Visited Nick's for dinner on a Friday evening. We were staggered to to see the number of covers in the place which was full. The atmosphere was certainly buzzing. We ordered our food and a bottle of wine. The waitress didn't write anything down and sure enough the wine didn't arrive. After asking again we received the wine with the... More

Food was excellent, service was okay, a little put off by being charged extra for it being a Sunday (perhaps that's an Aussie thing?) We both had seafood that was really good. Portions were large. Would go again

Grilled John Dory with a side serving of chips and garden salad and a glass of white wine for $75. Pleasant but not stunning

Took overseas business guests there and what we got was a bunch of soggy fries and stale fish camouflaged by deep fried batter. It was like a super size me up crappy tourist trap. Quite unfortunate as I head some good reviews prior to going to the restaurant, only to find out I have taken my clients to a place... More

The crab ravioli with pernod cream were a delicious starter followed by whole giant king prawns (butterflied with garlic butter served with a greek salad) - accompagnied by a nice glass of wine. Very attentive staff! It is a big and vivid restaurant and it seems difficult to Keep the overview...

Where do I begin or may be I should just say that the service is the worst we have ever seen and a special mention to the most unfriendly host Ms. Nikki. I believe she isn't usually like this and was just having a bad day. We really hope to come back here just because of food and location and... More

We had a table of four on a Friday night and wow, what a conundrum! We started at the bar while waiting for a table and the cocktails were to die for! Highly recommend the 'golden gaytime' and the 'pash and dash'. Once at the table though, the mess around really started! We ordered a garlic bread, drinks and 4... More

Eaten in Nicks many times and the food is always good. Seafood platter is excellent, fishermans basket, awesome. Food is a little overpriced compared to others nearby but to be fair, after eating there more than a dozen times over the past few years, I've never had a bad meal. Always enjoyable, nice atmosphere. Will continue to visit at least... More

It was a seafood feast, fresh seafood excellent customer service and great Darling harbour views. Value for money as the seafood platter could easily feed three adults and the dessert was delicious. Only negative thing I would say is the kids meal wasn't very good and small servings for the price. Overall it was great and will be back but... 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.
