Sydney Cove Oyster Bar - Circular Quay
For the most delectable and inventive seafood dishes in New South Wales, enjoy a meal at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar for an unforgettable experience. For an ideal start to your meal, relish the brandade fish croquettes with fresh herb mayo and the chili and tamarind-spiced tiger prawns with spring onion and lime juice. Some of Sydney Cove Oyster Bar's larger plates include the grilled Atlantic salmon with smoky eggplant puree, shaved almonds and pomegranate reduction, the shellfish platter laden with Hervey Bay scallops with chili pineapple salsa, oysters, prawns, blue swimmer crab and marinated mussels and the surf and turf combination meal with Tajima wagyu rump steak and scampi in a crme au jus, perfect with a glass of wine.
Be sure to nab a seat on the outdoor patio where, day or night, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the harbor while enjoying your meal.
Great food in a delightful setting! The service was excellent and the staff very attentive. The weather wasn't great when we visited but the staff really looked after us with heaters and blankets, helping to make it a very memorable evening. Can't be a better location to enjoy seafood and oysters!
I love this place the food and service is first class. It can be a bit windy here so rug up but well worth a visit. AAA+++
Always enjoy dining at Oyster Bar. Its location is quintessential Sydney and I love that it sits right beside the harbour open to all the busy ferry and pedestrian traffic. The small share plates are a perfect size and the fish tacos especially delicious. Thank you once again a fabulous meal.
My partner and I had an amazing week night at Sydney Cove. Great atmosphere and service. We will definitely come back.
Got squeezed into a table and my chair kept getting hit by the person sitting next to me.
When we asked earlier for another table, we were told that it was not available, but no one was sitting there?
Later on another people came and took the table, not sure why we could not get it.
Anyway, food was ok, although the oyster was absolutely delicious. Both Barramundi and Tasmanian Salmon were bit under seasoned and dry.
Ambiance would have been so much better had my chair not kept getting hit.
Perfect if you want to eat seafood with the best view in Sydney
Loved the location, very friendly staff and food was great
Sydney Cove Oyster Bar is one of our favourite places to go!
The best location on the harbour! Great service! Not too expensive considering the location!
Yes would absolutely recommend!
Amazing oysters! Great variety in the menu and perfectly executed. Service great too! Will be back.
Ring first, travel 5 hrs for a birthday dinner to be told out of stock at 6:30 on a Saturday and the replacement choice wasn’t that great, we left about 50% of both meals.
Next time I would like to not be as squashed in and required to sit facing away from my partner
Food was fantastic and the view is second to none. Excellent selection of gluten free meals.
the ambiance and location is fantastic but the food was ordinary. The lobster wasn't cooked all the way through and at $170 each i expect alot more. The staff apologized and did offer to help but the offer of 1 balmain bug was nice but dry. It is definitely over priced even with the wonderful location.
Good place for lunch. Well positioned by the harbour. Service could have been better. In spite of having booked we were seated in a location that was cramped, difficult to access and close to the bathrooms. Staff were very obliging when we requested we be reseated. Generally a nice afternoon
Fabulous view and good, if moderately pricey food.
the mussels were served lukewarm. After the complaint, they were again served lukewarm. I have waived the 10% discount.
Fantastic food and service. Really enjoyed it. The seafood hotpot was awesome. Great location and scenery. Would highly recommend.
I certainly will recommend it to a friend because I think it is one of the best restaurants in Sydney with excellent food, service and ambience not to mention the position and the view.
Great service, food and view. Really enjoyed ourselves, we will be back.
Great spot for pre show dinner. Oysters were incredible and staff very attentive.
This was our second visit to this lovely waterfront restaurant - and what a view! The food was amazing, especially the Tuna Tartare, which was one of the daily specials. Our waiters were very good and made great recommendations. Can't wait for our next visit!
We ate at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar before seeing a musical at the Sydney Opera House. Our waiter was excellent -- attentive and helpful. The setting (overlooking the Sydney Harbour) was beautiful, and the food was excellent.
Food wasn't the best we've had during our trip, but was tasty. We thought there would be more 'surf' to the surf&turf and were sad to see two prawns on top. Service was fantastic, and the view was gorgeous!
Amazing food and atmosphere and excellent service from all the staff!
On the whole a fantastic experience. Good service, great food in a great location.
Food was tasty though for what you pay,is definitely not value for money.
Service was excellent though.
Yes I would. The service was very good and the food was great
View was easily unbelievable because of location. The staff couldn’t do enough for you. From the minute you sat down they made sure you were looked after and relaxed. Food was amazing with honest recommendations based on our likes. Drinks were spot on to match our food. We were served by three different staff and they were all exceptional.
Great setting. Service attentive but not pushy. Food good but seafood chowder a little bland.
Good as always. The special seafood chowder was not good value at $38. There was one prawn, one clam and the rest was white fish. Feel it could have been a better dish for that price. But overall another good meal.
Alerted server about food allergies and although he told the kitchen 3 separate times to make my sons entree dairy free it came out sautéed in butter and my son ate it and
Realized it contained butter. The food was delicious but we were so disappointed and upset that they served his entree containing dairy.
The restaurant went above and beyond for us for our anniversary with service and a great seat. Food let us down a little and value for money, but it didn't spoil the night.
Beautiful location overlooking Sydney Harbour.
Great view of Sydney..how better to enjoy Sydney Harbour then with oysters and champagne..
A very good diner in the wonderful circular quay by night. Sympathie service.
Celebrated in style with a delicious meal and gorgeous harbour view. Excellent staff can not wait to return.
To be honest what we spent was not worthy with the food we got. The taste of my octopus was a bit of carbon and my boyfriend ordered king prawns without flavour. The view is beautiful, the place is comfortable and the service was good as well but I was expecting delicious food.
Love this place! We always dine here prior to watching a show at Sydney Opera House. The oyster shots are amazing!
It was just very cold, not their fault . They did fire up a heater right next to us and provided blankets to help defray the cold
