 A Striking Innovation at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar : Oyster Masterclass! 

The first oyster masterclass was successfully ran by hosting 16 food & travel influencers at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar. 12 different types of Australian oysters were served with perfectly matching hand-picked Semillon, Riesling and Sake by our wine sommelier Barnaby Fallows. It was a totally unique event which has never been tried in any similar venue before that we know of. 7 creamy, sweet, mineral tasting Sydney rock oysters followed by 4 salty, vegetal, crisp Pacific oysters and the final one was the native Australian mud flat oyster, the Angasi with a full rich flavour. We’re glad to see that everybody loved the taste of the oysters and learning how taste can vary from one region to another. We would like to thank Tim Dumbrell, Tom Rupnik and our head-chef Kris Swiecinski, general manager Laura Sanna and marketing manager Derya Uzum for running the event smoothly and being amazing hosts and also a big thanks to all guests for accepting our invitation and joining in on our first oyster masterclass. Stay tuned for the next masterclass!

We are proud to announce our achievement of being awarded 2 Glass (Excellent) Rating from Australia's Wine List of the Year Awards 2019!

Judges Review:

“We expect an iconic spot such as Sydney Cove's Circular Quay to have an outstanding bar: few would be disappointed with the list at this oyster bar / seafood restaurant. The focus is on bubbly, vibrant whites and lightly-framed delicious reds. There's an eclectic range of internationals with Aussies well-represented both by established superstars and promising newcomers. As long as the sun is shining, it's a fun place to be.”



Welcome to the Oyster Bar Kris!

Did you know we have a super talented new head chef leading the team at SCOB? His name is Kris (right) he's from Poland and has a world of international experience, most recently Fish Shop at Potts Point. The other superstar in the pic is our sous chef Hendra (left), ex Centennial and Paddington Hotels.


Winter warming cocktails hit our list

Not sure what it sounds like to mix vodka and wine but we did and it's stunningly gorgeous. Red Wine Vodka Kiss is a mix of Belvedere vodka, Cinzano rosso, Clarendelle red wine, lime juice, a cinnamon quill & rosemary, served on the rocks. This is just one of several winter creations from our gun bar team.


Australian truffle season has started

The truffle season has started in Australia and the Black Golds have just landed at the Oyster Bar from the Truffle Farm in Canberra. Believe it or not they are perfect on just about everything from oysters to desserts.  The season wont last long, so do yourself a favour and give them a go. 3 grams for only $18 to keep your taste buds happy...
