Feed the family fresh seafood during the week or let your hair down and drink like a fish on the weekend. That’s the concept behind Daniel and Amelia Miletic’s new seafood eatery, One Fish Two Fish.

The venue opened in an old Queenslander at Kangaroo Point in February. Before that it was home to Banter Bar and Seafood, which chef Daniel (formerly of the Gold Coast’s The Fish House) helped set up for then owners the Singleton family, who continue to operate The Pineapple Hotel across the road.

The tongue and groove wooden detailing remains, as does the timber bar at the front of the venue. But the Miletics have installed new furniture and brightened the insides with a dash more white paint. The venue is now made up of three clearly defined areas, the idea being for customers to enjoy the space in different ways.

“You can come in two or three times a week and have a different experience,” Amelia says.

The 35-seat bar area at the front, with its mix of high and low tables, pours five different beers, including Balter Brewing’s XPA and Captain Sensible. Three more taps are reserved for Espresso Martinis, Pimm’s and peach spritzes. The wine list is relatively concise with 10 whites, nine reds and five rosés.

Through the bar and up a few stairs you’ll find the restaurant area. Made up of three smaller rooms, it seats about 45 people. A handsome back deck can take more diners and will also be used as a function space.

One of the best things about One Fish Two Fish is being able to order the full menu no matter where you are seated. The one exception is the “seacuterie” platter, which features cooked tiger prawns, kingfish sashimi and flounder goujons – it’s available over the bar with two glasses of wine for $35.

Daniel’s menu otherwise features whole salt-baked fish of the day and seafood risotto alongside more casual fare such as a “quarter flounder” burger and rainbow Cajun fish taco nachos. The food is inspired by his Mediterranean heritage and dishes the Miletics devoured during a honeymoon on Italy’s Amalfi Coast.

“We had things like the salt-baked fish over there and I saw how it was done so we thought we’d bring it back to Brisbane,” Daniel says.

In addition to bottomless seafood lunches on Sundays and specials for mums on Mondays, One Fish Two Fish will also host Red Fish Blue Fish dinners once a month, where Daniel will collaborate with Australian and international chefs to create special one-off menus.
