The fish and chips were gorgeous, not greasy or fatty at all. The tartare sauce was delicious! I would even say they best rick steins! Staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Definitely recommend!! 👍👍👍

Visited this fish and chip shop a few days ago, during my visit the shop was very busy. The food was fresh and very tasty, customer service was excellent, all members of staff were very helpful and friendly. Also the shop was very clean and tidy. Would highly recommend this fish n chip shop.

We attend this traditional chip shop on regular basis due to excellent fish and chips. But the do frequently forget the additional extras we order . Like tartar sauce or cheese on the chips. Even agreeing to salt and vinegar on the fish and chips. They are busy in there so mistakes do happen. But it's not rocket science to... More

So myself and my family decided to have a change of fish and chips at the harbourside. Award winning apparently, food is cooked well and presented well. The place is clean and service is with a smile however the fish could be better. Food is cooked to order but when ordering a large fish and you get your food and... More

We are very sorry you weren't satisfied with the size of your fish at Harbourside. Each piece of fish is weighed before cooking to ensure consistency however we would be happy to refund you the cost of your meal if you didn't find the large portion substantial enough. We do a "Jumbo" Cod which you may prefer on your next... More

Went to the harbourside with family, was busy when we arrived, but managed to find a table, a board tells you where the fish was caught and even what variety of potato used for the chips, fish was fresh, batter nice and crisp, however I was charged 60p for a pot of tartare sauce, also a slice of lemon would...

Not saying it's horrible just saying it could be a little better for what you pay, if next door was packed then I'd come here but I'd honestly choose next door over any chip shop on the barbican anyday!

We wanted a fish-n-chip restaurant to finish our time in Plymouth, so I hunted on TripAdvisor and other sites, and decided that this place got the vote. But be warned - this is not a place to sit and eat. Sure, they have a handful of tables, but you order over the counter and simply eat the takeaway on a... More

Thank you for your Tripadvisor review. We are glad you found the quality of our Fish and Chips satisfactory. Unfortunately as a business we don't have any control over which category we are placed in on Tripadvisor and quite rightly we aren't a "proper" restaurant. We are predominantly a takeaway however we do provide the customer a few seats to... More

Second time we have had fish and chips here and both times have been excellent. The fish really is lovely and much better than their competitors on the Barbican. Can't fault it.

This in my opinion is the best fish & chip shop in Plymouth. Always a queue which is a good sign. Visited many times never disappointed. We make it a stop off whenever we have friends or family visiting. Highly recommended that's why I give this 5 stars.
