The last time we were here, we raved, so nearly a year later, time to see if its still the best. This time we settled on lunch and had the restaurant to ourselves ( the takeout was busy as) in contrast to last time where we came at night and had to wait for a meal. I ordered the poached... More

This fish and chip shop is the furthest away from where we live in Napier, but we will drive there rather to get the best fish and chips in the bay, every time! The service is always friendly. Because of the amount of people always getting their meal there, it pays to order by phone and come when it's ready... More

My dad and I are staying in Napier for one night and we just had dinner at Westshore cafe/restaurant. It is hands down the best fish and chips I've ever had, would highly recommend. Very comfortable and homely environment, like eating in your own front room. We both had the blue cod and chips and coleslaw. All was delicious!! If... More

We had great fish & chips here. You can choose whether you want a small, regular or large serving of fish - the regular is bigger than the average fish & chip shop serving and the large is enormous. Delicious fish.

We went to Westshore Fish Cafe on 16th March 2014 because our motel owner recommended it and he was absolutely right. The cafe is licensed or byo, food is great, plenty of locals eat there because the owner and his wife are passionate about food and service. Very unpretentious and a little off the beaten track. But go find it... More

I am from the North of England and we know our fish and chips! where I'm from, growing up fish and chips were the only fast food available. We have tried fish and chips from every place in Napier and this place is by far the best, to be honest it is the last place we tried as it is... More

Try the blue cod, lovely fish in a thin batter, chips were fresh and crispy. Cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato sauce , all good value and well worth it!
