“Gotta love the burgers here!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I love love loved the burgers here at Billfish. Especially the Juicy Lucy and the Billfish burger. It was reasonably priced. Although the wait for our meal took quite a while, but the wait was definitely worth the wait.
Everyone must try the burgers here. Service is also very good.

We shared an entree of Ota Ika (raw fish in lime juice and coconut milk) with garlic bread to tie us over till dinner and it was up with the best I have had, I just cant get enough of this dish, and the cocktails were well priced and also yummy, oh and the atmosphere and people were nice too.

Thank you for your reveiw,

We are glad you enjoyed the Ota Ika, Billfish makes sure we get the freshiest Tuna & Mahimahi for our Ota Ika. The coconut milk is also made nightly in the kitchen so we can ensure it is fresh.

Hope to see you at Billfish again,
Malo,
Robert.

“friendly bar, variable service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

nice setting, rustic, well used bar - service not consistently good and manager not actively hosting customers. some food (samosa etc.) excellent - fish n chips average. This bar has been around a long time and should be the market leader.

Thank you for your review.
We have worked very hard at our service in Billfish Bar & Restaurant and have also sent our senior staff to several training courses with regards to this. We will need to redirect these efforts as they seem to have not paid off.
I will ask our Night Manager to make sure guests are greeted.
Thanks again for your review and we look forward to having you at Billfish again,

Malo,
Robert.
