This is the best fresh fish market. Yesterday we enjoyed fish and chips here. The number of people lined up to buy was an indication how good this place is. We also bought fresh fish and scallops for dinner. Delicious !

We went here from reviews we had read. The waiting line to order was to the door and after we got to order it took approx 45 mins until we got our food, however it was well worth the wait!! The fish was so fresh, cooked well and melted in the mouth and the chips were also great. So if... More

The meal is really good as you have a sense of freshness in the food you eat there especially fish. All fishes are picked and cooked upon your request. The only set back to the place is that there are too many sea gulls that keep a note on every bite you take. There are signs put up by the... More

Go here quite often to pick up some fresh prawns and sit soaking up the view. If you are after hot food there is a considerable wait while its being cooked but they have a lot of staff which keeps things motoring on quickly. Great for a cruisy day, show tourists how to peel a prawn or even to but... More

My husband and I came here twice during our visit to the Gold Coast. We were staying close by at the Sheraton so it was a quick walk. Being from the US, we were unfamiliar with both of the fish of the day choices so I asked the cashier which she recommended. She spoke highly of the Hoki so we... More

The long queue waiting was an indication on just how good the food is. Nothing fancy as far as the available out door seating but fantastic fish and chips. Fish was very fresh also.

A good dining experience with fresh fish and outdoor setting, but its very busy so be patient as the waiting time might be long. I noticed many types of seafood and fish available and the staff are polite and helpful

I have been here previously and had a fabulous meal of fish and chips - so much so, that I have recommended the venue on numerous occasions to friends and visitors to the Gold Coast. However my husband and I went there on Saturday evening 6 August and picked up the standard fish and chips. The fish was practically inedible... More
