Pier One Sydney Harbour unveils Pier Dining, a culinary, harbourside gem.

12 May 2024


In the heart of Sydney’s iconic Walsh Bay, the renowned Pier One Sydney Harbour is set to unveil its latest culinary offering – Pier Dining. Slated to open its doors on 1 May 2024, this new restaurant promises to captivate the discerning palates of First Class Magazine‘s readers with its seafood-driven menu, warm Australian hospitality, and a unique connection to the city’s maritime heritage.

“For the past eight years, Pier One Sydney Harbour has led with fine-dining degustation and chef-selection menus,” states Pier One Sydney Harbour General Manager, Kim Mahaffy.

“After listening to our guests and the local community, we have evolved the restaurant to celebrate a more casual and relaxed style of dining, leading with an à la carte menu, or a feed-me menu for those wanting to take the hassle out of ordering.”

Helming the kitchen of Pier Dining is Chef de Cuisine Dimitri Damman, a rising culinary talent hailing from France. Boasting a wealth of expertise from working in esteemed international restaurants, Damman has honed his skills under the tutelage of Australia’s best chefs at Pier One since 2015, ensuring that the restaurant’s legacy of showcasing emerging culinary stars remains at the forefront.


Situated in the heart of the Walsh Bay creative precinct, Pier Dining offers a captivating connection to the harbour through its prime location right on the water. Diners will be treated to a menu that weaves in the story of an underwater forest that thrives beneath the historic beams stretching 30 metres into the sea, with nods to the seaweed and maritime heritage woven throughout the decor and garnishes.

The seafood-driven menu at Pier Dining features produce from nearby shores, offering refreshing takes on familiar favourites. Standout dishes include the King George Whiting Parmi and the Campanelle Carbonara with Home-Cured Kingfish Collar, showcasing the culinary team’s commitment to showcasing the best of Australia’s bountiful coastal offerings.

The real star of the menu, however, is the Sydney Rock Oyster, available freshly shucked with mignonette or charred with smoked wagyu fat and coconut vinegar – a true celebration of the region’s renowned seafood. And for those seeking a truly immersive dining experience, the signature dish, Queensland Coral Trout with Green Mango, Chilli, Ginger and Coriander, is served up tableside, adding a touch of theatre to the proceedings.

In keeping with Pier One Sydney Harbour’s dedication to celebrating Australian design, Pier Dining has collaborated with Sydney-based companies Defy Designs and Dinosaur Designs to introduce environmentally friendly coasters and seaweed salt jars, further enhancing the restaurant’s connection to its maritime surroundings.

With its seafood-driven menu, warm Australian hospitality, and a unique connection to the city’s rich maritime history, Pier Dining is poised to become a must-visit destination. This harbourside culinary gem is set to redefine the dining experience in Sydney, offering a seamless blend of modern sophistication and timeless charm.
