Amazing seafood

I love Peters it's always so fresh and so yummy. I wish they had more seating however and weren't soo pricey. But always great. One of the best on the Gold Coast

This is a great place for lunch but it also gets very busy but worth the wait. If you want a good table drive to the back and there are tables right on the water front.

Peters fish market sit right next door to the only 6 star Hotel on the Gold Coast, Versace and yet it is in a temporary mobile unit with stock held in old shipping containers. You could not get a more contrasting example. This is great for fish & chips right on the Broadwater. Be prepared to wait in line. Great... More

Peter's fish market, known as Peter's, is a small crowded, market immediately past Marina Mirage on the way to The Spit from Main Beach on the Gold Coast. It's famous for it's "straight out of the water" fish and buys directly from fishing boats that tie up close by. So it is totally authentic. Very popular in holiday seasons but... More

The fish and chips are the best on the coast, all the Gold Coast people know the shop and go there. The only fault is the Ibis birds, that come there to find scraps

Wasn't impressed by the layout, the prices or the cleanliness. I have heard that there are two Peters at Main Beach, one good one not so good. I guess I know which one we visited

It's an unassuming place along the Spit towards SeaWorld (just after the Palazzo Versace, which is after the Fisherman's Wharf set of eateries.) If you are wanting to eat there after a long day at Seaworld, you will need to drive down SeaWorld Drive past PV and the FW to a roundabout in order to do a U turn. We... More

Peters is great for a quick fix lunch on a weekend. Be prepared to wait for ages for your order and when you eventually get it, really not that great. Great location and is a GC icon. Our fish and chips took nearly an hour which is too long.
