Service & Food highly recommended. I had the pleasure of joining in on an outing, prior to Xmas, with a lovely group of people where we ended our day by going to the Two Fish Cafe. The staff were very obliging, nothing was too much...trouble & the food was lovely.More

Go there if you're into fish or especially into fish&chips. This nice restaurant has it all and more importantly, it's very tasty. Highly recommended

Just a quick coffee stop and ended up a great experience. From the lovely coffee, beautiful mug, lovely pastries, beautiful Brownie, even the tomato sauce and aioli was top shelf. The cabinet food looked amazing and the other guests had beautiful looking food. And oh...the staff were lovely and a big shout out to the barister. Topped off with some super chilled music. Top work guys.More

Really important to have access, especially for travelers ! Definitely not going backMore

Great coffee, nice hot cheese muffin/scone. Prices were up there, not what I would call on the cheaper side but what I would expect a boutique cafe to charge. Unfortunately no tables left and I was actually looking to have a sit down lunch and...order a meal but because it was so cold outside went with a takeaway cappaccino and scone.I'd suggest more tables if they could fit them in ...More

Popped into Two fish on Tuesday for brunch while the car was getting serviced. As usual the food and coffee was great. We had to eat and run as it was warmer outside than inside the cafe. The gorgeous waitress was rubbing her hands and...I noticed everyone had left there coats and scarfs on while eating. Im sure a couple of heater would warm that place in no time especially when there is a full house.More
