Can anyone cook decent fish and chips in Bermagui? I haven't found any yet. Customer service = zero. No friendly greeting and no thanks for your patron. Staff smoking outside whilst we waited for our meal. Crumbed prawns that looked like they come from China, inedible soggy pale chips and soggy batter. I have literally had better $10 fish and...

Great fish and chips, freshly cooked, reasonable price, line up can be long during busy periods (can tell it's popular with locals and visitors) so great we went back twice during our holiday.

We bought the family pack for $36. This was great value as it had plenty to feed our family of 4. The fish tasted fresh and yummy, chips were nice and staff were friendly. Our kids loved the calamari rings and I particularly enjoyed the blue grenader (no idea how to spell it) fish in the pack. Beautiful setting overlooking... More

Great takeaway menu with great coffee. The burgers are nice and the chips/potato cakes were really nice. Not overly oily like other places can be

Had takeaway fish and chips from the cafe at lunch time, and we were drawn by the amount of people ordering. We were not let down as the take away fish and chips were great and the speed at which everyone's order was processed was terrific.

We have been regular patrons of Saltwater cafe for a few years now but it's been about a year since our last visit. If today's experience is anything to go by it will likely be our last. The food has always been fresh hot and tasty but today's offering was anything but. Luke warm, tired reheated batter, overcooked calamari, forgettable... More

Saltwater Cafe is right on Bermagui Harbour directly across the road from the Country Club. It's only tiny in the sit-down dining area but take-away is also available.We dined in on a Saturday night & the place was packed with locals.[We had tried to get in on the FRIDAY night, but they were booked out]. The decor is simple &... More
