You can’t help but notice the mast, rigging, and sails that mark this restaurant in a converted stone warehouse. It’s one of four in a row next to the water below the main spread of The Rocks, and it’s popular at lunchtime, when businesspeople snap up the best seats outside in the sunshine. At night, with the colors of the city washing over the harbor, it can be magical. You get a choice of mains such as steaks, mud crab, fish filets, and prawns. The seafood platter, at A$185 for two, includes lobsters, Balmain bugs (small, odd-looking crayfish), prawns, blue swimmer crab, oysters, mussels, fish, and smoked salmon. The food is simple and fresh, at prices that reflect the glorious location and views.
