This restaurant is situated perfectly for people watching. We sat on the outside to take full advantage of the view, this proved a smart move as when we had reached the desert phase of our meal the night sky was lit by a fantastic firework display, which added greatly to the experience. Staff told us that this frequently happens on... More

We went at least 3 times to Cyren during the week after Xmas 2016 and we're glad we found this place in Darling Harbour. First of all, their happy hour has great deals on drinks: 5$ for a selection of beers or 10$ cocktails. Also, there are bar plates offered up to 50% off during this period although the final...

A seafood platter to die for. Fish, king prawns, calamari and soft shell crab. Not cheap, but worth every cent. Great setting and GOOD fans (mucky appreciated) for what was a pretty hot day. Attentive and friendly staff (yes a shock for Sydney 😱😄)

Fantastic location in a prime part of Darling Harbour. Front Row seats to the fireworks held every Saturday in Darling Harbour. Had the calamari and whole lobster and was impressed with the quality and value for money. Service is generally good but at times the staff were hard to catch as the place was so busy and large. Overall highly... More

We enjoyed our meal here which is in a great location on Darling Harbour. We sat in a booth outside and on the boardwalk. It took a while to take our orders but the waitress was very friendly and the drinks and meals came out quickly.

Food here was really nice. I had an awesome steak and my husband had a nice snapper fillet. However service wasn't great. When my husband and I arrived to be seated the hostess was rude and we were made to feel that we weren't wanted there because we hadn't booked. It was not a busy night and there was many... 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.
