Took work colleagues to lunch, and was great setting. Location and atmosphere was perfect for staff to unwind. Attentive wait staff with superb food made for an enjoyable afternoon. Overlooking darling harbour on a sunny day, while eating a seafood lunch, doesn't get any better

Wide selection for anyone. Large portions even for us Texans. However, do ask the waitstaff if the fish you want is fresh or frozen, and if farm raised or wild. There's a good reason barramundi is priced so low.

On our recent stay in Sydney we were lucky enough to dine at Nick's Seafood. The food was delicious, staff fantastic and we had a great table and view. We will definitely be back! The Moreton bay bugs were huge and delicious!

Beautiful location on the Wharf at Darling Harbour and sitting outside looking across Darling Harbour is a great setting for dining. However, the menu choice is extensive and the crowds there for Sunday lunch provide testimony for the quality of the food. Our meal was...More
