I had the best grilled barramundi for $16 at the Hook n Cook. The fish was large & very tasty. It was browned & cooked properly (ie not colourless & dry due to overcooking as I often find.) There are a few seats inside, which we used as it was a windy day. If you like your fish & chips,... More

We have had quite a few fish and chips throughout the coast between melbourne and Sydney and honestly, the fish here was among the top 3. Very good fish, only lightly battered (usually you will find more greasy batter rather than fish). lots of free condiments too and the service was fast.

A local referred me to this shop, stating they sell above standard fish and chips. We were disappointed by what we received. Make sure if you order from here you get what you order as we didn't. We are not big on heavily battered fish so we ordered grilled....but we received the battered version.

Ordered whiting and chips, a potato scallop that can't be rated as it was dropped in the dirt and medium chips. With the DIY condiments it was great to be as heavy handed with chicken salt as we liked.

Impressive fast food outlet on beautiful Marine Pde in Tea Gardens. Good size fillets and crispy chips. A little expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for.

It was a cold night so we decided on fish and chips for dinner. The fish was excellent, I don't like greasy fried fish so was super pleased when we opened it. A huge serving too. Well recommended. They had all sorts of items, hamburgers, chiko rolls, steak sandwiches, many varieties,of fish.

Thank Sandra T
