Goldfish Bar was one of the only places open, serving food at 3pm. The menu offered was limited so we ordered the fish taco's which were delicious. The staff were lovely and it was really nice sitting at the outdoor tables in the sunshine.

We had a fantastic lunch with lots of friends but the service for the food and drinks was a bit less than offered. We had to wait for over an hour for some of the meals and gave up on the drinks.

I tried the "Braised Lamb Shoulder" there, it was amazing. I loved the atmosphere. The only issue that I score 4 is the long waiting time to get my food while there were not a lot of people in the restaurant.

Only popped in for a quick bite to eat and was super satisfied. The food was fresh and well presented. The flathead tacos were amazing as well as king crab soldiers and stuffed zucchini flowers all fantastic!

Came here on a not so busy night in the Hunter. We were told we could sit anywhere and we found a nice table inside (bit chilly out). The staff were attentive to us and very friendly. We started off with the fish taco. They...More

Hi there, it's best to book for a Saturday. If you just turn up on the night, we will still be able to find a table for you but you may have to wait for a while - there is usually space at the bar to have a drink whilst... More
