This is quite truly my favourite fish and chip place in the whole world. Now that I no longer live in Dunedin, I find myself lunching at the Best Cafe straight from the plane when I visit. I did so this June, and it did not disappoint.
The menu is the usual basic, un-gourmet-ed, fish and chip shop offerings - fish, scallops, oysters, etc. but done fantastically. I usually consider cooking Bluff oysters an abomination, but at the Best Cafe I ordered them battered and fried and loved them. The chips are hand-cut, the batter crisp and light, the fish and seafood tender and perfectly cooked.
This is not exactly a healthy meal, and the decor is functional, but the food is worth it. They do takeaways, but for maximum freshness you want to eat in the restaurant.
