Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just want to thank the Fish Van for the kilo of excellently fresh scallops I bought yesterday. They were plump, delicious & so very fresh. Our scallop pizzas we delicious because of them.

Wonderful seafood which is fresh and cooked while you wait. I ordered the scallops and squid pack. The scallops were quite small but because of this they put in plenty and they were delicious. I would have been very happy with just the scallops but...so glad I had the squid as well because it was also generous and melt in your mouth, cooked to perfection. I’ve not had squid as good since I was a child going out squidding with my father.More

Trevalla and chips were very disappointing. The batter was gluggy and the chips soft and tasteless. Had especially asked for chips to be well done but they were not crispy at all. Unique way if serving in paper cone but made it difficult to eat...both together as chips were at bottom. Threw most of it out. Very friendly service, however. Will not return.More

Had the tackle box, was really nice and great value. Was very busy so took a while to be served but well worth the wait. Will definitely be back.

Driving from St Helens to Marion Bay, we were after a quick lunch and The Fish Van filled that need perfectly. All the tables outside the van were full (around 2'ish) but across the way near the marina were some excellent tables. We had the...traditional battered fish and chips (Flathead if I recall) which was very moist and perfectly cooked. Chips were flavoursome of course and wife had some potatoe cakes also which she loved as were very traditional and flavoursome. Service was quick, efficient and swift as the line was always 3 to 5 waiting to order but always moving.More

Friends had recommended The Fish Van has having the best Fish and Chips. We don’t agree with them. The Trevally was dry. I had it grilled and it was tasteless: really, it’s so easy to grill fish with some quality olive oil, salt and ground...pepper. It needs little grilling. My partner had crumbed Trevally with chips. Fish was equally dry. Chips were average.More

We dropped in for lunch after hearing great things about The Fish Van. It was good - not great. Fun concept of the fish and chios being served in a cone!

Went to the Fish Van after visiting Maria Island. Incredibly rude staff member served us. The girl misheard our order (we ordered a veggie burger and she heard “chicken burger”). After being given the incorrect order, we politely told her that we ordered a veggie...burger and she and another staff member proceeded to tell us that we ordered a chicken burger. They did not apologise or offer to provide us with what we actually ordered. Instead we had to pay for a chicken burger that we did not eat due to their mistake. Very rude and incompetent staff. My partner ordered some prawn and squid which was average. Very different experience to the night before at the pub next door to the fish van - the food and service at the pub was amazing. Overall, worst experience in Tasmania, the staff were incredibly rude and miserable.More

The Fish Van is a great place to get some fresh fish cooked very well. The chips are cooked really nicely. Considering the amount of people they had there the service of the food was really quick. We will be eating there again before we...go home.More

We shared calamari and chips, which were fantastic, and scallops and chips, which were also good. Chips were hot but could have been cooked a tad longer.
