This restaurant was so understaffed. The food was not good. The service was the worst I've ever had. Our 2 grand seafood platters were put on our table with no plates, water bowl or bowl for the shells. The platter itself was not worth the money and the service left me with an even worse taste. I will never go... More

Upon many recommendations from a friend who holidays in Coolangatta every 2 months, I visited this restaurant last weekend and my overall rating in a word is "sorely disappointed! ". I ordered a $20 lunch deal with entree & main, choosing Calamari & battered Snapper. The positive side is the entrée of Calamari melted in my mouth & I gave... More

Rather dated appearance but the 2 course menu for $20 was outstanding value. Clam Chowder magnificent and Spaghetti Marinara and Bara dish excellent, as was the service. Overall the best meal during our weeks stay (see our other reviews).

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

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.
