This restaurant is part of a large group owned by the Nick's group - and follows the same formula of big, noisy, busy. Good location overlooking Darling Harbour, so it's good for tourists. I certainly wouldn't call it a wonderful dining experience. The food's OK, but I felt as if the staff were on a frantic treadmill trying to serve... More

Hi WooWoo, Thank you for your comments on your last experience at Cyren. We are disappointed that you only found the food ok as this is far below the excellent food experience we aim for all our guests to have. During busy periods it can appear a bit frantic and the staff do have to keep very busy but the... More

Daughter had booked a week before requesting an outside table as our first visit to Sydney and was on a Saturday night when the fireworks display was on. Unfortunately when we arrived they were unable to give us an outside table which was a bit disappointing. Meals were very nice though. I had the fishermans basket which had an assortment... More

They made my cocktail incorrectly, and the food was ok. Won't be back, there are too many other options literally next door and down the street.

Beautiful night view of Darling Harbour from our outside seated table that was warmed with plenty of heat from the heaters above and to the side of us. We ordered steaks (Fillet Mignon and T-Bone) that were cooked to perfection with a side of fattoush salad that was larger than we anticipated. Only complaint would be that the water and... More

We went to Cyren for a quick good meal after work and that's exactly what we got. The service was friendly and efficient with the meal coming out very quickly. My wife's choice of kangaroo was cooked perfectly and likewise for my steak. Cyren is a large and busy restaurant (so perhaps not ideal for that romantic first date) but... More

We ate inside and a great atmosphere. We had prawns, pizza and the pork belly. All were very tasty and not out there in price either.

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighborhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's. Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Australian National Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
