Well worth a visit. Not the best location to eat but a stones throw from the break water wall. Flake and chips x 2 and it was brilliant. It's nice to get really fresh fish and I guess that's why the co-op is so popular...More

When we are in Coffs Harbour we always stop in at the Co-op for the best fish and chips in town. The food is always very fresh and cooked brilliantly. The outdoor seating is great and is the perfect spot to enjoy lunch.

Heaps of choice of fresh fish to cook at home. We got the $35 family basket - nice variety, plenty to eat, fast service, great taste. A good way to end a day out in the town before heading home again.

The Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-operative Takeaway offers the best fish & chips in town. Our covered dining deck is a hub of activity every day of the week, popular with locals and visitors alike. On a sunny day customers have the option of sitting at the outdoor tables overlooking the fishing vessels, or taking a picnic walk to Muttonbird island.

Our menu includes fish & chips, calamari, prawns, fish cocktails, salt & pepper squid, grilled fish, battered fish and crumbed fish to mention a few options. Each day there is a Specials Board indicating the daily catch in seafood (subject to availability). If your choice remains unsatisfied, you may choose any fresh seafood you like, and we will cook and prepare it to your liking for a small fee.

We use mono-unsaturated cooking oil which is changed regularly.

To complement our seafood, you will find a large variety of ice cream, including high quality scoops in waffle cones. We invite both adults and children to enjoy a delicious refreshing snack on any day. Chilled soft drinks and bottled water are available for purchase.

The takeaway caters to group bookings as well as individual customers and families. We encourage you to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy with your meal.

We are open from 9 AM to 7 PM almost every day of the year.
