We found the Goldfish on a list of suggested high level restaurants in the Pokolbin area, this couldn't have been more inaccurate! I would certainly not suggest to anyone coming here, the food was almost inedible and my partners wine was not what you'd expect in wine country! If you are thinking of coming here I suggest only cocktails (which... More

Grateful that they could accommodate us last minute on Valentines Day, we had very nice dinner. Everything we tried was tasty, and as mentioned by other reviews, excellent cocktails. Wine list had plenty of variety at reasonable prices. Service was predictably slow considering it was VD, but servers were friendly and helpful. Would love to come back for a show... More

Good prices, fabulous cocktail choice, amazing pizza ( thin crust & perfect amount of topping), quick service & very friendly guys serving. We needed a quick lunch & this place was just right. Had flathead tacos, 1 each to start, then a pizza to share. Although it was so good, I could easily eaten a full one. If I lived... More

Been to this place on many occasions and every time its always excellent. The casual relaxed atmosphere is great. Outside you can sit near a water feature or overlooking the green grass of Roche Estate. Both are great options. Decor inside is nice and is accompanied by nicely dimly lit lights. Ordered a beautiful cocktail. French 75 it was called.... More

We were booked to go for a romantic dinner at Muse. Due to a power outage they were unable to open that night so we ended up at Goldfish Bar & Kitchen. Not really comparable I guess but we weren't left with much choice. Thank goodness some places have generators. The food was quite good although pricey for a pub... More

The menu looked interesting,we were informed it was a 'progressive' menu!! The young manager took our orders,one starter and three main courses. The whitebait arrived promptly and was delicious.Then......king prawns arrived and were eaten hot,barramundi arrived and was eaten hot,finally after a considerable wait,the pizza arrived! Considering we went out to eat together,it was a disaster. No complaints about the... More

What a great little spot, atmosphere, food, wine, scenery. It really doesn't get better especially when the food matches that experience. Beef tartar and whitebait yummmo yummo so good. The complex has some great options to use all your avail time. Thankyou for a great lunch on our first day.
