“Very nice food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

We ate here on both nights we spent in Forster. The food was very fresh and the service friendly and helpful. We bought wine fromt he bottleshop across the road and an ice bucket and glasses were provided by the fish shop. Would definitely go again if we were Forster.

Great chips and grilled fish!! Very clean and friendly service
Really fast and pretty good prices. I particularly loved the chips, crunchy but not oily. Yum I am going back!!!

The line was out the door so I was a little worried, I was amazed how quickly the meals were coming out.

So delicious and great service. Loved it. Really clean and really friendly!

“Rating from a Fresh Seafood Junkie”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Went to Beach Street Seafood twice during our visit on the basis of reviews on TA and also past experience elsewhere in Forster (pretty ordinary).

Ordered the fresh Flathead Tails and the Barramundi.

After eating at a lot of fresh seafood outlets I would rank Beach Street as average, at very best. I won't be going back as at those prices and based on the quality I don't believe it is worth it.

The fish really lacks great taste - certainly not worth the $45 per kilo for the flathead tails and the circa $40 for the Barra.

Chips are average - again lacking any great taste.

Service / seating / ordering processes and time taken are all good, slightly above average.

Whilst Beach Street may be the best seafood takeaway in Forster it's more due (in my opinion) to the lack of great competition Vs being sensational themselves.

I'm not advising people not to go, but rather resetting the expectation of any fresh seafood junkies like me out there.

We are off to the new Seafood restaurant "slipway on wallis" tonight so will post a review of it. (Have heard great things about this new restaurant and have spoken to the owner so looking forward to it!).

“Fish and Chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

We stopped on our way to Port Macquarie to have fish and chips. It was good. The stuff was kindly and asked at the end of the meal if we had a nice experience. The only draw back is that if you order some fried prawns, you just get one prawn. :)
