    I had the grilled prawns for starters they were ok but very chewy. Husband had oysters kilpatrick he said he has had much better, for mains I had eye fillet which was beautiful but you got one very small piece of broccoli and 2 potato gems, for the price I paid it was very poor. My husband had the seafood chowder, it was nice but usually it has fish, prawns, clams etc, this only had fish and nothing else, so should of been called fish soup. We have dined at fish on Parkin many times and always loved it, but this time it was a disappointment.

    Average food at Sydney prices and none attentive service. We waited 40 minutes for a drink order after asking 3 times during a quiet evening service. Would have stayed longer and spent more money if we'd felt it was more worthwhile.

    As always an excellent place to eat, and as usual, the barramundi was tops. But, so too we’re the oysters and the coconut prawns. Service excellent, as was the wine list- the French Rose an excellent accompaniment. Already working on our choices for next visit!

    A great place to eat with a wide range of food to include those who don't feel like fish 'on the day'. The only issue on our visit was that we arrived to find that you had just served the last of your Seafood chowder. Great pity!

    Fish on ParkynResponded on 24 May 2022Hi Brian! We are so sorry about the seafood chowder! Our mistake, won't happen again! Take care and hope to see you again soon.

    The risotto was very gluggy and too much Parmesan, the free French champagne while a nice touch was rubbish. The oysters kilpatrick was average. Oysters nice but the bacon too much and too thick. Very expensive

    We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit. All staff were professional and efficient. Our drinks and food arrived promptly but we were not rushed at all. We had 3 courses and each course was of a high quality and well presented. I would certainly recommend this restaurant and go there again. The only downfall was the young lads in their noisy cars later in the night.

    Great service from waitresses Great steak and mushroom sauce Dissapointed in the three entrees The scallops were bland and not hot Coconut prawns were nothing like they used to be with old owners and calamari very average and small serve. In general Very overpriced for serving sizes.

    A fair experience at a time when restaurants trying to get their pre covid mojo back. Booking via this platform unable to be located by first two people. Nicole was the saviour of our experience with warm competent attention. Food was underwhelming. Winner was red emperor carpaccio. Fried squid was good texture and lacked punch. Garlic cheese bread was very strong on garlic and tasty Mains of Malay seafood curry was lacked flavour complexity and muted - served more as a bisque with a blob of rice on the side it seemed confused. Seafood risotto was competently prepared and tasty with garlic being predominant. Chocolate date pudding was good and key lime pie was barely discernible as a pie made from citrus lacking entirely of any of the expected sharpness and tartness, nevertheless the biscuit base saved it. Good wine selection including stickies. Final comment, outside of the restaurant's control are the rev-heads that drive their ridiculously loud vehicles up and down the street (which all tables are seated right next to) impacting the ambience

    The cocktails were excellent as was the wine choice assisted by the bar manager, delightful entrees of fish and squid my wife's Barramundi was very well prepared and filling however I would note that although well prepared 8 scallops alone on a plate with sauce is not a meal, I left feeling like I had eaten very little, the only saving grace was the side order of chips. my wife enjoyed an excellent Key lime pie. I'm just not sure that the cost reflected the outcome. Excellent smiling service, not mush time from ordered to eating.
