We asked the hotel for a recommendation where to eat seafood - this was it and it was perfect! We’d been in Aus to run the UTA, had a chilled night in Coogee after the event and just wanted good fresh seafood and no fuss....More

Found ‘a Fish Called Coogee’ while walking around Coogee. It is a small place with a few benches and stools, but I think their main business is takeaway. They serve everyday fish and chips at an awesome price but they all so have a full...More

If you like a kind of ‚streetfood‘ with fresh fish in different variations: Go there! Vine and beer etc. are BYO (good bottleshop is 15 m next to it). And: the prices are unbeatable - and the quality is high. And you are in the...More

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
