Have been there a number of times over the last 5-6 years. Always thought it was the very best.
This time the snapper and pasta dishes were very ordinary.
This place is not cheap but we are always happy to pay for a quality product.
Most disappointed!

Wonderful location overlooking Burleigh beach with the Surfers Paradise skyline as the backdrop. Very professional and attentive service and wonderful food - all make for a fabulous dining experience. We tried the Degustation Menu and loved every course; fresh and delicious. An outstanding restaurant which I would highly recommend.

The food as always was fantastic. However we felt rushed particularly at the end when we decided not to have desserts we were immediately asked if we wanted the bill and then the waiter stood over my husband and pointed out how to pay a tip. This my birthday celebration and it was only my husband and myself however last year we had ten guests for my 60th and paid more than a couple of thousand dollars. It doesn’t hurt to give people a little something as a gesture. We won’t be returning.

Love this restaurant been a number of times now.
The risotto and fish we had was divine. Unfortunately the dessert we had apple tarte tartan wasn’t nice.. the desert is expensive therefore expectations are high. It was undercooked we sent it back it still wasn’t great when the waitress reheated it. unfortunately we weren’t offered any discount.. it was a friends birthday so I took her to the fish house so this was a little disappointing

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 !

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.
