Excellent Food at a price

Three of us enjoyed a great meal at Fish Face now in Double Bay. The service was a bit off this evening,as our mains were delivered to the table next to us before being picked up and placed infront of us. Apologies from the waitress saying it was her first night. Unfortunately this happened again... read more

My foodie sister suggested Fish Face for lunch on a recommendation from a friend. We were the first to arrive for lunchtime so we wouldn't miss out on a table and we could take our time checking the menu. Oysters and terrine to start followed by large platter of sashimi and a main of whiting finished off with coffee and... More

We used to dine at Fish Face at its old location in Darlinghurst on a regular basis, but this was our first meal at their new premises in Double Bay. I'm very pleased to say that Fish Face is still going strong! We dined there for lunch on Saturday, and the whole experience was excellent. Seated at one of the... More

I used to go to Fish Face in Darlinghurst twice a month on a Sunday. It was my favourite place to eat, the seafood always fantastic and the service always very good. I am always of the mind that if you have any issues that you deal with them on the night and not via social media however the lady... More

Started with crab ravioli, amazing, best ever. Wife had Mahi and I had Broadfish, the difference with this restaurant is that it's Chef cooking, absolutely outstanding!! We will definitely be back again and again. Steve Hodges Chef, nice guy, great restaurant, legend chef!

Great food but very small portions and very expensive! The place is not a fine dinning but they have fine dinning prizes. Is a cool place to go with your friends if you wanna hang out having very well cooked fish, but be aware that you gonna pay a lot!

On the flight up from Melbourne I flicked through the weekend Australian magazine and saw an article announcing Fish Head as the best seafood in Australia. We arrived in Sydney around lunchtime so I quickly googled, managed to get us in for lunch and jumped in a taxi destined for Double Bay. We shared a sashimi plate, fish curry and... More

Fish Face was informality with style. Watching the sahimimi chef was a bonus.the cuttle fish was superbly prepared and served. I had crispy wild Kingfish, excellent. The deserts were tempting and the banana and passion soufflé was memorable. The toilets have fabulous fish wall paper to brighten your visit😀 Perhaps investing in an automatic door closing device would help as... More
