Fisherman’s Wharf in Woy Woy is located on a little Jetty over the Brisbane Waters and it is an institution of the Central Coast.
We ate at the Takeaway fish and chip shop previously, which also houses a seafood market if you’d prefer to have your food by the beach or at home. This time we chose to eat in at the restaurant.
Located at the back of the property, the restaurant overlooks the Brisbane waters and you can sit at one of the larger tables inside or at a bench stool on the balcony and watch the boats go go or the pelicans fly in. It’s a casual and relaxing space and a great spot to have lunch. Be sure to book ahead though, as it gets busy.
The menu here is more upmarket than takeaway shop obviously, and that carries a higher price tag.
There’s mussels, oysters, clams, pippies, tuna tartare and more on their entree menu. We chose to share a few entrees for our meal. We enjoyed some fish tacos, grilled (but you can get fried if you prefer), topped with a salsa and chilli sauce. Only a little bit of fish on each, but they were super tasty!
The kingfish carpaccio was also lovely, beautifully marinated in olive oil and topped with onion, capers, grapefruit and herbs.
In addition, the grilled scampi had excellent flavours and presented nicely with some greens.
Each dish was approximately $25 but the mains are significantly higher. There’s crab, tuna, salmon, snapper and even some platters if you prefer. On our day of visit they also had quite a lot of specials.
The food here is great, the atmosphere is chilled and you can even enjoy your lunch with a wine, beer or cocktail.
