Fish And chips

I had forgotten what good fish and chips had tasted like until I ate at Vinnies. It was spot on and the older, balding gentleman that served us was very charming and knowledgeable. I will be back.

Grabbed some take away for dinner, the "catch" of fried fish, chips, fried mussel and scallop. Enjoyed the fish as the batter was very crispy. The rest was fine, average; perhaps bit too much for dinner but really no complaints. Definitely a good value; I would stick with just the fried fish next time

The food was delicious. We got a big piece of Hoki and Snapper with some golden chips on top for a great price! The brown haired girl was very friendly and got our food out very quickly! Definitely a must go when in the Bay of Islands!

The food was delicious and great value for the price. The burgers were my favorite. Vinnie has a quirky personality and loves his customers!!

This became our go-to breakfast spot as it was affordable, convenient and accommodating to our requests. If you're on a budget and want consistency then this is the place for breakfast.

I had a Hawaiian burger and chips and it was so tasty! So much in the burger and the chips were crispy, I would definitely reccommend!

Fish was crispy but flavourless. The fish used was not one we were familiar with. We liked the kumara chips.

Not sure if these guys would survive if relying on repeat customers. very casual toward customers and some food seemed old and dry.

An excellent location for an early breakfast, water view, outdoor seating with pleasant staff and very good value for money.

We ordered fish and chips to eat on the beach and they were fish and delicious. The batter on the fish and hot dogs was crispy. The fish was fresh and a generous size. We also ordered scallops and mussels but the fish was way better. We only had to wait about 30mins for our takeaways. A good takeaway meal... More
