Food was very good and the service was friendly but what we didn't like was waiting over an hour between entree and main course. It did not seem to be that busy so don't know what was happening.

The oysters were good, but the spiciness of the sauce clearly covered the taste. The shrimps didn't make a very fresh impression anymore. The scallops were good, the salmon itself cooked too far. The wine selection was suitable. We were absolutely dissatisfied with the inflexibility of the service. The exchange of the dessert was only possible for a surcharge, the exchange of the dessert wine not at all. With 125 AUD for the menu with accompanying wines one can expect more accommodating as a gue

Delicious meal. Service very slow and incorrect side given to us. Seemed to be understaffed.

The meal was amazing!! Highly recommend the Salmon with lentils. A very memorable meal. We were looked after very well and the staff were so friendly and attentive with just the right balance of being there to help and allowing you to relax with loved ones. Kid friendly with our daughter being treated like a princess. We will be back before we go!

We initially had two waiting staff which was quickly sorted out but a shame we sat outside as we'd prebooked a month before. The bugs were good but the crowd of children, who had moved from their parents large table inside, were so noisy playing by the entrance it took a shine off yhe evening. I'm sure their family enjoyed the peace and ambience inside.

Food was fabulous. Delicious and well cooked! Service was appalling. Our waitress was inattentive and slow. Kids orders slow. Requests for children’s activities pack took a long time. Water was not topped up.

When the bill came, we disputed why kids meals were charged as we fulfilled the terms and conditions for free kids meals. We pointed out that in fact it had been less than 90min since we’ve ordered and he honoured the free meals but was defensive and blamed our online booking.

This is the BEST seafood restaurant experience I have had!
Those scallops! YUM! The service was fantastic! And that desert cocktail at the end!!!
We shared 2 entrees and 2 mains. The servings were generous and left us very content!
Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough!

Overall I found the food very ordinary. Food was cold when it arrived at the table. My partner ate none of food she found the prawns tasteless and the pork belly to cold to eat. My oysters were disappointing and the tuna was too black on the outside and therefore tasted like charcoal. Prices we're outrageous in light of the quality of the meal. Will not go back !

Went for a special dinner for the last night of our honeymoon- staff could not have been friendlier and more accommodating, making the night that much more special. The seafood dishes were outstanding, as were the thoughtful - and delicious - wine pairings. Can not recommend enough.

I recommend the Whole Baby Barramundi. It was very tender and well cooked. I also like that even during the rainy season, you can sit outside under cover without getting wet.

We have been here many times last year and we where looking forward to eating here again. Yesterday we where a bit disappointed with the food also they the lack of staff as they where run of there feet and was not able to attend the table properly . Also one of the staff That was washing cutlery was throwing It around like he was in a bad mood It was hard to hear anything over the noise .. hopefully it will be better again next time as we do love the restaurant.

The quality was good. But i felt the Calamari was over priced for 4 little pieces.
The Chowder was good.

One of our highlights of Port Douglas on our Honeymoon. We found the service we received at other restaurants was rather flat and we thought that was the norm of the town until we came to 2Fish. The staff were excellent with their energy and passion for the restaurant. The Barramundi was awesome too!!

Very good food along with friendly, efficient service. Generally pleasant, calm atmosphere but perhaps decor and ambience a little spartan and cold.

2Fish - The friendly staff, the delightful cocktails, the relaxed vibe as we walked in to be greeted by the head waitress. The feeling that we are treated as special guests due to the ongoing service being offered by the staff - but this is how the staff make all patrons feel!
The meals including entree, mains were exquisite as usual! For this reason we are continually coming back to 2Fish every time we visit Port Douglas. We’ve been returning since 2013 & it is always well worth the wait!

Everything was great except for the waiter. He didn't provide cutlery and didn't put through our dessert request amongst other things. The other staff picked up the slack and were fantastic. Been to 2 fish may times and will go back. Great food

Return visit after a delightful visit in February, and was not disappointed. Attentive staff with relaxed manner, who indulged our challenge in choosing from the quality menu and the day's specials. Good wine list at reasonable mid market prices. Sat outside on a pavement table and enjoyed the buzz of conversation drifting over from the main restaurant area. Great food and an evening thoroughly enjoyed by all of us; yet again 😊

Entres are great (especially the scallops). Unfortunately, 2fish has found new ways to ruin a nice piece of fish (shitake mushrooms, chilli, bok choy, asian salad). Gone are the days when they have a stunning piece of crispy skinned barramundi without the asian influence. It's a shame. (If you like the asian influence, you'll love their fish mains.) Having eaten here over the past 5 years, it used to be a mandatory dining experience, now I'm left a little disappointed. Good, but no longer great.
