease, prawn cutlets uncooked batter and grease. Oh yeah the chips maybe just...

This was the only place that we noticed that accepted credit card. We didn't have enough AUD so we had no choice but to eat here. We ordered the seafood platter. The fish and the shrimp were good, the rest, not so good. It was too greasy for me. They gave you a very small amount of catsup and you... More

I witnessed staff touching the eftpos machine and cash with the same gloves they used to handle the fish, very unhygienic. The staff are so rude and I would not recommend to anyone for service or food cleanliness. Someone should look into their food handling asap. Very disappointed.

I bought half dozen of oysters, $2 each, costing $12 and gave $20 to the staff, he gave me back $2 instead of $8. I showed him the change he gave to me and he "studied" the receipt so carefully that I couldn't help thinking he was just pretending. He is a yellow large guy. It's not discrimination but his...
