This is a small shop, but produces good fish and other choices wih a reasonable wait. Fairly well priced and popular with the locals.

Lovely chippy in middle of Portobello serving very fresh fish with chips. Good selection of fish. I've never had fried monkfish before so tried it here.. Deelish - thanks Ric.

Unfortunately they had run out of blue cod when we went there but we had john dory which was excellent. Being a Pomme (emigrated 46 years ago), it reminded me of the good ól fish & chip shops back in London. Great feed, large servings and very tasty.

We arrived here almost as this little chippy was closing. However, despite this we were carefully guided through the range of fish by one of the two gentlemen behind the counter (being from the UK, we did not recognise some of the fish on offer). Portions were good, the fish was very fresh and nicely cooked and chips were fine.... More

Worth making the effort. You will need to check the opening hours and days, not open some days and limited hours. He had a range of fresh fish and we went for the lemon sole which was fantastic. Very friendly service and recommended the sole. A must experience for Portobello! 😎

A little shop along Portobello Road on Otago Peninsula serving a wide variety of Fish & Chip as well as some additional items to round out the menu. It was a quick in and out. We ordered one baked and one fried fish and an order of chips to split. That was more and enough for the two of us.

There was a choice of several fishes and these were all cooked fresh to order. Quality was alright but not the best we had in NZ. But worth a visit if you are in the area.

The fish, burger and chips held so much promise but were so disappointing. The burger was the worst because the bun was so saturated in water that it was a goey mush - I am guessing it must have been frozen and when they thawed it in the microwave it soaked up about 1/2 cup of water. You couldn't even... More

Lovely meal served in a lidded container. Fish was beautifully cooked, not overdone and tge chips were crisp. Tartare sauce and lemon wedges in container. I like that salt is not added and that customers can select to add salt if desired. The salad was nice fresh lettuce tomatoes etc. Great meal option.

Thank Rhona S
