What seafood is Sydney most renowned for?

Popular recommendations include oysters, crab, red snapper and baby octopus. Ordering a seafood platter is a great way of trying many different types of fish at the same time.

At Sydney Fish Market you'll find possibly the largest variety of fresh seafood in Australia. Open every day apart from Christmas, it trades more than 100 different types of sustainable seafood species daily and exceeds 500 varieties in total each year. Seafood restaurants across Sydney regularly access this market, which gives you an idea of the variety you'll find on their menus.

Which are the best seafood restaurants in Sydney?

A list of the best seafood restaurants in Sydney is a reassuringly long one but if there's just one place that springs instantly to mind, it's Doyles on the Beach. This is an institution and one of the city's oldest, opening in 1885. Located at Watsons Bay, it has a sumptuous menu, including Barramundi fillet, whole lobster and baked snapper.

Among the other excellent seafood restaurants to visit are:

  • The Boathouse – on Blackwattle Bay. Go there for its oysters but also the mesmeric views across the bay.
  • Blue Fish – in Darling Harbour. Dine on buckets of succulent prawns sourced from Sydney Fish Market. Enjoy a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc and fresh prawns with squeeze of lemon.
  • Baygarden restaurant – in Brighton-Le-Sands. This all-you-can-eat buffet puts it firmly in the bracket of one of the best seafood restaurants in Sydney. Tuck into rock oysters, lobster, scampi and crab, and load up with seafood paella and salad, too. You won't leave hungry.
  • Flying Fish – in Pyrmont. Established in 2004, Flying Fish continues to occupy a place on the elite list of Sydney seafood restaurants. Under the guidance of executive chef Peter Robertson, it serves exquisite dishes such as Moreton bay bug tortellini, scallops and BBQ mirror dory.

What are the benefits of eating seafood?

Seafood can help you maintain a healthy heart, reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes, lower cholesterol and boost your brain's function. Regularly eating seafood has several important health benefits:

  • Low in fat and cholesterol, making it a healthier choice than many processed foods.
  • High in protein, boosting muscle growth, maintenance and repair.
  • Loaded with vitamins and minerals, including Omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep organs healthy.

Is seafood expensive?

It mostly depends on where you choose to eat it – and what you order. Some of the more exclusive seafood restaurants in Sydney might be best reserved for special occasions, although there are many that cost a lot less.

Choose a whole lobster in a top-class restaurant and you'll probably pay heavily for the privilege. Browse seafood restaurant deals in the city and you're sure to find cheap seafood restaurants in Sydney to suit your budget.

Prawns, scampi, squid, scallops, barramundi, salmon and lots more seafood dishes are relatively inexpensive – but that shouldn't stop you branching out and trying something a little higher end now and then. With so many seafood restaurant deals available in Sydney, there's somewhere to suit all budgets.
