Taking over the space where we used to find Banter Bar, One Fish Two Fish carries on their forebears legacy as a slightly fancy fish and chippy. Positioned right on the corner of Main Street in Kangaroo Point, One Fish looks like a paper lantern from the street. Inside, the refurbished Queenslander retains a homey sense of comfort against the fresh, white decor, and feels like something closer to a small beachside bar with plenty of window seating and natural light. It’s this pared-back minimalism that lets the food speak for itself.
While they can certainly do a banging fish and chips, One Fish is won't be anchored to any particular style of cuisine. Their menu is a far-reaching exploration of seafood classics and doesn’t really adhere to any particular theme or perspective beyond making sure that fresh seafood is clearly represented throughout their entire menu.
Chippy classics like calamari rings, crumbed whiting, and battered cod get a flash new revamp (with some sexy potato scallops on the side), but One Fish also conjures the Amalfi coast with their seafood risotto, Southern California with Cajun fish tacos, and Oahu beaches with their refreshing poke salad.
If you’re looking to outsource family lunch, One Fish offers a banging two-hour sunday lunch, complete with bottomless rose, for just $69 a person. The repast changes monthly and provides a decent snapshot of their entire operation.
