Co-Op Disappointment

Thought we would for sure be in for some quality fresh seafood for lunch at the co-op but ended up putting the majority in the bin. The fish was fresh but such a small serving and so much crumbing. Calamari and the salt'n' pepper squid were also mostly left over along with the chips. Fisherman's... read more

You can select the fish from the cool counter to have cooked for you or choose from the menu. The fish Is cooked while you wait and presented with chips in a box, you eat outside. John Dorey is a good choice but there is Snapper and other fish to select.

Thought we were doing the right thing buying fish & chips here. Wrong. Both fish & chips were terrible. Sign says don't feed birds. We noticed there were no birds around. They must know something.

Stopped here for a late lunch with wife due to her craving of wanting fish and chips on the beach. Ordered a Fishermans basket for two and received a large serve of fish and chips. Overall the meal was fine, the chips could do with a rework but we were full after trying to eat all the food we were... More

I was automatically suspicious of the food because of the smell of the building, it didn't small fishy but dirty. We ordered a 5 different take away meals for our family. My teen-aged son who has a broad palette and eats like a vacuum cleaner refused to eat his John Dory after the first bite, declaring it tasted off. My... More

The Fishermans co-op is where we shop for fish and buy our fish and chips when visiting coffs. The staff are really friendly and great to support the local fishermen. Alway fresh and yum, you can expect to pay about $25-$30 for two people fish & chips!

Great stop off while travelling. Located on the water. Great selection of fresh fish and seas creatures. Cooked fish and chips, both fresh and crispy... Reasonably priced..
