Had lunch with the family here after some locals recommended the place. Hands down, best fish and chips I've ever eaten! The fish, calamari and chips were all seasoned, it was delicious mate. I would be a regular customer if I lived in Melbourne :)

Was wondering up Lygon Street trying to decide on an Italian restaurant (being hassled by restraunteers 'my mama makes the pasta' and 'I give you free wine!' trying to secure our business). After a long walk my partner says to me, 'I actually really just feel like that fish and chip shop back there'. Sounds good to me! Much to... More

Great fish and chippery as they call themselves. Ask for the grilled fish as then you can really appreciate how fresh it is. Nice place to relax on Lygon Street and watch the world passing as you read the paper and enjoy your fish and chips!

Drove 23km's to get there 'cause if it's fish n chips you want, then this is it, freshly prepared, nice n informal but equally suitable for an evening out. Go on try it..

There's not a lot one can say about fish and chips really but this is a great little spot The fish of the day, Blue Grenadier was light and tasty, with a lovely beer batter. I'd definitely go back. Cheap and cheerful too!

First of all the fish and chips would be the best I have ever had - thus far. I regularly buy the fisherman's basket (around $10), which comes with two perfectly cooked pieces of fish and the most cruchy and perfectly seasoned chips you could ever ask for. All their fish and ingredients are freshly sourced, offering a large variety... More

Good selection of fish cooked well. Not really a sit down sort of place, but good outdoor eating available.

We had a wonderful summer lunch outdoors eating sublime fish and chips and fish tacos. All the fish looked so fresh. A great clean, genuine feeling about this fish and chippery.

We were staying nearby and got one of the family packs which came with a great assortment of different items. Some of the food was greasy, but the fish was really tasty, as were the chips. Service was friendly as well. Not the best fish and chips I have had, but still tasty.
