The seafood at 2 Fish was fresh and well prepared. My wife had the Baramundi and I had the Yellowfin tuna. Delicious. The mushroom/quail egg appetizer is special. Not so for the baby octopus prepared tempura style. This was like chewing rubber. The issue here is service is painfully slow. Only two waitresses working to service the entire restaurant. I realize it is the "light" season, but this was really bad. They need to get more help as the restaurant was almost filled. Not managed well.

Dined on 31 October 2015

I personally would not go back to this restaurant.We booked for a table of 4 on line the previous day and requested within the special requests / comments section what we would be ordering.However upon arrival only one of the requests could be meet.It would have been nice to be told that the special seafood requests could not be met, prior to attending the at the booked time. Which was then to late to organise a booking at another restaurant.

Dined on 23 October 2015

The food was very good. However service was poor. It seemed all servers just had too much to do and the restaurant was under staffed. My wife's food arrived at least 10 minutes after mine. Seemed that the order was never entered into computer? We saw this happen with another table as well. The waiter was very friendly and efficient at the start (we were one of the first tables) but disappeared when things got busy

Dined on 8 October 2015

We have been going to 2 fish every year,last night the service, what can I say, what service, we ordered cocktails, while still drinking them, entree arrived. Hubby ordered a glass of wine to have with dinner, no sight of it until we had to ask for it, It was sitting on a serving table. The whole fish that was ordered was over cooked, they did make another one,but a restaurant of its reputation should not have that many mistakes,what is going on.Get back to the reputation you always had.

If you want top quality fresh water seafood, this is the place to go. I know my fish well, this place served the fish how its meant to be done. If you don't appreciate top quality fish, go to a local pub.

We went there to enjoy a lovely meal and were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcoming and helpful nature of the all the staff. Our meal was "to die for"- exquisite to say the least, from the entre to the desert :). I was so impressed I went for the lunch box specials the very next day. This was one of my best highlights of my Port Douglas holiday!

Dined on 18 September 2015

Very disappointing charged $92 for main meal I wanted two pieces of fish as main meal was small three nights earlier and was charged double. We also ordered a steak it was under cooked and taken back to kitchen, 20 minutes later after everybody had eaten it returned and was chewy and Could not be eaten. The waitress was lovely but management made no effort nor did they apologize or compensate in any way. My son left hungry. The best they did was deduct an inedible meal poor customer service.

Dined on 22 August 2015

We ordered ciabatta and olives to start. Both very delicious. We then shared the pepper calamari and the seafood platter for 1, which was more than enough for 2 of us. The baby squid on the platter was disappointing and tasted like fried batter and nothing else. The chips and salad on the platter were generous servings. All in all, a nice and relaxing night out. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Amazing food, poor service!! Waited 15 minutes for a drink and food order once seated. We had entree and main and only were able to have one drink each in this time. We ordered another drink when our mains got to the table and that never came!! When our waiter took our meal order she stated it was her first night!! Big no no in hospitality!! No one was supervising her and I could see many tables in that section looking around trying to get any waiters attention!!

Dined on 27 April 2015

Food was lovely but main size serves were small. My husband had the fish and chips for $30 and it had one small piece of fish. After our bill came to $110, we ended up going past the supermarket on the way home to get food as we were both hungry. You would think fish and chips would have at least one big piece of fish or two pieces. Disappointing.

Dined on 15 February 2015

It was an absolute pleasure to dine here, after being disappointed by other seafood restaurants in Port Douglas, the staff friendly, inviting and knowledgeable, the food needs 1000 words to describe. Portion size was perfect, flavours enticing, and reflecting a modern twist. I would highly recommend the sharing dishes as well. All In all this is a fantastic restaurant for port Douglas and 2 fish are going to have some regulars from now on ??

Dined on 30 December 2014

I booked a table for two for New Years eve for myself (Gluten allergies) and my partner (no allergies). We spent $120 each on a mediocre meal that was a bitter tasting end to 2014! They had not catered for my gluten intolerance even though I gave them over a months notice. I instead received a bland and cheap green salad to start instead of fresh foccacia bread, and three balls of plain and very boring vanilla ice cream instead of home made tiramisu. Other food was average. Nothing exciting.

Dined on 24 December 2014

We've rated the food as very good, but the service medium - 2 Fish is a paradox: the floor staff were terrific - friendly, engaged, efficient, coping well under busy Christmas Day pressure. However, the maitre d' was rude on entry - for which he apologised profusely, and we accepted. We would have left it there if he hadn't attempted to overcharge us! So unfortunately we won't be going back, and would find it very difficult to recommend it, despite the food, floor staff, and ambience.
