Chanced upon this small eatery along Byron Bay. Opted for take away, waiting time was about 15 minutes. Had it by the beach. Super fresh and hot. Portion was good, enough to be shared it with my boyfriend, A+ for presentation!

perfect place for a seafood platter after enjoying the sunshine by the beach. Drinks/cocktails are very nice as well. Loved it.

I go in here a lot. Its always friendly & the menu is always fresh. I usually get the marinated, baby octopus but lately I've broadened my selection. Try the snapper, get it to take away and go sit by the beach and chow down while watching the surfers. Lots of family menu deals as well.

We ate here during our last visit to Byron in (2012) and unfortunately it's not the same food we remember. The presentation is (as always) fantastic, but the fish - both the Barra and Snapper - over done :( lunch time and not crowded...expected better than this.

It was fast and friendly and freshly cooked. The salmon was cooked to my liking and I chose the salad and sweet corn. Tasty! Yes it isn't cheap but Byron is a tourist mecca and this place is worth it if you are looking for lovely fish.

This is a regular choice due the great quality fresh fish. The basic fish is not fresh but the blackboard menu shows four types of fresh fish served with an array of sides. My favourite is the barramundi or snapper with tempura vegetables. These meals are $22 - $24 each. There's no corkage charge for BYO. We often get take... More

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
