Had the Sirloin steak, but disappointed with the quality of it, especially in regards to the price. When craving for a good steak, I recommend other places in Sydney

Lovely venue in Darling harbour. Staff work really hard, keeping everyone served in busy restaurant. The grill menu is excellent, we both had steaks which were perfect, ( with mushroom sauce) the fish and chips looked really nice too. Mains around $30 to $40 AUS

Good happy hour, not too many choices tho. Nice spot by the water, didn't try the food (we looked at the menu, it's pricey)

Walking along stunning Darling Harbour, we were drawn in to this restaurant with the sights on the platters being served. The day's offer was quite good, the service very attentive and friendly, the wine a bit warm but that was taken care of with a cooler. Obviously the spectacular views in this location weigh heavily, but -again - the food... More

Went to Darling Harbour on our first night in Sydney and dined in at Waterfront Grill. Like all restaurants in the area they were very busy, which is always a good sign. Very large and generous portions were provided and very cost effective. enjoyable night dining out

We chose Waterfront Grill as we walked along the harbour area. I had the pork ribs which were good but just accompanied by chips. My husband had the New York steak which initially was enjoyable until he hit the fat and grizzle so not the best choice. The service was excellent and all the girls were very attentive. Would I...

Went here with my husband for dinner during our trip to Sydney, the food was excellent and the service exceptional. He had a burger which was of high quality and I had the panko crumbed chicken which turned out to be like a schnitzel, which was very tasty, if a little bit dry. My homemade peach iced tea was delicious... More

We loved this grill so much we went two nights running, the food was fabulous, the first night my husband and one of our friends had the ribs and steak, not for the faint hearted you certainly didn't come away wanting anything else. Staff were very helpful and polite and a great location in Darling Harbour. Worth a visit if... 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.
