Not too busy an evening and we relaxed in the lounge with our 4month old son in the pram. Ordered a number of the small dishes to start; crab, kingfish, tacos, oysters, with some sparkling wine to go with, and we were pleasantly impressed. The oysters were stunning, and the small share meals are pieced together quite nicely with complimentary... More

We arrived prior to 6pm (the time the full menu starts) on a very quiet weeknight, placed our order early, and still waited half an hour for the first plate to come out (4 oysters!), which was only the beginning. We ordered a variety of small and 'large' plates and while they were quite tasty were very small for the... More

We immensely enjoyed our time spent here. We experienced our first cocktail making class and it was absolutely fantastic. They were able to accommodate a group of 22 highly excitable females celebrating a hens day. The staff were exceptional and made the day and entire experience one to never forget. Lunch afterwards was superb as well, they were attentive and... More

Goldfish is an eclectic mix of bar, restaurant, good food, inspiring menu unique atmosphere. The ambience is nice but they almost get it right. The attentive service when you arrive becomes very on and off as the night went on. The selection of spirits at the bar is one of the best I have seen around the world and the... More

Was visiting the Roche Estate as part of a lazy long week-end and came across Goldfish. Being late-ish on a Friday afternoon, not many customers worked in our favour as the standard and attentiveness of customer service was outstanding. From sublime cocktails to juicy fish tacos this was a lovely way to while away a Friday afternoon.
