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.

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.

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
