Hard to beat this takeaway place behind the fish markets next to the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club for good takeaway fish and chips, and a cold drink, while you sit at an outside boardwalk table and admire the views over the marina and harbour. Quick...More

Fish that tastes like fish, good chunky chips & fresh salad. Nice & relaxing place to enjoy fish & chips by the water.

Stopped for a coffee before an appointment nearby. Plenty of covered tables outside only. Place is a bit rundown. Tables sticky and perished however the staff and coffee are fine.

Very good fish and chips. Eat by the harbour side and enjoy the views. Service can be a bit slow right at lunch time though that is not a problem.

The view is great, but the food is not cheap. We took a family of 4 out for fish and chips and it cost nearly $60 without drinks. The food was ok but not anything special. The view was good but don't feed the seagulls.

I've had to go here a few times with people wanting to and I've been disgusted in the food every time. Worst takeaway I've come across and it isn't getting any better every time I have to go there.
