Best fresh fish

My wife and I shared fresh jewfish (mulloway) and crunchy chips. Big enough for 2 for lunch at $20 and beautifully cooked white flaky fish. Exactly like fish and chips should be.

For me the most disappointing thing about this place and Forster in general is the lack of fresh local seafood. When you look at the window display, check out where it comes from

Hi Robmary765 Thanks for your latest review on Beach St Seafoods. At Beach St. we strive for quality and freshness so therefor at times we run out of local fresh fish. We would rather run out and offer a high quality replacement to ensure that our product is always at its freshest. At present and over the past few weeks... More

$72 for very basic fish and chips for three people. Could have gone to any number of restaurant and eaten for nearly the same price and far better quality. Badly cooked and dim sims that are the worst in the world. I don't know how they stay open. Do not go there better seafood at Lobby's across the road

Went here with my girlfriend for what we assumed was a quick bite but instead we had a great time sampling all the food we got and really enjoyed it! And for those saying limited drinks, what do you expect, a cafe/bar? Relax yourself.

Amazing food, lovely staff! Best fish and chips ever. We strolled down, were served quickly, despite how busy it was. Perfect fish and chips.

Whether or not it's the busy holiday times in Forster, this is the best spot for seafood. When local fish are available, eg, red spot whiting, it's even better. Friendly young staff are on deck in busy periods. Well trained & supervised, they ensure queues are quickly attended to. I think the chips were better a coupe of years ago... More

I decided to go grilled instead of deep fried, unfortunately the salmon was overdone, the chips were nice. The cost was a bit steep $20 for the salmon and chips takeaway. Will visit again and order something else.

My wife and I have been here before and have enjoyed the food. It is a very nice spot to overlook the comings and goings of Wharf Street, especially in good weather. The food is good and it a very presentable business with friendly and courteous service.
