We had the 1/2 family pack

We had the grilled and tempura fish which were both nice we are a family with 2 young kids so this was more then enough for us. Although not the best fish and chips I've had the service was good and they put sweet potato curls on the top which I love.

We all had lunch there and thought that it was okay. The servings were adequate and the price quite reasonable. The place was clean although we were the only ones there around 5 in the evening. Average fish and chips. Filled a hole but did little else. Reasonable for what we paid. Probably worth a visit

Somewhat overpriced compared to other fish & chip places. This place has a gourmet feel to it. Fish and squid were cooked well. Not such a fan of the homestyle wedge chips

We, a party of 4, had the 1/2 family box and a calamari salad. The price is pretty high and they call it gourmet fish and chips. If it's gourmet, how can u serve the sauces in take away plastic cups aside with the food? The fish wasn't bad, but the thickly hand cut chips weren't that good. I can't... More

Pretty expensive price for hoki fillet and chips, nothing special here... Wedges is soggy. You would expect better fish for the price you pay but again it is in the tourist place...

Only went to get takeaway and sit on the grassy area of main beach (as most people do I'm sure). The guy at the counter was very helpful as we were confused about what to order at first. Whilst waiting the food on the other peoples table all looked amazing. I loved the decorative sides both for eat in and... More

If this is the BEST fish n chips in Byron Bay, the rest must be crap, because this was discussing. Had to wait for the chef to come back from the toilet! $44 and we chucked it in the bin. THE SERVICE WAS GOID THOUGH.

Fantastic menu with loads of healthy salad options, good seafood variety. Super friendly service and BYO drinks help make for a great value outing. Great takeaway options and big serving sizes. Cool little place super close to the beach and the pub bottle shop.

Nice, usually busy fish bistro. It's a small place, where you can get very good fish: grilled, tempura style or crumbed. Very delicious - always worth a visit.
