I love going to this place every time on the Gold Coast. Beautiful fresh tasty fish with lots of choices and you can buy prawns, Morton bay Bugs, crab and even lobster- all hand picked by u and then cooked for you- grilled, crumbed or bartered or cook yourself at home. They think of everything- right down to sauces, salads... More

The food here was lovely. You can buy fresh fish or have it cooked and we at outside. Service was friendly, a little on the slow side but was worth the wait!

Not too bad. But remember to ask for your fish to be well cooked unless you like it rubbery and mushy. Can be very busy at times.

This "restaurant" has been on the Gold Coast for at least 4 decades. Nothing has changed. Surely they could update the building. It's very rundown and should be condemned.

The only bad thing about this place is how much everyone loves it - you can queue for a while but the food is amazing - such fresh fish and you can select your own

This spot is a regular for us when we hit the Gold Coast and we have never been disappointed, whether we are grabbing lunch or taking fresh Seafood home, it is always a standout! The displays are always clean and have a variety of fish to choose from, I love that you grab the fish you want and they cook... More

This is the best fresh fish market. Yesterday we enjoyed fish and chips here. The number of people lined up to buy was an indication how good this place is. We also bought fresh fish and scallops for dinner. Delicious !

We went here from reviews we had read. The waiting line to order was to the door and after we got to order it took approx 45 mins until we got our food, however it was well worth the wait!! The fish was so fresh, cooked well and melted in the mouth and the chips were also great. So if... More
