Great service and food. It was expensive but Sydney is expensive in general. You get your money's worth in the quality of food and great wines they serve. I had the Barra and the bbq "bugs" both local specialties, also the clams were some of the finest i've had

This is a small but popular neighbourhood restaurant, who managed to accommodate us on a Sunday Evening (responding to an email request within 90 minutes on Sunday) The menu is as you expect dominated by fish and there was plenty to choose from all sounded great I went for the salmon, with mixed streamed vegetables, my partner the seafood salad,...

Used to come here all the time when we lived closer. It is equally charming and fantastic as it was then. Lovely intimate old style shop front with excellent seafood menu. Very fresh beautifully prepared and presented. Service is excellent, warm, friendly and accommodating. As it is small and very popular you are advised to book. We watched many get... More

The service was a bit off. We were seated promptly but left to contemplate the universe for 10 minutes or so. It seemed strange because it's a small restaurant (couldn't seat more that 40 or so, I'm guessing). The food was good-my snapper (whole fish) was perfect as was my wife's fish. The restaurant is in a small, quaint building... More

So pleased we searched out this restaurant. Away from the main tourist areas. Friendly atmosphere and a lovely menu. The Barramundi stuffed with prawns in a red curry sauce was delightful. Nice wine by the glass.

We happened to be staying at The Langham and had already made a booking at this restaurant, what a pleasant surprise that Fish at the Rocks was located only 50 meters from the hotel. A Sunday night and the restaurant was full so I'm pleased we made the booking. The staff are bright and friendly and offered some good points... More

Dined with my wife on a warm sunny early evening in Sydney. The menu is quite extensive for a small restaurant and there is a specials board. We enjoyed some delicious Sydney rock oysters followed by crab cakes and a lovely gnocchi with prawns. My wife had the seafood stew while I had a superb barramundi. For wine we had... More
