All in all this is a great spot. A little off the beaten path from central Sydney but has a great modern atmosphere with delicious food and a nice wine list with great bottles from all over Australia and NZ. Additionally, the views toward the harbor and the bridge are really nice and our server was quite friendly and made... More

The food was decent - only the sniffy condescending staff undermined this to be honest. We hadn't booked a table but it was literally half empty on a mid-week afternoon. We asked if we could have a table and the waiter literally looked us up and down and said he'd need to go and check. Hilarious!!!! We weren't wearing business... More

I went with my family to celebrate my mother's birthday (a zero!). It was a beautiful sunny Sunday and the perfect place to be celebrating. We arrived and were seated at a nice table (not a window) but still nice. The menu was explained and wine orders taken. Our entrees were served and were delicious. Four of us had the... More

For a special night out, you can't beat this specialty seafood restaurant. It has beautiful views of Pyrmont with the Harbour Bridge and city lights in the background. The Chef's Table menu is to die for! The Chefs personally come to your table and explain each degustation-style dish as they serve it to you - each course even more delicious... More

Had lunch at this seafood restaurant located in an old wharf on Sydney Harbour. As my elderly father was coming, a table downstairs was requested. This request was confirmed and we were surprised on arrival that lunch was only served upstairs. Fortunately there was a lift. Our party of 8 had three courses and every plate was empty when we...

This is one of my favourite restaurants. It's located at the end of Jones Bay wharf in a cool part of Sydney. The food was excellent but the atmosphere was the winner. indoor and outdoor options and a short walk to darling harbour or the casino.

We ate here with friends and I must say the restaurant was very accommodating when our afternoon activity ran way overtime. They changed our booking on a Saturday to 2 and a half hours later. Setting is great and so is the food. The scallops entree was perfectly cooked and full of interest whilst the fish main was perhaps the... More

We have dined here twice in the past 6 months. Having been here regularly over the years, we decided to try the degustation menu (for lunch). In hindsight, we regretted it. Many of the dishes are simply pared down versions of their larger brothers on the menu. Most were fantastic, some were misses (soured milk emulsion that still gives me... More
