These are probably the worst fish and chips we have ever had. They were incredibly expensive and we didn't even end up finishing them. Fish is NZ hoki so was probably cooked from frozen. Prawns and calamari were very disappointing. We would not recommend the food at all. We had high hopes after reading the reviews on here but have... More

Don't waste your time at the place on the beach. Walk down behind the Beach Hotel and find the best fish & chips I've ever had... Anywhere! Fresh and delicious, particularly if your partial to a grilled piece of fish with lots of marinade choices. Yum yum!

Fishmongers have been consistently good for years & we keep returning. My partner & I always order the half family box but on Sunday finally tried a few different dishes off the menu. The Salt/Pepper Calamari & Chips and Fish & Salad were just divine & cooked perfectly. The hand cut chips & Tartare sauce are the best. Really easy... More

Lovely food with beautiful presentation. Situated in a Lane way. It was lovely sitting outside. Children were playing ball on the streets. Staff from neighboring restaurants all friendly with one another. It had a lovely feel to it when we were there.

We had lunch at the Fishmongers on a very busy Friday. The place was quite busy, but there were tables available. I ordered the tempura battered fish (Hoki) and chips with a tartare sauce, and my partner had the tempura prawns with salad and chilli sauce. The meals arrived quickly, served in deep square bowls. Nice presentation, but a little... More

We found this little cafe delightful and the Canadian girl who served us was very nice. The food was delicious and the whole experience was easy and convenient. The cafe was recommended by our host at Byron Springs.

Our favourite place at Byron Bay. We had dinner here nearly every night. Everything in the menu was nice, even the jasmine rice was fragrant and fluffy, but our favourite menu item is BBQ octopus. It was so tender and full of flavour. Our kids just loved it.

Ordered the half family box stipulating a mix between both battered and grilled fish. Thrilled by the bucket of food that arrived - beautiful chips, the best I've eaten in oz. Price was a steal for the amount of food and quality!
