“Best meal in a fish market we’ve ever had.”

They SELL FISH here!! Lots of fish! You can pick your own or have them use the “catch of the day” for batter or breading before frying. A meal comes with slaw and fries and all three of us were pleased with our selections.

“Informality” prevails - in every sense. You grab an empty table as you are able and you can “people watch” as others come in trying to figure out the system or ordering exactly what they want to take home for personal preparation. (Clearly, some people were “regulars”.)

There is NO alcohol served - so do your drinking before hand or after.

We loved our lunches here today, we had the fresh grilled salmon and the fish burger. Everything was delicious, we got it super quick and with really good service - my sister asked a thousand questions and changed her order and the lady behind the counter was so patient and kind.. sorry! Thanks so much, we loved it

Here you can buy all your fish oysters mussels to take away fresh or have a scoop of chips with fresh cooked fish . I love the terraki fish fillets just a dip in flour and pan fry .you can buy the whole fish or the cut up fillets of different types of fish .i love the smoked roe when they can do it . You can sit down and enjoy your fish and chips inside or outside around the corner . It’s a cheap meal for families. It’s up the top end of Cuba street .well worth the walk up .

Stumbled across this place while on Cuba Street. Great concept of a fish stall and a takeaway where you can have the fish that you just bought cooked.
Ordered the meal with battered Terahiki fish and it was absolutely gorgeous. The fish was definitely the best that I can remember having.
