Sweet Potato Fries Delight

Sweet potato fries were delicious as was the fish but one portion is enough for two people. The staff were very friendly and there was plenty of choice but we loved the sweet potato fries as you can guess

This fish and chips cafe is one you will come back to every time you are in town. The fish is cooked to perfection and the chips hot and crispy. there are a few tables out front or take away to the delightful waterfront park across the road

Vinnies is a great place to grab a bite. Their burgers are yummy and fish is out of the world. Both burgers and fish are probably one of the best you can find in New Zealand.

Where else can you feed 2 adults for $16. And some of the nicest fish we've had from a fish and chip shop.

Fish was ok, chips not so much, no salt, expensive, but the reason for our bad wrap is the young guy behind the counter. He thought himself a bit of a card but just came across as arrogant and extremely rude. He was so rude to the Asian family before us, then said something twice as bad to our daughter,... More
