Sydney Cove Oyster Bar - Circular Quay
Beautifully prepared fresh seafood eaten to the sound of the water lapping almost at your feet at this iconic waterfront destination. Perfect ambience as the sun sets behind the harbour bridge and Sydney sky scrapers. The staff are helpful and pleasant. I’d eat here every evening if I could.
We absolutely loved our dining experience. Great location, delicious food and attentive staff.
Beautiful beautiful food, everything was fresh, well cooked and not to mention tasted amazing. Lovely service from staff and a great location.
My only niggle is not having blankets (I know this could be due to COVID) - the heaters were lovely but with the strong wind and it being an outdoor place in Winter I felt a blanket would have added a bit of cosiness as we were still pretty cold.
As a recommendation, I put on the booking it was for a 30th birthday but there wasn't any mention of that during the booking which could have been a nice little touch to acknowledge it - Apart from that, 10/10 and cant wait to return!
Amazing. Me and my partner had such a lovely night!
Very good location but mediocre staff and food. The ambience and the the view is fantastic and quite romantic right by the sea and looking toward the harbour bridge. The noise is quiet so good if you are looking for a quiet place to dine.
But food is okay, not worth the price, especislly the Shellfish Platter, I recommend against it, just get 2 or 3 main course dishes instead. Staff doesn't have great service level, just your average waiter/waitresses.
Nice view but food is overpriced for the quality and portion. Seafood didn’t really taste fresh. Wouldn’t come back again as there are better seafood places in Syd
I booked this place for our anniversary dinner. The view was amazing and the food was fresh absolutely delicious it was a great night out definitely planning I’m going again
I love that place - my bouillabaisse was superb. We have been there many times and it was a fave with one of our parties parents when they cam over from the UK - many a night we’d have there when they were here. So we bought wine glasses as a momento ( although I wouldn’t mind the bouillabaisse recipe!!) loved it will be very sad when it’s closed. Thank you as always for a lovely dining experience xx
Food was absolutely amazing and perfect service to compliment it. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing perfect setting for a dinner for 2. Will definately be back!
We had a lovely time. The oysters were super fresh and the Prawns linguine was a great choice. Highly recommend.
Everything was pretty good but the steak was average it definitely wasn’t wagyu
Dinner was perfect.
Food was wonderful and the staff were so helpful and friendly.
Right on the harbour with the wonderful views that naturally come with such a setting. Wait staff were attentive and the food was great. We'll go back.
One of my favourite all time lunch venues and it didn’t disappoint this time.
I’m so sad the Oyster Bar may not be with us much longer. It will be sorely missed and nothing will be as good.
Excellent service a very personal experience
We have always loved coming here. Even in the pouring rain we had the most amazing service and lunch yesterday. The food is always outstanding and the oysters are so fresh.
Lovely food great value and the location is unbeatable
Beautiful views,delicious food and exceptional service
The Oyster Bar is always reliably good. Fabulous location and the staff are attentive but not intrusive. A regular go to for us.
We always enjoy our experience at the Sydney Cove Oyster House. We came here on our first date 27 years ago and have been coming back regularly. The oysters and sword fish were excellent on Sunday. We will be back soon. Liz n Bob
Nice place great view but way to expensive for seafood .
A beer garden on the harbour, prices reflect where you are but I love it.
The Oyster Bar is one of my favourite places in Sydney - fantastic iconic location, nowhere better for great food and wine. Eating a stack of oysters at this spot watching the sun move over the Quay with the bridge in the background is a must-do for whenever you visit Sydney.
The view is spectacular. The cocktails superb. The oysters delicious. Unfortunately, they lost our food order, it took a quick reminder to rectify and the rain was coming in.
I would definitely recommend!!
Food is always exceptional. Concierge was amazing as always and we highly recommend the dusk setting for a romantic evening.
A relaxed and friendly place to eat right on the water at Circular Quay. The food is excellent and while a bit on the expensive side, the service and views make it value for money. We eat here on a regular basis and have never been disappointed.
Three shared great food and service in an iconic location. Looking forward to another time at next location which I hope does it justice.
Overall the meal was very nice, however, part of our lobster was still frozen, which was quite disappointing.
The cocktails were good, and the service was amazing.
The service was amazing and the food was absolutely beautiful not to mention the perfect location. Highly recommend!
Amazing food and beautiful views, could ask for a better leisurely lunch.
We love it here. Fantastic food and service.
A dozen freshly shucked natural oysters, six grilled prawns with capers and crispy potato chips with a glass of cold reisling - the perfect lunch. Cool 18 degrees rose to 21, with lovely sunshine and a mild breeze. A finishing skim latte with service to smile for, on the edge of Sydney Cove. What more could you wish for. Sydney at it’s best.
Great spot. Excellent staff and food. Expensive. Menu limited.
We adore this restaurant. You can't pay enough for the harbour view which never disappoints. The menu was impeccable. We had calamari and octopus starters and the chilli seafood linguine paired with high quality wine which complimented our meal perfectly. Waiters were attentive and polite. Only thing I would say is the wine is very expensive at around 14 to 17 a glass.
Overall we love it and will hopefully continue to dine at this awesome restaurant.
Loved every aspect of our evening. Brilliant food and service in a beautiful setting.
Loved every moment of it! Amazing food, atmosphere and staff! Not to mention my online requests were met and went beyond my expectations!
Keep up the good work!
Amazing food and such a professional great service
Worth every dollar
The view and the sunset was awesome with a perfect view of the harbour bridge. It is great to watch the harbour ferries arriving and departing with the noise of their wash against the wall. The oysters were fantastic as were the Moreton Bay bugs, washed down with champagne.
Excellent food & service! Get location to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We will certainly go back again.
Great food, amazing views and brilliant service :)
