This unassuming looking fish and chip shop serves up the freshest fish with a side helping of not very good chips. They proudly display several accolades and awards won over the last few years so why not go a little further and give the guests metal cutlery to eat with. There is also a fresh fish counter offering some very... More

Great fish and chips. Given the shop is right next to the petrol station get take away and head down to the waterfront. A really nice way to spend an afternoon.

we must have gone in the wrong season. We had heard great reviews but there was hardly any fresh fish and seemed quite pricey.

Thankyou for taking the time to review us , our fresh fish supply is governed by weather and the fisherman, as of late we have had a lot of windy days where the fisherman cannot get out to fish, this past couple of days we have had superb weather and the display cabinets are full unfortunately we are governed by...

...but didn't quite live up to the amazing reviews I'd read out there. Pretty pricey and weird to see so much of the 'fresh fish' sourced from overseas. No complaints about what we had though.

Thankyou for your recent review, most of our seafood is locally caught and labelled local produce, the only fish we have that is imported is Atlantic Salmon from Tasmania, Australian caught Tuna which is processed in Indonesia, due to processing costs and legally we must label it from the country it is processed in,and the Tuna comes in Frozen ....

Excellent choice of local produce. Excellent fresh fish to purchase and take home. Fish and chips were ok. Chips so so & batter a bit heavy.

Have visited here 5 times now, and every trip we have bought fish, chips and other accompanying foods. We have also bought King George Whiting from other Island venues and nothing has come close to being the moistest, well cooked fish and lovely chips that we get from this place. People serving are friendly, attentive and well mannered and whilst... More

Thankyou for your review and we always love to see return customers. On the seafood side of things the price of seafood has risen dramatically since the introduction of the marine parks there are less fish being caught therefor the fisherman's income has decreased which has put pressure on demand and ultimately that has forced prices to rise. hopefully governments...

Mom and Dad loved the fish and chips; kids thought the chicken sandwich was the best ever. Very generous lunch portions. So good, we went back the next day on the way back to the ferry. Highly recommended for simple good food and local flavor. We were directed here by a guide at Seal Bay (thank you!).

It is just kind of fish & chips shop with some seafood which they will fry to cook, nothing special but far too expensive. For example, I bought 1Kg pack of black mussel here with AUD12 (planned to have a lunch but changed my mind after I entered) & in an hour I bought 2Kg of the same mussel at... More

Thanyou for your feed back but I am a little confused, you have based your opinion on one single purchase, the Mussels you spoke of are S.A mussels, and as we are heavily reliant on transport we do our own and there are large costs involved, the seafood we get on the island does not have the transport component and...
