Chips are served in a cardboard box, all very professional. Good service and fish is sourced from local boats. There is a map on the wall with pins that shows where the fish being cooked each day is sourced from. Would highly recommend

Been to this place twice, first time I had cod and chips but the meal was very average. I went back a second time months later purely because this place has a good reputation and I was hoping that the first time I went was just a one off, of it being below par but the second time was even... More

This fish and chip shop is simply the best at the Barbican in Plymouth. With such a range of restaurants offering such a wide variety of food, I don't think you can be the friendly staff, and the excellent fish here. Well worth a visit even a second, third or many many more you won't be disapointed

We enjoyed perfect fish and chips with our grandsons as an end of term treat. The fish was perfect with a very light batter, the best we have experienced. The cafe was full so we sat at the pavement tables which was very pleasant. We had to keep our eyes peeled for hungry seagulls which the boys thought was amusing.... More

Despite Harbourside always being very busy, you never have to wait too long for your food to be cooked, and when it is, its absolutely gorgeous! Lovely to sit outside on a warm summer's evening and eat your fish & chips. Will be back there in a week's time so will definitely be having some!

Seems very popular and on visit everything being cooked fresh. Large cod good, chips hot and very reasonable even when eating in the attached " restaurant area" would recommend as a take away or for quick and easy eating in
