This is a good place for fresh reasonably priced seafood.the atmosphere is good as you can walk around to see the boats unloading their catch and then go onto Muttonbird Island if so inclined.

Hi Jim & Karen, Thank you for your nice review. I myself love to grab a fish and chips and head for a walk over to Muttonbird island (though it's best to eat the chips while they're still hot). Yes it's a real working harbour down here, and the fish that go from the boats into the back of the... More

Service at the Co-Op is friendly and helpful and the fish is MAGNIFICENTLY FRESH. If you have a special occasion coming up, the cooked lobster is absolutely delicious.

Hi Janne, Thank you for the nice review. Glad to hear that you enjoyed our locally caught lobster and our fresh seafood. I also love our Balmain bugs and prawns - tastiest in Australia? I am biased of course. Andrew More

Nice fish - fresh. Nice location to eat it. A nice place to go for lunch, right on the marina. You buy uncooked seafood as well to cook at home.

A good array of locally caught wet fish and a superb take away with outside covered seating. Was recommended to us a s the best fish and chips in town and we would agree.

We came to buy a selection of fish and seafood for a BBQ later that day. The choice was first class, and the service good. The fish was very fresh, and we enjoyed the snapper cutlets, the marlin steak and the prawns. Delicious!

We bought prawns and oysters here. Good quality and value was ok. They did not have a large selection of types of prawns but they were fresh and tasty.

Thanks for the nice review. Our selection of prawns is limited to what we catch, which means we can guarantee that they are fresh, local, wild, and tasty. More

Second visit to this iconic restaurant, but sadly my first impressions were reinforced. The fish whilst fresh and beautifully cooked is very over-priced to the point where it is no longer even remotely value for money no matter how well it is cooked. The system they have in place for taking orders is efficient, but expect to wait a long... More

I am sorry to hear about the 40 minute wait. We can be very popular at times, especially on the weekends, but this is too long for our customers to wait and is something that we're working on. Please accept our apologies for the wait. I disagree that we are overpriced though. You get a big feed of fish and... More

This was my first fish and chip experience since emigrating to Australia from the UK/Canada, and I can only hope the standard in the rest of Oz is better than this. Tough, watery fish (we tried the Dory and the Hoki) encased in limp, greasy batter; miraculously they managed to overcook the fish and yet still produce undercooked batter. The... More

I'm sharing your review with the Manager of the Takeaway shop, as I am concerned that we dropped the ball here. Usually the quality of our fish and chips is excellent.
