Not worth a hat or a trip
Everything is just fine. Not special but fine. There is a tendency to dominate some wonderful seafood and primary tastes with too many complicated flavours and other dominant tastes. Perhaps the best in Kingscliff? But really it is insulting to other hatted restaurants for Fins to have a hat too.


An excellent experience
I have dined at Fins several times now, each time I am delighted with the level of care and knowledge of the staff. The food is absolutely amazing, better fish could not be found anywhere. The menu provides a great selection of unique meals that are second to none. I can’t wait for my next dining experience at Fins!


My girlfriend & i had a 7 course degustation with matched wines recently & had a wonderful evening with the highlight the service from a mid 20's waitress who was very knowledgeable on the food, wines & restaurant industry - an asset to the business. Unfortunately the setting isn't great but the food, wine & service outweigh that.


We have eaten here many times and the food is always outstanding. The service is brilliant and the staff very knowlegable and helpful.


Outstanding.. coming from Sydney, where my expectations are high, this place far outdoes most of the top restaurants in the city. The "oyster bar" was fun, truly the freshest I've ever experienced. Our quirky waiter was a walking wine book and she recommended sherry (!) which really worked. Service was impeccable, friendly and informative. The food was excellent- seafood at it's best. I wish this place was in Sydney!


Exceptional seafood with a great cellar and excellent wine/food matching advice.
