Best fresh fish ever. Batter light and crispy. You may have a bit of a wait but truly worth it, on a sunny day great enjoy the scenery. If its wet still great sit under canopy or take brolli.

More than you can eat...great advice from the friendly staff, meals on time ie not a long wait but definitely worth the wait! awesome setting, relaxing family friendly atmosphere.. you can find Bobby sitting out with the customers from time to time, chatting away, adding to the friendliness of the place.NO1!

This is the best fish and chip shop I've come across. So good, be prepared to wait a while in a queue for your food but it's worth the wait!

A favourite place to go for fish and chips, food always well cooked but be prepared for a bit of a wait as the queues are often long. Well worth the wait though...:)

The idea of fish and chips by the harbor sounded nice by it was disappointing. The food was greasy and too much batter. It has always been busy with ques so you wait for an age to get below par fish and chip. i went a second time to give them the benefit of the doubt but again was disappointed.

Had friends down from Auckland so we checked out the hairy Mcclary sculptures and then had lunch at Bobby's. Kids all had sausages. My friend a spring roll and me the fish. As always the chips and fish were amazing. Keep up the amazing work

Despite the queues because the place is so popular, the freshness of the fish is worth the wait. Eat alfresco right by the water!
