Description: Hunter & Barrel Cockle Bay Wharf is a waterfront venue built on an ethos of warm and welcoming communal dining. With a backdrop of warm wooden accents, rustic stone and lush greenery. Imagine yourself in the time of the hunter and gatherer, when ancient ritual was sacred and nature was a force to be reckoned with. Hunter & Barrel is a visceral steak restaurant and bar experience that pays homage to the dawn of culinary tradition in a modern family restaurant setting. Our signature feast boards, slow-cooked meats, pies and hearty stews are prepared on our coal and spit rotisserie, with a range of seasonal vegetarian options on offer as well. Quench your thirst with a selection of barrel-aged cocktails, fat-washed spirits, craft beers and boutique wines.

We went to this restaurant after a day at the Maritime Museum. It is located across the Harbour from the museum. We have made reservations here on trip advisor and that gave us dinner at 50% off.

Great view of the Harbour. There are outdoor and indoor tables. We chose to sit inside because of the heat. We both had the ordered the fillet. Our starter was a melted cheese dip. Great. The fillets were cooked to order and were outstanding. I had chips with mine and my wife a salad. We shared an order of Brussels sprouts. Great meal. We finished with the brownie dessert with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and caramel corn. Outstanding. Great service and with the savings, a great value.

A bit overrated. Dry burger. Charred skewer. Well presented but didn't taste anywhere near as good. Then to top it off the staff dishonored a coupon which was the only reason we went there. They must not mind 1 star reviews.

Walked in during lunch a couple of weeks ago. Very accommodating as we had 2 coeliacs with us so they were very helpful in working out what was safe for them to eat. Waiter was extremely knowledgeable on this condition and totally understood cross contamination. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Highly recommend if you are in sydney.

Waited more than 1 hour for our meals to be served; maybe this was a ploy for us to spend more on drinks? I ordered a Wagyu steak which was disappointing - I should have been suspicious when it only cost AUD35 so I'm not sure whether it was really a wagyu steak or another cheaper cut? When it was time to pay the bill, my colleague had to wait forever for the wait staff to take his credit card so we nearly walked out! Granted the place was relatively busy but they had many staff so I'm not sure what their problem was?
