The food was outstanding.

We ordered the prawns to peel which were delicious.

Then it was 2 reverse seared sirloin steaks which just melted in your mouth along with some fries, a tomato & spinach salad with basil oil.

The only complaint would be the metal wiring that is situated across the decking area where you eat on the terrace is very hard to see & could be dangerous if it’s not pointed out to you.

But staff were friendly, food was divine & overall it was a great evening.

With Vivid in action a lot of noise around. Overall we really enjoyed our dinner but wine prices are right at the top end, which disappoints. I have lunched with you on several occasions this year and have always been very satisfied. Would recommend to anyone.

Great service, fantastic table. Excellent quality of seafood and seafood platter was a bit different rather than just fried

Some nice fish fillet would have added some substance to the platter

Wine reasonablly priced

An action packed night during Vivid. Despite the throngs and the din, the service was professional, with the courses coming out promptly. Competent rather than exceptional meals (salmon, barramundi).

If you can make it here during the remaining few evenings of Vivid, you’ll be privileged to enjoy the Gudjal installation, with its mesmerising beauty, in addition to the delicious food and drink options at Love.Fish.

This is the place for fresh seafood - especially fish and chips (deep fried flathead or red-spot whiting) and also for prawns and other classic seafood dishes. Decent range of entree's and mains, particularly like the freshly shucked oysters. Not a huge menu list, but plenty of variety. Small but interesting wine list, although beer choice is small and narrow. Great sitting at an outside table and the table staff are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.

Really happy with our choice to dine at Lovefish for Mother’s day!

Loved the way the menu was set out to have more flexibility with what to serve your fish with!

Fish was all fresh and cooked perfectly

We didn’t love the Polenta chips- have had better- these were a little dry!

But otherwise the love chocolate desert was the perfect finish!

The seafood platter was very disappointing. For $165 you expect to have more than a few prawns, three cubes of smoked salmon, 3 slithers of sardines etc Not great value for money on the platter. Will not be ordering the platter again.

Entrees were the most reasonable out of all the food chosen.

Service was outstanding by one waiter in particular.

They know how to cook seafood. Everything was delish and fresh. The king prawns were amazing!! The seafood platter is definitely worth it as you get a selection of most of the entrees on offer. We tried the crab meat squid ink linguine and that was yummm. The brussel sprouts was a great side. Overall we had a great experience.

Unfortunately the service tonight was terrible. The girl serving our table had absolutely no personality at all, nor seemed to care about helping us. She was downright rude while we were trying to decide on wine, rather than offering any help to our American guests she offered to come back in two minutes. We had to ask what the specials were. We got poured the first glass of water and wine and that was it - all night. Luckily we were sitting next to where the water bottles were as we had to help ourselves. What is it with service or the lack of lately?? The food was good, not great. I had the salt & pepper calamari which was tasteless, no pepper there. I asked for some more tartar sauce only to find that we were charged $3 for the thimble sized extra sauce. When it came time to pay the bill, we gave two credit cards and told her we were splitting the bill and she said 'tell me how much that is'. The American's wanted to add the tip to their card and were clearly struggling with the machine and I asked her if she could go over and help them as the machine had been passed to them on the other side of the table to where she was standing. That's when I complained to her superior . Grrr why aren't these staff taught to serve and why don't they care, if that's the job you've chosen to do, do it well.

We went back to this restaurant as we enjoyed it immensely back in January. This time , however, we were disappointed. The service was slow despite a holiday surcharge on the long weekend and the food was below expectations. The entrees of calamari & octopus were fine but the squid ink crab linguine was quite dry and tasteless with hardly any crab. We will still return to this restaurant as it has a nice ambience, is kid friendly and in a good location for meeting up with friends and visitors staying in the city.
