I went here for dinner as I was staying nearby with a dog, and needed an outdoor table so I could keep her near me. Good wine list, and we had a nice white by the glass. The bread and oysters were good. The mains were beautifully presented and tasty. Total bill for two with a shared entree, wines by... More

We went based upon the top rating. It is not a 5. That being said the food was good, well prepared and expertly served. Fish stew contents was not quite what we had hoped but certainly adequate. Fries with the fish and chips were standard frozen then locally fried that now seem to be everywhere. Our only complaint was the... More

After a lot of walking, I wanted to find a nice place for some good seafood. Fish at the Rocks was still serving lunch, so I headed over. The place was packed.. I think I was given the last lunch table. As soon as I sat down, the large chalk board of today's specials was presented and I was asked... More

We chose Fish at the Rocks for our final dinner on a three week road trip down the east coast of Australia and were delighted with our choice. We booked earlier in the day and were glad we did as the place isn't large and was full. We were on the ground floor of what is essentially a large house... More

We went on to this restaurant after reading great reviews of it and it did not disappoint us. Every dish we ordered was delicious, the service was good and they didn't mind that we were the last to leave, they did not hurry us.

The title says 99% of it. We went for their special (50 pp in by 6 out by 730) and I wasn't super impressed. The price was good compared to other places in Sydney, but the swordfish was just a piece of fish with a sauce that tasted like cucumber sauce and the prawn dumplings were kind of tough. I... More

Our hotel secured reservation for us. We were seated promptly upon arrival and enjoyed great service, great seafood and great wine by glass from Victoria. It was perfect for us... comfortable, friendly, efficient. We left saying... Wow! It was that good...going back.

I visit Australia often and never miss a visit to Fish At The Rocks. This trip I didn't have reservations and I was lucky enough to be seated. I highly recommend reservation. Great seafood. Terrific service. Great vibe. I love this place.

The Restaurant was recommended by friends and so pleased I gave it a try. This Restaurant has a nice cosy feel about it as it is not large. The food was outstanding, the Specials board offered a good range of options and the Yamba Prawns were delicious along with Whiting and Salmon. Excellent fresh seafood cooked to perfection, wine list... More

We went two weeks ago with a group of 10 people. It was a very hot night and the air-con was blowing over the top of us and we got no cooling effect whatsoever. The seafood was very good and quite inventive in its presentation. It has an excellent wine list although we took our own on this occasion. I... More
