Normally when you go into a fish a chips shop, you'd expect battered fish and chips. At "A Fish Called Coogee", they have all the fresh seafood marinated in their counter uncooked so that they can cook to order. They serve sides like bok choy...More

Great fresh fish. Chosen by you and you pay by the weight. Amazing fish and flavor options. I suggest takeaway and eating it on the grass by the beach. Definitely a locals favourite

Outstanding food and fresh fish! We had a dozen Bluff oysters, the tuna and the chili-lime dory. They charge based on weight and grill the fish to order. The smells were delicious and so was the food! Even the salad was good, mixed greens, sundried...More

Great basic serve of fish and chips. For all else don't bother, go to a restaurant instead. Same price, or cheaper, and you won't have to bother cramming in to the small place. We got stung with a $75 bill for a few bits and...More

Local small fish restaurant. Bench seating indoors or out. I love this place for its fresh fish, seafood and salad. Always Fast and fresh. Can be busy

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity

Brent H, Your review is a struggle to read. More than often, you try to sound sophisticated with poor grammar. Fish and chip shop is the most casual eatery you can walk into for a comfort meal please do not expect silver service and the world of it. Small businesses are harder to operate than you think and the rise in food prices and everything else doesn't work in the business's favour. Cut this place a bit of slack as I reckon this place is doing just fine! The reality of it is "Food prices Up, Cost of operation is up, Cost of labour is up but controllable and this often lead to exploitation of staff, Menu prices has to stay affordable which means profit margin is next to nothing in order to have return customers" Next time when you write a review, please take into consideration all these before you try and shoot them down. Spread the love, not Hate Brent H. Regards, Reviewthereviewer.
