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.

    Not quite the outstanding experience we had in August 2021. This time we had a good experience but the little touches were missing. Having said that it was the waitress' first night. Sydney Cove still leads the pack in WA dining (except for Miki's Open Kitchen) WA could learn a lot from this venue in terms of professionalism.

    Staff totally disorganised- staff should be allocated specific tables to serve and we booked over 4 weeks again and were allowed a 2 hour booking and when we arrived we were told we only had 1.5 hours- not good enough- would not and have not recommended

    A beautiful way to end the weekend. Lovely vibe with background live music. Couldn’t fault the service with lovely helpful staff. Enjoyed wines and cocktails, Italian burrata and loved the crumbed prawns. Be prepared for a high bill at the end but came away very relaxed and happy.

    Smallest Sydney Rock oysters ever seen!! The two Porterhouse steaks were chewy and numerous sinews that also made it difficult to cut. Service was very good. No real ambience or nice background music.

    Small menu which is not a bad thing. Slightly haphazard service made it hard to get anyones attention. Oysters were a little dry. Prawn special was good but messy. Bread and dip ok. Wine lovely. Expensive for what it was

    We shared the scallop entree which was wonderful. The lobster salad was really uninspiring unfortunately. Too much sauce and the lobster itself was boiled without any real interest. The barramundi dish was not bad. Understand the cost of business here but I wouldn’t go again.

    My husband had lobster salad and thought it was great he was happy I ordered the special, which was gnocchi, I think they bought the pre made packet from Woolies and added a bland sauce. …. Very very ordinary and disappointing

    This restaurant was highly recommended ,as a party of five catching up after sometime, we were excited for our night out. Menu choice was limited, wine list extensive but it’s quality that is the key. Food quality was good but we could have had the same at a local hotel. Just wasn’t above par unfortunately. The restaurant was busy and there seemed to be enough staff but attention to table service was average with little recognition of the tables needs. It was a nice meal ,we were just disappointed perhaps our expectations were too high .

    We went on a Wednesday night around 8.15pm. We’ve been to basically every other restaurant in broome and we LOVE seafood: hands down best seafood we’ve had in broome (live here and also holidays here over many years prior). We had the scallops with ponzu which gave Nobu a run for its money, the fish tacos (amazing) and the prawn linguine (also amazing). One of the biggest parts for us was the service on top given that it was a full restaurant at the time and we do often ask lots of questions etc. service top notch. 100% will go again :)
