The seafood here is great. Very fresh and nicely prepared and presented. We had the raviolis and the king prawns to start and as mains we had the snapper and John Dory. All were excellent and the profiteroles for dessert were also quite good. The service though was not up to the food nor the price. Food arrived before the... More

We went to this attractive little fish restaurant about a year ago and had a very good meal, so when we needed somewhere for an early dinner before the theatre, we thought of it immediately. We were pleasantly welcomed and given a menu, but the specials board was at another table and we had to wait some ten minutes before... More

While in Sydney, we ate at the Fish at the Rocks. It was a fantastic meal. You MUST make reservations, as they are booked every night. I had the Moreton Bay Bugs. They were delicious. I would recommend them.

just 5 minutes away from the (very) touristic restaurants at the waterfront you will find near the Observatory this very authentic fish restaurant (nice walk under the harbour bridge as a free extra) perfect service, realy fresh fish and other plates at correct prices for large portions; as a starter I would suggest the rock oysters wine is very good...

Great fresh fish doesn't guarantee great food, but this restaurant certainly delivers. We don't often eat two nights at the same restaurant when on vacation, but we made an exception here, and were extremely happy with all our choices of starter and main dishes. Can even recommend the beer brewed literally down the street, ie Lord Nelson!

We just wandered in but we were able to sit upstairs today in the early evening. The restaurant became very busy and reservations would be best. The best tables are upstairs on the patio but there are only two. The restaurant has been around since the late 80's and the decor is in that decade. We had crab cakes, and... More

This is a small restaurant that serves an eclectic menu that changes often. The main dining room is sparely furnished, and can be a bit loud at the height of dinner hour. The food is excellent, and the Moreton bugs were particularly well done and well presented. Pricey, but worth it. Oh, and stick to wine, The bar is limited.
