Steve Costi’s Famous Fish opened their doors in Geelong last weekend, and Melbourne Explorer went along for opening night to check it out.
The Famous Fish tradition began in 1958, when Steve Costi’s dad started selling seafood and Steve continued the family tradition by operating the Costi retail stores in the seafood industry from the early 80’s following the same business model and format that his dad established for much of this time. Over time he saw the opportunity for the traditional fresh seafood stores to start incorporating a cooked element into their business.
The simple concept of synergy then saw Steve successfully integrate the two to create some outstanding individual stores which have become somewhat of an institution in their own right.
What I enjoyed the most was the fish ‘n chips weren’t greasy and the chips were covered in Steve’s secret seasoning. If you are in the area, or feel like a weekend drive, this place is worth a try.
