This is my local, yet time and time again, I'm let down. I've never dined in, so I can't comment on that side of the service or food quality BUT for the love of God (and food for that matter!), if they can't get takeaway right, how can the dining be any good?? Every single time, "it's about a 20... More

Found this place from the Trip Advisor review, had one of the $20 lunch specials and not disapointed. Would come back again to try a different menu option.

Just had an amazing lunch at the Fish Cafe today. My friend and I each had the Mezze plate which contained whiting with pineapple salsa, pistachio crumbed prawn, sweet chilli squid and calamari. Just enough for a light lunch on a hot day. Affogato with frangelico to finish. Yum - perfect!

I recently had family over for three weeks and we toured the east coast with them, eating at various establishments from Sydney to Brisbane. We all agreed that our best meal was here. All meals were excellent and the service was equally as good. Unfortunately, it's close to where we live and we has supper here on the last night... More

This restaurant could be great but lacks enthusiasm and imagination. The restaurant has table service but unfortunately the wait staff have not been told that they need to service the tables. The day we visited the restaurant was not busy at all. We waited at the front counter for a significant amount of time to be seated while the manager... More

The service we couldn't fault, however the food... we waited 50 minutes for!!!! We commend the poor waitress who coped it left right and centre and apologised for the delay, despite the chaos she kept her cool and... More

We have been visiting this cafe for over 10 years. This time the customer service was nowhere near where it was previously. We attended for breakfast, it was not all that busy, but we had to wait some time, even for the first round of drinks. Prices are not cheap for an average type experience. Very disappointed in the decline... More

We went there midweek for lunch. It has a nice view over the harbour and the setting inside is nice and comfortable. Although it wasn’t busy when we arrived, the service was a little slow, but the food was very good. The main A la Carte menu is pricey for lunch, but the lunch specials are good value. They had...
