“Excellent food and good value by Aussie standards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Had dinner here with friends because we couldn't get a reservation at Garfish. Initially seated outside but when we asked, we were moved inside because, even in January, it was a bit chilly. Food was extremely good and service excellent.

Recommended.

“Unfriendly Staff...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

--> The food is still very good, but some female waiting staff could use a lesson in friendliness, and wear a smile on their face, or find another job...
--> We wouldn't rush to go back to Jelly Fish purely from our unfriendly experience from a female member of staff sorting out the seating...
--> There were clearly spaces available for two people to share a table with others at the busy time we arrived for breakfast, but the female sorting out the seating appeared to be being difficult because she thought she was in a position of power...
