When booking we were a little worried about the 530 must booking time but in the end it was perfect for us
The service was so good it’s what is missing in most restaurants these days
Loved the freshness of the seafood flavours to die for
We will definitely be recommending the fish house and we will be back
Cheers

Special lunch catch-up with longtime friend. We couldn't fault anything about our experience- staff attentive,well informed, happy to engage with us and efficient. We'd viewed the menu online,therefore had a general idea of what we'd like - food/wine...this made our experience that much better. Definitely book ahead and give them a call if you get caught up in traffic/ or doing laps seeking out the elusive carpark!

Outstanding food and service. Every we dish we had was fantastic, cooked beautifully, presented well and importantly tasted amazing. Highlights were the raw kingfish, the tooth fish, flavour of the prawn bisque and fabulous Clare de lune oysters. Service was warm, attanetive and friendly. Took my parents there as a Christmas gift and we go to sit by the window, enjoy the evening breeze, such a wonderful night, thank you fish house!

Lovely as always , I wasn’t that hungry and wanted something small, but there wasn’t the choice . I went for a simple fish and chips which was lovely and the fish beautifully cooked. Highly recommended but would like to see more choice around starters

My husband had the Patagonia toothfsh for a main and tuna and oysters to start. Everything was superb. I had the scallops to start and they were very tasty. I had the whole snapper as a main but found the sauce overpowering for this subtle fish. The vegetables were also very good so on the whole a good visit. Our waiter was attentive and we loved sitting by the window. A good experience overall but the snapper dish rather disappointing.

We went there for a birthday celebration. The food was sensational possibly the best seafood we have ever had . All dishes were well explained . Two issues . First was that it was obvious that a small birthday cake was frowned upon . So we elected not to produce it . Also we were asked to vacate without being asked about coffee and dessert . There was a line up to get in . We were not told of any time slot when we booked . We were actually in 15 mins early and asked to come back even though our table was empty .

A bit noisy for my liking. While service staff were efficient, it came with an air of arrogance. Also seemed a bit overpriced for what was delivered. Food was nice but there were many changes to the menu on the night we attended but no change to the item pricing. Seemed a bit odd.

We’re a young couple that have now dined at fish house twice. We love the food, however always get treated poorly by staff and never have a very nice seat. We think we may be treated like this because we are younger then most diners at the restaurant which is a shame.

The food at The Fish House was lovely & very quick to arrive at our table. Staff were very friendly & pleasant from our greeting at the door to our exit. The place was packed & everyone seemed to be having a great time. It was our first time at this restaurant & we shall be returning as we enjoyed it so much. The restaurant is close to a busy road & traffic can get noisey which may bother some people - it didn't bother us. The ocean view is amazing but the restaurant over the road needs to find a better place to put their garbage bins as they are an eye sore when dining.

I have been a keen participant at the fish house since it's inception.
I went in post the change of ownership and was a bit put off.
But I went again with my partner on Wednesday night and it was spectacular.
I love that they have reinvented the menu and brought back amazing seafood to burleigh. Fish House a local icon is back.

We were so disappointed with our night out to the Fish Restaurant. I had requested (many days earlier) a table with views to the ocean..... our ‘view’ was a large group booking and a fireplace. It wasn’t romantic, it was noisy and stuffy. The only way to describe the food would be to elaborate further... Entree had a nice flavour but was very over cooked and chewy - as evident with the half dozen glasses of water I needed to wash it down with - therefore, I do not recommend the grilled baby calamari. My husband’s flash fried baby calamari was tasty (cooked well), but not excellent, we have had better at many other establishments. Mains - my pasta dish was heavy and bland. The pasta was cooked well, but the capers were not enough to cut through the cream - if you had added some sautéed spinach it would have at least added some freshness to the dish. Another half dozen glasses of water later. My husband liked his fish, but said there was a strange mushroom flavour in the puree underneath. I found the waiter to be very attentive - he seemed to be at our table every five minutes filling my water glass, but not attentive enough to notice it was because there were issues with the food. For dessert my husband ordered the white chocolate mousse and I ordered the fondant. It was nice (but not fantastic). The fondant was well under.... mostly batter - not even half/half. When we were asked how the food was upon leaving I mentioned the chewy nature of the entree - her reply implied that I must have been mistaken because she had eaten the grilled calamari earlier in the day and that was fine. In what way would that relate in any way to my meal... wouldn’t they be cooked to order? It was obvious she didn’t want honest feedback so I didn’t bother elaborating further. We just wanted a beautiful meal at a nice restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, it ended up being a disaster from start to finish.
