My husband and I were celebrating my birthday and wanted to go somewhere special so we thought we would try fox on the quay. Upon arrival the waitress snapped at us if we had a booking, she more of less threw us into our table and just left us there without even asking if we would like a drink or... More

This was my first visit to the fox on the Quay and I must say I will be going back. I spoke with the chef a few days earlier and advised him I was allergic to gluten and lactose. I was so happy with the menu he advised for me. I was especially pleased that he made a special soy... More

This restaurant is one of my favourites. It is small but very well presented. The meals have always been excellent & their eggs benedict is something to die for. Absolutely the best I have ever had & believe me, I've had quite a few. Service is excellent. Lovely crisp white linen napkins which is so much nicer than paper napkins.... More

Visited here on the 25th September 2014. Had a lovely evening. This restaurant was recommended to us by the local owners of the B&B we were staying at & it was a good choice. I had one of the best Red Snapper's I've ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection. My meals need to be gluten & lactose free &... More

We frequent Fox on the Quay often as we have always found the food superb and pricing very reasonable. However, we went there for lunch today and I ordered the seafood chowder. Unfortunately the chowder was so salty I couldn't eat it. The waiter offered to get me another helping, which the chef said would be seasoned less. It would... More

I am terribly sorry to here our Chowder was not up to scratch this day. As it happens our sous chef was on duty, however he is usually in charge of this dish any way. I looked in to your complaint to find out what happened. It is my understanding that the waiter quickly remedied this for you and you... More

The number of empty tables on a Saturday night should have been a guide. The service was average but not hopeless. The wine list is brief, to be kind, with very average offerings. The mains are well presented - but outrageously priced. We paid similar for staggeringly better at Euro a week before. Ravioli as a main - $32 with... More

Wow I am so sorry to here your experience was so terrible. I assure you while our family does like to dine at Fox they do not review. We feel that really isn't the point of these review sights. We are a small restaurant with a small wine list due to space really, I am sorry you couldn't find something... More

When our host said he want dot go to Fox on Quay as he could hear the conversation, I thought you know that is so important and over the last few years with busy establishments you have forgotten that the art of conversation has been lost to sound blasting walls! So not only could we hear the conversation, but the... More

Very Nice food, good portion sizes, Waiter was excellent and price was decent. Only small comment would be they should wait a bit before serving your main meal as we had a Seafood chowder for Entrée, was hard to finish our main as it was served quite fast. Would highly Recommend.

A casual cafe style atmosphere with good food. We booked via the website but the response seemed a wee slow.
