Most Consistent In Plymouth

Been trying a lot of stores in Plymouth, None of the Fish & Chips was good. And Although Harborside may be a little costly BUT it has been very consistent in standards. Remembering coming here on my first date with my girlfriend, she was Asian and didn't try it before and got so hooked onto it... read more

I recently visited with some friends and have to say it did not live up to it's recommendations. The food was terrible, when I complained and asked to speak to the manager I found his attitude to be arrogant and dismissive. I will not be recommending this place and certainly will not visit again.

Just disappointing. Luke warm chips, grizzled fish and a humourless ambience. Better restaurants nearby.

Harbourside Fish & Chips in Southside Street on Plymouth's historic Barbican provide excellent fish & chips. Friendly staff and good service but a pity that the eating area is quite small although there are seats outside if the weather's fine.

i must start by saying that although i regularly review on this site i have never until now given a rating of one. I have also never given a low rating based on the actions of a staff member. I went into harbourside to buy a meal for myself and my girlfriend this afternoon. I was "served" by a girl... More

Don't think you can go wrong with fish and chips, but I approached this one with much higher expectations! The portion was small, fish didnt seem that great or warm and the service was very disappointing. Even in fast takeaway places a smile is important!

I wasn't really a fan of fish until I was persuaded to try the cod here. It was delicious and I've been back nearly every time I visit Plymouth, around 6 out of 10 times in the past year. Great location to grab a fish supper and head up to the lighthouse in the summer and sit on the Hoe... More

My wife and I frequently visit here during the summer, and even in the winter if cooking seems like a chore at the end of a long day! The fish locally sourced is "melt in your mouth" good. There's a great range of food available, coupled with indoor seating there's no excuse to not give it a go! Only complaint... More

A friend of mine raved about how good the fish & chips were from here so she invited me over to her house & got us a take away. The fish was the smallest piece of fish I've ever seen but tasted ok, the chips were soggy & not crispy at all, the best bit was the mushy peas. At... More

Spotlessly clean, attentive staff, friendly atmosphere, generous portions and oh boy what taste. We never miss eating here when in Plymouth...no chippie restaurant to beat it.
