We had a lovely meal to celebrate our 8 year engagement anniversary. The meal was fantastic, the restaurant is very romantic and has beautiful views, and the service is outstanding.

“Great meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

We visited Haro's at the Sidney Pier - they have changed the menu and there are a range of excellent choices including healthy options and a wide price range. Great for couples, families with kids and for taking elderly parents. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and most impressive is the way the restaurant and hotel links to the community of Sydney. We shall return to check out other items on the menu.

“Loved It!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

My wife and I went here in late January, staying in Sidney after arriving late on a flight. Did not know anything about the place as I always do many, many reviews of anywhere we go, eat, visit etc. Surprised to see the reviews on the site currently, I can only say that they must have changed because of them as our evening there was great!
Server, young man from England (via Australia), was very pleasant, made suggestions, and looked after us all evening, but did not bother us. I had their Clam Chowder, and believe it was the best I've had for quite a long time. It was light on the potatoes (as so many others use them for 'filler'), and very heavy of the seafood....and very tasty! My wife had a salad that she enjoyed, can't remember what kind. She had the Pulled-pork Tacos, and they were heaping with meat, with a good BBQ sauce. I had the Seafood Curry and it was delicious and a goodly amount of assorted seafood on the rice....loved the grilled prawns....and the grilled salmon!
Then came the 'sinful' part. I ordered Sticky Pudding, with 2 spoons.....man....is this stuff good!!
If you don't know what it is...just order it!
Pricing was reasonable for the quality, taste and presentation. Service was observant, efficient and pleasant. We will go back for certain.
They have a broader menu with some excellent items but only available after 5;00pm.
Also, a nice trio was beginning to play when we were leaving.
The view is delightful.

“Terrible service, high prices”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Its hard to review this restauraunt's food since we never got any. We were there for almost 45 minutes before a server took our drink orders then waited another 20 minutes for our drinks. How long does it take to pour a beer?! There were only 6 other people at 2 other tables on the patio so it was not that busy. We decided then and there not to order food. It wasn't worth the frustration.
