“good fish and chips but a bit pricey.”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Quick and efficent service, but a bit pricey.

16.80 for a piece of fried flake and chips is almost double than what I pay in Melbourne.

cooked well and would go back again if staying in Lorne.

“Horrible fish and chippery: overpriced, rude service, bad food”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Really regret stopping at this fish and chippery on the main street in Lorne. The food was incredibly overpriced and not that tasty: bad batter and oversalted chips. But "salty" refers to the staff, who was not only incredibly unhelpful and dismissive, but also rude (and tried to deny a request for cutlery, telling me to use my fingers instead! What the heck?!).

I would not recommend this place to my enemies. Stay away.

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

- Excellent fish & chips. Had the seafood platter for 2. The scallops & prawns were exquisitely fresh. Loved the batter which was crispy & not too oily
- Service was friendly. No utensils are provided so be prepared to eat with your fingers!
- Slightly pricey but worth the splurge
- Spartan interior but clean & tidy

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Fish and chips were good but quite expensive - over $8 for a piece of flake! It could get very pricey for families.
The staff were a little abrupt.
The shop is clean and located conveniently in the main street across from the main beach.
Would recommend if expense is not an issue.
