“Such a great eat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

We visited for lunch and had one of their specials from the board. We decided to upgrade a piece of fish to a tuna steak, best. idea. ever. The fish was fresh and tasty, and cooked perfectly. It was accompanied with calamari, marinated octopus, and prawn cutlets, all freshly made, and again perfectly cooked.
The quality of seafood dishes coming out of this place you would only expect at white linen restaurants. This place really needs to be visited.

“Tasty, relatively inexpensive, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

I had the grilled hoki which was pretty tender and had a nice flavour and wasn't fatty or oily, and I also had 6 calamari rings which were soft to bite into and crunchy outside, which is sadly quite rare these days. I only had to wait about 5 or 10 minutes for my meal to be ready. For the price it was great. Some tartare sauce would've been handy but I didn't know this didn't come with the meal, so make sure you ask for some before you leave.
Only reason I couldn't give it a perfect review as my chips were a bit overcooked and some were brown. The chicken salt helped (there's always room for chicken salt!) but if I'd known I would've asked for some sauce to dunk them into.

“Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

This is a relatively new venue but both their fresh seafood, especially whole fresh flathead, which they fillet while you wait, and their cooked seafood is delicious. Very busy on weekends so expect a wait as everything is cooked fresh.

“The best grilled fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Worth a try, but can get very busy! Good fish selection, always fresh prawns to be had.
Value and quality for the price!

“Just another Fish and Chip Shop!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

On our first visit to The Entrance a month earlier, we gave this take-away a 'very good rating'. Alas, on our return visit, a disappointing experience - very ordinary! Might try one of the other seafood take aways on any further visit.
