“Good, casual seafood away from tourist area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by a local. It's good, casual, basic seafood. We really enjoyed the change of pace from the tourist areas. It's BYO, so bring your favorite bottle of wine with you. Also. Cash only.

An excellent casual cafe for a summer weekend lunch.
Staff are great and the seafood is always consistently good.
Prices are ok.

“Good Fish and chips in a casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Sea Cow is no upmarket seafood restaurant, but it is a great cheap casual seafood place.
Its tiny, with only a few tables, as I think most of its customers take away.
The fish is fresh, the calamari is great, and this is a no nonsense small local eatery,and you get value for money.

“Great fish and seafood, BYO wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2011

We tried this place on the recommendation of our hotel, which turned out to be a great find! Reservations aren't needed on a weeknight, but do plan ahead and BYO wine; they just charge a few dollars for corkage. The seafood is fresh and very reasonably priced (under $20, with many items under $15) — this was the first time we had ever had barramundi, and it was great! Order at the counter, serve yourself water and glasses from the fridge, and they'll bring you your food. Some outside dining, but those tables go fast. Casual with lots of regulars and locals, not touristy. Wish we could have gone back!

“Wonderful find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2010

SEa Cow is a small local fish restaurant. It is BYO with a $3.00 corkage fee. Cute and clean. Prices are reasonable for Sydney. Great fish, seafood and fish and chips. It is quite small and filled up quickly at dinner. We will go back next time we are in Sydney
