This place recently won the world record for the smallest serve of cod at a fish & chip shop. To boot, the chips serve was small, but tasty. But way over priced! Stay away if you don’t like being ripped off.

Over priced, tiny portions. Save your money as there's plenty oc better chipies around that serve quality ghish and chips

Best traditional fish & chips I have ever eaten outside GB. You can see that chips are fresh and delicious. And the fish, OMG, it is very crispy. If you are in Sydney you have to try it.

This fish and chip shop at Coogee Beach looks very nice and there were lots of customers waiting. We selected the “Aussie Belly Buster” for $33, said to have 4 fish cocktails, calamari, prawns and chips and a “grilled Barramundi with salad” for $18.50. Typically...More

A bit disappointed by what I ended up with after long wait. Squashed, soggy chips, with a tasteless piece of fish, all for $19.50 which felt a bit expensive.

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
