Delicious entree platter and baked barramundi very good. Good service and refined atmosphere. Would recommend booking ahead as small and popular.

“Unexpected baked delight in top class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

There a few restaurants in the world which gives me happy goosebumps when I talk about my experience. The whole baked baby barramundi stuffed with prawn and vegetables is one of these 10 best dishes I ever had at a restaurant. The mixture of flavors, the tenderness off the fish and great service in a beautiful location is the foundation for my excellent rating. The other dishes at the table varied between very good and excellent as well. The wine list is a strong contributor to this winning combination.

Reserve is advance since many were turned away the Monday evening I was there.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We got restaurant recommendations from local people when we were on a wine tour. We decided to try Fish at the Rocks and Le Pelican in Surry Hills. We booked the early bird special at Fish at the Rocks. The tiny restaurant was in a tucked away corner. it took us a little while to find it.

We had steamed mussels and salt and pepper calamari for appetizers. Atlantic salmon and Cone Bay Barramundi for main course. The dishes were all delicious. The dinner was $45 PP with a glass of house wine. That's a great deal in Sydney. We tried Le Pelican the next day but were not impressed.

A cozy and unpretentious place for a nice meal. Highly recommended.

“It was so so”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Found this place on TA. Read all the positive reviews made me decided to choose this place for our special dinner.

We enjoyed our mix entree, it was a great choice but our main was fine only.

All in all, we still enjoyed :)

We stayed in The Rocks area of Sydney AU and had dinner at this restaurant. The meal was wonderful and the service was outstanding. You definitely need reservations for this restaurant as it took us two days to get a res.
