The restaurant is in Great position in beautiful Burleigh Heads. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance and decor. The service and food are excellent. The array of fresh whole fish available is impressive. It’s a stylish place and a good restaurant to take visitors or business associates.

Very good service and pleasant waitress however the menu was not explained well and for a cost of $200 for two people I thought the quality could have been better for mains that we did choose.

We had a table for 6 and we're extremely excited with high hopes ... after speaking with the other 5 people everyone was dissapointed .. the service was ordinary and the food wasn't amazing ... our bill was just short of $600 and for everyone to be dissapointed was dissapointing ... our waitress was at times rude and unattentive...

We arrived early at the restaurant while it was still daylight. Parking is very easy. The room is very stylish and tables were a good size. We both had a good view of the beach beyond. The food was expensive but the fish was so fresh. We had King George Whiting from Port Lincoln and Patagonian Toothfish from Heard Island. The accompanying sides were just right for the dishes and we were offered more of the sides if we required them. Service was good too. Will definitely go back when we are on the Gold Coast again. We enjoyed a Certified Organic Wine from the list.

We keep coming back! Perfect dinner with perfect service! We love the prawn cocktail, fish soup & calamari as a entree. The whole fish was cooked to perfection and the wine list is impeccable! On top of this it’s in a really trendy area looking over the beach in Burleigh! You can’t go wrong!

We have been here several times. The food standard seemed to have dropped a little. Still a great place to dine if you like fish!

Most impressed that we were contacted about our review and felt that our concerns would be addressed. We will go back!

I Love The Fish House and have dined here on several occasions. The seafood is of the finest quality, prepared simply and to perfection. The restaurant is full of energy thanks to the staff, beachside location and patrons having a great time. Service standards are impeccable and everyone from the owner to the floor staff ensure you are well looked after.

Fantastic dining experience. Finally a fine dining restaurant with a great vibe/atmosphere and generous sized dishes! I would highly recommend the lightly fried calamari and whole fish mains. Friendly staff and fantastic service. Will definitely be visiting the fish house again. Thanks team it was worth every cent.

Extremely over priced. Risotto was basically boiled rice. No taste whatsoever of crab or bottarga. And $44 - wow - you couldn’t find a risotto in Melbourne for $44 if you tried. Bug meat pasta also absolutely no flavour and watery... again $44 wow

The Food served is second to none. The Chefs are absolute Masters. The only issue I had was that after booking a table for 7:30pm so I could dine longer than the 2 hours for earlier reservations I was offered a window table at 8pm as I had requested a table by the window in my request. After 1 hour of dining just finishing our entree, I was told the kitchen was closing at 9pm and asked to hurry our main order.
This was upsetting and Andre went above and beyond to resolve the issue. Please Andre, as I said, you need to let late dinners know this prior to booking or sitting at the table.
Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Amazeballs Fish; some of the best seafood I have ever eaten in my life. Go there and you will not be disappointed. If you love the presentation and after the full experience go for the whole fish, however if you prefer not to deal with the bones then order the fillet. You can't go wrong either way

Food quality has detoriated prawns were overcooked and could not even taste garlic and chilli sauce, ( NO SAUCE) pasta dish was very plain, vegetables very plain, potato dish was also very plain-fried potatoes. I have dined at the fish house for two years and can only say that it is not up to the previous standard of good value for money and nice fresh seafood.

Very disappointing! The degustation meal with wine pairings was poorly presented, and the portions minuscule. The dishes were tasty, except for the soup, which was watery and not seasoned well, but the dishes kept being delivered without the wine paring. Complaints to the manager eventually corrected this, but only at the disgust of one of the waitresses.
We have so enjoyed this type of eating in our many travels globally, and we thought this great located restaurant would provide us with an evening to remember. Unfortunately very disappointing and one that we will definitely NOT recommend.

Dined here Wednesday night with family. I am in a wheel chair. Shame they do not have any wheel chair suitable tables. The tables have splayed bases and u cannot get the wheel chair close to the table. Other than this problem great delicious fresh seafood and fantastic wine list. Great to see a wine list with decent half bottles in it. Can't wait to visit again. Great service and overall fantastic dining experience.
