About Us

Sydney Fresh Seafood is an Australian family owned business with fresh retail stores in Wetherill Park, Manly, Potts Point and Drummoyne. Owned and operated by the Papacosta Family since 1976, Andrea and her children Paul and Veronica work hard every single day to bring the freshest and best seafood to your family dinner table.

The Papacosta family are of Greek Cypriot heritage and are always looking to combine their love of Australian seafood with their love for the Mediterranean way of life.


Andrea opened the doors to her first seafood store in Penrith Plaza at the base of the Blue Mountains in 1976. Known then as Penrith Seafoods, her store went from strength to strength through her hard work and dedication. Having the freshest seafood definitely helped. Penrith Seafoods in Penrith had a huge reputation for quality and service so in 2002 Andrea decided to expand the business and chose Wetherill Park as her next location.

With Paul and Veronica now working in the business, Andrea was able to continue on and open stores in Manly, Potts Point and Drummoyne, bringing the best and freshest seafood to family tables across Sydney.
