Fresh seafood cooked for you. It was great. Bring cash because there is eft surcharge for small orders. Out door seating was good and under cover.

I live five hundred metres from Peter's Fish Market. My husband and I eat fish from this shop every week. Sometimes, we choose our fish, mostly snapper, and have the boys cook it on site with chips ans fresh salads. Other times, we take the fish and prepare it at home. The boys grill, batter or crumb the pieces you... More

Get to pick your own fish and get it cooked the way you like. Excellent quality. Tables outside could do with more regular clean but other than that great food and excellent ambience.

We accidentally came across Peters on our stay in the area. Our family loves seafood and after eating here we all agreed that the seafood selection and taste was second to none. We made every effort to eat there whenever we could and we were never disappointed. Awesome find.

If you want fresh seafood, well cooked and largely takeaway on the Gold Coast this is the place for you. The place is legendary for the fresh seafood (that you can pick off the regularly refilled display) that they will cook for you as you wish. They handle allergies (bit slower if cooked ordered). They are quick, unless it is... More

For a place that looks a little dodge it was fantastic the best food and service in surfers. It's nice to eat somewhere where the staff enjoy your patronage. Best place to eat by far
