My husband and I had our dinner date here. I wasn't sure how I wanted my wagyu steak, so I just said medium rare. When the waitress learned that my wagyu steak was tough, she got me a free milkshake! That was a wonderful gesture. My husband and I think that his meat dish was more delicious than mine. I... More

Service was the greatest downfall for us not the food! It's not the cheapest place to eat in Darling Harbour and unfortunately we were served mainly by a totally unmotivated waitress during our Sunday lunch. To be fair to the other staff, they were friendly and we'd wished they had been at our table more. The food was nice and... More

Looks out over Darling Harbour and I can't complain about the meals - they were quite filling. The service was quick and the waitresses attentive.

I was taken to Plate Restaurant Darling Harbour on a Saturday night for my birthday and it was a wonderful night. We were seated outside and although it was a freezing winter night,we weren't cold at all,as they have those very warm gas heaters placed generously around and throughout the seating area. We had a great view of the harbour... More

We had a light lunch there. We had the Tempura battered Barramundi and Salt and Pepper Calamari. Servings were generous and the fish fresh. No complaints about the service.

We were only offered 2 options with vaucher so 4 of us end up getting repeated selection. Apparently this was not very promising at the beginning. On the other side I have to admit the food served was good. Steak was juicy and tender, quality wayu you can tell. Plus points also includes the water front feature, more then 1/2... More

This restaurant has a great location but as an overall dining experience, not that great. We had lunch here. I ordered something from the specials board advertised out the front of the restaurant & my boyfriend ordered from the menu. Overall it was ok but nothing to really rave about.

Been here a few times before and really liked the stuffed chicken so me and my girlfriend decided to revisit the place today. We decided to give the chicken supreme a go and after a 15 minute wait we got our food. As I was cutting up the chicken I noticed that the color of the meat had a tinge... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighbourhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
