Fresh fish, doesn't get any better

The wife and I felt peckish so we picked out what fish we wanted (cod, flathead and leatherjacket) and they gave us many options of how we wanted it cooked, I opted for batter and it was absolutely beautiful.... we will be back- thanks team

I was very disappointed when I visited Coffs Harbour fish co-op . There was only imported fish in the take-away section.

Fresh fish, cooked to order and great choice - can eat in (but really tables still outside, roof and open sides) or take-away. Great fishmongers too - so choose some fish and take home

Great place to have fish and chips overlooking the Marina. Everything is very fresh - excellent prawns, fish, etc., if you want to take it home to cook. A holiday in Coffs is not complete without fish and chips from the Co-op and a walk along the breakwater to Mutton Bird Island.

I love this place as you can get a really great feed of your favourite fish or prawns or whatever and sit out overlooking the Coffs Harbour International Marina. Great if you are going for a walk to MuttonBird Island or just along the north wall. Make sure you pop in and have a feed or take some home to... More

This is one of the best coops i have ever shopped at. The fish was so fresh. We at prawns from the paper while watching the full moon rise over the ocean. We felt very spoilt by natures gifts. Thanks Coffs

Being a sea changer and excited at the fact that there is a local fish market I have to say its pretty limited, although fresh, I think the good stuff and selection goes to Sydney. The cooked takeaway is quite good although not cheap (also if you are buying sashimi, be aware that you have to slice it yourself)

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 co-ops are usually a sure... 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.
