“Best Fish and Chips Ever”

The Octopus Fish Shop
Ranked #2 of 4 Coffee & Tea in Burnie
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This place does the best fish and chips I've had anywhere in a long time. My piece of fish was HUGE and there was a generous serving of perfectly cooked chips. I also ordered a couple of potato scallops which was chunky and also perfectly cooked. Make sure you try their own home-made tartare sauce too.

Though the surroundings are not nearly as salubrious as Fish Frenzy down the road, if you are looking for good, honest, fresh fish and chips with no frills, this is the place to go. Select your fish from the display (with advice given if you need it), and cooked perfectly. Kids got their fish and chips served in a white plastic clam shell which they thought was pretty special! Also an excellent park on the water stones throw away.

The Locals with all the connections to the local seafood industry so you can be assured they have access to all the best of what is fresh. Recommend the Salmon or a prawn pack crumbed battered or half N half.

We always stop at the Octopus for fish and chips when in the area. The fish and chips are great and huge protions. There is also a very good fresh fish counter which sells freshly boiled crays.
