Quaint fish market that serves you fresh fish to take away and grill, braai or fry. Well-priced...best prices on the Sunshine Coast. Friendly staff at the restaurant and will prepare you a quick hake and chips or an elaborate meal including calamari and the "decorations"....More

They have a limited selection of fish on display and I suspect that they have more at the back, as after I selected and paid for my fish a better option appeared, so ask. Received good service but limited advice. Fish was nice and fresh

We are really spoiled here with fish caught and sold within hours as opposed to days. Selection weather dependant and great value for money.

Despite the appearance- although not complaining- this is a hidden gem here in Port Alfred. Sitting on the river bank- in the oldest street in the town, you grab a table- (outside) and then go in and choose the fish you want. Simply scrumptious. Fresh...More
