We had scallops, fish, chips, calamari and most was good and fresh. Some, however upon first bite, tasted less than fresh. We saw the locals driving up and ever so politely peering into the windows for the food stock. If it wasn’t to their discerning...More

The food was tasty but I thought a bit pricey. Location was good almost on the wharf & you could see the Pelicans.

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed the view and your meal. Fish and chips are $16 for two people, we aim to offer a good meal at a reasonable price - I'm not sure what you ordered.

The fish and chips here are excellent and the setting can't be beat. They even have malt vinegar! The Aussie lady at the till is a real ray of sunshine - not!

I'm really pleased you enjoyed your cray and snapper. The cray season has just started and we have some beautiful seafood on offer right now. You are right we do cook fresh flake straight out of the Bass Strait. The more people like you are...More

All the food is frozen, not a fresh thing at all. Walked out and never going back. It’s right on the marina so you could get the best seafood possible .More

Hi. I'm really sorry you did not see fresh fish on our counter, it would be very rare to find no fresh catch at all. Recently we have had a lot of flake and scallops, and on Saturday we were filleting monkfish, boarfish, queen snapper,...More

Whenever I stay in Apollo Bay, I ensure I get a pack of fresh oysters in the morning from the Fisherman's Coop. The oysters are always delicious and fresh, and it's lovely to eat them on the seats near the building.

Thank you! Nothing like eating seafood beside the sea. We have scallops fresh in at the moment if you are interested.

As well as being able to order normal fish and chips menu items when we were there they had a daily special, which was one of monkfish or salmon with salad and chips for $14. Very tasty.

The flake was cooked well, I didn't mind the chips, the dressing in the salad tasted like it was store bought, and the vegetables and fruits in the salad were kind of sad. They forgot the tartare sauce. Nice view though. The pricing is comical....More

Description
Take-away fish and chips and salad available all day every day, cooked lobster to order. Outdoor seating available with a glorious view while you enjoy your fish and chips or grilled fish and salad. The Apollo Bay Fishermen's Coop is the home of Southern Rock Lobster and Bass Strait flake. It is situated on the harbour - the only place on the Great Ocean Road still bringing in fish caught fresh from the sea. We offer fresh local fish and seafood for sale as well as a broader range of fish from the market. We sell our world famous rock lobster within Australia and overseas as well as supplying top-end restaurants. We also provide fuel and bait for local fishermen. Five minutes' walk from the main street by road or along the beach, it is a peaceful spot to enjoy fantastic local fish and a view of the bay and the boats in the harbour.
