Excellent fish and chips

The fisherman's basket is very good and reasonably priced for a fish of the day, tartare sauce, 2 scollops, 2 calamari rings, and 2 prawns plus chips. The calamari has a nice tasty coating, the prawns were a good size and cooked perfectly. The fish of the day was fresh and cooked well, the scollops... read more

We ordered calamari salads as well as the good ole standard 'fish and chips'. The food is of a very good quality, reasonably priced (for Barwon) and it's a great location. Service was quite slow, but given the time of year this can be expected.

Having fish and chips at the beach is a tradition in our family, but these were disappointing. The chips were good, but my piece of fish tasted of ammonia and was inedible. For what they charged it should have been first rate.

We had a wonderful lunch here on a perfect summers day. Fish and chips just like you expect- crisp chips, fresh delicious fish and friendly staff. Reading the other reviews l'm wondering if we were just lucky but this was the best fish and chips l've had for ages and fish and chips is my favourite naughty food treat. In... More

the people running this place need to employ better staff instead of putting so much pressure on the Juniors there. in peak summer time took 90 minutes to get our order. they ran out of tomato and tartare sauce

The fish and chips were good, not great, but good. The prices are not good or great, they are ridiculous. There have done a good job renovating the servo and the cooking area is very clean, they are also licensed. But did I mention the prices are ridiculous.

We have had fish & chips from Gilligans a few times but haven't found their grilled fish to be that good. I don't believe it's the best choice for fish & chips in Barwon Heads.

We had dinner here last weekend and it was really great. The batter was crispy and the fish delicious. A great find.
