After finding this little hidden jem, we were lucky to get a table. Staff were really friendly and the fresh seafood was great, just what we were looking for. The share plate and grease seafood salad were stand outs.

Early dinner for 5 of us and this was a great choice. Great value in their special menu and a la carte didn't disappoint. Service was friendly, efficient and unpretentious.I'd recommend oysters, calamari and snapper. Necessary to book as it is rightly very popular.

Came here on friend’s recommendation. Service slow and unfriendly. Food very average. Nothing to make it stand out. Overpriced. Avoid.

I have been to Nicks also many times which I also enjoy. Fish at the Rocks does not have same outlook however I prefer the food quality and the restaurant is a lot quieter where you can actually talk to people.

Yes, you can book in advance much earlier than 24 hours. As far as I am aware, you are able to choose from the menu for the early bird dinner.
