“Excellent Seafood abd fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

The logo looks like two fish playing and is perfect for the restaurant. I had a dozen Oysters and my wife had the best local fish of the trip. The view is absolutely spectacular looking across the Circular Quay to the Opera House or the bridge. Outdoor patio seating was great but got a triffle cold by end of the meal with the wind of the water.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

I would have given it 4.5 but there is no option for that. I can't give it a 5 cos the service was just a little slow. Not terrible but they could have been a little more attentive.

Having said all that, the food was excellent. The oysters were amazingly fresh, the fish and chips was a very large portion and soooo fresh. I would certainly recommend it to friends and return again.

“Location fantastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were given a voucher as a Birthday present, to be used for lunch or dinner. This provided good value, for what is normally a pricey restaurant that trades on its location. The voucher provides a fixed 3 course menu for two people, with a choice from 2 main and 2 dessert options. Included is a glass of champagne to start. The food was well presented. The Duck breast I had was a little underdone for my liking, but others may have been satisfied, but the Coral Trout my wife had was perfectly cooked. To go with the meal, we selected a bottle of Rose from the wine list, which has a good representation of Australian wines, but are expensive, compared to bottle shop prices. But a location such as this, looking at the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge would have high operating costs and it is reasonable that this has to be paid for somehow, and the only income source is the food and drink. With the prepaid voucher, I rate the experience as Good.

“View is the only winner!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

So we bought the deal off Travel Zoo...that doesn't mean that quality or service should be compromised!!
Service was miserable; it appeared that the staff weren't happy!
We waited for 45/60 mins for our entree... And the wait for main course wasnt that great either! In fact, our additional sides arrived first.
The restaurant was closing for refurbishment of the kitchen tonight and it was the first thing that the staff were saying as an excuse for the poor / slow service. Front of house should be getting an upgrade as well, as you could be mistaken for being in an RSL club (apart from the view!).
Overall a really disappointing experience. Perhaps tourists know no different, but we can do so much better and not just rely on the view to mesmerize!

“Beautiful food in a magical setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We enjoyed a truly delicious meal at this lovely restaurant. The service was superb from the first moment we were escorted to a window table with unsurpassable views across the harbour to the Opera House. The food was beautifully prepared and served. All in all, a most memorable experience.
