Arrived at Wildfish at the appointed time for our reservation. They did not appear too busy but we had a wait to be seated. When seated we noted most people in the restaurant had coats on. The reason became obvious, must have a problem with the heating, it was freezing. No one attended us, or even offered water. We left... More

Went for a drive to Port Albert looking for a lazy lunch on a sunny Saturday and stumbled across this little gem. A really nice setting overlooking the water with a cosy ambience. Once seated, the waiting staff were quick to ask if we would like drinks and also took the time to let us know they were in training.... More

Went there last Friday on a wet rainy day while in the area. What a wonderful experience. The fish was cooked to perfection. The star dish was the linguini with prawns. This was amazing. Wonderful flavours and the perfect amount of tomato topping. My wife definitely picked the better dish between the two of us. The service was excellent and... More

The outlook from the restaurant is special. Our service was very good and the staff friendly. The menu was varied, if a little pricy and would certainly appeal to people from the city. Our only complaint was that the venue is very noisy. There are no carpets, curtains or other sound deadening materials and even with a small number of... More

I was surprised to see negative reviews for this restaurant. If I had to say anything negative it would be that they had changed the menu for valentines days and we had our heart set on a few things we had seen previously listed on their website, but after dining at Wildfish we were not disappointed by what we ate....

Rather disappointed with our food. If you like crispy batter you are best not to order or be disappointed! It came stodgy and undercooked. The fish inside was lovely, however, the first mouthful of the batter spoiled the whole meal, hence not risking deserts! When approached about the issue, the friendly staff were apologetic offering 1 free dessert or a... More

My family has had a little beach shack in Port Albert for over 50 years. Over that time we've seen gradual changes, some good and some not so good. This was my first visit to Wild Fish with my family after hearing about it from others. We had 4 children in tow, along with 4 adults. Our meals were delicious,... More
