Quick friendly service and the spice rub chicken was very good. Prices are more than reasonable for the quality.

The restaurant is on the harbour with great views and adjacent to the cruise ship terminal. The service was good (great clam chowder) and the atmosphere casual. It is within walking distance of most of the main hotels in Sydney.

Our meals were delicious and we had very pleasant service. There's plenty of parking and it's easy to get to and central. We love the view of Sydney Harbour. We will return to Flavor on the Water on our next trip.

We stumbled upon this small restaurant on the way back to the cruise pier. Fantastic little spot with a unique and limited menu. I had a trio of delights with soup, salad and sandwich and my partner had a burger. Very friendly service.

So good. Service is excellent and a very conveninent location just across from the Sydney boardwalk. If you are looking for the out of the way little cafe, it is the perfect place and it is compkete with the Cape Breton accent too.

Always a wonderful menu. Great for someone who is vegetarian. We ate outside on a wonderful weather day with a view of the harbor and sunset. Awesome.

We didn't see a kids menu, we were all adults and I didn't see any children there. You could always call the location and they would tell you. They have 3 locations in the Sydney area. I hope this helps you.
