“The best fish and chips in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

This is the best fish and chips in the area. We have been visiting for over 10 years and now come from out of town because it is so good. The batter is crisp and dry and the fish is firm and tasty. The staff look after you very well and are flexible to special requests.

“Take Away so good we keep coming back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

We had a large take away order (over 20 people) in the autumn, it was fantastic so the next time we were organizing an event we went back and the food was just as good. We simply phoned our order and then collected. Everything was as ordered, really well cooked and hot! We shall be coming back again!

“I never knew you could get fish that big SUPERB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

I'm very fussy with my fish and I must say that was one of the best I've had perfectly battered and to top it of it was presented by very helpful and friendly staff if you go to Falmouth this is a must stop off. (Oh and small alcohol beverage after was just the ticket) :)

“Best Fish and Chips shop in Cornwall!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Best place for fish and chips in the whole of Cornwall!
Outstanding food quality and very friendly service.
Even on a very busy evening the proprietress stays very calm, sees everything and acts like a captain of a ship!
We, Wendy, Robert, Gerda, Jan, Gerrie, and Wim highly recommend this excellent restaurant.

“Mr Dean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013 via mobile

I was working away in business when I came across this absolutely fantastic fish and Chip restaurant and takeaway.
The staff were very helpful and very polite, nothing was too much trouble for any of them.
The size and quality of the portions served were value for money.
The fish was done to perfection not greasy or soggy. The chips were perfect.
You need to try this plaice (lol) you won't be disappointed.
