Dining options: Lunch, Dinner, Reservations
Description: Located on the Sunshine Coast in the lovely shopping village at Peregian Beach, Wahoo Seafood Restaurant and Takeaway has been providing great food to the area for nearly 13 years. You can dine in at our restaurant overlooking the square or under the majestic pandanus tree, and select from the many lovely lunch or dinner options. The a la carte menu changes with the seasons but we like to keep many of the customer favourites ... and we serve more than seafood. Our takeaway is constantly busy serving the popular: a variety of fish, calamari and chips. Our customers absolutely love the Barramundi spring rolls and the tasty homemade fish cakes. Many people purchase their food and have a picnic in the lovely Peregian Square. BYO or select from our wine list.

As a Brit, Im always highly critical of aussie fish n chips, but this place is THE best Ive ever had over here. Tasty, freshly made, good quantity and friendly service. Cant recommend it highly enough, except to say we eat there almost every Friday!!
If youre in the area, do try it... yum

Have been here many times in the past and enjoyed it each time.
I love the Peregian village and this has a nice little spot in the heart here. The menu has a nice variety of options but the fish this time didn't seem as fresh as previous times. I thought it might have just been me being overly fussy but I then read some of the recent reviews and perhaps it has changed in the 9 months since my last time.
Never thought it was too expensive - I always liked it here with the emphasis on fresh

Dear Ron, thank you for making the time to write a review. We are totally new to the social commentary aspect of reviewing our restaurant. We are disappointed to hear of your unsatifactory visit to Wahoo. We hope you'll give us another try sometime as we are really trying hard to impress people with our food. Please ask to speak to our manager John next time as he is very open to feedback and really wants to improve the dining experience for all customers. He is approachable and very passionate about his takeaway and seafood restaurant standards. Like many small business owners employing locals on the Sunshine Coast, it is important for us to keep our customers happy so they come back and/or tell others and ultimately keep our little business running. Hospitality is hard work but we love it.

We were extremely disappointed with our dining experience in this over-rated fish & chip shop. Our waitress was very polite and friendly but our meals were very disappointing. We ordered the barrimundi, chips & salad and the prawn and scallop linguini. Well the fish was no bigger than the palm of your hand and there were ONLY 6 chips on the plate so you can imagine how hungry I still was after eating this meal. This small portion of a meal (if you can call it that) cost me $27! The prawn and scallop linguini came with only 4 small prawns and instead of full scallops they had sliced them and we got 4 slices in this meal ... we actually thought they were slices of mushrooms! Although the flavours were pleasant enough in the pasta it was over-priced for the $26 we paid. I would not waste your time and money eating here. Try the local fish and chip shop where the fish is 6 times the size and a quarter of the price.

We recently dined at Wahoo on a Friday night. No booking was required. They run specials on another night of the week including wine. We ordered various meals and were delighted by the service and the food. Would definitely go back.

What a change 12 mths can make. Wahoo for us has gone from "great" to "poor"! Dry & tasteless (read...frozen/thawed) red emporer. Thick batter/breadcrumbs, greasy chips & a pathetic greek salad that cost $10 and wasn't enough for 1. Close to $70 for 4 people takeaway & we threw 1/2 of it out. Actually speaking of close to...we were very close to taking it back. Wahoo you should ashamed of yourselves!

If you're thinking about Wahoo for decent fish & chips for the family .....based on what was served up last night......we'd respectfully suggest you look elsewhere! Please bring back Staceys at Noosaville.
