Fantastically fresh fish (I recommend the flathead tails), with really crisp chips, my mouth is watering thinking of it! There are tables and chairs in the outside eating area but this isn't a fancy restaurant. It gets incredibly busy at almost anytime of the year...More

Visited the Co-op for quick fish and chips for lunch. We had the catch of the day which was black snapper. It was beautifully cooked, the chips were great. Perfect for a relaxed, very casual lunch

Hi Spretze, Thank you for your good and honest review! We really appreciate it. I love the black snapper when it's in - it's best crumbed if you ask me. Hope to see you again soon.

Description
The Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-operative Takeaway offers the best fish & chips in town. Our covered dining deck is a hub of activity every day of the week, popular with locals and visitors alike. On a sunny day customers have the option of sitting at the outdoor tables overlooking the fishing vessels, or taking a picnic walk to Muttonbird island. Our menu includes fish & chips, calamari, prawns, fish cocktails, salt & pepper squid, grilled fish, battered fish and crumbed fish to mention a few options. Each day there is a Specials Board indicating the daily catch in seafood (subject to availability). If your choice remains unsatisfied, you may choose any fresh seafood you like, and we will cook and prepare it to your liking for a small fee. We use mono-unsaturated cooking oil which is changed regularly. To complement our seafood, you will find a large variety of ice cream, including high quality scoops in waffle cones. We invite both adults and children to enjoy a delicious refreshing snack on any day. Chilled soft drinks and bottled water are available for purchase. The takeaway caters to group bookings as well as individual customers and families. We encourage you to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy with your meal. We are open from 9 AM to 7 PM almost every day of the year.
