Sydney NSW, Australia
Dining by the SeaOne of the most appealing aspects of the aquatic lifestyle in New South Wales is the number of restaurants on the water’s edge, where your fresh-caught entrée will be paired with ocean breezes. Phil Keoghan, host of The Amazing Race and Air New Zealand spokesman, recommends whetting your appetite with a visit to the source: the Sydney Fish Market. “This is where the best chefs in Sydney come to pick up their key ingredients,” he says. “It’s a good idea to follow them back to the kitchen and treat yourself to a tasty dish. I’m a big fan of Flying Fish Restaurant and Bar, but you will be spoiled for choices.”
In Sydney’s Circular Quay area, Altitude, Aqua Dining, and Café Sydney are a few perennial favorites; other nearby options include Catalina, at Rose Bay, and family-run Doyles on the Beach, at Watsons Bay. The same family has operated Doyles for five generations, serving up catch-of-the-day seafood from its location overlooking Sydney Harbour.
