We have been to this restaurant several times almost whenever we visit Sydney from NZ, and have never been disappointed. This time we visited for my wife's birthday with our son and partner, who live in Sydney. The food was wonderful, and yes I did have the whole barramundi and really enjoyed that, while the sample of my wife's soft... More

What else to say? Brilliant food and relaxed but efficient service. The wine perfectly matched the seafood and was impressively presented

A small restaurant that appears to be little known. However, it deserves more- good food and impeccable service. We couldn't fault a thing- the food and the wine were both good and served well. Definitely worth searching out.

Beautiful boutique restaurant with excellent service and tasty food. I was in Sydney on business (with a little fun fun mixed in) and dining alone this day but I would think this would be the perfect place for a romantic dinner or a quiet client lunch. The interior is elegant. I arrived at 2-ish and was immediately seated. I was... More

In every city there a little restaurants hidden in the back streets, and many of these are the true places to eat at. Fish at the Rocks, in Sydney, is one of those places. The space is lovely (a renovated old building). The food is mainly seafood, and is always fresh and honest. Not too much "interfering" with flavours here,... More

We had a lovely 3-course meal with a glass of wine at a very good rate by choosing to eat before 7:15 pm. The food and service was excellent.
