Accidentally found this place while looking for fresh prawns. Decided to eat something light as we were starving and accidentally ordered 2 servings of fish and chips with extra fish. Was there anything left? NOPE. Loved the extra touch of having a fresh salad with...my fish and chips. Even polished that.More

We ate here several times because it was so good. That tempura King George whiting was memorable. While it looks and feels like a basic cafe, the quality and handling of the seafood is superb. The meals are delivered to basic bench and table seating,...arriving in brown cardboard boxes. We also ate salad, chips and other accompaniments that were fresh and well prepared. A glass of wine topped it all off.More

Thank you Jenni, we love our cardboard boxes, some customers do not. After eight years of looking, we still can't find the appropriate plate to serve fish and chips on, therefore our recycled cardboard box has been replicated by many in the game. Happy that...More

We were really looking forward to fresh and cooked seafood from the Fresh Fish Place that we put on top of our places to eat whilst in Port Lincoln, but what a disappointment. We ordered takeaway from dinner and this was the experience: Ordered the...salt & pepper calamari meal that comes with chips and salad, I could not believe that they served the salad in the same container with the hot food, so it was a steamed salad - YUK! The calamari came a one large clump and tasted off, so could not eat it! I also ordered the popcorn prawns, they were somewhat better in taste, however they were not deveined, so the crunchy poo was off putting and also didn't eat them. The chips were the worst I have ever tasted oily and soggy. So spent a fortune and couldn't eat it. We were also in the market for some fresh seafood, but it didn't look very good, so we sourced all our fresh seafood from Capitals Seafood, which looked so much fresher. Couldn't find any decent fresh Tuna anywhere in Port Lincoln - who would have thought, must be all exported, get better Tuna in Brisbane!!More

We drove out of town (not too far) to visit this recommended seafood cafe. You can eat there, but we got takeaway and it was a tasty meal.

Eat outside and you'll be brushing the flies away. Food is way too expensive for locally caught fish. The batter used on the fish is excellent and the fish had the texture and taste of fresh fish but the price wasn't right.More

Unfortunately, we like the rest of Australia have flies. What is also unfortunate is that most Australians are used to eating cheap imported seafood where we encourage third world countries to overfish their stocks. At The Fresh Fish Place, we only use AUSTRALIAN SEAFOOD. Here...More

Prepared on time. Checked twice ealier in the day re portion sizes. However, despite assurances some people were not satisfied and felt under fed for what is a premium price. This would rate as average quality in Melbourne. Not recommend.More

Dropped in to grab some fresh oysters and prawns for an afternoon snack. This was the third feed of oysters for me on the is trip round the Eyre Peninsula, and by far these were the freshest, juiciest ones I had on the trip (and...that includes the ones pulled straight from the sea on the oyster farm!). The prawns were divine, big, plump and tasty. Will be calling in here to taste some of their cooked seafood next time we're in Lincoln.More

No crabs but definitely king George whiting. You might like to consider nannygai too which is a wonderful fish. Good luck.
