WHERE TO EAT SEAFOOD IN SYDNEY
Australia’s vast coastline is an ideal destination for seafood lovers. Here are the top spots to enjoy the best of the blue in Sydney
Sydney’s Top Seafood Restaurants
1. Saint Peter
The beautiful marble-topped counter runs the length of Paddington’s new eatery. It’s not about deciding what you want to eat, but rather what you can afford to miss. Fill your space with seafood charcuterie, followed by a perfect piece of dry-aged fish, with their famous tart for dessert.
Barangaroo’s kitchen is home to some of the best chefs in the city. They are focusing their attention exclusively on seafood, unlike other restaurants within the Bentley Group. Forget the lemon wedge. Here your prawns are served with smoked curd, ginger, and scallops with pomelo, parsley, and your trout with XO and cucumber.
3. Ormeggio At The Spit
Ormeggio at The Spit now has a seafood restaurant. Pavoni’s love for Puglia, the southern Italian region, inspired the new direction. It’s all about seafood and cheese, along with vegetables and crudos made of wild caught fish.
4. Golden Century
If you don’t have at least one post-rager meal here, you can’t be called a Sydneysider. If you’re visiting Sydney for a special occasion, it’s not what’s in your tanks that matters. It’s a selection of fresh, wild seafood. You can’t pretend you will get out of this place without a few pippies and XO sauce. The fish is brought to you in a bag, and then the little bivalves burst open to enjoy the delicious, salty seafood sauce. It is a Sydney rite of passage.
5 Mr. Wong
This Cantonese restaurant is the best place to enjoy dim sum. Enjoy your seafood in two-bite portions, such as scallop and prawn shmai, snow pea and crystal prawn, scallop and prawn, king and bamboo shoots, lobster and scallop.
6. Gaku Robata Grill
Gaku, like many of Tokyo’s most loved restaurants, is small and chaotic. There is smoke from the robata charcoal mixed in with cheery greetings. People crammed into Gaku for their delicious hand rolls, sashimi, and grilled snacks.
- Modern Australian
Mimi’s occupies the largest portion of the second floor at the Coogee Pavilion’s new era. The live seafood menu includes sea urchin and mud crab at market prices. You won’t be alone ordering. You will also receive caviar bumps delivered to your table by a specially designed cart. The accompanying frozen vodka makes it feel like you have your own private plane, even though you can’t take it with you.
8. Petersham Fich
Fich at Petersham has a lot more charm than your typical fish and chip shop. The restaurant is split in half. On one side, you can order takeout and browse the prepared salads. The divide is covered by a white, clean dining room that features a single large fish and Norah Jones on the stereo. Here you can find everything from a Ceviche of Day to tender Calamari strips and fist-sized tomato scallops with tomato sauce to the ceviche of your choice.
9. The Morrison Bar & Oyster Bar
- The Rocks
Freshly shucked oysters should be eaten as it is intended by nature. They take their molluscs seriously. The creamy Sydney rock oysters are brought in from all over New South Wales. They come from Wallis Lake and Port Stephens.
10. Queens Hotel
What is it served? The Typhoon Shelter crab, a Hong Kong style that’s well-known at the Under Bridge Spicy Crab Restaurant in Hong Kong’s Wan Chai District, receives a Sydney version in this gorgeous second storey dining room above an Enmore pub. The crab is deep fried with garlic, chilli, and black bean and then topped off with the fried pulp made from house made soymilk for crunch.
11. North Bondi Fish
- Bondi North
What are they served? A Sydney trip is incomplete without fish and chips at the beach. It doesn’t matter if it is a flathead, coated in a crispy beer batter, and served with tartare sauce. For the ultimate A-list experience, enjoy it while taking in some of the best views from the beach.
