Read some of the reviews about our fish and chips.

We have been very fortunate to have received some wonderful reviews about our fish and chips, seafood, marinated meals and salads in Rose Bay. We have included some of them here and yes, there is a mix of good and bad, but that is how we like it, everything about Fish Cove is real, authentic and genuine, just like our food. We have even included a link to the original under each review.

Not Quite Nigella review of Fish Cove in Rose Bay

"The honey mustard salmon is rich and perfectly cooked. Although it is cooked through, it's wonderfully moist and mustard and dill sauce has a touch of sweetness to it too. I squeeze some lemon on it to lighten to richness of the salmon."

"Very tasty! Yummy food! Highly recommended! Great place and friendly staff! ❤️👍🏼 We had a family dinner: super fresh Seafood salad, Buttered fish mmmmm, Yummy Lobster and very tasty prawns, octopus and chips! 😋"
"Really ... for $18 I got the smallest piece of fish that wouldn’t even feed a child and octopus that had no taste - won’t be coming back."
"A brilliant chippy in the heart of Rose Bay village that serves fabulously fresh fish and chips. A new edition to the village that is family owned and operated that is striving to consistently provide high quality offerings. The venue offers a dine in option which is a real bonus with a few outdoor tables to watch the world go by. My favourite dish is the battered fish with finger licking good potato scallops with salt and vinegar!"
"Consistent service and crumbed flathead + chips are delish and is my regular order ...Lady behind the counter always friendly along with rest of team. If you want something different just ask with a smile!"
"Opened today and was amazed by the shop fit out, it is very nicely presented! We have been here twice in one day! 👌🏼sooo good! Calamari and fish cocktails were very yummy and fresh, and we enjoyed the chicken salt on our hot chips! We ordered burgers for dinner, which we devoured in minutes they were so fresh, tasty and full of flavour. We also ordered a Greek said, which was by far the freshest Greek Salad I’ve ever had! Highly recommend, friendly service and amazing food ! We will be back many times !"
"The four of us all had the battered NZ Hake and chips to takeaway. It was yummy, moist fish with a lovely thin, crispy batter. Will definitely be back to try some other items. !"
"Super fresh selection of dishes cooked to perfection. Super friendly family run business. Highly reccomend."

A very Happy Customer 😀"

"Recently opened. Can dine in or take away. Decor is fresh and modern. Staff very helpful on helping you decide. Can highly recommend the Salmon in mustard & dill. Cooked to perfection!!"
"Great, I finally found my new favourite seafood place. They just opened 7 weeks ago and already do amazing job. You might want to order their Grilled Atlantic Salmon with Mustard & Dill or Grilled Atlantic Salmon with Thai Chilli Basil an Coriander 🤩🤩🤩 Ah yeah, they also have fresh salad selections, my favourite is the Beetroot, Cranberry and Carrot salad one"
"Tasty well priced good portions"
"Great food, rude woman behind the counter."
"We went there tonight and had the best fish and chips in the eastern suburbs. Very clean, very fresh, friendly staff - just a great casual local. Eat in which we did or take away. Cant wait to go back."
"I was eager to check out Fish Cove not long after they opened and definitely wasn't disappointed. In a nutshell it leaves it's immediate local competition a long ways behind. The quality of cooked fish and seafood available is superb. But more than that I was incredibly impressed with the ready to cook seafood beautifully displayed. On top of that there's a very nice selection of salads on offer to compete your meal. You could easily cater for a perfect dinner party (even an impromptu one) with the options available from lobster mornay, marinated fish fillets,prawn skewers,etc. On top of that the fresh seafood looks fantastic as well. All this in a place open later than anything in the surrounding area which is incredibly convenient to say the least. Top effort on your new shop folks!"
"Great fish burgers."
"Great quality fresh seafood. Very hospitable owners. And no Basa! New Zealand Hake, even in the fish cocktails. Highly recommend!"
"Love the food. Great variety! Reasonably priced but best of all the customer service and the attention to detail"
