Although we'll miss the cooked fish and chips, we're delighted that the best quality, locally-caught seafood remains.

For nearly 9 years, Tina and Eddy have sold THE best fish and chips on Kangaroo Island, and the freshest locally sourced sea food, and though the deep fryers have stopped cooking up their marvellous seafood for take-away or sit-down service, I was delighted to still be able to purchase fresh sea... read more

Located at the Caltex Fuel Station in Kingscote this Fish and Chip shop does not look very fancy, but they did have good fish and chips, along with other seafood. They also sell fresh, uncooked fish. It was a neat and clean shop, and did not smell overly fishy. It was very busy with many locals eating there or getting... More

Asked around Kingscote for a Fish and Chips place for lunch and a local recommended this shop at the Caltex Petrol Station. First impressions left A little to be desired as you wonder whether you have come to the right place but entering the shop changes that impression as it is neat and tidy and the Staff were very welcoming....

This is good and honest takeaway fish shop. they sell both raw and cooked fish and seafood. We had a fisherman basket, which was fresh and tasty, and not too expensive as well.

We went there on a Monday night and it was quite busy. We had the Fisherman's basket which was very good with fish, prawns, scollops, squid and a mountain of chips. I especially liked the scollops.

We visited here twice on a 3 night stay on Kangaroo Island and loved it each time. We particularly loved the King George Whiting so fresh and cooked just right. Staff were friendly and efficient. Great job guys.

The place stocks some nice fresh seafood, like oysters. We bought oysters few times. Even took a pack with us to Adelaide. The service was terrific. This is also a great place to have a beautiful fried seafood dinner. We ate here couple times. And I can say that we were satisfied.

Went for dinner and ordered Combo Park and a whiting. The food is ok and the combo pack is great value at only $25. If you want to eat here, you go to hurry. They are closing from 31May15 after 9 years. Due to health reason.

Came to this place because of the good reviews on TripAdviser but got huge shock with my visit today. We ordered a quite few things including grilled fish, tiger prawns and the Combo Pack. Except from the prawn, the others were not fresh. It might has a bit to do with the off peak season and the place is pretty... More

You could miss this little place if you weren't aware of it - but it's worth looking for (next to Caltex) if you like really fresh seafood in a no-frills setting. We picked up a bottle of wine from the local bottle shop as they allow BYO. A constant stream of locals while we were there reinforced our impression that... More
