“The best chips I have had for donkey's years”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Spotlessly clean fish and chip shop in convenient to the High Steet in Menai. The staff were pleasant and efficient and the chips were excellent - not soggy and not oily and were served in a container rather than plated up. Condiments are on the counter and not on tables thus ensuring that the tables and seating areas are lovely and clean at all times. The restaurant area is bright and airy and prices are in line with other fish and chip shops.

The only downside is that it was a little difficult to get in and out of the chairs as they are screwed to the floor and could not be pushed back to allow easy movement around the table - rather difficult for me as I am a little older and stiff in my movement and I had to get in and out of a small space to fetch my food from the counter when it was cooked. Not impossible though and this did not mar my general impression of this lovely fish and chip shop. I will definitely be back and would recommend to others who visit Menai.

“Take-away fish and chips”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Freshly cooked fish, mushy peas and chips - portions were generous and quality was fine. A few seats inside and it was functional but clean.

“Fair to middling . . . .”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

There are a number of really good fish and chip shops around Anglesey now - especially in Beaumaris and Benllech - but after three visits now I feel the Seawave has to up its game if it wants to compete. The service is friendly and efficient, but the food doesn't quite measure up. The chips in particular on my last visit were bitty and soggy, while the fish - though large and succulent - was also greasy, and the batter just fell away from it. As this is the only chippie in Menai Bridge, and that's where I live, I wish they'd get their act together. Maybe some local competition is what they need . . .
