Lunch was superb - we decided to graze thru 8/12 entree options which proved an inspired choice. the Kingfish entree was my pick, but in truth all were outstanding. Best choice in Burleigh by far, well done guys !

Took the family and we really had a great time especially as the two teenagers actually hadn’t been to a fine dinning restaurant before . Both 15 and 16 but were very well treated thank you.

An excellent meal. The entree's were great and as a large group we ordered 2 x snappers with sides.
Highly recommend as a special evening and one of the better meals on the Gold Coast.

Wonderful! However our experience was let down by the poor table position by the bar, it was like sitting in a corridor with waiters whizzing by and we were bumped several times.
Will return, however will request a better table next time we make a reservation!

The meal started with the best calamari I have ever tasted. We then ordered a whole fish which was to be deboned at our table. The waitress took the fish to the wrong table and it was deboned in front of other patrons. We were then presented with a plate with fish pieces on it which was very disappointing when you are paying $200 for a fish and we didn't get the experience of seeing the fish beforehand or witnessing the deboning which is part of the whole fish experience. A short while later a fish skeleton was presented to us to show us where our fish pieces had come from. Totally disappointing. Upon checking our bill properly when we arrived home we noticed that we had been charged for 3 gin and tonics when we had only had one. Our fault there for not checking the bill properly before leaving the restaurant.

We’ve been to The Fish House probably six or seven times in the last three years. It’s an excellent restaurant, serving finest quality fish. Although it’s changed hands since our last visit two years ago, it hasn’t lost its quality food and service.

Adam was our host and he looked after us from start to finish - thanks Adam. We love the Fish House. Beautiful location and superb food.

If you want local fresh fish, quality wine and excellent service this the The place on the Gold Coast.

Degustation is very nice if you have the time and on a nice day the view down the beach to Surfers is great and especially if you have a window seat. Attentive friendly professional service on both my visits but that all comes at a price!

The entrees were excellent and desserts were very good. The main courses were very good except for the oregano overpowering the whiting. I ordered coral trout and was told it was unavailable even though there were whole coral trout hanging in the display. At these prices I'd expect them to fillet one of their whole fish.

The staff didn't seem to read the booking. No mention was made of the birthday or pre-notification of gluten free requirement for one guest. Waitstaff interest in the gluten free requirement was quite mediocre until it was revealed that the guest was coeliac. After that the waitstaff was attentive to the issue but didn't know which dishes were GF. At this price point, staff have normally memorised that information.

We weren't asked whether we wanted a drink when we arrived, and had difficulty attracting attention to get one even though we were in view of the bar staff and waitstaff. Wine selection by the glass was excellent but there were no standard mocktails on the drinks list, even though mocktails are standard at restaurants these days.

Overall, the value provided was about two-thirds of the prices charged.

Amazing food and service to match. We absolutely loved our dinner there and look forward to returning for another special occasion. Even though it is expensive they are very generous with their complimentary bread and side dishes.
I thoroughly recommend the Patagonian Toothfish.
