Is there any Sydney experience more quintessential than beachside fish 'n' chips? We think not! With crisp beer batter, moreish tartare sauce, and thick hand-cut chips, eat away your winter blues by enjoying the best fish 'n' chips in Sydney.
Here are our picks for Sydney's best fish and chips.
The Bucket List | Bondi Beach
With sprawling views of iconic Bondi Beach, and a relaxed, eclectic décor, The Bucket List on Bondi Beach serves up excellent fish and chips to Bondi locals and tourists alike. Order a plate of fish and chips (with tartare, pickles, and lemon), a cocktail jug on the side and pretend its summer.
Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel | Watsons Bay
There's not much we'd rather be doing than sitting back and looking out over Watson's Bay while tucking into some of the best fish and chips in Sydney at the Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel. Order off the 'classics' menu, and enjoy a plate of fish, chips, and sauce while taking in the spectacular view. We recommend heading down on a Monday night, when fish 'n' chips are the daily special, so you can spend the extra money on a chocolate brownie sundae.
The Boathouse Palm Beach | Palm Beach
Palm Beach's iconic Boathouse Café delivers their take on this iconic dish to complement the spectacular modern Australian menu. Beer-battered fish served with chips and house-made tartare sauce can (and should) be enjoyed on their wharf over Station Beach. Yum!
North Bondi Fish | Bondi Beach
Matt Moran's newest restaurant, North Bondi Fish, specialises in creating exceptional fresh fish and seafood dishes. North Bondi Fish allows you to take in the beautiful view of Bondi, while enjoying your super fresh (and super delicious) beer-battered flathead fillet with chips and tartare sauce. Bring your friends, and share one of the restaurants unique cocktails, pitchers, or house-made sodas.
The Fish Shop | Potts Point
Merivale's famed The Fish Shop in Potts Point serves up fish 'n' chips among their extensive seafood menu. Take your pick of side sauces, and enjoy inside the Hamptons-inspired restaurant or take it away with you.
Fishmongers | Bondi Beach, Manly
With locations in Bondi and Manly (and Byron, too!) Fishmongers has become an institution for chips and quality seafood in Sydney. If you don't feel like a side of hand cut chips (they are delicious) with your grilled or battered fish fillet, you can opt for either rice and soy sauce, tempura veggies, or a virtuous salad with corn and pesto.
