“The only place to go for "proper" Fish and Chips in Harwich”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We have lives in Harwich for Years and have eaten from all of the fish and chip shops in the town. But there is now only 1 place we would ever go.

Pieseas totally outdoes anything that any if the others do. The chips are fantastic and the fish is always fresh and meaty with crispy batter every time. It's also refreshing to find somewhere that still cooks chips the traditional way, and not in some foul tasting, greasy vegetable oil.

The Owners are lovely people and go out of their way to make sure you get the best food for a fair price. Their recent additions to the menu like chips will Chilli and cheese allow you to have a far wider choice of food, without compromising on quality.

Ok so you may have to wait a little while for your order, but the food is cooked fresh right in front of you, having been plucked from the sea locally.

I especially recommend the skate, which always has the most beautiful succulent meat, which you just don't get in any if the other chip shops in town.

I can only finish by recommending that if you want the perfect fish, crispy batter and tasty chips, get yourselves down to Pieseas, and sit back along the quayside and enjoy the beautiful traditional taste of the glorious food they will give you, then you too will never go anywhere else for fish and chips again.

“Totally gone downhill over the last couple of years”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Always used to enjoy food from this takeaway but over the last couple of years it would seem to have gone downhill. Last time we had soggy cod & dried up chips - won't be going back there again as there are other takeaways in Harwich that offer much nicer food.

Food superb, staff excellent, queuing arrangements are a bit chaotic. Prices are very reasonable considering that range and quality of the food.
