What makes this Restaurant the leader in it's field? It is consistently excellent, staff and service second to none, all meals presented together is super quick time.. we have nothing to compare to Fish on the Edge... it is in a class all of it's own, don't believe us, try for yourself!

Chunky fish, good batter, excellent chips, very generous serves - could do one for 2 people. A bit slow.

Ordered scallops as entree to share, fish chowder and grilled fish as mains. Scallops were good and mains were average. Half of the bread roll served with the chowder was stone cold and other half warm which detracted from enjoying my meal. Restaurant prices for an average meal.

We had a late lunch which was good because we missed the rush. Excellent service from lovely staff and two great meals. Plenty of fresh fish on offer too. Highly recommended.

First time here since the owners have taken over.. have never seen the place so full.. have heard nothing but great reports as of late so I had to see for myself. Mine and my partners meals were amazing. Couldn't fault them or the service.. So happy to find a great place with gluten free options.. We'll be back :)
