“Good fish”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

This place is always packed - a good sign.

Our party of 5 was squeezed in without a booking, a piece of luck.

Service was prompt and when my tuna steak arrived well done rather than seared it was turned around in 5 minutes. We were very very impressed.

We will be back!

“Depndable Fish Restaurant”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Good value, dependable, unpretentious fish restaurant in a corner of Pinelands.
Easy parking, booking for the restaurant is usually essential.
They have specials based on the day of the week and a core of loyal regular customers.
Mostly fish but there are some non-fish dishes.
Good place for a relaxed meal with friends.
Licenced but byo ok for a "corkage" fee.

“Honest meals to a good price with swift service”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

This is a great place for a quick bite when you want to get some decent food. I am very critical, most others would give it a 4 but that is in my world reserved for places like Five Flies and the five for Laserre or Comme Chez soi so this is a good restaurant thou not world class.

“Our favourite fish restaurant”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 via mobile

We are so fortunate to have this excellent fish restaurant right on our doorstep. Always take friends there as we are never disappointed and a first place of call for my USA cousin for their grilled calamari. The specials board is a pleasure and enjoy the fact that often there will be something new on the menu.

“Booking essential”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

Joe Fish is a delight! A quaint little restaurant tucked onto the corner of Howard Centre shopping Mall. The menu is extensive, with a wide variety other than seafood also on offer. Service is always attentive and efficient and the food delicious (although sometimes rather oily). I would recommend the mussels with chips, the fish pie or any of their very reasonably priced, daily specials. As the restaurant tends to get very busy during peak mealtimes, and is quite tiny, booking is definitely advised.
