Never disappoints.

Whenever I visit friends in Hastings I always try to build in a trip to the takeaway at the Blue Dolphin. Once again this weekend I had delicious fresh fish and chips. I would definitely recommend as the "plaice" to go for a seaside treat!

... other restaurants. Even this humble seaside fish and chip restaurant can create great tasting, crunchy, fish n chips with nicely served pickles and mushy peas, a mug of great tasting tea and with what I can honestly say was the best service I have had in any restaurant for a very long time. All this for around £8 a... More

Went here because the slightly more highly rated Maggie's was closed (winter opening hours). Service from the young female server was warm, friendly and efficient. The place has a proper old seaside feel about it. Food however was disappointing. Scampi wasn't as good as it should be so close to the sea... and batter wasn't great. Portion size was generous...

Looked up the best Fish and Chip shops in Hastings and this was one of top ones so we gave it a go and weren't disappointed! There wasn't a great deal of people in there but the service was great and very fast and the food was very nice. Would recommend highly!

Under new management, Blue Dolphin still has delicious food. However I am disappointed that the previous waitresses were not present at my recent visit, instead replaced with staff that were not as friendly or as eager to help. The whole kitchen now seems to look like a social club with the amount staff present. If you do visit Blue Dolphin... More

Heard this place was good and other places were really busy or closed, so we went here. Got takeaway. Minimal choice on the menu, which initially dissapointed me. I wasn't fussed by chips I got. Wish I went elsewhere. We felt the food was average. Not great service either.

When I walked into the takeaway I was stuffed into a crowded room. This business is quiet popular so there's a lot of footfall. This mean the cramped space then turns claustrophobic as it's such a small waiting room. The staff generally looked like they hated life and didn't give a smile whatsoever! I was hardly welcomed. However for the... More
