We asked a few locals where to get fish and chips.. There where a few places mention but this on stood out because everyone said they have the best variety. And they where all wright! Awesome selection, We had Snapper, Cod and Dori grilled not fried. Instead of chips we had fresh salads, mixed green, coleslaw and a Cesar.. Staff... More

We'd planned to find a nice Fish n Chip shop and take away to our unit balcony. We walked down James St and people were lined up, so we did too. They have a nice little seating area, but we were still determined to eat at the unit. I ordered fish n chips and 2 chiko rolls (first chiko rolls... More

This fishmonger does the best tasting take away fish and chips I have tasted in Queensland. It is a very busy take away but the 20 min wait is worth it. Wrap it up and have it sitting on the beach.

Super tasty fish and chips worth the drive from Coolangatta. Wifey had the Dory crumbed and it was amazing I had the snapper which was tasty as well but I think hers was better.

I really wanted to like this place after the mostly good reviews and craving some great fish n chips one day. Unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations. Soggy under cooked flake (from South Africa!!), chewy Snapper, over cooked chips and potato cake all made our lunch experience truly forgettable! Not worth the wait or the hype. Far better options...

I had heard good things about this place (not so much from tripadvisor) but from other blogs and whenever we walked past it was always super busy so thought that must of been a good sign. We ordered just the usual, a few pieces of flake, calamari rings and chips. The fish flake didn't taste fresh at all and the... More

A very popular fish and chip shop, walking distance to the waterfront. Our food was cooked as ordered and was tasty and fresh. Staff were friendly enough and some were a bit cute too.. :P It got really busy at dinnertime and there was quite a queue, I was lucky to get in just before this chaos! I didn't see... More

Went there today. Paid $49 per kg for 3 x fillets of red emperor. Requested one fillet to be recooked as it was chewy, tasted foul and was not fresh. The salad was old (caesar salad with soggy croutons and wilted lettuce) the chips were gross, even the aioli was awful. How you can bugger up aioli is beyond me...... More

Don't be fooled by thinking this place is great just because of the wait time and just because it's in Burleigh doesn't guarantee you're getting spanking fresh fish. The last couple of times we've eaten here, we have made it home to realise something is missing and when you place an order for $3 worth of chips, you would expect... More

My wife had grilled Sea Perch and I had battered Cod. We added chips and a pumpkin and Rocket Salad. The Sea Perch was good but a little smallish in size. The Cod was a good size but disappointing quality and seemed old to me. The chips were OK however Hot Lip Cod on the highway 300 meters away has... More
