Fish that melts in your mouth, oysters so fresh you are transported to the ocean mouth. Calamari, scallops magnificently paired with a decadent organic red. Service and attention from an era long gone. Bravo

A truly memorable evening and a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant was accommodating of our last-minute booking request to have a window seat, which we appreciated. The service was fantastic - very warm and accommodating. The selection of dishes was varied and unique and everything we had was delicious, pared with excellent wines. I was also appreciative of the half bottle options on wines. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

The location is excellent, the waiters knowledgeable, the food fresh, varied and delicious and the wine/ cocktail selection perfectly compliments both the place and the food. The service was fantastic and the restaurant was very accommodating to our later than planned arrival. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant and will be returning in the future, although next time for dinner, having previously visited for lunch. I also liked their decor and music

Good food, good service and a good view. The only thing I’d change is the wine list to reflect what it was a couple years back. Otherwise beautiful lunch restaurant!

We were charged $10 for water!
The waitress went home before giving us our bill we had to approach the counter to pay
The tables are too close together and you can’t walk without hitting someone’s chair and have to apologise for being in their personal space

The service was amazing as usual.
They went over and above procuring a bottle of my favourite champagne, even though it is no longer on the menu. That is one of the many things that makes this restaurant a stand out.

Probably one of the best lunches I have had in a long time, We started with the raw tuna and the grilled , chilli and garlic king prawns, both were amazing. We then both had for mains the Morton Bay Bug Tagliolini, so good. We only had the entree size for mains but it was more than enough, loaded with bug meat,
The Maitre D Adam helped make our day, great food and wine selections and so good at his job.
Thanks to all the staff for the wonderful service and to Adam who went out of his way to make my wife's birthday one to remember.

Enjoyed a great dinner at The Fish House last Sunday evening. The food was amazing with great service to match. The setting for the restaurant is quaint and provides a good atmosphere for diners. We particularly enjoyed the fresh oysters and grilled tiger prawns, which were to die for ! Best restaurant in Burleigh Heads for sure.

We had the flounder, the seafood was chopped so fine it was not really discernable from the breadcrumbs. This was warm rather than hot when served.
The rhubarb in the dessert was underwhelming you could not really taste it at all

Thank you for a beautiful experience. Stayed on the Gold Coast with my mother and daughter and treated ourselves to the Fish House which did not disappoint. Would love a window seat next time so will have to book a little earlier. Looking forward to our return.😊

Very friendly reception and shown a window seat. Service thoughtful and attentive. When one enthusiastic wine waiter poured our wine a little too early our waiter immediately took it to the fridge to be kept cool until we were ready. Food was very enjoyable. Overall an excellent experience. Expensive but they delivered in every category. That equals value for money.

My first time here was fantastic, second time 6 month later, not so much.
What ever you do, bring some earplugs and for gods sake, stay clear of the fish soup.
The value for money here is not good, Even though there Morton bay bug pasta is fantastic, the slow service, not getting the table booked, extreme noise level, the worst fish soup I have ever had, bitter oil and not the best service is the memory you end up leaving with.
After our waiter dropped white wine in my glass the second time, i asked for a clean glass, which i got, unfortunately he was to busy to fill it up with water, so i had two water glasses, one with water and white wine mix, and one empty. I could go on, but instead i would just recommend that you look for another place .

Food was outstanding. Service lacked finesse and quality. Dispite confirming a window table 3 times in the week leading up to the reservation and the day prior, no window seat was provided; I was asked to move from my seat to discuss with the floor manager and offered a superficial explanation/apology and a private table at the back of the restaurant, which I declined as it was not necessary and not a window. The quality of wait staff was not high and whilst the food and venue cannot be faulted, impeccable service adds to an experience especially with a restaurant once renowned for its overall dining experience.

Although we could only reserve a 5.30 Sat booking we did not feel rushed through our time at the Fish House to vacate our table for the next sitting. We were given excellent service and the staff were very helpful , engaging and knowledgeable about food and wine. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Amazing location but that’s where it ends, the food was average at best and does not reflect the cost of the experience. The service was mediocre also. It used to be fantastic, they would bring the produce to the table, it was special. A far cry from what it used to be
