Came here expecting great food after reading their menu on line, although unfortunately we had a bad experience,’
our fish was so over cooked it was like hard rubber.
Soup had way to much lemon added that there was no other flavour to taste.
Ok service but a huge disappointment all around.
Very expensive’, not worth the $, especially after dining at several other 5 star quality restaurants along Broadbeach this was by far the worst we have visited.
We are both foodies and don’t mind paying for a great meal, won’t be back again.

Lucky to get a window table (there were only two of us) - huge windows of restaurant open to great view of beach. It was the afternoon so best time for view. Food was delicious. Portions small (which was fine by me). Great flavours, super fresh local fish. *Very* expensive (but it was a special occasion and we'd wanted to go there for a while). $210 for two people - three courses, 2 glasses beer for him (one of which was complimentary for Father's Day), water for me. Service very polite and attentive but maybe too attentive - continuously asking us how our meal was, sometimes before we'd even taken a bite of the course. Made conversation tricky at times with the constant interruptions! First choice of mains wasn't available but it was still on menu. First choice of desserts required a 15 minute wait but that wasn't mentioned on menu either. But I'm quibbling. It was a delicious meal on a beautiful afternoon and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Would I go back? Probably not. It was good but not good enough for a repeat visit at those prices, even on a special occasion. But then I'm not a celebrity.

We new the menu was a little on the high side when going there, but it seemed a way lot more expensive when we went there a few years ago. Not sure why the cost had to be as high as it was, the only thing seemed that different was the ‘dry aged Fish’ on asking if there was a difference in taste the waiter said they couldn’t tell the difference but the chef could....
The other thing we found a little disappointing was we were on a time schedule, we were only allowed 2 hours...well there seemed to be a delay in getting our menus and orders, we felt under pressure the whole time. At the end of the night, we weren’t even asked if we wanted to look at the dessert menus or if we wanted coffee. We actually wondered if they even did dessert or coffee as we hadn’t seen anyone have one, until we were just leaving, someone shared a dessert.
Overall, not that impressed and we all agreed we wouldn’t go back.

We were looking forward to this evening as our previous experience had been wonderful. Not sure if it is under new management or they were having an off night but the food just didn’t hit the mark for us. The real disappointment was in the lack of service. Their offer of unlimited vegetables would have been welcomed if they had bothered to take notice that waiting 10 minutes to catch someone’s attention and having finished the fish wasn’t acceptable. Particularly when either the owner or manager was too caught up in the 2 ladies at the very next table to look up from their breasts to see that our table was unhappy. Unfortunately we had oversea guests who we had informed were going to one of the best restaurant on the coast. Very disappointed. We won’t be going back.

You pay for what you get and get what you pay for. If one wants to eat cheap then go to McDonalds. If one wants to dine fine then go to The Fish House. Thank you Fish House. What a great dining experience it was for myself and my wife on her Sixtieth.

Having travelled globally for more than 30 years, I’ve started to think it’s hard to be surprised by top notch service, cuisine prepared with love, passion and an elegant decor that makes you long to return. The Fish House is just such a place. The staff is very knowledgeable and attentive in all the right ways. Many thanks to each of them for a quite memorable experience, rest assured, I will definitely be back. If you’re travel plans take you too the Gold Coast or you’re a local that haven’t had the chance to discover this gem of a place, you owe it to yourself and especially a significant other to give them a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Creative Seafood, however it still looks and tastes like fresh seafood. Wonderful selection of every fish you can think of. Daily specials are worth having. Oysters are the best ever tasted. Staff are very accommodating in both the food and the wine selections. Great Wine list. Try the baby deep fried crispy snapper, claire de lune oysters, king whiting. But start with a Gin Cocktail of which there are many to choose from.

Our second visit to the Fish house and they staff did not disappoint us. I'm 37 weeks pregnant and they were very helpful with suggesting what meals are best done 'well done' and a beautiful mocktail. My husband really enjoyed his Rose also.

The restaurant and staff are lovely. As a group we were disappointed as we ordered the large cod and by the time it was de-boned at the table, it was cold. We also thought that the side dish portions were small and whilst you can order more, it would be nice to have enough to enjoy with your main dish, rather than wait for more to arrive. One of our party was a vegetarian and they did accomodate him. Very mixed - I think it's probably ideal for a dinner for two.

We visited the Fishouse a few years ago and I had the best dining experience and have raved about it ever since. Then I had the Coral Trout - my favourite fish straight from the tank. Perfectly cooked. This time I was looking forward to repeating this experience. The fresh tank is no longer there and no coral trout on the menu. I know it is difficult to source this fish but still?. Must say the presentation of the meals and service couldnt be faulted. Would I go back. Probably not. When a restaurant doesnt live up to your expectations its a bit disappointing.
