Great service & yummy food

We saw the buy 1 get 1 free voucher in the dining out booklet and thought we'd give it a go. We were a little concerned that the menu options were limited when using the voucher. We both decided on the salt & pepper calamari and loved it and even better that we got one free! Service was quick &... read more

Was expecting a little different. Meals were fast out and good the garlic bread was great but my main wasn't. The barramundi tasted very watery and wasn't exactly grilled which is what I asked for however my partner got battered and was better. The service was ok however the blonde girl had her friends walk in and we're talking loudly... More

Friendly and prompt service, dated decor (decidedly naff), ordinary food. Don't go here looking for something special.

On Wednesday we stopped to have a bite and went for a second trip to fisherman's cove. Once again we were greeted with friendly staff who were very helpful. My business partner who does not eat seafood, enjoyed one of their specials the Aranchini's for entree and Lasagne for main which we were told both made in house by the... More

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
