It Just Has To Be Delicious

I have two favourite restaurants for fish and chips in Brisbane. I generally don’t find the regular fish and chip shops very inspiring, but there is one in particular that stands out for its freshness and quality. Samie’s near Portside Wharf is very casual, cafe style with a few tables inside and several outside.

The restaurant has it’s own free car park, but if you arrive on a weekend night you will be quizzed by the parking attendant due to the nearby ‘Eat Street Market’ traffic looking for a parking space. Once you are there, you can choose any of the regular fish and chip options – snapper, barramundi, salmon, whiting, prawns along with dips, and salads, We found the coleslaw salad to be very nice. If you want something more substantial you can choose a platter, you can have oysters to start, sashimi, fish pie – there is an endless list of fishy options and specials on the menu. You can also buy seafood to take home and the lovely staff will pin bone and fillet your choices for no extra charge.

If you want to go for something more classy, try Reef at the Gasworks complex in Skyring Terrace. There’s a nice vibe to the environment, a comprehensive bar with lovely oyster shell decor. The tables and chairs are a bit more comfortable and the selection seems to be huge and incredibly fresh. I love the oysters at Reef – they had a variety of reasonably priced South Australian and Tasmanian oysters – delicious with a squeeze of lemon. You can have them cooked kilpatrick etc but I like mine natural.

You can also choose one of their signature platters or make up your own fresh shellfish platter from the lobsters, crabs, prawns, bugs etc on display.

The fish and chip options are wonderfully fresh, the batter is beautifully crispy, and the chips are very tasty and morish.

Sashimi is also incredibly fresh and beautifully presented.
