The food was fantastic, the service good and the relaxed atmosphere was enjoyable. The restaurant was at least 80% full but there was room for movement without feeling crowded.

The restaurant is lovely and the view is amazing. The space has a really nice vibe. You can sit upstairs or down and both are impressive. The service was quick and the food was hot. It did however, lack seasoning so I was somewhat disappointed.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Fish Exchange. There were several big groups and they still delivered good service and food. It is a nice location right on the harbour.
