“Good food, wine and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

As we had booked for 6.00 pm, we had the Early Bird specials ($45 for two courses). These are mostly intended for people going to shows, as you have to order by 6.45 pm and leave by 7.45 pm. We also had a dessert each, whose price was added to the bill. Service was quick and good, and, on a warm night, we needed the water, which was topped up frequently. The wine selection, although relatively small, was good and reasonably priced. All in all, a pleasant experience

“We went twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

A local guide said he went here with his parents. We went and the fish was fabulous. Service was terrific. Great esthetic and presentation. For the last night we came back for a repeat visit.

“Worth an extra walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Although a 15 minute walk from George and Argyle, it is worth it for the excellent seafood and to get away from the crowds. It is a small place, but they do have a couple of outdoor tables for walk-up business. I had the John Dory and it was outstanding. I thought the prices were quite reasonable -- in Sydney terms. It is one of those places where casual dress is just fine - but so is business attire.

“Lovely local fish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We had a fabulous dinner at The Fish at The Rocks. Very much a local fish restaurant, rather than a tourist restaurant. Loved it!
