Restaurant and view was beautiful. Staff were friendly and service was exceptional. We had the 6 course degustation and every mouthful was amazing and fresh. This would have to be hands down the best seafood I have ever had. Although this restaurant is on the pricier side its worth every cent. Would definitely dine here again. Amazing!

We have been to Flying Fish Restaurant a couple of times. The food was well prepared and very good but not in the spectacular category. Even though it was very expensive - a couple of hundred dollars for the two of us with a couple of glasses each of decent wine- I didnt think it was over priced given the... More

Having a lovely table by the window and enjoying well cooked food is not quite enough to satisfy my wife here. We were left with main dishes not cleared for a long time, at least half an hour. Having ordered two wines by the glass I also would have loved to have tried another. My glass was cleared with the... More

The service was outstanding - attentive without being over-the-top and the food was excellent. I especially enjoyed the sashimi fish and the heirloom tomatoes for entrees and the Trevalla and the duck for mains could not have been better - great presentation and flavours that left you wanting more! Definitely go back...

What a way to kick off a week in Sydney! The view from Flying Fish is incredible and the food is not only beautiful in presentation but a sensational taste of Sydney. You will find a small, very refined menu at Flying Fish and I can't imagine anything on the menu isn't spectacular. For apps, try the Oysters, Sashimi Plate,... More

We had a quiet lunch for two overseeing the harbour. We had a range of dishes. Each was fresh and well seasoned. My husband and I felt like we were the only people in the restaurant (even though we weren't). Thank you for a quiet, intimate lunch and delicious food. The sashimi melted in our mouths, the chips were salty... More

Beautiful food, sensational flavours, in a wonderful spot. However it was night time and on the second floor they do have beautiful hanging lights but it does take away from the overall view of the Harbour Bridge. Service for drinks was slow, overall nice meal, but expensive. Guess you are paying for the view, even though you don't get to... More

A great restaurant with fantastic service. I ordered the sashimi which was just amazing, full of natural flavour and so fresh. Plating also looked amazing. For main I had the Dory with crispy skin, beautiful sauce and packed with flavour. Could not fit desert in, but had the love boat cocktail yummy. The view of the harbour is stunning. It... More
