Every time we are in Byron we go to Fishmonger's. It's down a side lane-way off the main street and worth finding. The venue is cheap and cheerful and the food is delicious. This time I had the grilled fish and it was amazing! The best fish I've had in a really, really long time. Perfectly cooked and nice seasoning.... More

By far the best fish and chips I've ever had. My friends were discouraged by the price as it is pricey and somewhat fancy for fish and chips but TOTALLY worth it! One of the best meals I had in byron, had a kids size because I don't eat big portions and it was totally enough, nice battered fish and... More

Best fish in Chips in Byron Bay. Best price not too fancy yet very good grilled fish and calamari with the best view of the beach. Probably my favourite part of my trip to Byron was fish and chips on the beach

The food is great, and the staff is really friendly, they make you feel like home, but with extraordinary food to eat! We ordered too much, but however it was so delicious, we ordered even more! If you go to byron, don't miss this oportunity to go have a lunch or dinner there! You won't regret it!

Have been coming here for more than 10 years but the quality and freshness of the food has definitely declined. Will no longer be my favourite lunch spot on byron bay trips.

This is a little place on a side street close to all the hub bub. Walk up to order and they bring it out. The food is a bit pricy for what you get, the meals were nice, tasty but not fab. A small little to go tub of tomato sauce cost 1.00 which is crazy. Other places, if not... More

This place used to feature fresh local seafood. Now it's just hoki and Tasmanian salmon. Way over priced for mediocre fish & chips.

Went here for dinner on our first evening in Byron, and was so impressed with the food we went back for a takeaway lunch the next day! Everything was fresh and delicious. Both the traditional battered fish and chips and the grilled calamari and tempura vegetables were fantastic. My mum and my husband were also really happy with their meals... More

My boyfriend and I visited here twice on our trip to Byron. It definitely isn't your average fish and chip restaurant and we loved it!! Our food tasted so fresh and everything was cooked to perfection. We can't wait to return!
