Whether you’re relaxing on the Promenade with a spritz in hand or savouring every morsel of a world class meal, you’ll be making happy memories at Cockle Bay Wharf.

Alfresco Dining

Sydney isn’t one to let a pandemic get it down – so your favourite Darling Harbour venues have come together to create an iconic outdoor dining experience that transforms our waterside into an alfresco haven – Cockle Bay Wharf included! Our famous waterfront venues will be extending onto the Promenade to allow for more guests in a safe, fun and socially distanced setting. This means you can get your family, friends or colleagues together for fun under the sun (and even closer to the water) in comfort and style – found only in the world’s greatest harbour city.

Sydneysiders will be treated to delicious cocktails and bespoke menu selections from fine seafood to classic Australian favourites. Whether you’re after the perfect cold one or sizzling hot steak, there’s outdoor fun to be had with us.

Pontoon Bar is a Sydney staple for waterfront meals, with a menu featuring starters, pub mains and woodfired pizza. Complete the occasion with an ice-cold beer or jug to share. Explore their range of summery cocktails created for Sydney’s fun-loving locals as you drink the day away by the harbour.

I’m Angus Steakhouse proudly serve Sydney’s top grain fed beef. Their team of talented chefs prepare and cook your steak to order, while their wait staff help you with wine pairings and complementing sides. 

Adria Bar Restaurant boasts a menu packed full of flavour, drawing inspiration from across the globe. Enjoy their Mediterranean inspired seafood, Australian beef or Italian pasta with confidence from the water’s edge this summer – along with your favourite cocktail or two!

Nick’s Seafood is a Sydney institution - specialising in the best seafood cuisine hand-picked daily from the Sydney Fish Market, to ensure freshness and quality. Indulge in oysters and champagne, lobster and sauvignon blanc, or barramundi and beer this summer as they take over the Promenade.
