    Second time here and still amazing. Whole baked fish , rosemary fries were wonderful. Nice touch was a complimentary espresso martini for my hubby for his birthday. Service was just lovely.

    Good location with breezes off the river, out of the hot sun, within earshot of Social Sundays music on the green. Service was friendly but took a long time to catch a waiter’s attention and nobody ever came back to ask how the food was or if we wanted another drink, coffee or dessert. My husband enjoyed the coconut prawn entree and beer battered fish and chips main. I had the octopus starter and yellowfin tuna main which were both bland and the octopus was chewy. The sweet potato wedges were excellent.

    friendly staff, nice meals with quality fresh ingredients it was a shame we were in the back corner as our guests were from out of town and didn't really get to enjoy the view

    Location really good, food tasty and well presented, cocktails good and not overpriced. Let down by slow service. Waited over an hour for mains.

    Was less than welcoming when we arrived (Sunday afternoon 21.2.21). The female server dismissed us on multiple occasions. There was a lack of engagement to order, checkin, or awareness of us. We waited for half an hour before being asked (we'd had to go up on multiple occasions). When the waiter came over she was short, did not know the wine list (just shrugged when we asked about the wine), and then almost hit my partner in the head with the menu. We wanted to leave at this point, thankfully another server came over and helped us out with some water and had a friendlier tone. In saying that, we noted that the food was very good, the location is beautiful, and both the waiters after the original were warm and friendly (particularly the last waiter - who was lovely), just a very jarring experience to start. In addition, the chef kept coming and out of the venue with metal music blaring on his phone. Made us laugh but could put people off. We had heard really great things about this place, but the professionalism was less than, and possibly needed a manager to ensure the staff were acting with care.

    Great food. Well priced. Good portion sizes and excellent service. A really nice spot to dine, they also do takeaways to picnic down on the grassed area. Would highly recommend.

    Lovely spot on the river, with great service. Food is fairly average, however not terrible. Would go back as some things were really lovely, ie: the calamari, but the burger and coconut prawns were average.

    Excellent spot with great food and service in a really nice location. Lots of choice in the Menu and very fresh seafood. A great experience that we will repeat in time.

    Turned up and they said they didn’t have our booking, but seated us anyway. Food was pretty good, wine and cocktails were excellent, waitress was rarely seen.

    We ordered the seafood for two. The fish was quite rubbery and a big portion of the dish was white bait, which we tried but didn’t like at all. The calamari was lovely. Very small oysters and prawns.

    Had the whole fried gold band snapper and was spectacular. Sun going down, live music on the green. Great Valentine's. Good wine list and staff were attentive.

    Food was so perfectly cooked and well priced for decent sea food. Everything was so fresh. Was a busy little spot but service was reasonably quick with the amount of people.

    We've been twice previously and both times were far better than tonight. The food has taken a large dive in quality and serving size seemed less also. Rather disappointed since we talked others into coming for a birthday dinner after our previous experience. We won't be coming back again after tonight sadly.

    This restaurant was a good choice as it had been a while since visiting Southbank. The food service was quite good although the drinks could have had more attention. The only disappointment was that you couldn’t order the oysters as there were only enough for the seafood platters, so maybe ask prior. I’d be happy to visit River Quay Fish again.

    Great food, staff were a bit out of sync but lovely. We had to ask to order food as no one asked for a long time and the wait for the food was very long, we didn’t get mains until over a hour of being there. There was a party so of course it’s going to be longer. Overall great.

    I go to this restaurant regularly as the food is superb and the view to die for. Wait staff are nice but sometimes the service however could be better as I have seen some customers complain.
