We found the service here very poor - rude, unhelpful, ill-mannered staff with lots of excessively loud yelling about orders being ready and instructions to dispose of your own rubbish in the bins in the nearby park. You wonder why people who seem so annoyed at having to provide a service are in service industry! You would expect the seafood... More

We rocked up at this cute little fish chips cafe when visiting Kiama. It's very easy to find since it's the situated right across the end of the bay. I must say, the fish and chips they serve are freshest we have ever had. We could still feel the freshness in every bite . The place is situated in a... More

Saw the rating here but felt that the food is really good. We ordered the Ocean Banquet which is about 49.90 which is good for 4 people. My Daughter of 20 months love the chips. The only thing which annoy me is there plenty of sea gulls waiting to snatch your food, so you need to be really careful with... More

Top dollar for one of the worst fish and chips I have ever eaten! Plastic bag chips that were mostly scraps and absolutely swimming in oil. The fish had too much batter and oozed oil. Back that up with staff that seem to have no idea about customer service... definitely wont be back!

My 2nd visit here in a few weeks- love the fresh prawn choice. Clean. The chips are honest. Be great if the menu could include a few healthier options. No doubt it's a great location but the birds are a turn off if you have to eat in the park. Serving till late.Tourists a plenty.

In England they would call this " an upmarket chippy" we we were with my wife's 94 year old Father and he loves this stuff. We got here early and got the best table in the place right on the harbour side, you order at the counter pay and you are given a number, when it is ready she shouts... More

The behaviour of the lady serving is abominable. She made me feel like I was not welcome and such a burden. The fish was absolutely atrocious. It was very watery inside which was sickening.

Was treated VERY rudely by the lady at this fish and chip shop in front of my young children. The food is very average for the price you pay. There are many nice places to eat in Kiama. Please save yourself a nasty experience and try somewhere else.

Ate here even though most T.A. reviewers advised against it but mainly because we were staying in a hotel close by and it was convenient. The food itself was quite good, nothing spectacular but not terrible. The service however was where this place lets itself down. What is the owner thinking or don't they read their reviews?? They need to... More

Nothing to say except the food was good but the staff and especially the woman serving was so rude to ALL customers. She needs to learn some manners.
