The Fish Shop got better and better as the evening went on. It looked good from the outside; really buzzy atmosphere inside. Good menu on the table; even more interesting specials. And a great welcome that turned into seriously great service across the evening. We wandered across shared starters, specials and menu staples and enjoyed every minute. Seemed to be... More

This is a very popular spot although some locals still feel it is over-priced for what is offered. The wine is typically expensive - the food, for what is present, is good however again is over-priced. Plain old fish and chips and a mussel dish should not be that pricey. As were the starters

Great restaurant in the middle of Potts Point. Really good wine list. My faves are the fish and chips (big enough to share between two) and Cos salad. Friendly efficient staff. Restaurant welcomes and can usually accomodate walk-ins, but best to book if you don't want to miss out.

Having discovered the delights of The Fish Shop, we ate here four times during the 8 days we spent in Sydney. The fish was always perfectly cooked and tasty, whether it was blue-eye trevalla, snapper or mackerel. Of the seafood we tried, oysters were fresh, with fabulous flavour, scallops sweet and octopus tender. They also do a delicious salad, quinoa... More

We both love fresh fish and Australian wines and spend a good deal of time trying to find superlative dishes and a 'nice drop'. The skill of the cooks are quite unique.To serve fish... More

We went twice to the Fish shop for dinner and were always pleased with the food. while the menu is limited, you will always find a good selection of fish and sea food. Ask for their recommendation and their catch of the day.
