My girlfriend and I went to Baia after coming down for the week from Adelaide, and after having a quick stroll down darling harbour decided this looked the best value. Sunset deal between 5-7pm included an entree, main, dessert and drink for only $30, and as such drew us right in. With the food so cheap we expected smaller portions... More

This restaurant was absolutely terrible. The chairs were all ripped. The food was disgusting. The service was so slow. The drinks took forever to turn up. My advice is not to go there

The restaurant was busy. Usually this is a good sign, but not this time. The quality of the facility is dilapidated, the seats need to be recovered, the tables wobble and the male toilets door handle has broken off. On the face of it the Sunset menu looked like good value but the meals lacked flavour and imagination. Their kids... More

The meal (breakfast) was over priced, the Ricotta hot cakes were partially doughy. Coffee was served in a small glass. The scrambled eggs were dry.

The Sunset Menu is excellent Italian food and VERY good value for money. With a table overlooking Cockle Bay what more could you ask for.

Visited Baia with my wife whilst on a weekend in Sydney together. Starters were cold and sauce tasted like it was out of a jar. My main was saffron tagliatelle and I found it extremely disappointing. Overall meal was cold, the pasta was of supermarket shelf quality and very chewy. Rabbit meat was dry and the peas were not cooked... More

This was not nice. On a weekend holiday and wasted a dinner at this place. Nothing was hot. Store bought pasta and tinned meat in my ravioli! Stands on its location not on the quality of food.

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.
