Sydney Fish Market, Sydney

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market
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. Make Sydney Fish Market a part of your Sydney vacation plans using our Sydney trip generator.

  • Great fish food, all types of sea creatures are cooked on the spot. The only downside, for me at least, they do not take credit cards, cash only!  more »
  • Not much from the outside but a great place inside. They have all kinds of seafood raw and cooked! It's is a good place to people watch! The prepared food is excellent so this is a great stop if you l...  more »
  • The seafood is fresh, but both order to cook or ready to eat seafood taste average. I went on Saturday lunch time, can't find a place to sit. Ended up sit near to a smelly drain. There may be more var...  more »

  • You come here because of fresh seafood not for a clean table. Pick you seafood and ask them to cook it for you. Go with an open kitchen so you know that the seafood is yours
  • Fresh and good prices at the Fish Market. Some good bargains. You can eat in or take away. Queues can be long in some food places. When shopping from one shop to another, better wear close shoes the kind that you don't mind getting wet (floors at shops have puddles of water). I will not sugar coat it--PARKING & GETTING OUT OF PARKING is frustrating. And you have to pay for it. Public transport better I suppose (but you have to factor in how long it will take you to go home wih your purchases in tow).
  • Intresting place. Nice to see and buy fresh fish. Give Androtis cafe a skip though. Food is all premade and not really very nice.
  • Simply amazing place to eat drink, buy and just be around. Follow this instructions, 1. Look all the places where they sell fresh fish, (build your appetite) 2. grab a table 3. Head to your favorite spot and buy all kinds of fish either raw of cooked. 4. Buy a nice bottle of wine from the shop. 5. Look after the seagulls and don't feed them 6. Finish with some cheese and wine.
  • Very industrial, dirty, smells like diesel. no athmosphere, unfriendly, rushy, no view, stinky standing water. fish not as fresh as you would expect. disappointed. You might get all right fish to buy and cook at home but for me this fishmarket is not a place to stay and have a good time.
