“Steak at John Dory's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

I have always associated John Dory's with fish, and not being a lover of fish, I have not frequented this restaurant. So it was with great surprise that I found that they also do a steak. It is only now that I see words "fish and grill" after their name, I think I was reading it as grilled fish. The wife and I both ordered a medium blackened steak. It was done to absolute perfection, very tasty and tender. I will definitely be returning to John Dory's, Westville, Pavillion for more of the same.

“a mall food court type of eatery , if you expect this then it's ok”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

nothing special, they are tryoing now the sushi which is actually not bad, but the variety of choice was extremely limited . fishmonger or Ocean basket offer much better , obviously at slightly or deefinitely higher prices . if one looks for simple fish meal before or after a cinema maybe ok

“Won't go back”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2012

I ordered a prawn and chicken curry. It was filled with cut green chillies and burnt my mouth badly.

Used to be my favorite... then they started to use cheap bacon and changed thier special from fillet to rump... really bad move. I have gone from eating there once a week to NEVER!
