Cooked prawns

I've tried the cooked prawns that they are selling in this fish market. They were cooked nicely and tasted great. The shop is not that big, but has enough space for the seafood that they are selling. I wish that they had a hand basin though.

Staff are VERY rude. Rather than saying hello, you get an evil stare. Customers standing around not knowing what they should be doing and the staff just ignore the customers instead of assisting them. Place is really run down and dirty.

Went to Peter's fish market was looking forward for some great seafood. Service was rushed but friendly, the let down was in the food . Felt like I was eating seafood from a service station truck stop. Very sad.

We are seafood lovers. Everything there is fresh. Don't miss prawns and bugs. Not oily fish and chips. Perfect meal for everyone. Please spare at least an hour before your real meal time because the line up cue is over the front door.

On the way to our hotel in Broadbeach we stopped to get some fresh ( we thought ) seafood. Got oysters, sea scallops and peeled prawns. When I opened the container with the prawns a terrible smell escaped, took a bite of the prawn and had to spit it out immediately....it was so disgusting. Never going back there and wouldn't...

As a first time visitor to buy fish and chips I was disappointed to say the least. The place was crowded, people just standing around waiting. There is no instruction that you need to pick a fish from the bays before going to the counter. After reaching the front of a long queue we found we could only order marinated... More

Had high hopes, but the servings are really small! Was expecting a nice whole crumbed fish, but it was broken into bits when I opened it up. Fish bites were extremely tiny! Extremely disappointed and would not go back!

We visited here at lunchtime and were shocked to see a security guard on the door controlling the numbers inside. The place was packed. What a good sign we thought. We waited in a queue to order. They couldn't hear properly and got the order wrong so after I paid, they had to run another payment through. We asked for... More

Seen how busy it was so had to try but a huge let down. Waited an hour after ordering to receive our food. The fish was way too oily and the chips were average. Definitely not worth the wait. Plus what fish and chips shop doesnt do burger or provide salt shakers?. However, the crab enjoyed some leftovers.

The fish and chips here are very good but there is nothing fancy about the seating area outside. You choose your fish and it is then cooked for you. If you don't like bones in your fish make sure you ask for it to be properly deboned, otherwise you are likely to find bones in there. There are no salt... More
