I was after something fresh and fast. The fish wrap delivered. Located in a groovy back alley behind "The Beachie" Fish Mongers is ideally located and pretty cruisey. Worth a visit whilst you're in BYRON.

We went twice here for lunch and both times the food was fantastic. First time we had salt and pepper squid, fish and chips, prawns and oysters and it everything was very tasty. The oysters are exceptional and we can highly recommend them. The second time we had barramundi with tempura vegetables and snapper with chips as well as some... More

We were recommended to the Fish Mongers by the owner of the guest house where we stayed. We were looking for some quality sea food at reasonable prices and we were not disappointed. We had to wait for a table to become free as there were lots of people looking to dine there, but once seated we were in for... More

I ate here due to great reviews - & this is not a complaint, simply a true assessment of my experience. It was busy which I expect of a popular eatery. The waitstaff are actually very lovely (especially the blonde lady with the accent!) I ordered & it was a bit pricey but that is also expected in Byron Bay.... More

Hey Angie It's important to note that you visited in the height of Xmas/New Year and we are proud of the fact that we try not have anyone waiting for any longer than 45 minutes, particularly when you consider how many take away orders come through on the mobile. We have lines out the door for hours and cook everything... More

With so many good eating options in Byron these days you don't have to go anywhere twice - not so for fishmongers as there are too many good things on the menu to only go once. We tried a mixture of grilled salmon & barramundi, octopus, calamari, fish tacos & a fish wrap - all delicious served with hand cut... More

Thanks Archi Thanks for taking the time to review us particularly as we had an incredibly busy Xmas/New Year and really aimed to keep the wait time to a reasonable amount. So glad to hear that you visited us on more than one occasion and kept coming back to taste the rest of the menu. The Taco's and wraps have... More

Salt and pepper squid was cooked to perfection. Nice hand cut chips. Super-busy December day yet everything was fast & efficient under pressure. Not a lot if time for service, but doing a grand job serving a tonne of people. Good stuff.

Oh thanks Kylee We certainly aim to keep the food fresh and delicious regardless what time of the year it is. Next time try the Taco's even though the salt and pepper squid is pretty hard to pass up. Here's to a great year for you and all you love :) Spresa More

Fish tacos and salt and pepper squid a total score. BYO with the bottle shop a 20m stumble away. Easy casual laneway eating experience.

Small place. Nice grilled fish. Chips are really well coocked with little slices of sweet potatoes, a really nice combination. Fish is seasoned with nice herbs like mint. The tartare sauce is just amazing, never tried a nice sauce like this one. Nice portion of potatoes. Absolutely to try.

Hi Adrian Thanks for visiting us over the crazy Xmas/New Year period and really happy to hear you enjoyed your fresh and tasty meal. We are only small in stature but pack a mean punch with flavour.

We had a great breakfast here so decided to go for dinner. Unfortunately the Dinner was not as good. Next time in Byron we would go somewhere else.
