We had a very good fish and chip at ohope area oyster farm the day before. Then we tried this, the fish here is not bad but everything else - mussels, scallops and paua were not great. Scallops and mussels were tiny. If I return here again, I will just order the fish alone.

Well organised, do not expect even cafe standard, no toilets, wooden benches with local seagulls after your food. But very fresh fish and one of the best tasting fish and chips I have had anywhere in the world.

Went for lunch. There are a few options, but we went for fish and chips. Don't know...didn't ask either...what kind of fish, but you ask for fish and get a nice sized piece for $4. Chips, 1scoop $4, plenty for 2. Good lunch for $12 for 2 people.

This is fish & chips like they used to be!!! The fish is really fresh and they serve it on a platter so you can eat them looking out at the Tauranga Harbour. We always take visitors here for a real taste of NZ. Never disappoints.

As always the best and freshest fish and chips in town. Only draw back is that the place is so popular sometimes there is a wait at dinner time for your food but well worth it

Perfect for a casual family evening or lunchtime meal - especially in summer but really enjoyable all year round :)

Great place to sit outside with fish and chips on a tray enjoying the beautiful views of Tauranga Harbour.

Fried fish (very fresh and tasty) for $4 a piece?...not to mention the quality of the fish and the batter, etc. - hard to beat. Do expect a bit of a wait during peak hours.

Thank mhui115
