“Amazing food and great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Ate on Saturday night and I was really impressed with what the team had done ,it was formerly blue angel but the fit out looks great and had great ambience .I had barramundi with skordalia which was the best I had ever had and my partner ate the beef with marrow which was lovely .For dessert I tried the Pannacotta and he had the walnut tart and the flavours were spot on with great presentation.Gina and Luke made us feel at home and even though it was busy still managed to smile and make us laugh.All in all I would definitely recommend Jellyfish

“Heart in the right place but......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Decided to try lunch at this fairly new restaurant with friends, who had been regular diners of the previous restaurant here (Blue Angel).

We parked at the rear of the venue and as we made our way to the front dining area via the side passageway we encountered a very dishevelled looking chef whose whites were certainly not that. Now it's never good to judge a book by it's cover but honestly we did both hope that he was not cooking our food..... (discovered later that he was)

We met our friends at a table on the outside courtyard and after settling our new addition to the family in for a sleep in his stroller, we made ourselves comfortable. It was a little concerning that at 1 p.m. on a Saturday lunchtime that we were only one of three tables and must admit that looking over the foliage at Humid next door with nearly every table full, we felt a bit like the have not's.

Our waitresses were both very friendly and accommodating, presenting us with menus and wine lists and generally making us feel welcome. We had opted for B.Y.O. and enjoyed a glass of wine while we checked out the menu on offer. Our waitress then came to take our order and informed us of the specials. Having both been in the hospitality industry for many years, we decided to play it a little safe, by ordering the slightly less expensive Steak sandwich and the Chicken & salad and both were decent for the price paid.

However our friends chose to have the Barramundi special and at approx $36 each, were left really disappointed and i have to say so would I have been. The fish looked well cooked and the skin crisp but portion size was small, certainly for the price and what left everyone bemused were the eight chips lined up in a row on the wooden board next to the fish.

During our lunch the grotty chef who we'd encountered earlier made two or three trips along the passageway to the local shop for provisions, which made us laugh. Didn't stay for dessert but had amazing gelati up the road.

All in all it was a pleasant enough experience (great company, nice river views) and we wish the team well in their endeavours but we couldn't honestly say that we will be rushing back soon.

“Wedding reception: fanstastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

We recently had our wedding reception here and am so glad we did. More than easy to get along with staff, service was prompt and enthusiastic. Everyone commented on the food, delectable menu was provided for us. Any request was never too much for them. We are looking at Xmas lunch there now. Definately go and enjoy and great night out!
