All was excellent, food, service etc. Andre our waiter was marvellous. Our Tasmanian wine (Sav Blanc) was divine.
However, our seating was not the best, squished into a dark corner near main door which surprised me as I had booked well in advance for my husband's 70th.

the food was exceptional. Fresh balanced flavours that showcase the best quality seafood. The mussels, bugs and scallops were fantastic. The show stopper Patagonian tooth fish! Nailed it!

We went on a Monday evening so the place was extremely quiet. We wouldn’t ordinarily mind except it meant we were rushed to order our mains at only 8:15pm!!

Never a fab of the surrounding clean up, so the evening was cut short.

We had a few different staff serving us. Female waitress was ok but annoyed with us. Male waiter was terrific! We would return but maybe on a different day.

Ambiance, service, food and drink selection was excellent.
The fish dishes were as good as I've tested and the waiters most knowledgeable and helpful.
Highly Recommended.
The process of booking, being warned of cancellation if not on time and allocated strict dining times doesn't do such venue justice. There are better ways to welcome customers.

I had the whole rainbow trout and didn't like it at all with the tahini and salad on top. Those flavours really clashed with the fish and overpowered it. I had to carefully scrape the toppings off so that I could try to enjoy the fish. Next time, I will definitely ask that anything that is supposed to be served on top of the fish, be kept on the side.
The calamari was delish, my partner enjoyed his whitting, but unfortunately my rainbow trout was borderline inedible which is disappointing when its a $48 meal. The roast potatoes and the green veg were amazing!
We will come again but will order something different next time.

Excellent night at the fish house. Adam contacted us to offer us an earlier seating with a window table which was perfect. He made a special effort to introduce himself on the night and the service from everyone was impeccable, we felt very well looked after. The food was absolutely stunning, tasted fabulous and looked great. We will definitely be returning.

I have not been disappointed since the change of ownership of FH. Being a local and a regular around our local restaurants its always a very favourable dining experience at FH. We had a delightful dinner mid week (Wednesday) and it was excellent. Again. Well done.

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere though some dishes were prepared without care and as such were overpriced. The bread served was cold and chewy, a strange way to deliver bread to the table at a fine dining restaurant- cold slices delivered to different tables ather than freshly baked and warm. A very expensive meal all up, and although attentive service, didn’t live up to expectations or cost.

あまりお腹が空いていなかったので前菜2つとメインのリゾットとワインをいただきました。雰囲気はとてもいいのですがすこしお値段が高いようにおもいます。記念日とか誕生日とかにおしゃれしていくのもいいかも。駐車場は目の前のビーチまえにたくさんありますのでご心配なく。早い目に着いて近くの散策も楽しいですよ。

Superb Restaurant. Staff were ever attentive and the food outstanding particularly the Patagonian Toothfish which melts in your mouth. I liked the French undertones in decor and found the seating comfortable and ambience enjoyable. The menu is definitely suited to people with a discerning taste for quality seafood. If you're a steak and 3 vege kind of person, then you may want to reconsider this restaurant. I'd recommend getting there 20-30 minutes earlier than your booking as parking nearby is challenging to say the least. I could say more but I leave that for others. Thanks to everyone at The Fish Houses.

Great ambience - classy sophistication without being uptight. Our waiter was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Every dish was cooked perfectly which can be tricky to achieve with seafood. Overcooking seafood is one of the most common and heinous crimes as far as I am concerned. The serving portions were a respectable size. My only uncertainty about the meal was the marinade used on the Patagonian toothfish. For a delicate fish, I felt that the marinade overpowered rather than complimented the quite subtle flavour of the fish.
