One Fish Two Fish
One Fish Two Fish is a gorgeous seafood restaurant and bar with the wow factor, occupying a beautifully renovated Queenslander on a prominent Kangaroo Point corner.
Located opposite the Pineapple Hotel, One Fish Two Fish is where traditional fish and chips meet sublime seafood (and other) dishes with a creative twist, thanks to the talents of the chef/owner who is ex-Fish House at Burleigh.
The décor is a match for the food, with gleaming polished timber floors, white VJs, picture rails and fretwork and an enclosed verandah out back with benches, bar stools and bi-fold windows to let in the breezes and local park vistas.
The front of the restaurant/bar, which is where the bar and takeaway section are, has a Hamptons meets-Queensland vibe a stunning feature wall, while the rest of the venue features chic dining nooks with hanging woven cane light fittings.
