Very good fish and chips

We had the diet fish and chips as we had a meal booked for the evening and the fish although not large( after all it was diet) was really crisp and fresh the chips were crisp too. The salad was a bit of a let down. Two pieces of tomato and cucumber in a plastic box covered with rocket and... read more

The queue was long, staff behind the till was quick in taking orders and payments but food took too long to serve. I ordered fish and chips. The taste was not bad but I would say it is rather average.

The best fish and chips in town and the mushy peas are great. Have eaten here now more times than I care to admit and the quality is very consistent. Absolutely love this place.

Best fish & chips I have had in years. There was no grease at all, the fish was beautifully battered and not soggy on the bottom like you get in most fish and chip shops. If in Plymouth then I recommend this place for fish & chips. Well done Harbourside

Visited with family. 14 year old daughter with eating problems requested a child's meal and was asked by staff how old she was. When she said she was 14 years old she was told she was too old for a child's meal??? Is the she or the appetite they are feeding? Overall ok meal but tainted by this ridiculous rule!

Yet again Harbourside delivers a spot on meal! Even my father in law swears by this place & he lives in Yorkshire! Never greasy, chips are always lightly crisped on the outside, the fish is completely bone free with big succulent flakes of fish well cooked & never soggy! The battered sausages the kids like are again cooked well &... More

Haddock and chips plus mushy peas. All cooked fresh and great service. Our favourite chip shop in Plymouth and right on the front.

Although very nice the fish portion is overpriced for what you pay for it .Still it is a good chippy and I would go back but won't be paying that much for such a small bit of fish again .

This has to be one of the best fish and chip shops around and I really wish they would open one in Somerset mind you with the taste of the food and the amazing polite helpful service I would be in here all the time!! Going to have to make a trip more often!!
