Having the Lakes Entrance fishing fleet as your neighbours means there is never a shortage of fresh seafood. Executive chef and owner Nick Mahlook has put together a menu that is all about supporting his local community but also showcasing what this amazing region has to offer. Think Nostalgic charm meets modern classics.

The story began in 2000, when a local fisherman converted the Raymond Island Ferry into a floating cafe on Middle boat harbour, Lakes Entrance. 
Nick Mahlook has repurposed the existing ferry come cafe, into an authentic seafood restaurant that showcases Lakes Entrance local produce. Sharing the wharf with the Lakes Entrance fishing fleet is pretty special, and Nick’s idea of returning to his hometown, was to bring you a culinary experience that highlights the best this region has to offer. 
Capture the stunning sunsets and salty sea air, in a laid back, casual dining offer that explores and features some of the regions finest produce and wine.

He brings with him an honest and simple approach to the menu, while honing his passion for nostalgic childhood dishes and reinventing the classics.

On the backdrop of the stunning Middle Boat Harbor, Nick’s menu at Sodafish will highlight the freshest wild and sustainable fish, oysters and shellfish and celebrate local producers for many years to come.
His vision is to celebrate good times in a casual dining offer that captures his family’s love of food and wine, all sourced from his doorstep.
