Menu was misleading , Ora king salmon special which three of us thought it was going to be a filet and turned out to be added to a risotto. Be aware ordering

Water side dining was a plus. Being first time visitors we went for the local Kangaroo lion and Barramundi dishes. Both were excellent. Also ordered 2 sides but should have gone for 1 because there was too much food.

yep - awesome spot and great staff. Im not a big trout fan so should have picked something else but it was cooked very well. And the rest of the feast was outstanding! wine list right on the money as well.

We had a really nice dinner here! The food we ordered was cooked to perfection as you'd expect and the setting was lovely! The only thing I would question is the service and sometimes the attitude of staff - try to smile and be more attentive to your customers.

I would definitely recommend the grilled octopus as the stand out dish.

Never disappoints ... as always the food 🐟, drinks 🥂 and especially the service was first class 💫! Always a favourite & now planning on taking my Mum & Aunt / Uncle to celebrate their 80th Birthday 🎂 next year, as requested by them 👏🏻, as we had such a lovely time on Thursday. If possible could you please let me know if you have a record of the table no. we had so I can request this table for them, it was perfect👌 .

Thanks 😊

Lovely reception on first arrival (not our first visit), attentive wait staff once seated, excellent food throughout all courses (special mention for the tuna hors d'oeuvres and trout main course), what more could one ask for to welcome 2020. Thank you - we will return again soon.

Don't order the oysters. We ordered a dozen of Pacific oysters and Sydney Rocks. They put down a poorly plated platter and no one told us which were which. They were not the best oysters but ok. THEN, the last one I had was spoilt and I had to spit it out. This was not what i expected at any good seafood restaurant in Sydney. The manager came over - she kindly asked if i was ok and apologised. The foul taste remained in my mouth for a long time. She took off the $4.5 off our bill.

The server recommended that we tried the 'caramelized' brussels sprouts - he said it was really good. We took the recommendation but they came out as burnt brussels sprouts, which brought out their bitter taste even more!

Even we booked our table for 4 weeks ahead, and even though they were not full, they seated us away from the harbourfront where there were empty tables and placed us at the back closest to the kitchen.

our kids loved the king prawns, and also the steak on the kids' menu. So that was good.

it was a very disappointing meal, unfortunately, for us.

The fish was outstanding. I will go back for this. The rice desert was disappointing & hence the lower than 5 stars rating.

I booked well in advance and requested a romantic table for two for my husband’s birthday.
We arrived on time and were seated in between two noisy tables in the middle of the restaurant.
There was a lovely table available at the front of the restaurant and when I asked to be moved to the preferred table, I was advised that it was only available for four people. After being shown other tables (including a table for four) we were eventually placed at the lovely table in the front of the restaurant. This was embarrassing, unnecessary and spoilt the overall experience of love.fish, especially when I had made my request in writing with the original booking.
It was a pity as the food is good and the rest of the service was good.

The location in the evening is quite spectacular, although in the daytime it is pretty drab.

The kitchen is obviously excellent. I had for dinner a whole rainbow trout with vegetables. It was expertly cooked and was obviously fresh with excellent flavour and consistency.

The desert was original and tasty.

The service was average. Three of us got our meals fairly promptly but we had to wait another five minutes before the fourth meal arrived. That sort of thing should never happen in a good restaurant.

In short, not an outstanding restaurant, but one with an excellent kitchen and a pleasant location

Office get together for lunch on a Thursday. Service a little haphazard to begin but improved as the day progressed. Tables a little small for the six we booked however the seafood was fresh with modern approaches and there was a respectable collection of beers and wines to choose from. All in all, a very good first visit and have already pre-planned a return visit with friends.

We had a wonderful birthday celebration at love.fish. The customer support with organising our set menu - we were 12 adults, was excellent, very helpful and accommodating.
The food and service was fantastic, such a lovely location, we will definitely return

Fabulous food and fabulous service. Freshness, quality and innovation of seafood on the chilled platter was outstanding. David (Manager on duty) provided exceptional service. He was so friendly, helpful and accomodating.

We have found a new favourite restaurant!!

With > 10 % of the population Vegetarian/Vegan I'm surprised that side - salads is the best they can do in this space ... more effort required here.

I felt that the service was good but didn’t receive the personal service that would have been nice as I was there for a friends birthday but no one made a fuss as I would have liked.
