We dined at Fish last night and had the degustation menu it was really nice each course was perfectly matched by wines, It is nice to not have to spend time looking over a menu which is what degustation is all about! The food especially the lamb was perfectly cooked. We had an excellent waiter BJ and very good service cant fault it!

If the weather was warmer sitting out on one of the balconies that wrap around the restaurant would have topped it as they have spectacular views over the harbour and back towards the city! we will go back in summertime!

Whilst we enjoyed the food at Fish, the young and inexperienced staff took the edge off our dinner. On arriving early for our booking (with a barely quarter full restaurant) we were greeted with a patronising "oh, you're so early!" I wasn't aware that this was against the rules. The waitress advised that she would fetch the maitre'd who was very cool and appeared to sum us up with one look. On being shown to a table in what I would describe as between the bar and the restaurant, we asked for an alternative that was cheerfully given. The waitress described the menu, however all I could concentrate on was the significant amount of hair that she frequently pushed off her face during this pretentious rehearsed speech. She would have failed a food handling certificate on the spot for this sloppiness. The atmosphere in the restaurant was non existent and although our meals were enjoyable for the food alone, we were so unimpressed with the attitude of the haughty maitre'd and waitress that we went elsewhere for dessert.

Best restaurant in town - Great location, good service and the food is superb, while the price is still reasonable, especially the lunch menu.
