I had the dinner here with my 11 years old daughter. We had the early dinner set, which is good in price. but the portion is not enough even for us. The seafood was fresh, white wine is fruity. The fish was cook in fusion style, fried the cod fish with soy sauce, actually not a good match and not... More

Perfect cozy restaurant. Our tour guide recommended this place to try the local barramundi with a glass of Semellion wine. Dinner stood up to the recommendation. We started with a dozen of rock oysters; fresh and flavorful. For mains we had the barramundi, deboned with red curry and rice and the snapper with the garden salad and a couple glasses... More

Located one block from the historic Lord Nelson pub (oldest operating pub in Sydney and definitely worth visiting for a pint or two!), Fish on the Rocks is a lovely dining room, specializing--as the name suggests--in seafood dishes. It's small, so reservations are essential. Service is super--friendly and knowledgable. Food is equally excellent. A terrif lunch or dinner spot, close... More

Average that's the word - nothing wrong as such but not a lot to rave about . Still struggling with jet lag the in before 1845- out by 1945 special menu seemed a good idea - 2 courses and a glass of wine for $49 - not really a bargain - but what we have come to expect in Sydney... More

Came here with my wife and a friend. We enjoyed a really nice lunch in a great location. The food was very good and the fish was great. The service was attentive - I'd recommend this restaurant although like much of Sydney, it feels a tad overpriced.

I hadn't tried this place before, but set up a last minute business dinner. It's a small two story restaurant that is very cool. I really liked the building and the restaurant's set-up. It's located in The Rocks of course. I had the mussels which were excellent. My guest had the fish stew which I was told was very good... More

We were in the mood for seafood and since this restaurant was relatively close to the hotel and had pretty good reviews, a quick call and off we went. Fish at The Rocks, is probably best described as a neighborhood type of restaurant with great food. The place was practically full on arrival which is often a good sign. We... More

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.

Thank brisgreg
