Best Fish n Chips in Canberra

By neurotic_gal 20 June 2008 52

Where can you find the best fish n chips in Canberra?

I have been to the fish n chip shop in O’Connor which was pretty darn pricey.

Anyone know of a good, relatively inexpensive fish n chip shop that has good fish that aren’t from Lake Burley Griffin but are from the ocean and have somehow managed to stay relatively fresh on the traverse inland to get here.

I also love a good steamed dim sim, which are usually available at fish n chip shops in Melbourne, yet all the places I’ve gone to here in the good ole Capital  seem to just fry the living daylights out of dim sims (heart attack inducing) if they are available at all.

What’s Your opinion?

Bernie’s from the Bay @ Charnwood gets my vote. We have been buying fish and chips from this wonderful shop ever since they opened, years ago. The fish is beautiful and fresh – there is a variety of fish to pick from and they will cook it fresh for you – battered or grilled. I often buy fresh fish to take home and cook myself and the quality and freshness is always excellent. The fish and seafood is delivered fresh from the South Coast weekly and the quality is fantastic They also sell salads and drinks. The owners are very friendly and very welcoming when I visit. So, if you live in the West Belconnen area, give them a go – I know you’ll be pleased.

Northside, there’s excellent fish and okay chips to be had from Higgins (can’t recall the name I’m afraid). In Charnwood there’s Bernie’s from the Bay which has fantastic chips and pretty good fish too.

Bernies at charnie is very good.

Not anymore. Last time I was there the chips were of the frozen variety rather than the famous hand cut chips they were well known for.

The actual fish and calamari at Bernie’s was oily and forgettable. Steve’s at Melba has far better fish.

The best fish and chips in Canberra can be found at Bernies From The Bay in Charnwood. After nearly 11 years living in Canberra our wait is finally over! We enjoyed every last morsel and will be making it our regular place to eat from now on.
Believe me, we have tried many places, even driving to Batesman Bay and Wollongong. Short of flying back to Perth to our favourite local, Bernies is by far the best we have tasted to date since being in the east and it’s also reasonably priced 🙂 The 15-20 minute drive there is worth every km.

You are probably right about it being the best in Canberra (although the place in Fyshwick would be pretty competitive).

That being said, I don’t think fish and chips are a Canberra thing. Fish and chip shops are rare and crap. Bernie’s wouldn’t rate as any better than average in QLD.

They do great burgers too.

Hawker shops seems to punch above its weight. The butcher used make magnificent sausages – probably still does.

Having come here from the land of “fish ‘n’ chips” I can reliably inform you that the the fish and chips at Hawker chippy, next door to “Rock Salt”, are the finest in the capital.

Southside has to be Naked Fish [formerly Fisho King] at Southlands.

You stop at Bruno’s for some chocs for afters, if you’re early enough.

Bernie’s also have sweet potato scallops that are just devine!

The Canberra Yacht Fish and chips isn’t worth the trip this year. It wasn’t fresh. Small serve. Still worth the drive to Kingston for “Taste on Jardine”.
