We have been going to Fisherman's Cove for take out as long as we've been going up to Coolangatta, which is more than a decade. This time, however, we were a little disappointed. The chips were a little soggy, calamari are the regular rings rather than the smaller, sweeter squid we remember. The pizzas, however, lived up to memory.

My partner, myself and our 2 children dined here for the first time while staying in Coolangatta on holidays. The menu sounded lovely but when the food came out it was anything but. For entree I had the oysters kilpatrick which were quite nice and my partner had the seafood chowder. The seafood used in the chowder was like the... More

Traveled from the North Coast and stayed at Twin Towns, whilst we were visiting we were recommended Fishermans Cove. The Pizza Parmesan Bread was fresh and tasty. After a couple of glasses of wine we ordered crumbed calamari as the waiter advised that is was freely made, and not packet brought. I was glad to say that his recommendation was... More

We have lived here for over 30 years and Fishermans Cove was one of our favourite restaurants. Unfortunately, since Steve, Nick & Larry Carlos sold, the meals are very average. I ordered take away last week as I haven't been here in a while, the fish was so dry I threw it away, and you didn't even receive a piece... More

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in coolangatta with many fond memories. I had not been in a while and I am so dissapointed a new menu cut out near every vegetarian option leaving ONLY one main. The service was shoddy and the blonde girl very uninterested in being at work. We were served obviously burned garlic... More

Unfortunately I was here on the night you dined with us and I was told that the problem had been fixed and the customer was happy and that i needed to... More

Ordering off the $20 special board I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy the most scrumptious seafood chowder, followed by grilled snapper, chips & a crisp side salad. Super friendly service. Clean with a nice atmosphere.

Tonight we drove all the way down to this restaurant because it looked great in their brochures. Words cannot describe how tasteless and tacky all the food we ordered was. Best part was the garlic bread. As for the rest it was horrible. I have never eaten worse food (including my own cooking on a bad day). Maybe we are... More

Dinner for two, including two glasses of wine cost us $32. We took the $11 meal special, choosing corn and asparagus soup (tasted like it was made from fresh ingredients) and Hoiki fish for the main. Fish was delicious. Don't think you can go wrong with anything they serve up! Highly recommend.

This by far is the worst dining experience we have experienced anywhere in the world. Whilst the decor is much similar to the flinstones we initially thought perhaps as the restaurant had a reasonable number of patrons this un inviting restaurant may surprise, that it did do but unfortunately not a surprise or experience I want to remember. The one... More

We've been here many times and we've enjoyed the food and the friendly staff each and every time. Not expensive but still great food, and not restricted to seafood for those who don't like seafood. highly recommend
