Sydney Opera House turns back the clock



Sydney's famous Opera House will have fish and chips on the menu this summer with the opening of The Harbour, a pop-up eatery on the Opera House’s northern boardwalk.

The eatery will serve sustainably-sourced fresh seafood, chips along with takeaway classics like potato scallops, and one of the best views in Australia's biggest city.

Opening on Wednesday, January 4, The Harbour aims to transport visitors back to the retro 80s as it recreates the original seafood restaurant that operated in the same location from the late 80s to the early 90s.

The new pop-up - open for four weeks only - will pay tribute to the original eatery with chequered tablecloths, picnic tables and historical projections of the original restaurant.

Executive chef Lee Thompson says the menu will feature fish burgers, seafood platters and grilled prawns, while a picnic-ready takeaway menu is perfect for harbourside al fresco dining.

The bad news: the prices will not be those of 50 years ago.

“The Opera House precinct is a buzzing location over summer and we’re excited to introduce a new pop-up experience as part of our 50th anniversary program," says Sydney Opera House Chief Customer Officer Jade McKellar.

"The Harbour is a vibrant new eatery that brings together classic fish and chip fare with the striking harbour views of its northern waterfront location. 

"Along with our summer performances and renowned harbourside dining venues: Portside, Opera Bar, House Canteen and Bennelong, the Opera House is a must-visit summer destination for locals, visitors, theatre-goers and families."

The pop-up will run until February 3, operating Tuesday to Saturday from midday to 8pm.

Bookings are highly recommended, with some space reserved for walk-ins
