“Fresh Fish Anyone?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Just down the road from The Langham in Kent Street is this local gem. Small and busy but with attentive staff ( that did get a little slow towards the end of the evening ) and a delicious menu made up mostly of fresh seafood this restaurant is not to be missed if you are staying at The Rocks.

“BEST fish dish ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We tried the food at this restaurant by chance and were "WOWed"! It is simply amazing, so good that we had lunch AND dinner there in the same day. We were staying at a hotel nearby the restaurant and had walked passed it a few times, not thinking much of it! From outside the decor looked minimalist and every time full! We put it down to the lack of places to eat nearby until we actually went in and had the BEST fish dishes ever! Oysters are a must! they are so amazing you never want to stop! We tried a whiting dish and a black cod dish, both of which were cooked to perfection. Not to forget the young lady waitress who was extremely helpful finding out the source of the oysters for us. We will never forget our experience here.

“A great little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Our group enjoyed the early bird special at $45 per head and were able to BYO. There was a good selection of meals availab for both entree and mains. One of our party who requires gluten free was well catered for. Service was not overly attentive as there only appeared to be one waiter looking after the upstairs dining area. Nice atmosphere and decor. We will visit again.

“Fish at The Rocks - A Secret Little Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant to us as our favourite seafood restaurant in Sydney had bitten the dust! When we attempted to book (at short notice), we were advised to arrive early as the only available table had to be vacated at 7.00pm. We did so, and chose a curried pumpkin soup as well as a salt and pepper squid with salad. The dishes were delightful and went extremely well with the recommended sauvignon blanc. In addition, the staff were extremely pleasant and efficient and we left on a real high at 6.45pm! We couldn't believe it when we read later that this restaurant was established in 1988 and we had never heard of it beforehand! What a secret little gem!

“Speak no evil - hear no evil - see no evil”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

But I can't contain myself

No you can't hear your dining partners because of the acoustics and No you can't see in the gloom of the restaurant and the food is so overpriced as to beg reason. Would pass on this one.
