We had a group long lunch in the wine room at Flying Fish. Despite the poor performance of staff (drinks were not served promptly, canapes were not served at all, entrees didn't hit the table until almost two hours, slow service on wine refills), the food made up for everything. Tuna, Barra, and everything else we all took advantage of... More

The chef and kitchen team are amazing, turning out awesome food in a stunning location. The service... Well... We were a party of 12 and gave 3 months notice, yet they were unable to keep wine glasses full. Admittedly it was a Monday night... But they did know we were coming.

We organised a work event and used the Wine Room for a private dining experience. From the very first moment, service was second to none. Outstanding food, excellent wine list and a great atmosphere. Our waiter, Lucas, was amazing and with 20+ women on wine and bubbles and the accompanying comments he handled all with a great sense of humour.... More

Some of the best fish in Sydney. Had the John Dory as a main which had a beautiful flavour and sauce, highly recommend it. Staff were warm and helpful, yet not too intrusive. One of the best restaurants in Sydney I've been to in a long time.

Whilst Flying Fish is off the well beaten track, once you arrive you can see why you came here.... The views over the water to various parts of the city and the Harbour Bridge are just part of the experience. A lazy Sunday lunch starting outside in the sun breathing in our glorious city with champagne and oysters, then inside... More

I took my partner here for dinner on a Friday night. The host was friendly and took us to our table that had a view of the harbour bridge and city lights. Atmosphere was lovely and romantic. Had oysters and sashimi for entrée, best sashimi I've ever had, so fresh and delectable. Mains were seafood and a side of greens.... More

We went for lunch with the family on Sunday for my husband's birthday and were seated at a fold out tressle table for 6. Our booking was made well in advance and this was the only fold out table in the restaurant. The food was nice but a bit overpriced. The entrees a little too expensive. For the price we... More

Visited on a sunny Sunday afternoon, for a birthday celebration. Seated with a nice view of the harbour and promptly delivered first drinks. Great choice of delicious cocktails, beer and wine, which we sampled for several hours. Food was awesome, particularly the spanner crab entree and the duck main. The deserts looked spectacular, although I didn't indulge myself. Service was... More
