A restaurant we have been wanting to go to for many years is Flying Fish in Pyrmont. We happened to be in need of dinner while we were in Pyrmont recently and decided to make our way over.
Flying Fish is located in Pyrmont, at the end of a heritage wharf, with views of the Harbour Bridge, Barangaroo, Balmain and the lower north shore. This makes for a dramatic backdrop to dinner as the sun sets and the city lights start turning on.
The heritage look is continued inside with the original dark beams incorporated in to the interior design. Dark woods are very much in evidence throughout the space and are softened by the crisp white tablecloths and the large modern painting along one wall.
There is some seating outside as well, perfect for a sunny day. You can also sit outside and dream about being on one of the luxury boats moored along the wharf.
After a look at the wine list we decided on a half bottle of Chablis from Domaine Louis Moreau. Mr CA4G is a bit picky with white wines and he absolutely loved this one.
Choosing a main was easy for Mr. CA4G, he hadn’t tried Murray cod before so that was his choice. He enjoyed his Murray Cod very much and was surprised that it didn’t have much of a muddy flavour to it, seeing as it is a fresh water fish.
I had a lamb backstrap with whipped feta, lamb sausage and peas. Loved the whipped feta, it is on my list of things to try at home. We also ordered a leaf salad and hand cut chips.
It was well worth the walk from the city to have dinner at Flying Fish and we look forward to dining there again in the future.
