We love FOTE as the food is always excellent with lovely fresh fish. We have been assured they source responsibly from sustainable sources. Should say so on the menu! Service quick and friendly. Just a touch expensive for a small restaurant but that doesn't stop us going.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and dining with us. In regards to pricing we do not apologise for saucing the most local and freshest seafood available, unfortunately it is expensive. Rest assured you will be consuming some of the tastiest seafood money can buy which has been cooked with love.

Fish on the Edge do great fish and chips and I go there often. Whilst I haven't had it, their seafood platter for 2 is massive and you certainly wouldn't go away hungry!

Fish on the Edge is close to our work location and we semi regularly go there for breakfast on Saturday or Sunday. My wife says the eggs benedict are sensational.
We have also had lunch there on several occasions and the seafood is always good and the chips crunchy ;just as I like them. Everything is done efficiently and with a smile.

We keep returning to Fish on the Edge, the food is always consistent and the service from Kylie and staff is always friendly and efficient.
My favorite is the Seafood Chowder and is a meal on it's own complete with large bread roll and butter. My husband loves the fish and chips which always look yummy and not greasy.
If you're driving by definitely give them a try.

My husband and I shared a tasting platter. When it appeared we thought oh no we will never eat all of this but finish it we did. There was a good selection of fish, calamari, scallops etc... although everything seemed to be deep fried.
The calamari and scallops were fine, the chips were good and the salad a welcome touch with the fried (but not oily) food. The fish was terrible. It was dry and tasteless. Maybe we should have ordered just the flathead with chips and salad. Great wine by the glass which is much appreciated.
