The food was excellent and the staff professional, unobtrusive and yet attentive. We had a lovely view over the park. The portions could have been a bit larger for the price.

My Boyfriend and I came here and were greeted by an attentive waitress called Mary who went above and beyond to help us and advised us on dishes that were incredible! We were so thrilled with the wonderful dining experience. Food, wine, view and service were all fantastic! I would recommend this place to anyone who loves great seafood!

We had a wonderful lunch. I had salt and pepper soft shell crab with squid ink fettuccine and my wife had seafood paella with bugs and chorizo. Quality of both dishes was excellent, service was fast, friendly and efficient and the surroundings excellent. Servings a little on the small side but all in all very good.

Rarely do I find a menu where I have so much trouble choosing a dish. Everything looked so good. Everything coming out of the kitchen past our table was so appealing. I had the clam and corn chowder which was delicious, particularly with the umami swirl of truffle oil on top. My husband had the pan fried mahi mahi which... More

We had dinner as a table of 5 plus kids. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Lots of seafood dishes to choose from. I liked the idea of the fish menu allowing you to choose your type of fish and then the way it was cooked/served with. My meal was forgotten so that was a bit disappointing when I had to wait...

Definitely a must visit. We went without a reservation and were seated immediately, wait staff were attentive, funny and friendly. The food choices were great but my husband and I both opted for fish dishes that were cooked perfectly. My husband (a big meat eater normally) opted for a fish menu option and stated it's hands down the best meal... More

Indescribable. Exceptional food, drinks, and service. Superb. As their motto says, “It's all about tha fish.” And it truly is. The menu is excellent with a wide range of dishes, and their cocktail list the same. I highly recommend anyone visiting or living in Cairns have many meals at Tha Fish.

Pleasant restaurant with fresh seafood. Situated on the pier Tha fish has a great location. The seafood is fresh and staff is very very pleasant. We eat there shrimp risotto which was delicious and after that fish fillet which was ok. One pleasant dinner.
