The lady who served me was lovely - the food was ok for the cost but the unbelievably rude man who takes you to your seats when you 1st get there needs to have an attitude adjustment, I was so close to leaving before I even sat down due to his disgusting attitude, will never go back there as there...

Had dinner with two colleagues last night Appetizers arrived before our drinks, and the mains came out at different times as well. Food was very good, large portions, but they could work on their service.

The worst experience I had in my life. The management was so rude to me, accusing me of lying about quality of their food: After I said that my food is not edible, they took it away (without asking) and then CHARGED me for it!!!! Then dropped a pastry on my friend and put that pastry in the to-go box.... More

Excellent location especially if you remember to book in advance and order a balcony table. Food / menu options are extensive covering a variety of gluten free options which is a big plus - not just limited to the salad or steak. Meal portions especially the mains are great - you will not go hungry. The service is attentive and... More

Service was too slow, bruschetta wasn't very nice at all. I ordered the Frank Sinatra linguine which was horrible, the mussels were empty and the rest of the seafood wasn't nice at all, the only tasty thing on the plate was the cracked pepper which I added. My husbands veal was too salty, daughters penne salmon was only penne but... More

Worst customer service. Pizzas are awesome. Huge variety of food. You get to order once then you never see a waiter again after that. Nobody comes past to check everything is ok and nobody comes to ask you if you need another drink. Isn't drinks the biggest money maker. I ordered 1 beer then never even got a chance to... More

We have been coming to Criniti's for years but have noticed that with their expansion, the service, menu and general ambiance has changed. Our party of 3 were seated outside at table 70 (as the music inside was too loud), but even outside I had to raise my voice to be heard. They did manage to put the volume down... 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.
