We had a lovely meal here at a very reasonable price. There was a short queue to enter but it did not take long to be shown to a table for 6, and we did not have to book in advance

The breakfast is always beautiful and the pancakes are delicious. The only thing I would change is the "hash brown" which is actually a potato rosti which is nice in the edges but the inside is not. Wouldn't hash browns from Woolworths be cheaper and 100% more tasty??? I wouldn't even care if they were smaller. Next time I think... More

Our kids like this restaurant because of the variety of food offered (pizza, ribs, steak, pancakes) at reasonable prices and quite tasty. However be warned, there is quite a long wait for a table.

We were seated reasonably quickly only having to wait for a table to be cleared and set. It was difficult to get anyone's attention to order then it took forever for the food to come! The food was ok but nothing amazing considering the wait. (Total waiting time was over an hour) The restaurant was really noisy but the building... More

I have travel to Sydney many times before and every time I go, I always stop by at pancakes on the rocks. Both Strathfield and Darling Harbour locations are great, however I take preference to Darling Harbour due to its accessibility and prime location. Do note, however, that due to its prime location, there is usually a line up outside... More

Was rather late for breakfast and pleasantly surprised that this place was still serving, after 12 noon. Not crowded on Sunday morning and so we enjoyed quick, friendly service with a variety of menus from sweet to savoury on offer. Portions were generous, camomile tea was refreshing, the atmosphere was relaxed and surroundings pleasant, so close to Darling Harbour.

Came in downstairs around 4pm looking for an enjoyable early dinner after visiting the Lego exhibit. It was just my husband and myself and we are polite, well dressed people without over the top expectations. It was quiet, no lines and there were plenty of small booths available near the windows. We asked for a booth for two. The attendant... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighbourhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
