We always enjoy a relaxed lunch at this restaurant. The Fish Pie was very good and so was the service and wine.

Sadly the fish for my husband & our friend was over cooked & dry. I had the salmon fillet which was nice but nothing exciting
The staff were very nice & friendly

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.

Love.fish was a great dining experience when we went there for a family birthday lunch. The staff were very helpful and the service was great. The food was delicious, for it's price we wouldn't recommend the seafood platter as we felt it didn't have as much as other restaurants sea food platters however every other dish we got was fantastic. We got the brussel sprouts side dish after reading a review and so glad we did. They are delicious and are a must try! They also catered for everyone and had a vegan special and a vegan dessert which were both great.

Really enjoyed our meal here. Compared to some of the louder places along the water, we appreciated the quieter atmosphere and nice spacing between tables. The prices, food and service were just right for us, and we could enjoy a nice view and conversation without shouting at each other.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Love Fish.
The wine pricing is rather expensive which limits the amount ordered.

Hey Peter. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback! Please note the majority of our wine is locally sourced and sustainable from Australian suppliers which often means it is more expensive, but you can sip away knowing you are supporting Australian small businesses, which to us is of prime importance.

We had the barramundi, the Brussels sprouts and the hand cut chips. All were excellent. The skin on the fish was perfectly crisp while the fish was still incredibly moist. Perfectly cooked.
