“Cheap Fish and Chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

We just finished the hop on hop off bus tour and had 30 minutes before our Mt. Wellington shuttle bus departed. 3 minute walk toward the harbor there are a few fish and chips shops on the water, literally as they are on some sort of converted boat or pontoon. We chose Mako as it was the only one that has indoor seating as it was cold and windy. If the weather was nicer we would have probably chosen another shop.

The prices were ok, but you get what you pay for. The fish and chips include two small pieces of fish that were good, but not great. My wife had the calamari rings which were better, would order that next time.

“Fresh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Tasty and fresh fish and chips. Cheap and kitchen very clean. Cook was absolutely fastidious with his hygiene. We watched him wash hands and apply gloves for every order.

“Sea Food Platter”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

We shared the Sea Food Platter and thought it was both good food and good value. We also sat with a great view over Constitution Dock. Service was slow: one guy doing everything, which does not make sense at lunch time.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Sunday 24th November
Just had lunch @ Mako's down on Hobart harbour - Mako's looks to be a converted fishing trawler with fresh fish for sale on lower deck and a small seated sea food café on the upper deck - no pretentions what so ever, it just is what it is
Mako's is down at the harbour located between Mures and the Drunken Admiral, both of which we have eaten at over the last few days ( and both leaving us less than happy with service ) it was a delight to come across Mako's
My wife had fish & chips, I chose the mixed fish basket which consisted of pieces of fresh fish, prawns, calamari and chips, fresh fish cooked to perfection - would just mention they have much more on their menu oysters, various fish, mussels etc ... we will be back to try other options - it's just simple fare with quick service and a smile - couldn't believe just how good it was and made a point of letting them know how delighted we were with everything
The whole lot came to less than $30 for both of us - brilliant - strongly advise you give it a try

Had take away from the Mako fish punt last week. Very enjoyable meal. Will try it again on our next visit to Hobart.
