Tasmanian Coastal Seafoods: Great Fish and Chips

Tasmanian Coastal Seafoods Bicheno – Introduction

We believe that this venue has been sold to new owners and therefore we have not been able to try the food here yet under the new regime. We will try to get to Bicheno as soon as possible.

Tasmanian Coastal Seafoods in Bicheno is one of the most beguiling places to eat fresh fish and chips in Tasmania. All the fish is fresh and you can choose the piece you would like them to cook. You can even gorge on a freshly cooked crayfish!

This venue used to be at the iconic “Gulch”, however after the business was sold recently, it has moved into “town” and is now located in Burgess Street.

This is a remarkable place as fresh fish is very hard to find in Tasmania. Most of the catch is sent straight to the wholesalers in Melbourne where it may then be sent back to shops in Tasmania!

Some of the boats that do supply places directly usually freeze the fish when it is caught. It is rare to find a place where they catch the fish and sell it fresh such as here.

We have seen many different species of fish on sale here including perch, blue morwong, flathead, boarfish, bastard trumpeter, leatherjacket and cod.

Fish and chips at The Gulch

We love sitting on the terrace in front of the tiny work area watching the birds soaring over the granite outcrops and the fishing boats bobbing and swaying in the protected waters of the Gulch.
