  • All Ages

Are you even a Sydneysider (or Australian!) if you don't enjoy satisfyingly salty fish and chips in Sydney from oil-soaked butcher's paper every few weekends?

Whether you like them baked, deep-fried, soaked in vinegar, sprinkled with chicken salt or drenched in tomato sauce, here are our top picks for fish and chips in Sydney.

Fish and chips in Sydney - Watsons Bay Hotel
For the best fish and chips in Sydney, Watsons Bay Hotel is definitely top of the list!

The location isn't the only thing bringing customers back to this beach club again and again. All their seafood is to die for, but their beer-battered fish and chips served with tartare sauce and a lemon wedge is undoubtedly a highlight. Visit their website. 

2. A Fish Called Coogee

Where the locals go. You can opt for their standard fish and chips (smothered in chicken salt, if you wish), or one of their more gourmet fish with exotic and homemade marinades including teriyaki, honey soy, coconut and lime, Balinese, Brazilian, and so much more. Pay by the weight, and have it cooked any way you want. Visit their website.
