Lovely fish, chips and mushy peas from Cooper's Catch! It's a popular spot, so expect a short wait around dinnertime, but its definitely worth waiting for. Their menu is very expansive with lots of choice. Chips were chunky and crispy on the outside - delicious!...More

Very popular so be prepared to wait up to half an hour. Excellent fish and chips so the wait is worth it. Makes a nice change to have a takeaway rather than eating out every night when on holiday.

Grabbed a meal after whale watch trip in rough seas. We were still feeling a bit tender but needed food before drive up to Picton. Really nice fish and chips and the other half had a fish burger. Great food and reasonably priced.
