Went searching for the best fish & chips in Sydney and discovered that the very best seafood was being served on virtually every corner in town. After sifting the riff from the raft and the silly from the nonsensical, we focused on Fish on Fifth...More

Four of us enjoyed our food here and we mainly went for fish options and soup options. Both the chowder and the borscht were tasty and so thick we couldn't sink our crackers into them. We thought the food was a bargain for the size...More

Stopped in for fish and chips but could get the fish grilled so went that route. The halibut grilled was excellent with a side of seafood chowder. Would definitely return if in the area

Fish on Fifth is a casual fun spot for a drink and appies or a great lunch. The relaxed atmosphere is great and the staff are very friendly. Enjoy Fish and Chips with a local beer or glass of wine.

Ordered calamari, popcorn shrimp and a caesar salad to go. All of it was very good and the portion was large enough for leftovers. Definitely would go back if in town to try other items off the menu. Service was very good.

Comfortable and quirky diner. Where else will you find ropes and knot directions on the table, or trivial pursuit cards beside the salt and pepper. Had the chowder- very good. 2 pc halibut, one grilled one deep fried. And grilled salmon and fries. The batter...More

We stopped by to try their fishing and chips. We had heard they were pretty good and wanted to see what they had. The Cod was excellent probably could have had one piece instead of two because they were pretty large. The seafood chowder was...More

Depends on the type of fish. It would cost around 14 for salmon up to 19 for halibut. I believe they have cod and haddock as well.
