We ordered 2 meals = flathead with chips and flathead with salad and a side of calamari rings and chips. The everything was fresh and gourmet and the dressings were scrumptious. Beautifully presented in our take away boxes (we ate on the lawn overlooking the beach - watch for the hungry seagulls!!!!). Definitely not the usual greasy fish & chips, but then this is Sydney and the price reflects that too. Our meal costed $48 (no drinks).

We visited Manly for a day, and wanted to eat outside. We are traveling on a budget, which in Australia is not easy. The Fishmongers fit the bill. For a reasonable Sydney price, we got more fish than we could eat in a family pack( 3 adults one child). The fish was crisp and hot with a tasty coating, the calamari fresh tasting, and of course we got heaps of fries(chips). Lemon, catsup, and extra tartar sauce cheerfully supplied, no extra charge. We carried our package to one of the nearby beach picnic tables, kept an eye out for marauding seagulls, and enjoyed our lunch.

Being British we are experts on fish and chips and this restaurant serves up the best we have ever had. We actually visit Manly just to experience the delights of the superb fresh fish and chips which might more correctly be described as wedges with their coating of skin. Beautifully presented, piping hot and so crisp, it will be impossible to match this meal back home in the UK! Friendly staff make the ordering simple. We can recommend the Flathead if it is available. Not to be missed if visiting Manly.

I ordered the fish and chips and my friend ordered the salt and pepper prawns and both of us were very, very happy! Yes, it's a bit more expensive than the usual fish and chips but you get what you pay for and the chips are awesome (and I consider myself a chip aficionado).
I was impressed by how many large prawns my friend got and I would probably order the salt and pepper prawns next time - and there will definitely be a next time!
The only problem was they were so good that the seagulls at the beach don't leave you alone! (but that's all part of the fun too).

We stopped here after the manley ferry trip over. We had the family box Inc. 4 oysters, 8 calamari, 4 prawns and four fish (hoki) with endless large chips, potato cakes, sweet potato crisps plus tartare and sweet chilli sauce. As a family of four this was more than enough and the fish was fresh, superbly cooked and so, so tasty. Makes a British fish n chip meal seem like a real loser by comparison. If you are gonna have fish n chips anywhere in Sydney - come here. Oh and they played The Strokes on the iPod - perfect.
