A great casual and friendly spot with outdoor seating (and BYO)! An always reliable menu where the calamari is a must. Great for catch ups for couples, family and friends.

Stopped off here for dinner after checking their opening hours on the door for a public holiday earlier in the day. I'd been looking forward to fish and chips with a nice glass of white all afternoon - and it did not disappoint, although in the most surprising way. When I arrived half an hour before their close, after a... More

Just a little corner store with adequate outdoor seating for us and the puppy. Get there early as the place in always crowded due to the simple yet very tasty cooking. BYO and Cash only, but don't worry, it won't break the bank. A good regular for early dining.

This was out second take out of fish and chips form Sea Cow. The first one was quite good, but the last batch wasn't up to the same standard. The food was OK, but for the price point is as good as what would be expected. The fish didn't seem overly fresh.

This is a local for us and specialises in all sort of fresh Seafood. I have to say that I enjoy having a place like Sea Cow near by. Perfect for a Friday night! Ahh and it is BYO. I will recommend the Soft-shell Crab and the Grilled Snapper. This is a great place for all year around. The large... More

Great Local Eatery we frequent when either in a hurry or wanting to unwind after a busy day. Prices are reasonable and choice of fish and seafood is wide. We shared some great crisp whitebait and then a grilled trout and some barramundi. They do wonderful fries and very ordinary but tasty side salads. BYO to wash it down

Shame there aren't two catagories for the two locations as our Balmain experience has been great TWICE. First time was takeaways and have to say the grilled John Dory was possibly best eaten certainly for a takeaway grilled fish. The chips that I wasn't going to eat, were also much better than I remember takeaway chips to be. It wasn't... More

A month open and not yet busy, no atmosphere on a saturday night. Our meal was so so, overcooked chips and ok fish. Good in concept, but nothing special. Needs to to better to survive on the strip it is on. We'd always return to Love Fish in Rozelle over this place.
