Fresh fish and seafood might not be the first thing you had in mind when it comes to dining in the heart of Central Otago, but Albert Town Fish Co has ensured you don’t have to look very far if that’s indeed what you fancy. The nautical themed restaurant is a clever addition to the little town that sits just out of Wanaka, and by the looks of the hungry people filing through the doors, it’s fast becoming a very popular addition too. With fishing nets draped over booths, and acting as creative lampshades, a sailboat as a garden box out front, and a fish tank in situ, there’s no doubt you’ve made it to fish and chip town here.

You’d be silly to think kaimoana is the only thing on the menu here though, if fish doesn’t take your fancy how about some casareccia pasta, ribeye steak, beef cheeks or something from the burger menu? Otherwise pick from the starters menu, deep fried camembert and chicken liver parfait to name a few. A big spirit, beer and wine selection means there’s plenty of opportunity to wash your meal down with something tasty, and with a choice of four sweet things on the menu, we just hope you are turning up hungry.

If dining in ain’t your thing, then the sister shop just next door is specifically for takeaways. Offering a more condensed version of the menu, check out the takeaway spot for fresh fish, burgers or ‘odds and sods’, plus there’s even the option to sit back with a cold one while you wait on your order. For the real Kiwi experience there’s also ice creams in the cone and milkshakes to go.
