Sydney Fish Market, Sydney

3.8
#2 of 63 in Shopping in Sydney
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.

  • Fish Market Cafe... Not impressed with the service. Firstly paid for meal using a $100 dollar note, Cashier immediately stored the note away and gave significantly less change (missing $50+ - thought ...  more »
  • The fish market is not located in Chinatown although the majority of sellers and customers are Asian. Big doubt on the origin of fish and shellfish, come from Asia or Australia, short of Australasia. Prohibitive prices, dirty to do tables as once because very disappointed. We would expect anything else, including a bigger market. The final bit stands for repetitive products and the shamefully small oysters that it happened. The overexploitation of resources is felt. Walked to do... or not!

  • Had given up in a foreign country, even sushi, eat only sushi, but in yori取ri見取ri, such as fish, eel, seafood Bowl, where fresh seafood is eaten, was relieved to be honest. Please try again.

  • Very nice market with lots of variety. You can get just about anything you’re craving and a few additional extra specials as well. I prefer to buy raw and cook at home but there are plenty of cooked food options you can enjoy there, although good luck finding a seat and table. Particularly enjoy the fresh fruit and veg vendor if not a little expensive
  • My wife and I loved the Fish Market. It's decently priced, with a laid back atmosphere. The staff member at the bottle shop was quite rude, but that didn't get us down because the seafood tasted amazing and it was a great overall experience. Whether you're a tourist or a local, I completely recommend adding the Fish Market to your visit list.
  • It is great place for seafood lovers. I found paid parking. Little troubles of finding right parking spot but it was worth it. Location is great and staff is very friendly and helpful. I went with clients I work with. They’ve enjoyed lunch. Food presentation came out awesome and treated like five stars restaurants food. I suggest that definitely to try seafood baskets.
  • Sydney Fish Market it's the best place to try fresh Sea Food and enjoy a lovely meal with a view. Try to avoid weekends and pick times, like 12pm. And of course, watch out for birds, in one second they can take your food from you. There is also a store that sells fruits covered by chocolate. It's delicious. Must try.
  • Love this place. Can't get enough of that fresh seafood. Prices are very competitive & it pays to visit all the seafood outlets before you buy. The only down side is that there aren't enough chairs and benches to sit & eat. So it pays to get there early.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
