We have always liked this fish restaurant. Light, airy, and uncluttered with generous marble tables. Excellent and attentive service led by the immutable Garth. The food is generous and good. No jabberwocky, just really good food.

What a great little restaurant, whilst quite small you didn't feel claustrophobic, quite romantic in a way, the staff are superb and the food is amazing. We had a sharing seafood platter to start and then an delicious Asian style stuffed barramundi with a Thai red curry sauce.... We absolutely come back here again...

The menu is created on a chalkboard and provided for your perusal right at your table. There are probably 15 tables in the place - pretty intimate. Good wine choices. Had the Orange Roughy Special and it was delicious. Highly recommended.

based on trip advisor reports we were looking forward to this as the last and best restaurant of the 3 nights in sydney .Unfortunately the food was best described as basic fish and chips for my wife and my mixed fish dish seemed to be in a consomme rather than a sauce. the previous night we ate at William Blue...

First time visit - the food & service was very good. Prices were good as was the atmosphere. I had the whiting fish which was very good. Everyone enjoyed the choices they made for dinner. Price was good, not jacked up. I would come here again.

Booked a table here , which you will need to do as it is very popular ,due to the wonderful food they serve up. My wife had a starter of mussels which were the best she ever had , red snapper for main course was also superb.

I booked in advance ( a must) and we had a wonderful meal, great service and lovely friendly calm atmosphere. While we were there they must have turned away at least a dozen people as they were full all evening. We never felt hurried and the food was great. A real mix of customers too, from romantic couples, business men... More

The hotel we were staying at overlooked Circular Quay so we decided to walk the 15 minutes to Kent Street to enjoy what I hoped would be a very nice seafood meal. I was not disappointed. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the staff were very attentive. We were seated at ground level but there is a higher level... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the wait staff is very pleasant. We had lovely starter fresh oysters, scallops which were cooked to perfections, prawns and ravioli which were so gooooood!!!! I would highly recommend reservations because apparently this is a local favorite.

Agree with others: great fish, excellent service. Casual and quaint (tables close to one another) and think there was an upper level which we didn't see, however this doesn't detract from the quality as well as the presentation of the food. Apparently quite popular so suggest one books a table (our concierge made our booking).

Thank HPS-TX
