Great food, and the beer selection is worth walking for

As many others have said - great food, great friendly service and super craft beer selection on tap in an old hotel. Not for those looking for linen table cloths, but fresh great food. Go with an appetite and don't order a large portion unless you are a lumberjack!

Our B & B host suggested we check out Westshore if we wanted fish and chips and we weren't disappointed. The portions of fish were large - too much for the 2 of us though we finished the lot - and the chips were some of the best we've had. I'm not a big chip fan but even I enjoyed... More

Great quality fish and chips, better variety of fish than what we're used to in Wellington. Came highly recommended and did not disappoint.

We have tried most of the chip shops in Napier & this place has the most consistently good fish & chips. You can get the fish battered or crumbled & they offer a good selection of other food. The downside is that there is usually a queue so pre order by telephone if you can.

We enjoyed our dinner here. We met some friendly locals and enjoyed dining in this neighborhood place. The food was very good and a good value! Service was quick and friendly.

This is a place that sells quality fish and chips, which are well cooked and presented. They have a BYO policy (but I think that might be common in NZ). The prices are very reasonable, and the staff helpful and efficient.

We went here especially and it was worth the drive from Napier central. Very tasty fresh fish. Not the cheapest but well worth it. We took ours to the beach a block away and sat in the park with it. Recommended

Quite a long queue but this speaks for the quality of the food! Enjoyed lovely Hoki, chips and even managed to get some mushy peas! Food was freshly cooked and very tasty!
