We visited Fish because of TA positive reviews. We had good wine and exceptional red snapper. But... We made reservations through the concierge at the Shangri-La hotel for 7:00 and arrived on time. We were taken to the second floor, which was empty. We told our waitress we would happily wait for a... read more

As the name implies a nice fish restaurant on the Rocks with a good value early bird dinner (order before 18.45 and leave before 19.45) of entree, mains and a drink for $49. A good opportunity to sample great fish at a reasonable price. good ambience when we were there and good service.

A small and very popular Fish Speciality restaurant just had to try and we weren't disappointed . We chose the early sitting which was good for our short visit to the Rocks. Our meals were perfect and delicious and service was prompt and friendly . Don't overlook this one !

I went in this restaurant for mid week lunch. Nice place serving good food. No many choices offered on the special board.

This restaurant in the rocks is situated a little distance from the main tourist area. the menu is seafood, and there is a good variety from which to choose. Some platters are big enough to share, which included bay bugs, prawns, and scampi and three dipping sauces. It also came with salad and French fries. It was a fantastic meal... More

Like dining in a private house. Quirky furniture and an upstairs with a small terrace. Very convenient if staying at The Langham

We were recommended to visit Fish at the Rocks by friends and were delighted to find it every bit as good as they had said. We had both fish and seafood and found both fresh and beautifully cooked. I would recommend the barramundi stuffed with prawns - it was delicious. Although the restaurant was full the service was also good.

Located on a quiet street in The Rocks, this cozy and simple restaurant has a small, but diverse menu. We got a seafood platter for two,it was more more than enough. Finished off with trio of sorbets and coffee.

Went to Fish at the Rocks since it was so close to the Lord Nelson hotel where we were staying. We arrived without a reservation which was probably a mistake but they found us a table outside which was nice. The waitress brought us the daily special on a menu chalkboard that was almost 4 foot square which was a... More
