I wanted take away and they do offer that with a limited menu. I got grilled fish and chips. It was good but not great. You do get a good amount of food for the value. I think it was just $11 and there was a full size piece of fish and a separate box with plenty of fries. If... More

Had a great meal here. A wide selection of seafood dishes. Generous servings! The dining room,at street level, is quite small and felt a little crowded and noisy at times.

It is a little bit off the main tourist track, yet still conveniently located to Circular Quay, and some of the harbor´s attractions. An Australian style for seafood certainly worth trying. friendly service. Since the place is small, it could be best to call ahead of time. I loved the mussels!

Of 3 courses one was outstanding (mussels), two were good (fish pie and flounder) and one was disappointing (crab cakes - too much... More

My wife and I came here for dinner once again to celebrate my milestone birthday and it delivered once again ! The meal was absolutely superb and so was the ambience and the friendly and efficient service rendered by Rachel, Nicola and Justine. We certainly can't wait to return again.

We were in the neighborhood on a Wednesday around 13:15 and we're ready for lunch. I had seen decent reviews on Yelp so we decided to try it out. It was about half full and we were seated right away. We didn't want anything too filling so we both opted for a starter and a salad served together. I had... More

Looking for great seafood on your trip to Sydney? Try 'Fish at The Rocks', It is a wonderful little restaurant on Kent Street in The Rocks area by the Sydney Harbour.

Highly rated by TA users, not disappointed in our meal the other evening. Booked early afternoon for 7pm sitting for two. Lovely starter fresh oysters and shared crabcakes. Mains were the grilled kingfish/potato pancakes and panko-coated fried whiting/chips for my wife. Prompt, professional table service, and we BYOBed, as restaurant wine list a bit limited. Shared a marvelous trio of... More
