Sydney Cove Oyster Bar - Circular Quay
Excellent service and awesome views and atmosphere.
The staff were very attentive, especially as a thunderstorm was about to hit, they did everything possible to make sure we were under cover and kept dry. We all enjoyed our meals, the seafood was sensational. Thank you for a memorable evening.
The service was excellent, the seafood platter for two was exceptional, excellent variety , Tina was delish, oysters sweet , loved it all, great view and a lovely lunch. Thank you
Following a tour of the Sydney Opera House, we shared 2 dozen oysters (Anzacs were our favorite), grilled octopus, garlic bread & a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. We enjoyed it all while sitting in the edge of the harbor.
Scenic view but slow service.
Amazing setting great good and service. What else do you need for a great meal.
Food was average for the price you paid. However, the view was spectacular of the Harbour, definitely worth a visit. Staff were amazing, very quick service.
This is a great Quayside restaurant that maintains high standards. Our fish was excellent and so were the oysters.
The SCOB platter was delicious! The waitress was kind and helpful!
I recommend this restaurant!!
Wonderful way to celebrate a wedding anniversary.Brilliant view and as always excellent food with excellent service
Our romantic dinner was lovely, nice food selection however the tuna wasn’t fresh enough didn’t taste good.
Apart of all the service was helpful & polite at all times, definitely recommend this place for a cozy night.
The food and atmosphere were amazing! The cocktails were especially good. If anything the service could be slightly faster.
Enjoyed one of our favourite Sydney CBD Restuarants.
My go to restaurant when in Sydney, the food is always excellent as is the service & you can’t beat the view.
Stunning views with amazing food and lovely service
Unique experience. Well trained staff and delicious oysters!
Hot as western sun hits,had whiting tacos,way to chilli hot.Had Trouble with the waiters lack of English.Found strange at an Oyster bar the waiter did not know what a natural oyster was and had to get a different waiter.
Selection of oysters was varied and it was nice to be able to create our own plate to try them all. Our seafood selections - barramundi and prawn pasta were delicious. The setting can't be beat - even during a brief rain shower. Service - top notch.
My daughter recommended the Oyster Bar - she takes her overseas visitors there. Could not have had a more perfect evening. At first I thought the food was a bit pricey but had to admit our meals where absolutely delicious, worth every cent and the weather stayed fine which was a huge bonus with a table for two overlooking the quay and the water. What I call a lovely evening. Highly recommend.
Fantastic! Thank you very much! Would love to come back.
Thought the overall experience was over hyped . View and location excellent. Oysters very fresh so enjoyed the natural ones, the Kilpatricks were average. Ordered the Tuna which was on special but was chewy and unflavoursome , didnt slice cleanly and simply so not sure that it was fresh. The Barramundi was nice though . Chip and salad sides sort of club/bistro level. No desert and just had a Machiatto that was more of a piccollo capuccino so they dont make it properly. One glass of Margaret River Chardonnay and one 4 Pines Pale ale all up $220. Maybe eat somewhere else and then go for a walk down there
The service was amazing. The food is great. Simply having great staff adds a huge part of any business’ success . Fabio was one of the best waiters I have come cross in my international experience of dinning. Front desk MD wasn’t the best and she couldn’t find our booking and only to find out she has not paid attention.
Fabio made the experience greater than em all !
This is one of the best restaurants I have been too. Great views, awesome atmosphere and incredible seafood. If you like fresh, well prepared seafood then you are in for a treat! Really accommodating for my mothers birthday celebration too!
Always a wonderful evening with beautiful food and scenery ❤️
My fourth visit confirms my opinion that the location, service, food and wine are all excellent and worth the price paid
What better way to enjoy a seafood platter than overlooking the harbour bridge on circular quay. Wait staff were attentive but not overbearing. The quality of the food was outstanding. Good wine list. We ate there with our 10 year old son and he was made to feel very welcome. We had a fab table right on the harbour edge (not sure if that’s because we booked in advance). Outdoor setting so weather made a difference. I cannot fault this restaurant and would definitely recommend if visiting circular quay and looking for a relaxed vibe.
A wonderful spot to sit, sip and dine looking at the harbour bridge and all the harbour activities
Can’t be beat for seafood!!
Spur of the moment decision and lucky to get a table for 4. Beautiful food and fantastic service from staff. We live in between Portland and Wallerawang and every chance we get to escape, the Oyster Bar has been one of our favourite eating spots to go too....
The evening we spent at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar was one of my favorite memories in Sydney! Amazing food with a view to remember. Service was as good as it can be! This place is incredible!!!
Had the best table
Service was worth tipping
Food was great
Will go back again and try an evening meal
Great menu and venue. Service is good.
Great food, services and ambience. Would definitely come again.
Excellent venue. Disappointing service on the day plus 50% bill paid in cash caused a problem as no record of it when we were leaving. Had to have several discussions with the manager in order to reassure him we had paid in full.
The oysters were full of shell pieces. The prawn main had a funny taste. The service was poor. Waitress cranky and you got the impression she didn’t want to be there. Tables crammed. Very noisy. Prices just keep going up and up. Won’t be back!!
A lovely location which is let down by average food and service matching the food. Pricey for what you get, as one would imagine in that location.
My family and I - wife and 2 daughters - had dinner at the Oyster Bar. It was a really nice. Firstly, the seafood is really amazing - we had Moreton Bay Bugs, Sushi, Mussels, and of course the Oysters - perfectly cooked, very tasty. My daughters enjoyed fish & chips and pasta from the kid's menu, and they were happy too. The service was really good, just the right amount of checking-in with us, to some conversation, and when the girl's got a little bit cold sitting on the Harbour, the staff brought some blankets for them. I think the highlight was when the waiter brought out a watergun with the sushi and gave it to my youngest daughter and told her to shoot the seagulls so they can't attack the sushi!! Highly recommended, thank you. *L*
Our experience was ruined by the attitude of our waiter (I think his name was Mario - young, bearded Italian). He was not only rude, smug and condescending, but (by his own admission) he stuffed up our order without any offer of compensation.
Perfect place for a very good time!! Staff is very nice, a wonderful view of the harbour, food tasty... A bit expensive, but we do pay the location too. We recommand and will come back!
