I've been to nicks a few times before and the quality has just been declining over time. We ordered a seafood chowder and a hot and cold platter for two. The oysters look like it's been sitting there for an hour or so. The moreton bay bugs and crabs seem like they've been boiled for an hour. Absolutely no taste... More

We have preordered 3 seafood platters 45 minutes before our booking time slot to make sure be ready when our guests arrive. According to their website booking the food need to be ordered only 20 minutes or say 30 minutes in advance (once you arrived Cockle Bay Wharf) to be ready. But we have waited for another 30 minutes after... More

As massive seafood lovers thought we would give this place a try, the menu is quite extensive so there were plenty of options. I went for the mussels to start which I have to say are probably the best I have ever had!! They were huge and really tasty! beware though the portion size was massive so if you do... More

The thing about Nick's is I love the view during a breezy summer sunset. But after many attempts I still don't get the platter. Boiling and cooling down crustaceans just don't get me all excited. I do however award points for the oysters (when they are marvellous) and service.

Great variety of seafood very fresh, meal sizes decent. Would have liked to order seafood platter for two but after seeing size and other people struggling to finish decided against it looked so good though.

I purchased a Red Balloon gift voucher for my parents - a meal at Nicks seafood Darling Harbour. Every course was presented beautifully, was generous in size and delicious! The seafood was fresh, cooked to perfection and not deep fried. The location was perfect and the staff could not have done enough. My parents left very impressed and would recommend... More

Darling Harbour offers many options for food, so they all need to compete and offer something special. Nick's satisfied our desire for a seafood dinner. Busy busy, and although we had to wait at the bar for a free table, i'm glad we did. Tables close together, service that at times appeared a little frantic all added to the great... More

I've been here a few times and while the seafood remains at a good standard - not the best in Sydney by any means, the service is my main problem

What a great place to spend Good Friday 2017. Booked tabled a few weeks ago, received formal confirmation via email which was great. The weather was amazing and our table had a view of the water & boats which was nice. Received our menus whilst waiting for 2 others to arrive. Our waiter came back when everyone was seated and...
