We were told by locals that the Fish Market had the best fish and chips in NZ and it really was quite good. We probably did not sample all the offerings as well as I could have, as I found the menu posted on the wall somewhat confusing. I believe that you can specify the type of fish in the... More

Love that you can choose the kinds of fish you want. Add on half a portion of fries (the portion is relatively big for an Asian). Be warned that the batter's oily so Id suggest you share it. Bring your own sauces and lemon - not unless you're okay with being charged for it.

We love coming here to buy fish n chips, take away. The fish are guaranteed to be fresh and the chips crispy! We have also bought fish fillets to take home to cook for dinner when we want to make a fish curry. Yum yum yum. Bobby's is very popular, there is always a lot of customers there so factor... More

I've dined here many many times, over the years. Generous portions always perfectly cooked, and fresh. The wet fish bar is always well stocked. Not once have I been disappointed.

Primarily a fish market selling fresh fish from "The Bay of Plenty", but also a place where you can have the day's catch served up any number of ways. We opted for the Blue Moki a local commercial fish and we were not disappointed. The batter was crisp with no hint of oiliness. The flaky fish was tasty and retained... More

Went to Tauranga with my brother and my partner. Enjoyed everything about Bobbys! I always go to Bobbys when im in Tauranga. The food was outstanding including the kinas! The location of Bobbys was amazing, pretty much sitting on the water. I will sure be coming back again!!

This is a fish market selling the freshest catch where you can order from the display and eat well for a reasonable price. The days catch is displayed attractively and fish can easily be on the menu if you have a kitchen when visiting this area of New Zealand. We purchased Dory and roe for home and tested the F&C's...

Bobby's Fresh Fish Market is wonderful and has some of the best seafood in Tauranga. If you love sea food but really don't want to dive or fish for it, then you have to go to Bobby's!
