Seafood
After 33 years trading on East Circular Quay the Sydney Cove Oyster Bar has taken up residence in The Zoo Keepers Store near the famous Cable Beach in Broome WA.

Incredibly when we closed in Sydney and floated the idea of moving to Broome the highly skilled and passionate kitchen and floor team decided to come along too.

Sydney Cove Oyster Bar has been serving Australia's finest seafood since 1988 and is an absolute must visit for locals and tourists alike in Broome.

The menu has many favourites from its Sydney days, including pan-seared barramundi, steamed mussels, our famous fish tacos and of course shucked to order Sydney Rock Oysters. The restaurant is also open for breakfast serving a modern Australian breakfast that blurs the line to a beautiful brunch.

    Rushed through in a 2 hour setting. Expensive outing for 2 hours. Would have be nice to relax & take our time. Oysters very small in size compared to The Wharf Restaurant next door. Too crowded with tables, packed in like sardines.

    Thought the 10% surcharge was over the top for a Saturday night when it was a $700 bill! Too many tables and chairs for the amount of staff. Staff were rushed and it felt uncomfortable.

    Definitely need to book ahead at this popular venue in Broome. We enjoyed our meals could have a few more choices of oysters on offer but understand probably not easy to source either. Highly recommend if staying at cable beach

    For a restaurant marketing itself for its seafood, the seafood options on the menu were very limited. Finely sliced scallops for entree & The main course barramundi were underwhelming. Price did not represent value for money. oysters & fish tacos entrees were very good as was cheesecake & icecream desert

    Although good it was not as welcoming as Sydney, nor does it have the fabulous view now. No prawns on the menu and we do really miss the Tamarind Prawns.

    Had 3 courses and all exceeded my expectations. Started with the salmon mouse followed by the Cone Bay Barra which was sensationally. Finally the deconstructed cheese cake… OMG it’s a must have to finish your meal. All washed down with a Purple Sunset Cocktail. When in Broome treat yourself to SOB.

    Food was fine but service was terrible. 4 of us ordered oysters for entree, 2 people were served the other 2 waited 20 more minutes then had to ask for one of the entrees which had apparently been forgotten. Drink orders were forgotten. Was told they had run out of a side dish then it was served to us! Prawn linguine and gnocchi were good. Fish was just ok. Expensive for what it was.

    Food wasn’t as expected for the price , pasta lacked flavor , no seasoning at all and only two scallops for entre of $24 I thought was a little stingy and we had requested good table for 80th birthday for our mother and we were stuck in the corner near the toilets so was a little disappointed

    2 scallops in entree dish for $24 or $26 needs urgent attention as there was nothing else going on in the bowl apart from a dressing.. Somebody in the kitchen got carried away with the mayo as both the cold lobster and fish&chips mains were drowning in it thus spoiling good seafood Prawn Toast outstanding

    Highly recommend the fish tacos and bao buns. Delish. The special - mushroom rissotto was very salty. So salty I couldn't finish it. Lobster pasta was delish. Once we ordered drinks we never saw the waiter again. Overall we'd still come back. On the pricey side - $200 for 2 persons - we didn't get dessert and only brought one alcoholic beverage.

    Very pretty restaurant with lovely outdoor area. Food is outstanding - wonderful oysters and the thread fin salmon exceptional. Salads were good and there is a nice wine list. Only issue was an error in the bill but that was corrected when we pointed it out.

    Our group of four were very much looking forward to dinner at the Sydney Oyster Bar after reading such strong recommendations We had been warned that service levels in Broome had suffered due to Covid and this was certainly the case on Thursday night. There appeared very little organisation throughout our meal with a number of staff servicing us. We had a 5 - 7pm sitting and had yet another staff member coming over and informing us that we need to leave – at 6:40 pm, essentially informing us that there was no time to order a quick desert. Not until we ordered our meal where we told that a couple of key menu items were not available, apparently due to a public holiday earlier that week. The most disappointing part was that our linguine dishes, both the squid ink and prawn linguine (the squid ink dish was a special on that night) were devoid of flavour. After so looking forward to a great dinner occasion .... It was so disappointing.
