Love seafood? You’ve come to the right place! Sydney is arguably the best seafood city in the world – freshness, diversity and smart chefs that know how to treat it right! Most of our top restaurants have seafood-heavy menus showcasing the great produce that’s caught locally and arrives by road and air from all over Australia. But we’re especially blessed with a few dedicated restaurants that make seafood their almost-exclusive focus.

It’s an occupational hazard that I eat quite a bit of outstanding seafood … for some of Australia’s finest seafood, innovatively prepared without compromising its pure, fresh flavour – here’s five restaurants you must try.
Saint PeterPaddington


www.saintpeter.com.auWho doesn’t love this tiny spot where fish whisperer Josh Niland brings out the best in every species with the lightest touch and thoughtful pairings. Deep-fried prawns, seared bonito with quandong and peas, and the best sardines on toast ever! Now there’s the Fish Butchery a few doors down too.

North Bondi FishBondi Beach

With Jesse McTavish on the pans, there’s a lot of skill behind the apparent simplicity at Matt Moran’s bustling seafood spot overlooking Bondi Beach. I love the whiting tacos with romesco, white cabbage & chipotle mayo. The whole snapper with papaya salad and prawn sangas are pretty good too!But first, let me apologise for popping into your inbox unannounced.

Cirrus DiningBarangaroo

Brent Savage’s creative combos take seafood to the next level: charred Fremantle octopus with yellow pepper, olive & chorizo; roasted prawns in house-made XO sauce; boned-out whole flathead for fancy fish’n’chips. Add Nick Hildebrandt’s superb wine pairings and I’m in heaven!
Boathouse on Blackwattle BayGlebe


www.boathouse.net.au
Sitting quietly above the Sydney Rowers Club for over 20 years, the Boathouse offers fabulous views of Anzac Bridge and Blackwattle Bay, a comprehensive oyster menu, that legendary snapper pie, friendly professional service and great wines by the glass – what’s not to love!

MoxheBronte

Whatever David Coumont loves at the Market lands on his menu. Raw spot prawns with blinis; seared bonito with cucumber & kohlrabi; yellowbelly flounder with capers & dill. All matched by his wife, Helen Diab’s, interesting wine selections. The 6-course $85 degustation is great value.
