Connect with Famous Fish

The Famous Fish beginnings trace back to 1958 when Steve Costi’s dad started selling delicious, great value seafood to everyday Australian Families.

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 stores that have become somewhat of an institution in their own right. Having mastered the cooked element, Steve then took the idea one step further and created the Modern Fish and Chip store, and so Steve Costi’s Famous Fish was born.

QUALITY, SERVICE & VARIETY have been the cornerstones of Steve Costi's growth and success. 

"I absolutely love this business. I never tire of looking at the freshest seafood, talking to fisherman and passing on my enthusiasm for great seafood to anyone who cares to listen" says founder Steve Costi.

"At the end of the day, I have to feel confident that the fish & seafood I ask my customers to buy, is the same product I would be happy to take home and serve to my family".
