Salmon & Bear Overview

Nestled on bustling King Street in Newtown Sydney, Salmon & Bear brings you a fish lover’s oasis. With earthy tones, dark wooden tables and dimmed lighting, this trendy hotspot's casual and industrious décor will bring you back to nature whilst dining on honest food in generous portions, offering a menu catering for the peckish right through to the ravished. With signature flair, find charcoal cooked seafood to impress the tastebuds, with its punchy flavour included throughout the menu seen in dishes like the sticky soy glazed salmon. For the ravenous, tuck into dishes like the salmon burger with pickles, salsa verde and aioli, or create your own grizzly plate with your choice of fish, sauce and sides with options like coconut rice, Asian greens, roasted vegetables or sweet potato fries.

A few words from Salmon & Bear


Salmon and Bear was born out of a passion for simple tasty food, good health and true hospitality. Inspired by adventure, we encompass all that is great and outdoorsy.

We're taking it back to basics - delicious seafood cooked over charcoal in a Mibrasa oven alongside traditional fish shop favourites in an intimate log cabin setting - perfect for post adventure gatherings.


Our aim is to bridge the gap between outstanding quality seafood and casual dining prices. Removing a few frills means we can offer produce of the highest calibre such as Ora King Salmon for diners who like to eat out regularly.

We have two stores. Our first Log Cabin can be found in Zetland, going with the casual flow and due to the size of this venue we don't take bookings. Just rock up unannounced and our friendly staff will happily accommodate you. We have a great outdoor area, perfect for alfresco dining.

Our second, bigger store is located in Newtown on the famous King Street. If you are looking to book a table then this is the space for you. We can also cater for functions and birthday parties.


Best Known For

Grilled fish over charcoal, Poke Salads and Fish and Chip Shop classics.

    Salmon and Bear has two locations, one in Newtown and one in Zetland. I recently visit Salmon and Bear in Newtown with Matt for a nice Saturday date night. Salmon and Bear is located on King St in Newtown. It's a short stroll from the station. As I enter on this particular Saturday I immediately notice the cabin feel and the big deer head hanging out near the entrance.
