So much to do....so little time...

Enjoy a meal at one of Sydney's best seafood restaurants

The best position in ECQ


Trading since 1987, The Sydney Cove Oyster Bar is situated on the promenade at East Circular Quay and, in my opinion, feels casual yet fancy at the same time. I have never suffered a disappointing meal here, the service has always been attentive, the views are great and the vibe is buzzy, yet relaxed.

Due to its perfect position on the water's edge , you can watch the world go by from your table while chilling with a drink and some fresh seafood, oysters, or even a steak. It is my favourite place to stop for lunch on our regular Sunday Funday ferry trips into the Quay.

Tuna Tartare


I remember having a particularly good sesame crusted tuna here and was hoping it was still on the menu. It wasn't. But that's ok because I thoroughly enjoyed the Tuna Tartare, and the Seared Tuna with cucumber, edamame and seaweed salad (I love Tuna), plus the Swordfish Steak, which was tender and juicy (finally, Swordfish that wasn't dry!).

Seared Tuna


Being a restaurant that specialises in locally sourced seafood, you can rest assured the fish is fresh and the oysters are shucked to order, sourced directly from the farmers.
