    We really enjoyed our meal here tonight lovely welcome and attentive service. The food was excellent with some innovative touches - roasted broccoli with spiced prawn butter and kale salt, toasted sourdough with smoked oyster butter, Well done team thank you.

    Stopped over in port Macquarie for a night on a long drive and booked Bills a couple of days before. A little hesitant as they were bringing out a new menu that night and we could not view it before attending. We were extremely impressed. The food was incredible. Who’d thought broccoli could be so delicious!!! My husband had the daily special of king fish with jalapeño and roast pepper sauce. Great balance of flavours. I had the barramundi pie which was like a warm blanket in front of a fire. Just left me so warm cosy and fulfilled. Atmosphere was intimate and staff even though run off their feet were as tentative as they could be.

    Fabulous taster seafood menu evening with top notch paired wines. Frankly, a bargain for the quality, service and atmosphere. Bill's continues to get my rating as the BEST in Port Mac!

    This was our first time dining at Bill's Fishhouse, and our expectations were high for a great meal. However, we left underwhelmed by our over cooked salmon, and a promised 12 minute cook time for chocolate fondant taking more like 40 minutes (even though the staff apologized for the delay). Net of it, Bill's seems like a nice place, likely worth a second try, but our experience was less than what we expected...and first impressions count.

    Luckily we booked on line the day before as it was nearly full when we arrived. Great welcome and run through the specials without making a meal of it. We shared a prawn starter and then salmon which was cooked to perfection. Great atmoshere, food and people. You can watch the chefs prepare it which I like, it means they are "involved" too. Go and enjoy!

    We had a great night. From the moment we arrived we knew this was going to be good, BUT our food was AMAZING! The only downside for us was that it was very noisy.

    Excellent service from welcoming to settling the bill. Food was tasty. Only small serves but was enough for us with entree and main meal. Would recommend Bill's.

    Food was great!. We unfortunately found staff very defensive when we made a request to have the courses brought out quickly (consecutively) because of young kids getting tired. We made the request to benefit the kids, but the waitress made the assumption we were accusing her of doing something wrong , which was not the case at all. Only her defensiveness (repeatedly) made us feel unwelcome and unpleasant x

    Delicious food, lovingly prepared, well presented and generously proportioned. We combined the seafood for two (spectacular natural oysters!) with some interesting, punchy and yummy cocktails. The waitstaff were fabulous, very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu, and the kitchen staff were able to accommodate our dietary requirements. This place gets super busy so definitely best to book ahead. Well worth a visit or three!

    It was the first time. Everything was very good, the starter, prawns, vegatables, bolonese for the kids... a beautiful dinner. Maybe a little too noisy and hot inside.

    Food was delicious. Barramundi farmed how sad. Amazed a seafood restaurant did not have fish and chips which is my favourite on the menu. Deserts. Nothing on menu that appealed to anyone at our table.

    Best food we have had since being in Port Macquarie, truly amazing meals we had the best night. There were hidden flavours in each meal that had us thinking, was great fun along with a few cocktails all in all it is our new 5star dinner treat.

    Main foods and desserts are pretty good, highly recommend the Prawns with Bills’s sauce, but the oysters and prawns are not very fresh and also the size are little bit small.
