This October, the Sydney Opera House celebrates 50 years of being an internationally renowned Australian icon — and it's pulling out all the stops for a year-long festival to honour its past, present and future. This month, the legendary landmark will pay homage to a beloved figure of its past with The Harbour, a four-week outdoor pop-up restaurant inspired by the original seafood diner that operated in the same location from the late 80s to the early 90s.

Open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 12–8pm, The Harbour will be plating up classic fish and chips from the Yallamundi Rooms on the Opera House's Northern Broadwalk. Head down for a leisurely lunch or date night with a difference and tuck into Executive Chef Lee Thompson's menu of sustainably sourced fresh seafood, crisp-fried fish, crunchy golden chips and other takeaway classics like potato scallops, all backdropped by one of the very best views in Sydney. Or, level up with a seafood platter, fish burger or a plate of grilled prawns.

As well as the unbeatable surrounds, The Harbour will feature chequered tablecloths, picnic tables and historical projections of the original restaurant. There's also a picnic-ready takeaway menu, perfect for when you want to find your own spot in one of the nearby harbourside gardens.

The Harbour is popping up at the Sydney Opera House from January 4 to February 3 (but is closed on January 26). For more information, head to the website.
