Quick, convenient, friendly, fresh, tasty, perfectly cooked, with a good range of salts and sauces. Seriously, ticks all the important boxes. I had a $10 'box of treats' - a scallop, piece of fish, squit pieces, crab stick etc. too big for me so I stripped the batter and shared the remainder with the seagulls - best pickings for the...

Planned to give Flippers another try after a not so good experience last time we visited. Pleasantly surprised this time that food was much better. Portion sizes still smaller than our local fish shop but we are in a tourist part of town so keeping prices reasonable is important, so guess better to just cut sizes down. Still the fish... More

I was very happy to discover this food, because it was quite good and fast. But a lot of people of Hobart told me that they are known for cooking fish which was battered in China ! The fish comes from Tassie but all the preparations are done in China...Sad.

Ordered a serve of crumbed trevalla and got two generous pieces. Really good and not oily at all. The 2 scallops were also yummy. Nice to sit on the dock and enjoy the day.

I had flake and chips with a crab stick. The fish was so oily it was literally dripping as I tried to eat it. It was not that tasty at all and after a couple of bites I tossed the rest in the bin. The chips were not so nice either so they also ended up in the bin, possibly... More

My wife and I bought a seafood dinner at Flippers. It is cooked fresh in a barge - you stand on the wharf and lean on a bench to make your order. The food is very nice and the price is cheap.

Great place for quick takeaway local fished product. Take a ticket and buy local fish and chips. Stroll the dock precinct with you food and if lucky see a seal or dolphin playing among the boats.

This is one of several barges tied-up downtown at the busy Hobart waterfront. We did a late-afternoon weekday take-away (the only option). These barges are good value for money, by Australian standards. We tried 4 kinds of fish and a large order of chips. Despite the size of the order, is was ready in 10 minutes. The chips would have...

This is the Harry Cafe De Wheels of Tasmania. Traditional fish and chips with much more on offer. The seafood basket or equivalent is good, so are the potato cakes fish is cooked how you like and the chips are golden. Be aware there may be a que as it is a popular place though you don't have to wait... More
