Before to start, I just want to say I'm a professional chef, with over 15 years experience in fine dining, hotel, catering and restaurant service. The plates are cold, no passion to introduce the food, steak hard and rubber, cheap quality, no taste, and in this country there is a lot of nice meat!!! Starter miserable, with the Woolworths garlic... More

We stumbled across this restaurant while walking along near the Opera House. The restaurant has stunning views of the Sydney bridge, however our burger and cocktails were average in taste. If you get there before 5pm they have a special discounted menu. This may be worth a visit.

Really not too bad for a quick meal especially if going to a show but everything tastes much the same. Fills the gap and nothing is offensive, just no flavour. My steak was tasteless, the sauce tasteless and even the seeded musted was the mildest I had every come across. My wife's fish was, well you get the idea, but... More

The food here was ok, nothing special & the service was terrible! I asked for sauce once my food came out & none arrived so I then asked a second waiter & still waited a very long time. I had basically finished my meal before it came out. We tried to find someone to pay the bill & couldn't! I... More

We visited on a weeknight. I had the eye fillet steak with bernaise sauce and it was absolutely delicious. I also shared a couple of sides which were equally as tasty - the 'super crunchy chips' and the steamed broccolini with almonds. All of us really enjoyed our meals, including the eggplant parmigiana. The staff were polite, but I did... More

The Searock Grill has a great menu and is situated in a really prime location for views across the harbour in Sydney. Joseph was a credit to the staff there - very knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu including drinks recommendations for my wife which went down well. I opted for the Tasmanian salmon which was on the specials... More

We are here prior to a concert at the Opera House. We ate the battered dish and chips which was fresh and tasty and great value the service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant if wanting a quick but satisfying meal before an event!

This restaurant is situated below the buildings on the walk towards the Sydney Opera House. Nice to sit there with a glass of wine and watch people walking past and the harbor in action just beside you. The Sydney Harbour Bridge in full view. Something to look at all the time. The staff were nice and the prices were reasonable... More
