“Quantity has dropped”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Have been purchasing fish & chips etc from Fish Tales for years & the quality of the food is usually of good standard even with the new owners.Not greasy & always fresh. The calamari is the best you will get anywhere on the coast.
However the quantity has changed dramatically, especially the chips which has gone downhill. $6 worth of chips didn't even feed 3 adults & 2 small kids (was more like $3 worth). The butterfly whiting was battered & not crumbed as requested. When spending nearly $60 & it comes in one little package you have to question the quantity.

“Great new owners!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

We're locals who have had many lovely meals at Fish Tales Cafe. We're loving the new management and the small changes that are being made to the cafe. The food is always great and the staff are welcoming and friendly. It's a lovely little spot and very kid-friendly. We highly recommend it!

“Great Calamari”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

This has always been a great little cafe and the new owners (he's a chef) are making some changes but it's still great if not better.
Fish & chips, calamari and pineapple rings are all thoroughly recommended by us. The staff are helpful and friendly which is always important. Keep it up guys!

“Best fish'n'chips”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

Guests of our accommodation at Mapleton Falls constantly comment on how the fish and chips are the best they've ever tasted. That's a big call coming from both Melbourne & Sydney visitors. Our personal favorite ... Barramundi.
