Looking at the food in the windows is mesmerising, the range is huge and LOOKS delicious, however that's were it ended. The ordering is loud and confusing, we ordered the seafood platter for 2, $98 cash only - lucky it had its own ATM.! The Meal came on a small platter, with a pile of old, cold chips to make it look like there was a lot. You get crappy plastic forks that could not pull out the dry lobster from its shell, we had to ask for napkins as we had to eat most with our hands. Really disappointed, we thought because it was so busy, it must be great food but it is clearly targeted to the tourists, both quality and price wise. Probably won't eat there again, I suggest skip it and go somewhere else.

The food quality is so poor, taste is bad for cooked food and and my kids ended up with diarrhoea after the eating.

Waiter keep asking and forcing you to buy more.

Overall experience is the worst I have in Sydney.

Not impressed with the service - Always check your change. Firstly paid for meal using a $100 dollar note, Cashier immediately stored the note away and gave significantly less change (missing $50+ thought we gave him $50 instead) , usually you should hold onto the note whilst sorting out the change. He did not even supply a receipt like other customers, sketchy right? When questioned continued to ask what colour note we gave him, shouldn't he know? Coworkers didn't even react, seems like a regular occurrence. I did get the right change at the end after some short cctv check. Please takemore care when handing money. The chips were also soggy and not fresh. Local Fish and Chips shop definitely better.

Ordered a fried platter for two. The different seafood items were all battered with the same batter so everything tasted the same. Very greasy too. Perhaps it will be a better choice to choose a grilled platter so that you can taste the different flavours.

Of all the places to buy seafood in the fish markets we chose this one. I was extremely disappointed. One positive- the calamari was tender, that is the only positive! The food was cold, not just lukewarm, COLD. The lobster was tough, cold and bland. No next time for this cafe!
