“A Gold Coast Icon”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The freshest and widest variety of just caught seafood. Prawns, bugs, oysters and vast variety of fish. Highly recommended though it can get very busy, and could do with more customer seating, especially under cover.

“Fresh”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The seafood is lovely & fresh. The only downside is the time it takes to order & collect because it's always so busy

“Mediocre fish & chips”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

I've had a no. of items, so here's my review.

Fish and chips: Dory fish both grilled and battered are delicious but not fantastic. We had tasted better ones.
Grilled Garlic calamari: Tasteless, the marinate was insufficient and the calamari was under grilled.
Fresh Oysters: I had tasted better fresher ones elsewhere.
Grilled scallops: I find this quite tasty however my peeps find it mediocre.
Grilled herb prawns: Quite delish in my opinion.

“Be prepared to queue!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

The reviews we had read had our mouths watering, but we were sadly disappointed.
The fish and chips we had were not what we were expecting.....,think more the kind of fish portion you would get frozen in the supermarket.
Also there were massive queues (over an hour!) so be prepared to wait. We thought ahead and placed a phone order but still had to wait over 30 minutes after the allotted pick up time.
Overall it was very disappointing, but on the plus side the prices were very reasonable. $9 per person for fish and chips.

“Fishmonger at Burleigh Heads far superior!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

Out for a Sunday drive, we decided to have fish and chips at the iconic Pete's Fish Market. We waited around 40 minutes (all part of the experience). However, frankly, just can't figure out what all the buzz is about. The fish we sampled was very poor quality indeed and looked and tasted like frozen fish fillets from a store. Far from being FRESH it tasted very fishy and unpleasant. Just do not know how anyone can justify serving such poor quality food.
