We were here on a morning in our a week stay in Sydney to grab some fresh seafood (which we did). It was around 10am when we arrived and the place was crowded as it was just a few days leading to Christmas and many people were doing their last minute shopping and stocking of seafood. After walking around for... More

Fish market cafe provides you various kinds of dishes, that me, as a solo traveler was stoked and had such a hard time to choose for a single portion for me. Ended with a single plater option, that came with such a HUGE portion with decent price. So it was an awesome deal. The taste was quite awesome, the oyster... More

We have often eaten at the Sydney Fish Markets but on this occasion decided to sample the wares from a different outlet. We were not disappointed. After a drive of several hours it was delightful to pop in here for a late lunch outdoors by the water on a fine day. My partner chose a classic fish and chips, whilst... More

Some places just get things right, fish market cafe is one of them. Ok, some of their baked/grilled fish can be a little dry/overdone but stick with any of the deep/pan fried offerings, including the bbq'ed ones, you'll not go wrong. We always get their salt/pepper king prawns, bbq octupus, fried calamari, lobster tails 😁 nyum. They recently do sushi/sashimi... More

Varieties of seafood available. Price were reasonable. Limited tables in the cafe but plenty of tables outside the Fish Market, by the bay. We bought 2 boxes of mixed (grilled & fried) seafood for 2 and ended up having to packed some to bring back to our hotel. The place might get crowded during weekend.

On the whole, decent meal and great value for money. Grilled scallops and salt and pepper calamari were excellent. Cooked just eight and still moist and juicy. The cocktail abalone was sweet and just right. Fresh oysters were just that, fresh. Lobster was overdone and a bit of a miss as was the beer battered barra which needed more salt.

We went in a group of 8 though they don't take bookings agreed to reserve a table at back. The staff were very helpful and the baked Lobster with chillie was excellent. All the fish and prawns too were fresh and we throughly enjoyed it that our friends from the US insisted we all go back within a week .... More

Most of the food was not too bad. Wouldn't recommend getting the oyster mornay or scallops aburi because it was quite cold and not tasty. Soft shell crap and grilled fish were good.

Bought a piece of cooked lobster tail, it was yummy, a bit expensive to me though. I guess if going with friends can try more variety of seafood. I went by myself, couldn't eat much.
