Great fish and chips with above average in every way except no EFTPOS available. Price is above average as is the quality of the food. Almost everything is fresh daily Kangaroo Island produce and they close when sold out. Go for an early lunch or miss out as they may be closed.

The blurb on the wall of this Kangaroo Island eatery states 'if they gave Michelin stars for fish and chips, FISH of Penneshaw would earn a good three!' Well clearly I was at the wrong place because the meal we had was ordinary to say the least. OK, good chips I'll give them that but the batter on the ridiculously... More

Salt and pepper squid had a peanut type sauce over it which I thought was rather odd. I was not too impressed with the taste at all and was a bit confused if there was a mistake in the order. There needs to be a write up on the menu board about what they are serving to avoid confusion. The... More

Fresh fish with the best batter thus far! Had many F&C in Adelaide and on the way towards Melbourne, and this is still the best and unforgettable, though slightly more expensive

After a one day tour of Kangaroo Island we had a short time to get some dinner before catching the ferry. The fish and chips were yummy but a bit expensive and you needed your credit card if you wanted whiting.

Wonderful location, this small place offers the best fish and chips i've ever tasted! Too bad we arrived late and I could not taste all of the dishes!

Stopped over for a quick Fish and Chips, after an exhausting day tour. The place is so popular that u have to wait for upto 10 mins to pick up your meal. The lady at the counter warns u not to whine about the delay. The fish (Hake) was amazing and filling.

We were recommended to this fish and chip shop as reputed to be quick and tasty. What a let down. There was no King George whiting so we had a the special of battered flathead and chips for $24. At that price we shared 1 serve. Service was no not friendly but was quick. No doubt food is prepared to... More
