Quality fresh seafood

A very enjoyable business dinner for myself & a colleague. Entrees including oysters & scallops were good size & tasty. Main was a whole fish for him, & Morton bay bugs for me. Both well cooked & tasty. Wine list broad & service attentive. We'll go back to celebrate again soon.

My husband and I visited this restaurant on our first night in Sydney. The red snapper was so good we made it our restaurant for our last night. We were not disappointed. I had the barramundi and my husband the red snapper again. They both were amazing! We call it "do it again great!" Don't miss this place!

My husband and I ate here at the suggestion of the concierge at the Park Hyatt. It was a good meal, a little pricey for what we got (but that's Sydney!).

This is then reinforced by the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff but it is the menu that delights, seafood of every complexion imaginable, superbly cooked and presented... More

Read so much about it so wanted to try and was not disappointed. Food was great, atmosphere and area is very historic and nice. We got there early and had the early bird which was two course and a wine which would probably caused use way more than otherwise so very happy with the dinner.
