Forge a path to this place!

As an Australian growing up on the east coast and beach holidaying I thought I had a pretty good idea about fish and chips. Surely the New Zealanders had some idea how to do it well. They do. Four of us drove through the night from nearby Havelock North to enjoy what we had been told was a meal... read more

I have never had a chewy bluff oyster in my life.... we ordered 18 battered oysters. Out of the 6 I ate I reckon 2 were bluffs. Huge disappointment.

When we want Fish n Chips for dinner we always visit the Westshore Fish Café. The staff and very friendly and accommodating. We either call in and wait for our order or ring it through in advance. The food is always excellent and we will continue to visit them on a regular basis.

I visited here last night right on 8pm - which is there closing time - and basically pleaded if I could order. The ladies were very accommodating and pulled everything back out to make my order, which I really appreciated. I ordered a punnet of garlic chips, hot dog and fish. My order was quick and hand delivered to me... More

This is not just a fish & chip shop. The menu is extensive. We actually ate in their restaurant. Had a quick but delicious meal of creamy blue cod. Definitely will return.

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.
