A dear friend booked his Birthday Party here for a small group of family and friends. It was very interesting being on the old ferry again and not having to worry about rough water going past the Heads - only a gentle rocking. The room...More

We visited on Good Friday with 2 children (12 & 9) for dinner, and shared the seafood platter for 2 - there was enough for the four of us to enjoy a lovely meal and feel full. Service was friendly and efficient.

Warmly greeted as we arrived and were taken to our table. Service was friendly and helpful. Menu offered several lovely dishes to choose from, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Would definitely return. Saturday night fireworks, a lovely surprise!

The food was OK and the drinks modestly priced. The service was great. I'm an ex-seafarer and so really enjoyed looking around the old girl. It was a really enjoyable lunchtime visit.

I will be in Sydney on the weekend of 27-28/05/2017. It is my birthday on the 27/05/2017 and was thinking of trying a nice restaurant in Darling Harbour on the Saturday night. What would you recommend? I have been to Olivo 2-3 times and really liked it but would like to try something else.
