Great Fish and Chips

Great place for inexpensive fish and chips. My favorite is Parrot Fish. They are all tasty but it is the best. The only problem is that you are at the mercy of the fishermen. You get what they catch and some days it wasn't anything. Nice friendly place near the beach.

This is a great place, for a casual meal, the people that own it are amazing even went into Aitutaki to get us the best steaks, didnt ask for it they just did it when we ordered. When we got the meal it was great.

Generous portions of fish and chips with salad were served. We were the only guests at the time and they quickly made our lunch for us. It's very informal and picnic tables are in the dining area for you to sit at. Very casual! Warm and friendly couple who run the business.

We've been to Puffys before so we weren't surprised to get good fish and chips in a really nice casual atmosphere looking across the l;agoon, in our case just in time to see the sunset while chatting with some other visitors. We went again a couple of nights later and again had a good meal for twenty dollar each. Better... More

We were staying just a short walk from Puffy's. The first night we shared a fish and chips and it was lovely. Absolutely no frills, in fact you feel like they are doing you a favour allowing you to eat there! We went back a few days later and they had no fish ... and no chips! We had nowhere... More
