What a little gem to find this excellent restaurant down the popular lane way. My salmon was so fresh, the hand cut chips were delicious and my favourite was the thinly sliced, deep fried sweet potato garnish (I could have eaten a whole bowl of that). The waitress was lovely and friendly and explained the menu to us. All the... More

We have frequented this restaurant for years and would travel down from the Gold Coast just to have the fish, chips and tempura veg but sadly the last few months have seen a steady decline in food quality and service. I kept hoping it was just a 'bad day' but now I'm convinced it's just going bad. We dined last... More

It's a shame you feel this way particularly as you can see from our other reviews we are certainly hitting the mark for almost everyone. We are completely committed to giving all our customers the best food and service experience as possible regardless of the time of the year. Did you provide any feedback to the staff on the night?...

Good god ! Frozen Hoki!! The cheapest fish on the market . Deep fried skin on and smelly . The calamari salad was ok . The frozen crumbed Calamari was not !! The server even had the audacity to charge a miserable dollar for tomato sauce . A $38 spend was very sad and disappointing. Please can someone in these... More

Hi Gambo256 A couple of area's need to be qualified... Yes the Hoki is bought in from NZ, it's light in flavour and texture making it perfect for kids and adults alike. The fish is actually one of the least "smelly fish" in the market and I can guarantee you it's fresh as we only ever prepare our food on... More

My friend had the tacos (which were on offer) and octopus and chips. Big portions (sadly couldn't finish mine, even after walking to the lighthouse and back). The octopus was so tender, cooked in a lovely marinade. The chips were thick, fluffy inside and crisp outside, just as they should be. The sweet potato crisps on top were also delicious.... More

Hey Helen Thanks for taking a moment to review our famous F&C approach. We pride ourselves on offering the "best" casual dining experience in busy Bay Lane. Your description of our food reads beautifully and we thank-you for your kind words. Our chips are a twice cooked home made chip and have had customers coming back for 17 years. And... More

We were recommended Fishmongers as the best fish and chips in Byron. Can't vouch for that as we didn't try any others but it was OK. What is different about this place is the unique menu, not your average fish and chippery. It has meals made up on a menu more like a restaurant rather than just choosing your own... More

Spresa V, Owner at Fishmongers Byron Bay, responded to this review

You are absolutely right, the unique menu is back dup by fresh daily preparation of everything from our home mage chips to our calamari and prawn options. There aren't many places that offer the FM approach to putting you meals together. the Sharing box for 2 can usually stretch out feeding 3 people so not bad value at all at... More

Pretty good food but very expensive and over rated in our opinion. The cost does not meet expectations

Thank Geoff S
Spresa V, Owner at Fishmongers Byron Bay, responded to this review

glad to hear you liked the food an yes it is al little more expensive than most F&C places and that is because we prepare everything from scratch daily and have some of the best local seafood you will find anywhere. The Barramundi and Snapper are extremely popular and pack a punch of flavour. Hope to see you again.. More
