Love.fish was a great dining experience when we went there for a family birthday lunch. The staff were very helpful and the service was great. The food was delicious, for it's price we wouldn't recommend the seafood platter as we felt it didn't have as much as other restaurants sea food platters however every other dish we got was fantastic. We got the brussel sprouts side dish after reading a review and so glad we did. They are delicious and are a must try! They also catered for everyone and had a vegan special and a vegan dessert which were both great.

The food was excellent especially their salads, the brussel sprouts was a stand out and the baby spinach & slaw was also good.
Our Margaret Rivers Savignon Blanc was excellent.
Staff were friendly & helpful 👌👌👌

Really enjoyed our meal here. Compared to some of the louder places along the water, we appreciated the quieter atmosphere and nice spacing between tables. The prices, food and service were just right for us, and we could enjoy a nice view and conversation without shouting at each other.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Love Fish.
The wine pricing is rather expensive which limits the amount ordered.

Hey Peter. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback! Please note the majority of our wine is locally sourced and sustainable from Australian suppliers which often means it is more expensive, but you can sip away knowing you are supporting Australian small businesses, which to us is of prime importance.

We had the barramundi, the Brussels sprouts and the hand cut chips. All were excellent. The skin on the fish was perfectly crisp while the fish was still incredibly moist. Perfectly cooked.

Hey Debuardo! Thanks for taking the time to review us. Over 80% of seafood consumed in Australia is imported. As an Australian seafood restaurant we support local fisherman and fisheries and are very proud of the products we serve. Australian traceable seafood is the foundation of our business and this comes at a cost. We completely understand that pricing is subjective but choosing Australian will always cost more and we believe the value is there in supporting our local industries. Thanks!

This was our third time in a month, Love Fish Is only one of a few restaurants that actually knows how to cook fish to perfection, the service is friendly and quick and offers a simple and relaxed atmosphere, and to top it off its great value as well. The best battered fish with tartare sauce for $19 and if you want chips or a salad is only a few dollars.

Very well cooked Spanish mackerel and good service. The only thing I dislike about love.fish is that you have to order any sides separately otherwise you end up with just a piece or 2 of fish and half a lemon.

Hey Stacy. Thanks for taking the time to review us! We appreciate your feedback and will pass it on to the team. Please note that our reasoning behind serving the fish by itself is so that people have the flexibility to order how they want their fish. We'll be sure it take it onboard though. Thanks!

Had at least three different servers. Sat for at least 20 minutes with the empty cocktails we ordered upon arrival. Had to grab a random server to order wine to go with our meal. Food totally mediocre. Incredibly disappointing since it was so highly rated on opentable.

Food was great, but we dont think we received much value out of the set menu. Service was ok but getting someone’s attention became annoying. Some how our bill got mixed up. Took a little longer than expected to have dinner. Set menu isn’t really worth the time.

Love.fish has great fish! Service was quick and nice. Also did a great job accommodating for allergies.
The only thing I would improve would be maybe making the menu a little more clear. (I was told that I got a side with my fish and agreed to get chips but ending up having to pay for them. )

Only downside is wine seems to be a bit pricey. I know because I am a liquor retailer.
