Great Fish and Chips

Was reccommended by friends to try these guys out. Said that they were the best fish and chips in town and they were right! The locals know it too by the amount of people coming to pick up orders while we were waiting. Try their vege rolls Yumm. Would be great place in summer.

Great service and superb fish and chips. We go there at least once a month. Tonight I had crumbed delight - fish, prawns and calamari. The fish was flake. What a treat. I had Yummy chips and salad to go with it. My friends had fish ( king ) and chips. They loved it too.

We visit here every time we are in Bermi. (That is often!)The Fish and Chips are terrific at the front and very popular. But when you sit down in the Cafe/Restaurant we always have delicious, simple fresh seafood...The daily specials are a real treat. Lovely, friendly, easy going service! Breakfast, lunch and dinner all good. Watching the antics of the... More

What more could you ask for but to sit in the sun overlooking the water and eating fresh seafood straight from the trawlers. Not only seafood but delicious chips, burgers whatever its all beautiful

As a local I eat at Saltwater almost on a weekly basis, mainly for takeaway but the occasional meal in their café also. The fish is delicious and fresh, their calamari is the best on the entire south coast and is "not to be missed" Chips (almost) always cooked to perfection. Service is outstanding with the same great staff of... More

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.
