From Qualia to the shores of Sydney – seafood lovers meet your newest catch: Harbourfront Seafood Restaurant Sydney.

Sydneysiders love to relish in gastronomic seafood banquets and, self admittedly, waterfront dining experiences. This is where The Rocks’ newest seafood restaurant hooks you with their offering of fresh local seafood in one of Sydney’s most luxurious, prime locations, the Campbell’s Stores.

Overlooking Sydney Harbour and sitting what almost feels like a touch away from the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Harbourfront Seafood Restaurant Sydney encapsulates the beauty of what this magical city has to offer in a combination of fine dining fare, amazing produce and a venue that lets the important things do the talking.

Apart from boasting jaw-dropping views, amidst the clinking glasses and the towers of seafood, Harbourfront’s venue embraces The Rocks’ heritage with a simple yet appeasing ambience. Featuring original sandstone walls that date back to 1799, Harbourfront Seafood Restaurant Sydney furnishes tables with crisp, white linen tablecloths to ensure that the seafood-heavy dishes make a splash on your space.

As for the menu, Sydney seafood lovers will fall into a deep sea of gastronomic excellence thanks to head chef Craig Knudsen’s (formerly Qualia) Asian and Mediterranean influence with the likes of Kingfish Carpaccio ($28), Crispy Skin Atlantic Salmon ($39) and, of course, Harbourfront’s famed Grilled Moreton Bay Bugs ($85) taking centre stage.

“I don’t want to get locked into being influenced by any one cuisine. The seafood is the hero of almost all the dishes and the flavours and techniques are there to complement, not dominate. The only thing you won’t find in my kitchen at Harbourfront is frozen seafood, that’s a no-go,” said Knudsen. 

With a sea-to-plate focus, couples, families and friends will be towering over Harbourfront’s expansive selection that’s perfect for any occasion. Whether that be date nights, family celebrations or catch-ups with friends, Harbourfront Seafood Restaurant takes the bite when it comes to being titled as the best seafood restaurant in Sydney. And, with that, their Cold & Raw Seafood Platter ($150) or their Hot & Cold Seafood Platter ($235) certainly proves to be a highlight for any festivity.

Using the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge as their backdrop, Harbourfront Seafood Restaurant will never fail to impress Sydneysiders and travellers alike.

Accepting bookings and walk-ins, Harbourfront Seafood Restaurant Sydney boasts a 300-seat capacity that’s perfect for guests to be in awe of the direct views of some of Sydney’s greatest assets. With fresh, locally sourced seafood and a pristine waterfront location, guests cannot go wrong when it comes to Sydney’s newest seafood restaurant to hit our shores.
