Chunky fish, good batter, excellent chips, very generous serves - could do one for 2 people. A bit slow.

Ordered scallops as entree to share, fish chowder and grilled fish as mains. Scallops were good and mains were average. Half of the bread roll served with the chowder was stone cold and other half warm which detracted from enjoying my meal. Restaurant prices for an average meal.

We had a late lunch which was good because we missed the rush. Excellent service from lovely staff and two great meals. Plenty of fresh fish on offer too. Highly recommended.

First time here since the owners have taken over.. have never seen the place so full.. have heard nothing but great reports as of late so I had to see for myself. Mine and my partners meals were amazing. Couldn't fault them or the service.. So happy to find a great place with gluten free options.. We'll be back :)

Today we had a lovely fish platter at Fish On The Edge. All the elements were fresh tasty and perfectly cooked. This was one of the nicest fish meals which we have eaten. Highly Recommend.

Enjoyed a fantastic meal with a friend unknown this was the new owners "official" first day. We were welcomed and asked for feedback on the food and coffee. The meals were tasty and well presented as was the coffee. Shame we couldn't fit a dessert in...next time !

Service very poor. Asked for a skinny milk milkshake the lady brings a full cream and says "We've run out of skinny milk" I replied, "That's ok I won't have that thank you" and she snapped and said "It's got ice-cream in it anyway". How rude!! The young man servicing drinks had his fingers wrapped around the neck of another... More

Fresh seafood cooked with care. This establishment is situated along the Wivenhoe strip. Dine in or take away, the meals have a moden spin on the old fish & chips.

Unfortunately we were caught severely understaffed during an extremely busy lunch trade. For this we apologised and attended to our diners as quickly as possible. No one waited two hours for their meal, and we had a very full restaurant. As I explained to all my customers this day, it was an unusual combination of our cafe filling to capacity... More
