We had cod, scampi, calamari, and chips. All were excellent, nicely served in thick cardboard trays. Came with really nice home made tartare sauce. Chips were delicious. Staff really friendly, premises really clean.

Had some lovely chips here which were freshly prepared and cooked to perfection! Didn't try the fish on this occasion but definitely want to go back again, if the fish is anything like the chips I'm sure it will be delicious. They also do meals for children which are generous portions and come in their own little box, but they don't give them any sauce like the adult portion which is a shame, children like to dip their chips too!
They let you do your own salt & vinegar which is a nice touch so you can control how much you have.
Looking forward to a return visit :)

One of my clients recommended the Lime Crab - she said they were really good and coming from her that was recommendation enough for us to try. We have been living in Wales for the last 3 years, in the middle of nowhere and longing to find a decent chippie. After an initial disaster or three we kind of gave up and then went to the Lime Crab tonight. Clean; well run by young people; positive attitudes and enthusiastic service. Cost - more than normal but really well worth it. Thoroughly recommend this new venture and will definitely return for more on the rather good menu.

We were really undecided about what we wanted to eat, so sat outside a pub in New Quay hoping inspiration would find us, and it did! We saw several people walk past with the distinctive Lime Crab boxes (a stroke of marketing genius) so we thought we'd check it out. The staff were friendly and the food was cooked fresh to order (we were even offered the extra chips that they'd cooked!). This chips were so crispy (unusual for chip shop chips), and the whitebait that were on special were lovely with their homemade tartar sauce. We were really, really impressed with the quality of the food and would definitely go back!

First of all ignore any previous criticism of this outstanding fish and chip bar - this is perhaps the best Fish and Chip shop (from personal experience) in Wales if not the UK!

If you are on holiday or a local - go down and enjoy home made batter as it should be with the freshest fish and just right golden crispy chips served with homemade tartar sauce all wrapped up in a neat folding box

My wife had two home made fishcakes that were just delicious (I just had to sample them!) and I had large haddock and chips which we thoroughly enjoyed while looking across the diamond harbour town that is called New Quay (A bit like St Ives but better since it is in Wales and you don't get smelly vans squeezed down tightly packed streets trying to crush the pedestrians)

Back to reality - The Lime Crab is a joy and tastefully decorated and finished in high quality decor that would not look out of place in an expensive hotel - just go there and see what I mean!
