“Best fish restaurant in Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We had been given advice to go to the Surry Hills (no 'e' in Surry) area for good restaurants. Our Concierge at the Amora Hotel advised us to go to Fish at the Rocks instead which we did. Great piece of advice as we had one of the best fish meals of our lives and as BIG foodies, my hobby is cooking, we have become extremely particular with restaurant food. We left the country the following day and returned a week later where we visited the restaurant again two nights running, it's that good. If you get there and finish before 19:45 you can have a starter, main course and a glass of wine for Aus$45 from the 'Earlybird Menu' which for the quality of food, great service and ambiance is very good value for money. We particularly recommend the baked John Dorey and also the baked Snapper. The glass of house Sauvignon Blanc is extremely good quality too. Would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant if you like fish.

“Enjoy early bird special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Two courses and a glass of wine for $45 - great value and regularly enjoyed by locals like us. The seafood is always fresh, the menu interesting, the service good. Near a lively corner in the heart of Millers Point. Must be finished by 7.45.

“Fantastic seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

If you are looking for good seafood in Sydney, this is one of the places to go to. We got a seafood platter for two, which included lobster, bay bugs (like lobster, if you don't know what it is), shrimp, etc. It was more more than enough. Very nice atmosphere and good service, in addition to delicious food.

“Just so-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel as a good place for fish where the locals go. My husband was pleased with the barramundi, but my tuna steak was overlooked and tough.
