Had the hake cutlets and calamari strips. Crumbed calamari strips were good. Chips were good. Hake was mushy with a slight ammonia taste. Had a couple of bites but couldn't finish it. I mentioned to the waitress and that was the last I heard of...it. Been here 3 times and 2 out of 3 it was a miss. Funny thing is, we often buy fresh fish here.. anyway, will give the restaurant a skip in future.More

Each year we travel, play golf and ensure that we experience the local eateries. Freshline Fish has always been included & appreciated. This year we rate it average & a very lucky average. Baby kingklip dry, calamari stringy and tasteless, mug of prawns over cooked...saved only by a good peri peri sauce . A very disappointing meal with not a single ecstatic review. Your waiters were attentive and helpfulMore

Another pleasing visit and the improvement with plants and hanging baskets was good to seet. As usual, the food was first class. One really jarring note was the blaring piped music which spoilt the atmosphere, was unnecessary and far too loud. The waitron seemed little...interested when we suggested to her that perhaps the music shouldn't be so loud, if necessary at all.More

What a nice experience. The food was fresh and service was snappy. Portions were big enough for two people. Loved the sand underneath our feet.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service! Also loved the relaxed feet-in-the-sand atmosphere and a kiddies play area is always a bonus!

Much praise for this lovely restaurant in a super special setting. Don't judge a book by its cover, comes to mind when you enter this place. So when you see the FRESHLINE FISHERIES sign on your way to THESEN ISLAND, don't hesitate to take the...turn. You will be so pleasantly surprised! Best fish in town...More

Unpretentious little place. Good fish and oysters. Prawns are surprisingly expensive. Can be a bit crowed, and service can be a bit slow.

Fantastic fish! Don’t let the outside fool you - head in and enjoy a cheerful, open space with plenty of character. Comfortable picnic style tables, sand on the floor, hanging baskets of flowers. Throw in friendly staff add a good selection of seafood and you...have a good lunch spot! Our gosh was fresh fresh. Prices are good value for money - portions are large. Animal friendly too - we had our mini duchshund with us.More

After eating here for six years it is still the best fish restaurant in the world. What more do you want to know?
