Reviewed 31 July 2013

We regularly visit devon and cornwall and are fond lovers of hanbury's, rick stein's and squires who deliver first class customer service and high quality food. We were excited to discover The Rockfish Dartmouth believing its mission statement and thinking that this to would deliver the high quality overall experience that we expect.
To our huge disappointment we had a very poor experience. The takeaway shop seemed to be busy however this was due to a very ineffective staff. The atmosphere was very heated amongst the staff and this had a knock-on effect to the customer experience. The boy serving had an abrupt manor and the fish was was very fishy and so disappointing. We will not be visiting here again and we are totally disgusted with the whole experience!

As we arrived by ferry we decided to park up and try our luck at another celebrity chef fronted venture. Having only read a few days ago that Mitch tonks raves about the local crab I decided to give it a try. Placed order and chatted to the server who was very nice he put the order through and all was ok. Mid way through the conversation the chef who was asked to make the sandwhich shouted over that he wanted to do the dishes so could the server make it !! He apologised and went off to make the order up, within two minutes he approached to say that they have forgot to take the crab out last night so unfortunately it's not ready to serve now ! The server was very pleasant however due to the fact that the chef would rather wash up than cook we left. It's a shame that the shop is decked out in books to buy yet the actuall product u want and the reason for going in is not available. So where did we end up ! M&s foods to pick up a pick nick there. Such a shame that some places promise lots yet live up to to very little. Just to say though the guy serving did all he could and was very apologetic.

Very good chip shop with food cooked to order and friendly staff.
Definitely worth a visit but if you eat the chips by the harbour watch out for the seagulls we did see someone lose their tea.

This is almost the quintisencial English Chippy we bought our Fish and Chips then walked to Bayards Cove and ate them with a pint from the local pub and watched the world go by. Very clean reasonably priced and good food.

This was the second time we had visited the Rockfish takeaway, although it was very good the fish was not as good as it was last time, it seemed to have been done in a bit of a hurry with the batter not covering all of the fish, but as I said it was still very good, my daughter had the special Cod goujons that seemed very good value for money
