I heard wonderful things about 'Fish'. I ordered salt and pepper calamari and was shocked at how horrible it was. It was covered in a horrible sweet cinnamon sauce/coating. Chips didn't have enough salt. Was charged $17 for something I wouldn't now buy for $3. It was disgusting and I ended up throwing it out. Friendly service and in a... More

This is a fish and chip shop selling fish and chips. To pretend it has anything else to recommend it is stretching the imagination.The service is peremptory and the hype unbelievable........so don't !

This shop is trying to go for a gourmet style, you buy individual servings , no bulk chip, with dim sims and a potato cake on the side here it is open for a limited time of 4:30-7:45 pm. We decided to try this shop firstly the food options on KI are limited and it was highly recommended. However it... More

I assume that this place is the same as the 'Fish Café' on North Terrace, Penneshaw that appears on Trip Advisor. Why does it get 2 review sites TA? It certainly doesn't deserve that. We ordered one of the specials which came with salad, the 'famous' marron (a local freshwater crayfish) and garfish because, as we were told by the... More

I have to preface this review by stating that I have many years experience with seafood. I have never written a review before but what I purchased on my family's first night in KI was not good. Firstly the service, not rude but basically not interested. ( time to get out maybe? ) Food, fish was too lightly cooked, batter... More

I'd love to give this a five star review, but unfortunately we got there just after two tourist buses had been through and there was nothing left of the fish except some very expensive flathead. Disappointing, but as they pointed out very nicely, they only stock fresh, daily caught fish and when it's gone, it's gone. We made do with... More

The salad was fine; basic but fine. The fish was mediocre; OK but mediocre. The sign includes hyper for something that did not happen on the night I was there.

Expected a lot more based on the reviews on the sign out the front - not to be. $12 for fish (Hoki) and chips for one. $20 for local whiting - I couldn't justify it given it was $18 for whiting with chips and salad at the Penneshaw Pub just a couple of blocks away! Fish and chips were ok,... More
