Attended for Australia Day with seven friends. Location is perfect! Right from the onset it was evident that Security was enforced to ensure all patrons had a lovely day. Security were very friendly and professional at all times. Service from staff was exceptional especially due to the extreme hot weather. Food was average for pub food.The highlight of the day was the awesome band playing on the ground level. The Hard Rocking Amigos were absolutely amazing. They played and entertained patrons for hours without even taking the a break. The performance was one of the best we have ever seen and it was quite evident that everybody felt the same. Well Done Gentleman. Thank you. Also had the pleasure to meet the Licensee on the day who was an absolute Gentleman and went out of his way to ensure everyone enjoyed their day. Thank you to Management and staff for a fantastic day

I have been to The Harbour View Hotel four times in four months and impressed every time with great food and friendly service and awesome view. As well, I have met Brian, the owner, twice. Brian has been very helpful with his suggestions in helping me with organizing a high school reunion at The Harbour View Hotel.
05:34 29 Jan 18
My friends and I were there Australia Day... place was packed... staff were friendly, drinks were cold and free-flowing and the food was excellent! Thanks guys! 👌
09:04 27 Jan 18
I was there for lunch yesterday,Australia Day. I had intended on only stopping for a beer, as I’ve done in previous years on Aussie Day. The place was packed, so my friend & I asked to share a table with another couple in the dining room, staff pulled the tables apart for us, promptly set it with cutlery & napkins and handed us a couple of menus, all within a matter of minutes. Food orders & drinks were ordered across the hall at the bar,again although very busy & a small queue, I didn’t have to wait long to be served. Food followed about 15mins later, served to the table! It was was delicious and the beer went down well on a hot, humid Australia Day!!
02:29 27 Jan 18
Great views over the harbour and bridge from the roof terrace. Food reasonably priced and very tasty. Will definitely visit again.
13:51 04 Jan 18

04:38 30 Oct 17
We sampled the "Steak dinner for $12" offer (Mondays and Tuesdays). It was lovely.Eating on the roof terrace was great, albeit someone appears to have built a great big bridge between the Harbour and the Harbour View....The bar staff was great too. Really friendly. Top marks.
23:02 19 Sep 17
The Rocks always a great place to visit, love � it �
17:36 18 Sep 17
Relaxed as a lizard on a rock. This gem is got to be the best local pub with its veranda bar looking right at our bridge and the harbour with out the tourist price tag for a beer and wow the food.
08:59 17 Sep 17

The food was great and the band was excellent.
21:48 25 Apr 17
Love the place !! Barmen and others are really friendly and helpful for non locals. The food is excellent especially my favourite Coconut salt & pepper squid. From the peaceful Terrace Bar you can wave to the bridge climbers on their way down.
06:13 21 Apr 17
Very attentive staff. Nothing was too much of a problem. Complimentary drinks when they realized our food order hadn't been placed to the kitchen. Very generous & very apologetic. Thanks to the 2 barmen who took responsibility & acted beyond our expectations.
06:48 16 Apr 17
Rare, Genuine + Iconic Australian Pub with 'THE BEST VIEW' of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. My brothers + nephews love this one. A 'Must See' for anyone visiting the hot-spots in The Rocks.

09:17 16 Oct 16
Always a great stop on a tour of the harbour sights. Nice feel, good eats, cold drinks, friendly staff and the views,while not expansive, are a postcard of Sydney. Love it.
06:53 16 Oct 16
What a fabulous day on Saturday 15th for another school reunion, picture perfect day, the Harbourview had it all, arrived, Paul had roped off best seats with magnificent views for us, James & Mark served our drinks majority of day as we were there nearly all of their shift !!!!!

Great food beautiful views old sydney pub awsome!!
03:57 03 Oct 16
I wanted to have a look at this place as it is in the Australian movie "Star Struck". I was not disappointed. The views and hotel itself were worth the trek from Brisbane.
02:27 02 Oct 16
Great atmosphere. Can drop in for a late lunch as kitchen is open until 9pm. Awesome view. The place to be in summer!
06:28 22 Sep 16

Great meal & fantastic service & good prices
09:23 11 Sep 16
Walked in and a guy who looked like he was about 15 asked us for ID. I'm 29 years old, poor decision.Elevator didn't have much pace.Good Schnitty (tasted like KFC a bit), gravy was quality. Good value too.Good selection of beer.Didn't have mushroom sauce, apparently they tried it for two weeks but gave up - poor effort.Good views - tick. No music playing but I was on the balcony, that's a 50/50 call. I'll let it slide. I'll come back.
03:48 01 Sep 16
Fabulous view of the harbour, yummy food and fantastic staff. Highly recommend a visit.
06:45 31 Jul 16
Honest as the day is long! Thanks for getting my wallet back to me. Great place.

10:48 22 Jul 16
Upper level balcony bar has one of the most unique aspects of the harbour bridge, great view. Staff very friendly, range of food and drinks excellent. Highly recommend for small group gatherings on a sunny Sydney afternoon.
23:39 03 Jul 16
Great view and atmosphere a fantastic way to relax and take in the surrounds with a afternoon glass of wine.
04:29 20 May 16
Graham is the most accommodating host I've ever met, food was absolutely amazing and light on the stomach and pocket. Atmosphere was very nice and relaxing with a good view of the harbour. I really do recommend the Harbour view hotel to anyone for good value.
09:29 09 Apr 16
Really nice food, wonderful service and a lovely place for a recovery drink after doing the Sydney harbour bridge climb. Fantastic views of the bridge whilst relaxing with a cold beverage.
07:19 15 Jan 16

This is one of the best pubs in Sydney for food and views... Not to mention that my great great grandfather was the publican before it was moved from where the pylon was built for the Harbour Bridge to where it is today. Of course I'm going to give it five stars!
