Excellent service, and as always delicious food. We had burgers and the fish special of the day which was Tarakihi and chips and both were enjoyed immensely

Awesome fish & chips. Freshest fish ever. The burgers are beautiful and all of the other foods looked great. The lady that was staffing the shop at the time was really friendly & helpful. It was a beautiful lunch.

We stopped in Russell on the way back from a slightly choppy Fullers tour so wanted to fill our tummies with some good fish and chips. This place is perfectly located and had friendly service, a good range of fish and burger options, and of course the standard size of chips was traditionally huge and had to be partially left...

I had takeaways for lunch and the curried prawns were fantastic. The scallops beautiful and the chips sublime.

Food is freshly made to order and portions are generous.Moderately priced, we can buy supper for our family of 3 adults for $43.We often have the take away option as we sit on the shore of the bay and watch all the activities on the wharf and water .Lovely! Highly recommended

Today we enjoyed the best fish & chips we've ever had. Cooked superbly the fish was battered & chips crispy. For $10 p/p it was the best prices lunch in town. The service was exceptional! You won't do better!
