Noosaville's best fish and chips?

'You have to go to that place,' the taxi driver said, pointing out the fish and chip shop on the side of the road. 'It's the best in town.'

'The best in town.' That was what we heard all over the place about Seafood ConXion. The best fish and chips in town: the best fish in town, period. We had to give it a try.

THe chips and potato cake.

The signs were good. Every time we passed Seafood ConXion there were a few people sitting at its outside tables – a good sign for a place that was primarily takeaway. The smells were good, too, none of the ultra-fishy smell which is the hallmark of terrible fish and chips everywhere.

The night we tried our luck looked to be particularly busy, but was just a regular Thursday for Seafood ConXion. We waited in line, debating what we would choose before it was our turn.

'What would you like?'

In the end, it was what each of us always ordered in such places. Snapper, chips, potato cakes, more chips. Not exactly gourmet, but comfort food.

Our order was delivered to our table still sizzling with oil. We picked at chips and burned our fingers with eagerness.

Reviewing fish as a non fish-eater is always a hazardous task. For my part, my potato cakes were superb. Fluffy batter encasing a tender slip of potato, exactly how I like it. The batter wasn't too greasy, either, and hadn't been in the pan long enough to absorb too much oil.

According to my companion, the fish was acceptable, although not meeting the expectations that had risen due to people raving all over town.

The chips were... normal. Quite nice chips, but nothing out of the ordinary.

The verdict? Perhaps somewhere there exists that mythical fish and chip shop that will bring together the dinners of childhood with the sophisticated palate of adulthood. It wasn't in Noosaville. Seafood ConXion may well be the best in town, but keep your expectations grounded in reality: it's just fish and chips.
