Relaxed Aussie style dining, wear beach clothes if you are straight from the nearby bay. Choose your own fish from a good selection of marinated, fresh, local catch. They sell by weight, then cook it and bring it to your table. BYOB keeps the cost down. Super sea food experience.

I had fish of my choice grilled which I really enjoyed however my husband had the fish and chips which was overcooked and the potato scallops were deep fried to within an inch of their lives. The chips however were great. Salads were fresh and looked appetising. Happy to have eaten here once but not sure if I would try... More

A top lunch! Wooden tables and benches with fast and friendly service. I chose a fresh fillet which was grilled to my liking ( a little rare) and on my second visit I had the fish and chips.

We went with my 5 yo son and his friend who had fish and chips. I had the marinated barramundi. My wife had roast corn on cob and salad. All the food was okay to good. Nothing earth-shatteringly terrific but not bad by any means. Service quick, which was good (midweek daytime parking is all 30 min and we were... More

As my title suggests, this place is not cheap at all unless you ordered fish and chips. It is very expensive for grilled fish, and medium rare Tuna we ordered is far more than rare, very well cooked.

Ate here a couple of times while at Coogee Beach. Each time what was on offer was slightly different. The food is shown in trays in a transparent counter. There is such a wide choice available that we were all able to find something we liked. Even the 8 year old we had with us was happy. The fish was... More

Who would have thought that there would be a great restaurant in the heart of Coogee, but a Fish Called Googee is just that. Reasonably priced dishes, friendly service, and a fun atmosphere created the perfect dining experience after my day at the beach. I particularly enjoyed the Bok Choy salad and the Thai Fish Burger. It's a BYOB establishment... More

Well, always good quality but then they do make you pay for it. neverthless the food is superb, maybe little more than a fish and chip shop but what fish and chips! Fresh, tasty, and well prepared, not greasy at all. Staff were friendly and knew their product so they were able to make informed useful recommendations. Prices are high... More
