Our meals were delicious and we had very pleasant service. There's plenty of parking and it's easy to get to and central. We love the view of Sydney Harbour. We will return to Flavor on the Water on our next trip.

We stumbled upon this small restaurant on the way back to the cruise pier. Fantastic little spot with a unique and limited menu. I had a trio of delights with soup, salad and sandwich and my partner had a burger. Very friendly service.

So good. Service is excellent and a very conveninent location just across from the Sydney boardwalk. If you are looking for the out of the way little cafe, it is the perfect place and it is compkete with the Cape Breton accent too.

We only had the take-out soup (tomato soup and curry lentil soup). The sourdough bread was great. We loved the soups but they were small for the price. Be careful, they stay very hot for a long time! I'd skip Flavors on the Water and...More

We didn't see a kids menu, we were all adults and I didn't see any children there. You could always call the location and they would tell you. They have 3 locations in the Sydney area. I hope this helps you.
