“great seafood restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

this little place is a gem in the best area in Sydney, the old the Rocks!
it was 5 of us, all foodies and hospo workers, and we loved it since the first step we walked in!
the atmosphere is very intimate, more for couples than big groups of friends, and we nearly felt like we were ruining the dinner to the other customers, but the 2 waiters were totally fine and none complained!
we tried pretty much each entre, oysters included, and then we had the famous baked and stuffed barramundi, delicious, a couple of special and the seafood pie to share! everything was very tasty and fresh, the service was impeccable and the prices are so cheap, considering the location and being a seafood place!
we'll definitely be back!

“'Great introduction'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Visiting Sydney for a show and taken to Fish at The Rocks, we strolled up to Kent Street at my brother's suggestion, hoping a table would be available and happy to find we could be accommodated. Prompt and attentive waiter service ensued: this small classy restaurant has hand-picked staff! First treated to tiny pastries followed by a lovely seafood platter selected by the owner, we found that the wine list allowed for varying palettes as well as the menu's delicate and piquant flavours. Our eating experience was enhanced by the intimate atmosphere despite having many tables in a small space. Sophisticated and recommended!

“Great dinner and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Made reservations for dinner before the opera. We had to pickup our tickets at will call and needed a little extra time to do so. The management opened up fifteen minutes early so we would not feel rushed. We had the fixed menu ($45.00 per person). Plenty of fabulous food.
This was a great experience.

“Great intimate dinner in a tourist area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We weren't too sure about this place when our hotel in The Rocks recommended it because it's in a rather touristy neighborhood, but it was a lovely surprise. The food was great quality and cooked perfectly, and service was pretty good (only complaint was that water glasses were not refilled).

It's a small place, so you may want to get a reservation if you're going at a peak time.
