The area is really nice, park views, Chinese Garden etc. Great for people watching. Staff are very attentive and great service. The menu is average and the food is rather expensive for what you get - the pizza is tasty tho.

Well, we started at midday and left as it was getting dark, so my recollection may be a bit fuzzy. A large group of family and friends went to celebrate a birthday, convenient from all areas of Sydney, family friendly, no problem with a split bill, which is great for large groups. Food was good, service was good although we... More

Called in to eat there on the way to the Fast4 Tennis last week. Had the English Spinach, pumpkin, beetroot and pinenut salad ...delicious. Hubby had pizza which was the best pizza other than what my hubby makes at home. Service excellent. Will go there again.

We had a vegie supreme and a hawaiian pizza and for us they weren't that great. For $20 pizzas you could argue that they are alright value but for that price you still expect a certain amount of quality. They seemed a bit production line like and they came out super fast which isn't always a good thing. For a... More

Nicks R, Manager at Stacks Taverna, responded to this review

Dear Chris, Thank you for your honest opinion. I am sorry if you were disappointed for the quality, it is not the traditional Naples pizza style. The cooking time is given from the thin base and the oven we use. Best regards, Stacks Management More

Went for lunch with friends....Menu looked average but ok for our needs so we too a seat. We should have left though, I really wish we had. The whole place was filthy - tables, chairs, bench seats, water bottles..... Service was appalling - the best skill the staff had was avoiding eye contact at all costs, and avoiding table service....

From what I read there was nothing able to satisfied your demand and I am sorry for that. The venue is cleaned daily by professionals, but it’s an open restaurant so lot of dust and dirt can settle. Vegetables and salads are received every day to provide customers with the fresher product. I’ll personally talk with the staff about avoiding... More

I went to Stacks with my Grandmother for some coffee on a quiet Monday for some tea and coffee. After waiting 15 minutes our coffees we asked one of the 5 waiters/waitresses walking around aimlessly, why it was taking so long. They advised us that they had not put the order through and would do it then. After waiting a... More

I have been here a few times for steak when visiting Sydney. The prices are reasonable and the food is of a good quality. The price of drinks is also reasonable. Every time I have attended the service has been great.

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.
