A pleasant stroll to the end of Jones Bay Wharf; enjoy a pre-lunch drink and enjoy the comings and goings on the waterway in comfort. A very pleasant Sunday lunch indeed. Delicious sashimi was generous in variety and portion. The oyster selection was sufficient for variety; whole prawns with a choice of three styles saw Pepper sauce (think sambal olek)... More

I took my girlfriend, her sister and her mum to this restaurant when in Sydney. We had one of the best experiences dining that any of us had ever had. The food was fresh, delicious and of very high quality. The service was what made it so much more special for us; they welcomed us all and made us feel... More

The service needs to improve. I just hope it was for this night. Albeit we had to wait 30 minutes extra from our time of booking, waiting is not the issue especially with the views, I had to ask if the table was ready as the waiter had forgotten us. Also, we had to chase up the drinks whilst we... More

Went to this restaurant after a show so at around 8.00pm. Stood in a queue and ordered the flathead bear batter fish and chips, price $25. It would have to be the worst Fish I have eaten in a very long time. The batter was very crunchy but the fish was like a 2 pieces of dried leather, almost inedible.... More

We had dinner here Xmas eve and enjoyed a window table upstairs with a delightful view even though it turned into a wet evening. The service was efficient, courteous and polite. I can't quite put my finger on it but missing something. The food was also missing something as we were advised the mud crab was not available. It was... More

My husband took me to the Flying Fish for my birthday dinner. It was super easy to get there on the bus from Park St downtown (near Town Hall station) via bus 389. Once we got to Pirrama Park, the first thing that struck me was the quiet-- as tourists visiting Sydney, Pirrama Park and Wharf were pure heaven after... More

Upon arrival, the maitre'd looked us up and down disapprovingly and asked twice if we had reservations. We did not. He then begrudgingly took us to a table. Our waitress was very sweet and looked after us well. The food was bland but we'll prepared. The portion size provided adequate calories for a woman under 5'5" who is on a... More

We dined here about 5 years ago, and wanted to celebrate our wedding anniversary in a special way, so booked again. We were not disappointed. The entrees (soft shell crab, grilled prawns) were tasty and beautifully prepared. We both had John Dory for our main course, and it was probably the best seafood dish we’ve had for a very long...

We booked Flying Fish for Christmas Day, and were seated at a table with a fantastic view. Service was slow, but that may have been because it was Christmas. We started off with two cocktails, and I enjoyed mine, it was called a Bollywood Star, and had a nice kick to it. Not on the menu, and a nice surprise... More
