About Blue Fish

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.

Further Information

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.

Absolutely perfect lunch! 6 of us dined for a Sunday lunch. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant. Food was 10/10 ! Great fresh seafood and all meals were perfect! Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Food came out fast and even when we had our entrees served we added another 2 late and they were out in minutes. Thanks for a wonder experience!

Food and service was very good and of course, the view out over Cockle Bay was superb. Menu selection was varied and wasn't limited to seafood though the mussels were tops! The only problem we found was that the table was a little small for 3 people to have room for bread plate, food, wine glasses etc. Otherwise, a great venue.

It is very appreciate that you provide blanket! But I think your table is a little bit small for 8 people, it is seems no enough place for the dishes.

Nice relaxing Sunday afternoon meal in Darling Harbour with family & friends. Great Sauvignon Blanc accompanied the Family Seafood Plater, and the mango salad with macadamia nuts was great too.

Waitress was pleasant. Waited an hour for meals. Then my sizzling garlic prawns were at room temperature and not sizzling - even after being sent back. Don't bother to go on a busy night - tho I'm not sure there are any quiet nights at darling harbour.

The food was very good, this restaurant is a favourite of ours and we visit frequently. However, this time the service was slow, and we were sitting inside where it was very noisy.
