Very nice place to go for dinner. Greeted with friendliness, table service was exceptional as was the presentation. Meals were fabulous. Salt n Pepper squid and Fillet Mignon. Would love to take guests there for the experience.

Beautiful Venue but forgettable food. Potato salad, Capsicum salad and forgettable Mesculen salad that looked like it had just come from a plastic bag at the supermarket. Sausages, dry chunks of chicken and skewers with 2 prawns on followed by a meringue with a miniscule...More

Fisher House is in a lovely old building in a nice garden setting, but unfortunately, the food is like something that would have been cooked up in the 1980s. I went there for a Christmas lunch, and while the conversation was fun, the cuisine put...More
