Seafood paella, fresh oysters, chowder, crab pasta, and a famous seafood platter for two. These are just some of the signature dishes that dot the extensive selection at Darling Harbour’s Blue Fish, an avowedly modern, Australian restaurant that invites diners to enjoy their meal al fresco when the weather’s good. And thank goodness it often is in lucky old Sydney. You’d be forgiven for thinking Blue Fish was exclusively a seafood restaurant, but there’s more on offer here along the Harbourside Promenade. Find them quite rightly by the water in the Harbourside Shopping Centre off Darling Drive.
It’s true that blue Fish has made a name for itself by offering some of the best waterfront seafood dining in Sydney. It’s also true that when it comes to the fresh fish and seafood on offer at this Darling Harbour eatery, the staff at Blue Fish go to great lengths to preserve Australia’s marine life by sourcing only sustainable stock from the Sydney Fish Markets, twice daily – nothing but fresh, nothing but ethical. That said, Blue Fish’s Harbourside Promenade kitchen, in the shopping centre off Darling Drive, does a whole lot more when it comes to modern Australian cuisine.
If you’ve ticked off Blue Fish’s famous seafood platter for two, or even the equally renowned Sydney chowder from your briny bucket list, why not give some more esoteric examples of uniquely Australian cuisine a spin? Kangaroo or Tasmanian Wilderness and grassfed sirloin steak come highly recommended. The menu at this Darling Harbour restaurant is also sprinkled with wine pairing suggestions, most of which are of Australian origin, and all of which are almost obligatory if you really want to round off a meal along the Harbourside Promenade. Ok, so we can’t help but return to Blue Fish’s fish. There’s one further you can go when it comes to seafood platters, and that’s the appropriately named Giant Family Seafood Platter. Book a table for you and your loved ones at Blue Fish’s premises in the shopping centre off Darling Drive and get ready for a list of fish and seafood delicacies as long as a deep sea trawler’s line.
this has been a truly unique experience. I will be back next weekend all my family enjoyed the food and specially the atmosphere and the friendly staff
Fabulous seafood experience on the edge of the waters at darling harbour. Fine food and excellent service. A lovely place to have lunch with friends.
