Another new to TheFork restaurant is River Quay Fish in South Bank. Cooking up a storm of  Seafood cuisine, the menu features everything from small plates to bigger main dishes and dessert so you can pick and choose as little or as much as you want. A few of our favourites (if we could only name a few) would have to be the fish tacos, Mooloolaba sword fish, coconut crumbed prawns and of course, we can’t go past the sticky date pudding for dessert.
