The hunt took a while, but here’s our pick of the best in Sydney. Sydneycool would like to mention that fish is usually charged at market prices and we didn’t always have just the regular fish and chips – but we have also included the price of their regular fish and chips. Close to a beach was also a must for us, not in a restaurant or a shopping area – but to eat at the beach.
Bondi’s Best- North Bondi Beach
We like this place in Bondi – just a minute up the road from the beach in North Bondi. Everything we had at Bondi’s Best was good quality – not cheap in fact a little $ but highly recommended. You can eat in or takeaway, this time at Bondi”s Best we ate our meal there as it started to rain – but we do like to takeaway and sit on the beach with fish and chips and a cold beer or a glass of wine – nice as on a warm summer evening.

Dune’s Kiosk-Palm Beach North
Dunes Kiosk at Palm Beach North is attached to the Dunes Restaurant on the beach – they use the same kitchen. The quality of the fish and chips is very good but expensive – beer battered flathead ($18-50). The chips were very crunchy & golden, nicely cooked, obviously the oil was very hot and at the perfect temperature. The fish was fresh tasting and moist, not overcooked, batter was light with a good crunch. We have to mention you can get other good quality fish and chips at Palm Beach but for us being able to walk across to the beach in less than a minute makes this the perfect place for fish and chips. The downside – the staff can be as rude as you find.

Selfish- Bronte Beach
This is our favourite fish & chip shop oppsite the beach at Bronte beach itself, it was cheap and the quality good. We had perch fish and chips ($12-00), you don’t get much for your money but the quality is good. The fish was moist with obvious fresh flavour, batter light and very crunchy to the bite, good chips – hot, crunchy, darkish golden and fluffy inside – some of the best we had in this hunt for Sydney beachside fish and chips.

So that’s our pick of the best beachside fish and chips in Sydney. Sydneycool would like to hear from you if you have a favourite fish and chips – remember our criteria is quality, but it has to be close to a beach as that just seems right to us, maybe something we did when we were in our teens. Sun going down and you’ve spent a day in the sun, it really is a great way to enjoy a meal of fish and chips.
