We had a table outside which we were able to choose, we were running late and able to push this back half an hour without any problems. The Host was very welcoming, explaining the particular hightlights on the menu and recommending that we share entrees to try as much... More

Enjoyed a good evening meal here with a mainly fish menu and an irrepressible patron full of charm and good humour. Try and get a table outside as otherwise you will probably end up striking a conversation with the neighbouring table if you are inside but it makes for more fun. The food is fresh , well prepared and we... More

Usually I am not a sea fan, however the food here was fresh, yummy and service was great! We got a seafood platter for 2. Since it came with natural oysters (which I do not like) they offered to server them tempura style and they were wonderful. Recommend to all

We sat out at one of the pavement tables. Two had the fish platter to share and the other three of us chose different fish dishes. We all agreed the food was good. We were served with efficiency and friendliness and we talked into trying a desert which was also good. Worth looking out this small but friendly place.

Made a special trip due to good TA reviews. Got there at evening opening time on a Tuesday and had the place to ourselves for the first hour. Shared the seafood platter which was good. The waiter also recommended a ravioli starter which contained an egg yolk and was very different and tasty (but could have done with a larger... More

We have been very fortunate in finding this gem and we make a point to go every year for my husband's birthday. Ang is so hospitable, makes you feel part of the ambience of the restaurant and the selection of wines delectable...and of course the food is always first class!

My wife and I had a fantastic experience at The Sardine Room. We wanted to get out of the CBD, see a Sydney neighborhood and eat where the locals eat. We shared squid and scallops to start followed by the barramundi and the vanilla custard dessert. It was excellent. Beyond the food, the owner/waiter made great recommendations for wine that... More

We tried the fried snapper upon recommendation from the restaurant! It was amazing and even converted a non fish eater to seafood! The service was so warm that it felt like we were regulars. Thanks for the great experience, we will definitely be back!
