Best seafood restaurant in Sydney, service was amazing, a great selection of wine and the food was perfect. Lovely to be next to the water and take in the views and it was nice and warm even though we sat outside in winter. Highly recommend.

This was the second time we have been to Love Fish and it certainly didn't disappoint. Food was great. Especially like the fact you can pick your own sides to go with the main. Waiter service fantatstic.

Great booking service - accommodated our early arrival and good service. Food was excellent - specials very special.
Manager was friendly but needs to ensure he keeps his social distance of 1.5m - easy to do when you are welcoming guests.

I realise that the tables have been moved further apart due to COVID-19 rules but it is very nice to have more space and be able to hear one another easily.

Love fish is reliably high quality and well prepared and sensibly priced seafood. They could do a more edgy expresso martini. All in all unreservedly recommended.

I love LOVE FISH! I’ve been back here many times and will be back again. The location is great, the ambience is exciting and the service is always perfect - attentive but not invasive. The staff are always friendly and professional.
And the FOOD! Always so fresh and tasty. Always beautifully presented. This time, I had the fish cakes as an entree and barramundi as a main. As always, I had the Brussel Sprouts as a side order - they are fantastic! Forget everything you thought about Brussel Sprouts as kid (or as an adult), this is how they should be cooked. Flash fried with caramelised carrot and black bean - to die for!
What are you waiting for? Book now!

We have been eating at love.fish for years and love it - so much so - that we followed it to Barangaroo from it's original home!
We have shared meals there with our family (including children), taken friends there with us and had 'date nights'. Every time we have dined there we couldn't fault the experiences. The reason we have revisited so many times is that the concept is simple - fresh, wholesome food, with a menu that has the steady popular dishes, with daily specials and fish available to match the time - so depending on our mood we can try something different or stick to a moorish dish like the brussell sprouts!
The owner has chatted with us a number of times and engaged with our children which surprises me for a restaurant owner - as we are just regular people on the street and not locals that she knows.
We had a date night at Barangaroo and I was apprehensive that the things we like about love.fish will be lost in such a venue - however I was surprised. They have managed to keep the aspects I enjoy about the place, but upscaled only in terms of space, more staff of course and a more comfortable atmosphere. It looks sleeker than the old venue which was really small - although it was cosy and we did like that at times, but sometimes we couldn't get a table as it was full.
When we arrived at Barangaroo I was shocked to see the owner having a family meal in the restaurant! She evened acknowledged us with a smile and Hi when we walked past. This showed us that she is still very much part of the restaurant, the food is good enough for her family that they eat there and it hasn't lost the family / simple appeal that we enjoy.
We are glad they have survived the pandemic so far and are still open!

From the moment you walk in, staff are super friendly and accomodating to the best of their ability. They don't pressure you into buying items you don't want or upselling. Staff make the experience comforting and food is incredible, I cannot wait to come back again. The flickering light on the desk needed new batteries or fixed which was a bit annoying but really nice idea for lighting, good social distance spacing between tables too.
I definitely want to come back again with more people. This is now one of my favourite restaurants.

We had lunch on Sunday at Love Fish and was delicious.
My wife had the Moon Fish stew which she thought was superb and I had the grilled grilled King Dory Fillets which were nice. The service was very good, the staff were helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. I would certainly recommend Love Fish.

Fish was bland, tasted like it had been boiled rather than grilled.
Twice cooked chips were grey and far from crunchy and tasted like they had been cooked in old oil.
Salmon cakes were ok but mostly tasted like onion.
Brussel sprouts were good but most were undercooked and hard in the middle.

We really enjoyed the food on our first visit. This restaurant is on the water and is within a line of other restaurants that are divided by clear curtains rather than a full stand alone "dining room." It's a really fun vibe and the staff was lovely, welcoming, and helpful from start to finish.

Went to Love.Fish on Saturday to begin 70th birthday celebrations for my mum. The attention of the waitstaff and food were excellent and we had a lovely lunch. Oysters, NZ Dory and the brussel sprouts were brilliant! Thank you for a great experience. We'll be back!
