In a place with so many resturants, its pretty poor they dont cater for coeliacs. Wouldnt bother with them.

Had a steak sandwich. Most probably should have gone for the fish. Steak sandwich was average at $11.95.

We ordered this evening crumbed barramundi (crumbed in parsley and breadcrumbs) and a serving of medium chips. This was really lovely, very fresh and hot. Nice service by either the owner or customer service guy.

What a great way to enjoy lunch - great fish and chips sat at the Noosa river - doesn't get much better than this! We had snapper and chips, food fresh and hot and not over priced - cheaper than Macca's for the 4 of us and much better! Highly recommend if you are down at the river for the... More

I do not like giving bad reviews but I was so disappointed with the food from here that I just had to say something.... Worst fish ever! Couldn't even eat it. We ordered the snapper and it was not fresh at all.... We fish so we know fresh fish and this was just awful. So disappointing as we were on... More

Really enjoyed our lunch here today. A simple piece of grilled snapper with Greek salad and chips, well cooked, large serve of chips (we couldn't finish the small between two of us) and a lovely, fresh salad with the dressing in a separate container (and it looked like proper balsamic and olive oil, not the fake packet dressings you usually...

Nothing to rave about. Guy behind the counter was on his own during lunch so was caught in between cooking and serving so service was average. Calamari was average despite the other positive reviews.

No one in the shop but we figured it's 15 minutes from closing so that's why. I had battered Barramundi and it was reasonable but it all stopped by there, coconut prawns... More

My family has been going for fish and chip picnics along the river since I was 3 yrs old!! I now take my little 2 yr old down to enjoy the sunset and a box of the most delicious fish and chips in Noosa... don't forget their amazing calamari and salt and pepper squid :) A local treasure!!!

Hubby & I grabbed some Calamari, chips & some Aioli to have on the river cruise. We are both pretty fussy, well we both said it was the best calamari, the best chips & a yummy aioli. The calamari just melted in our mouths. We will be back for more.
