Sydney Fish Market, Sydney

3.8
The world's third largest seafood market, Sydney Fish Market incorporates a working fishing port, a wholesale fish market, a fresh seafood retail market, a sushi bar, gift shop, a fruit and vegetable market, a beverage outlet, indoor seating, and an outdoor promenade. There's so much to do and see here that most tourists opt to join an official tour. Contact the market's management ahead of time to organize a behind-the-scenes tour of the popular wholesale seafood auction. You can also drop by on a rainy day for a meal of fresh sushi and sashimi, for which the market is renowned across Australia. Keep in mind that the sushi bar gets extremely busy during lunchtime, so it's best to visit earlier in the morning to avoid crowds and take advantage of indoor seating.

  • The third largest fish market in the world, you take full eyes, small restaurant inside the market, I advise you to buy a bottle of wine to accompany your meal in a wine store inside the market, they you even provide the glasses.

  • I went by light rail. I bought salmon and lobster and ate them on the terrace. The image is close to Fisherman's Wharf, a port town in the United States and Canada. There is a liquor shop inside, so I thought it would be better to procure sake there. There is also a bottle opener in front of the store. I heard that there are many Chinese people, but there were not more than I expected. However, there are a lot of birds such as seagulls and pigeons anyway.

  • The outdoor area is dirty and uncomfortable because of the wild birds, the food is good.

  • Always a great place to have lunch with your loved ones. Be sure to get there early for great food and also indoor seats! The birds outside can be a bit aggressive when they see you with fresh chips. Parking is good but it can also be a bit crowded at times. There's a wide variety of restaurants to choose from. Great view if you sit outside on the deck.
  • A busy and bustling place to visit. Lots of sea food sellers and shops though all see to have the same stuff. We saw crates of iced fish, so not sure if the stuff served is fresh fish. Also try the cliff walk ( Google) about 10 minutes which gives a stunning view of part of the city.
  • Pretty neat place to go. I was interested in seeing all the food preparations they made at the market to sell. They serve some pretty cool and uniquely designed options, like the sushi donut and sushi taco (see photos). If you take your food outside the market, you get a view of the water, boats and the Anzac Bridge. Directions: For fun and a view, I took the ferry from Milton’s Point at Luna Park, to Pyrmont, in Darling Harbour. Then I walked to the fish market, about 12 minutes from Darling Harbour. On the way back, I left the fish market from the dock area and went across the street, down Wattle Street. When you come to the bridge you can find the *light rail to Central Station*, on the left-hand side. You’ll see a small ramp/stairs that lead you to the train, through the small park greenery.
  • I always get nice vibe in here. You can visit some fish shops and see all kind of sea food. It's good for shopping for sea food but I found that it is not good for dining. It's expensive and usually deep fried. There is a very nice shop for vegetables. They usually have fresh product. They have a good range of spices. Fish market also has a nice outside seating area, but in weekend it is always crowded. It might be a little too hot as well. But if you find a nice place under shade, you can enjoy eating your food and watch bay. There are also seagulls which tries to steal your food. Don't feed them, that's what they recommend. There is also a big parking area.
  • NO ONE who enjoys seafood should miss visiting the fish market when in Sydney, this is truly a dream come true for seafood. It is not five star dining, in fact a bit of a free for all trying to get seats around the outside dining area by the water. BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE THE FOID IS FIVE STAR *****. If it swims in the ocean I bet it is for sale her, either to take home or enjoy by the waters side. This is a working market so a lot of vehicle movements. Just go visit.
