Just had some home made Fish cakes and fish pieces for lunch at Saltwater cafe. The seafood is always great and reasonably prices. Always a ton of people there. Don't miss it.

We had lunch at Saltwater on 11 Feb 2017. We were out sightseeing in the area and we arrived around 2pm. We were pleased to see that they served lunch until 3pm. We ordered 2 x Fish of the Day - 1 grilled Mahi Mahi and 1 battered Flake. Both meals were absolutely delicious and our plates were completely cleared.... More

Where do I start?? Looked up on TripAdvisor the times that this business was open until and it said 8pm. We got there from travelling from Tilba at 7.15, and whilst it's not a huge drive it was the reason we travelled into Bermagui was to try out this fish and chip shop. When we arrived the roller windows were... More

Have just purchased takeaway lunch for the family since under new management. Was aweful. Soggy chips. Burnt fish. Forgot calamari from order. Over cooked nuggets. So disappointing. Will not recommend new owners.

Lunch at the cafe . Nice spot next to the mariner, very busy in the holiday season. Park next to it for the kids, for the nomads best to wait till the school holidays are over. Much the same along the coast,

Loved the fact you could order outside for takeaway and sit beside the fishermans wharf or dine in. A very popular spot as evidenced by the long queues we saw. For those requiring gluten free fish and chips they offered grilled fish on foil and all the chips were gluten free and cooked separately. Fresh fish caught locally and great... More

Travelling along the Sapphire Coast, we have had the opportunity to eat a lot of seafood. Saltwater Cafe has the best grilled seafood platter. The herb calamari & cheesy chilli mussels are AMAZING! Definitely recommend Saltwater so great meal.

Saltwater is located right on the edge of Bermagui Harbour and is the place to go for sea food. It is reasonably priced, meal sizes are ample and the food is good.

We've dined in and ordered take away dozens of times here and it's always been excellent. All of their fish and chips etc are to die for and pretty good value. The Seafood Basket is recommended. Be sure to check that you get your tartar sauce in your take away as they never give it to you unless you ask... More
