Great for fish 'n' chips, but their smoked fish is amazing. Generally there is a good selection of smoked fish available, but if it's there I'll always go for the Warehou.

Grab take away fish and chips, and eat this at the Golden Bear brewery. Especially in the summer when they have live music outside. Or wander to the wharf and watch the tide rolling in and out. Magic.

Best fish and chips we can remember. One evening we simply enjoyed the food on the wharf, the next we took it back to our apartment to enjoy even more with a glass of wine. The portions of chips are big so take care!

You can judge how well this fish and chip restaurant is doing by the fact that we were told it would be 40 minutes before our order would be ready. In fact, it only took half an hour, but would be worth the wait even if had been longer. Lovely fresh fish, beautifully cooked. Great value for money - don't... More

Great fish 'n chups, but the smoked salmon is out of this world. It is the best smoked salmon I have ever had anywhere, by a long way. Nice people running the place too.

Good fish ’n’ chips are always served in paper. There’s your sign. The Smoke Shop served up some of the best fish ’n’ chips I’ve ever had — in paper, of course. This place is fresh and serves up a variety of fish in a simple, no nonsense manner. The café is in a great little harbor that also provides... More

After getting a recommendation from a helpful clerk in the Nelson 'Great New Zealand' shop we ventured out to Mapua on our way home one night on our recent holiday. Thinking we would just stop once for a taste our palette was delightfully surprised. By the end of our vacation we had stopped 4 times for a tasty treat of... More

I've been a customer of The Smokehouse for a long time now. Their fish and chips are without a doubt the very best I have ever tasted. Every time I come home to Nelson I make a point of going over to Mapua just to order some fish and chips and sit on the wharf - it really is one... More
