This was our third time in a month, Love Fish Is only one of a few restaurants that actually knows how to cook fish to perfection, the service is friendly and quick and offers a simple and relaxed atmosphere, and to top it off its great value as well. The best battered fish with tartare sauce for $19 and if you want chips or a salad is only a few dollars.

Very well cooked Spanish mackerel and good service. The only thing I dislike about love.fish is that you have to order any sides separately otherwise you end up with just a piece or 2 of fish and half a lemon.

Hey Stacy. Thanks for taking the time to review us! We appreciate your feedback and will pass it on to the team. Please note that our reasoning behind serving the fish by itself is so that people have the flexibility to order how they want their fish. We'll be sure it take it onboard though. Thanks!

There was a lot of pressure to ensure our family get together was a success and Love Fish delivered on every level.
Conveniently located opposite the ferry wharf at Barangaroo, dining al fresco, attended by wonderful staff and really high quality cuisine in a casual atmosphere.
Well done!

Had at least three different servers. Sat for at least 20 minutes with the empty cocktails we ordered upon arrival. Had to grab a random server to order wine to go with our meal. Food totally mediocre. Incredibly disappointing since it was so highly rated on opentable.

Food was great, but we dont think we received much value out of the set menu. Service was ok but getting someone’s attention became annoying. Some how our bill got mixed up. Took a little longer than expected to have dinner. Set menu isn’t really worth the time.

Love.fish has great fish! Service was quick and nice. Also did a great job accommodating for allergies.
The only thing I would improve would be maybe making the menu a little more clear. (I was told that I got a side with my fish and agreed to get chips but ending up having to pay for them. )

We chose the set menu which was incredible value for money and all of the dishes were outstanding.
It even included the roasted Brussels sprout dish which is my absolute favourite.

Have tried many other city restaurants but love fish is by far our favourite.
Only downside is wine seems to be a bit pricey. I know because I am a liquor retailer.

Hi Peter. Thanks for taking the time to review us. We're glad to hear we're your favourite city based restaurant. Please note that the majority of our wine is sourced from sustainable, local Australian retailers, therefore it may be slightly pricier compared to your usual venue, however you can sip away knowing that you are supporting Australians.
