Pretty basic seafood, very touristy. Good to come for the gram but no need to come again. Not worth the value sorry.

The seafood was so fresh here even a bit pricey but the quality of freshness was great. Easy to get everything about seafood that i really want to eat and try from this market. It was great.

The seafood is extraordinary fresh and delicious. Although the seagulls are one of the attractions of this market, they are really irritating.

The Salty Squid Cafe is on the grounds on the Sydney Fish Markets but it's so much easier to find a table there. The food is great and they have the wonderful James Squire beer on tap.

Try the Light Rail there is a stop right alongside the market. Otherwise a taxi from where you are would not be too expensive
