Many of the seafood restaurants in Collingwood have four base options:
1. White wine sauce
2. White cream sauce (milk-based)
4. Olive oil, garlic, and zesty lemon
The white wine sauce is usually mixed with butter and garlic to create a wholesome, palate-cleansing experience. Milk-based cream sauces can be tossed with mushrooms or special seafood like mussels and scallops. Add in perfectly al-dente pasta, and you get an idea of what seafood restaurants near Collingwood have to offer. Grilled fish usually take the olive oil, garlic, and zesty lemon route. Deep-fried fish and chips is a staple for Aussies, and the places that do it nail both quality and variety; so many different options are available.

One note – you may want to expand your search into North Fitzroy; the two neighborhoods border each other, and a bunch of great options can be found a street or two over from Collingwood’s main drag!
Garlic and Old Bay Butter Mussels, Clam, and Crab
The seafood crab shacks in Collingwood offer a class: varieties of seafood (your preference) tossed in garlic and old bay butter. They are generous with both, providing your seafood a rich marinade as you bite into every delicious bit. Our personal favorite combo is the mussels with crab, but make it a day and try a new crustacean.
A really unique part of the seafood restaurants in Collingwood is they sell wholesale. The same seafood fishermen sell to restaurants you can pick up to cook at home. One of the higher quality options available is the large octopus, which can be fried into calamari.

Smoked River Trout
Another unique option, this dish is for the recreational anglers out there in Melbourne. Smoked to perfection with chili sauces, garlic, butter, and more, smoked river trout can be bought wholesale – caught in the Victorian Alps and shipped right to Melbourne Seafood Markets!
It is a time of change for the Melbourne fishing industry. Commercial fishing has been banned in Port Phillip Bay, but the upside is the plentiful amount of recreational angling now available!
