Fresh and Easy

This is a local for us and specialises in all sort of fresh Seafood. I have to say that I enjoy having a place like Sea Cow near by. Perfect for a Friday night! Ahh and it is BYO. I will recommend the Soft-shell Crab and the Grilled Snapper. This is a great place for all year around. The large... read more

Great Local Eatery we frequent when either in a hurry or wanting to unwind after a busy day. Prices are reasonable and choice of fish and seafood is wide. We shared some great crisp whitebait and then a grilled trout and some barramundi. They do wonderful fries and very ordinary but tasty side salads. BYO to wash it down

Shame there aren't two catagories for the two locations as our Balmain experience has been great TWICE. First time was takeaways and have to say the grilled John Dory was possibly best eaten certainly for a takeaway grilled fish. The chips that I wasn't going to eat, were also much better than I remember takeaway chips to be. It wasn't... More

A month open and not yet busy, no atmosphere on a saturday night. Our meal was so so, overcooked chips and ok fish. Good in concept, but nothing special. Needs to to better to survive on the strip it is on. We'd always return to Love Fish in Rozelle over this place.

Very disappointing Dry, cold, old tasting chips Ordered mahi mahi - grilled - over done and therefore lost any of the subtle flavored the fish is famous for Kids meals were good Complementary wine( they're new) was quite good Service was as expected Will need to step up if they're planning to be successful in Balmain At this stage, I...

This place is very ordinary. The fish was very dry and rubbery with no flavour, and the chips were overcooked and tasted like cardboard. What's even worse is that it cost me $25 for the Mahi Mahi which was supposed to be the nicest and most expensive item on the menu. Seriously, don't waste your money, you will get far... More

Waited over 40 minutes for 2 serves of incredibly base fish and chips. Order was lost - staff admitted fault but the customer service ended there. Upon asking for some kind of consolation, we encountered nothing but nonchalance which ended up escalating into full blown aggression when we asked to speak to a manager. We left hungry, upset and ripped... More

A tiny establishment in Paddington but makes up for it big time by serving delicious fresh seasonal seafood at reasonable prices . BYO Reservations not accepted. Servings accompanied with chips and a choice of salads have just the right balance. The salmon cakes are just like Mother used to make Service is quick with friendly obliging staff. Definitely one of... More
