For decades St Kilda Beach, Melbourne’s most famous and most frequently visited beach, hasn’t had a fish and chippery. Now Paper Fish, a beachside fish and chip shop, serves high quality fresh fish and chips and other beach bites such as salads, calamari and fritto misto is a giant paper cone.

Paper Fish‘s location can’t be beaten. After a frolic on the beach Baby 2.0 cycles directly off the St Kilda boardwalk for our lunch.

Grab a wooden block stool under the palm trees or take your fish and chips to the beach.

The panoramic view of Port Phillip Bay is stunning, with a soundtrack of chortling seagulls and swishing of bike tyres on the path.

They are aiming to be a healthier alternative to your traditional fish and ships which means you can choose to have your (sustainable) fish grilled or in a light tempura batter.

I highly recommend the grilled blue grenadier, so fresh and flaky, served in a cute recyclable box with a fish design.You can also go off-piste with a crunchy coconut prawn taco or soft-shelled crab in a milk bun.

I found the chips a little soggy, so I hope that they are able to up the crunch factor a bit more as the kitchen settles in. Baby 2.0 still devoured a heap of them!

Paper Fish is already very popular in its first weeks so if you’re not up for queuing then Paper Fish is launching an ordering app. Have your food delivered to your spot on the beach! 


HOT Tips:

  • pram access, just walk straight off the beach/boardwalk;
  • order for eat-in or takeaway;
  • public toilets nearby;
  • take a bike or scooter and sand play equipment; and
  • paid street parking.
