We had a fun night. The staff were friendly and the food was good. Every one was very service oriented and nothing seemed too hard. I was surprised that the price wasn't too steep (not cheap but fair) and value for money in my view.

·Dined on 7 August 2016

Our waitress didn't understand the concept of starter, then entree, so we were delivered both at once and sent our entree back. She spent the rest of the evening stomping her feet around the restaurant, very unprofessional. People from overseas on the next table were very confused by her delivery of the specials. It wasn't the most enjoyable experience compared to last year where 2 Fish went to the top of our most favourite restaurants in PD. I don't usually comment negatively to restaurants in PD but compared to the others we have dined at this year unfortunately 2 Fish goes to the bottom of our dining experiences. Food was excellent but front of house was disappointing.

·Dined on 1 August 2016

We ate whenever in Port Douglas at the previous address in Wharf Road but the new location, 15 mins from the 3 busy hotels at the other end of Mactossan Street, is far far quieter, more spacious and "up martket". Excellent food, good wine list (especially the selections by the glass) and efficient but not intrusive service. A strong competitor to the other quality restaurants.

·Dined on 14 June 2016

When an evaluation option is listed as "scenic views" for 2 Fish we realize this is a generic review. Think again. The food was wonderful but too many dishes contained chilli. The corn base for the scallops was a brilliant stroke . The coral trout a real "best fish" surprise for people from Buckley, Vic. The bugs filling - some beautifully done, some dryish. The sorbets were delightfully and surprisingly different and refreshing. Holly and Chris were brilliant. Best in Port Douglas.

Food great. Manager was very attentive. Other waiters inattentive and seldom checked table to see if needed more water or another drink. We ordered red wine and showed waitress the particular brand on the wine list. After some time two glasses of white arrived! We noticed this also happened at other nearby tables

Amazing food. Great cocktail list with added option of dragon fruit made it unique. Services was friendly and welcoming. Would also like to say your Instagram account liked one of my photos that had the hashtag of portdouglas. After looking at the account we decided to go there for dinner. Great use of marketing!!

Excellent

We enjoyed it so much we ate there two nights in a row. Will go back next time for the seafood platter.

Just didn't enjoy screaming kids which is not the restaurants fault but for the money you pay some peace from screaming would be more relaxing.

·Dined on 21 February 2016

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.

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

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.

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!

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.
