Ambiance: - great view of the beach - seats next to water, wave water can splash up to tables - plenty of seating, space and shade Service: - friendly, but the person helping us was not extremely knowledgeable as we asked many questions that couldn't be answered Food: - some of the best tasting oysters I've ever had - beer was okay Notes: - 10% weekend surcharge Recommend: - can't go wrong with any oyster
We stopped here on our way to the Sydney Opera House for a little bite to eat.  We had the fresh fish combination plate, served sushi style, and found it to be remarkable.  All the fish were fresh and very, very tasty, as well as being served appropriately and with a finesse one would expect from a world class operation. If you're fortunate enough to be there at sunset, watch the skies overhead for the bats.  They are large.  They are spectacular. I believe them to be fox bats.  It's really a phenomenal experience, as a prelude to a concert in the best venue I've ever experienced. Don't postpone joy......
After a long morning of walking across the Sydney Harbor Bridge, my husband and I were looking for a nice place to relax and eat lunch. Sydney Cove Oyster Bar was located right off the harbor on the way to the Sydney Opera House, which was our next destination. You get to enjoy the beautiful view of the bridge without the hustle and bustle of tourists.   This is an outside establishment, but do not worry, each table is covered by an umbrella. The weather was absolutely perfect when we had lunch. We were immediately seated when we arrived. The staff were very friendly, but the service was slow despite the few people that were also dining there. You must get the oysters! They're fresh and clean. We prefer the Pacific oysters, but try them all if you can. I love how they actually label each oyster when they serve it to you. The fish and chips are also delicious too. It's probably the best fish and chips that I have ever had. This isn't your average, American fish and chips. The fish was light, fresh and crispy. The fries are also nice and crispy. The serving size is actually large. Get a nice glass of white wine or beer and sit back and relax. I highly recommend everyone to grab a bite here. It's a little pricey, but you'll definitely have a good time. Make sure that you plan your time accordingly because service is slow.
