Not much to critique. Fresh, beautifully presented dishes. Initially when we first got shown to our seats they only gave us the drinks menu which was a little annoying since we couldn't decide what drinks to choose because we didn't know what food we were having. However, after this the service picked up. Harbour views from our table. Overall, a... More

We had an OK experience here but my fish (barramundi) was not very flavorful. My husband's John Dory was good but we ordered a side of green beans and we ended up getting them much after our main course. They didn't charge us for them so that was good but the service could have been better. For us it didn't... More

My husband and I came here today for the first time for my birthday lunch and had the best time. Firstly the VIEW is incredible. I'm a Sydney local and was still impressed by the unobstructed harbour views. The host greeted me a "happy birthday" when we arrived, and so did our waiter so felt very special. I knew this... More

My wife and I visited flying fish for the first time celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary last night and was thoroughly disappointed with the service. Food quality and presentation rated above average but service from our waiter rated well below. The time lapse between first course and second course was more than an hour. When I called our waiter over,... More

Awesome dinner on a Saturday night paired with some great wines. Great views out to the harbour and the bridge. Great attentive service from the waiters.

Arrived by water taxi to Jones Wharf. Table upstairs with views of harbor and bridge, very comfortable. Our waitress was very good and we shared fresh soft shell crab rolls, ocean trout and roast barramundi which were all cooked quite well with interesting sauces. No room for dessert. Enjoyed the view and meal. Only surprise was there were very few... More

Given previous positive reviews that I had heard about Flying Fish in Pyrmont, I was looking forward to the dining experience here. Unfortunately, it fell very short of expectations, and expectations aside, it was an unimpressive experience. The key negatives were as follows: - the bread was cold and utterly tasteless; - the mocktails were bitter and lots of ice... More

Consistently excellent. The service is impeccable, the food outstanding, the setting - gorgeous. This is our favourite (and we are fussy) ... value for money and a seamless experience every time.

I had always wanted to visit this restaurant and when we finally did it lived up to all expectations. Besides the location, the view, the wooden panels and the "cluster" lights, the atmosphere was relaxed, and the restaurant was spacious. We ordered the soft-shell crab to start with, which was very nicely presented and full of flavour. It was also... More

I've been to a few of Sydney's fine dining restaurants, but all have had the same thing in common: good dishes and really bad dishes in the same line up of a tasting menu. Or sometimes I've just had one incredible tasting item on the plate, paired with something that doesn't really taste good with it. This was the first... More
