“we keep coming back”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

It was 8 years ago since the very first time we tried their fish, chips and prawns. since then we always make sure to drop and grab something to eat from Peter's every time we visit Gold Coast. Now all our friends are doing the same. Fresh and affordable, but my only complaint now is the service is not as quick as before. We were there last week and it took 45 minutes for my simple fish and chips, I only ordered a basic one to be quick but the lady who ordered a fresh fish to cook behind me received her food at the same time with me.

“Overated rubbish!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

I cannot understand why restaurants/cafes like Peters Fish market, continues to attract large amounts of customers!

My only conclusion is, either, alot of these customers are first timers, or, most of these people are just dropped off there for 20mins by coach tour companies.. either way, this place does not deserve the amount of customers that it attracts!

Peter's Fish market, like so many other eateries around the world, simply trades on its previously good reputation.. It is overpriced and overrated..

There are many other Fish n Chip cafes and seafood markets on The Gold Coast that could serve much better food than this place, with their eyes closed! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE.....

“WOW Best fish & chips on the GC”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We came across this place by chance and thought we would give it a try. It is obviously very popular on the Gold Coast as we arrived at 1.45pm on a Saturday and the place was full.

We ordered the calamari, prawns and fish of the day with chips and the 30 minute wait was certainly worth it. It was divine, the calamari just melted in your mouth. In fact it was the best meal we had all week!

A definite must on your trip to the Gold Coast

“Really cool chippy”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

When we arrived in Gold coast from Uk, our family said "we'll go to the chippy for tea". Not being ungrateful, but travelling to the other side of the world this was the last thing we wanted to eat as it's a weekly occurrence back home.
Well.....this is what all chippy's should be like!!
Fresh sea food all laid out....and by fresh I mean literally just caught and brought in from harbour outside.
The chips were nice and we had the fish of the day (dori i believe) and some fresh prawn's which we cracked open on the benches outside overlooking the harbour.
