Not worth for the price

the fish was too much fried, the scallops were ok but nothing special, the prawns were good - fresh made but in total too expensive

For an island synonymous with abundant and fresh seafood, we found it pretty difficult to access the daily catch on KI. That was until we stumbled across Sue and her hole-in-the-wall FISH in Penneshaw, serving up fresh KI fish, chips etc. until sold out. We arrived just after 2pm, disappointed (and hungry) that the Penneshaw Hotel had closed its kitchen.... More

a little expensive for take away? but not for this: fresh, locally caught fish- none of those unethical monster rigs' frozen product used here! Light crisp batter, perfectly cooked potato chips, lightly sprinkled with coarse salt... honest to goodness, straight up ingredients to compliment a variety of seasonal seafood.

I live out country SA and can get fish & chips cheaper & more there! The fish $3.50 to $4 and $10 chips that feed all 4 of us. Here it only feeds 2 people. The fish tasted lovely & fresh but $9 for a piece of flake and $10 per piece of garfish was pretty steep.

I'm not much of a fish n chips eater but my husband who comes from the north of England is. These Fish n chips were so good we went back for seconds while waiting for the ferry back to the mainland. Probably not such a good move had we known how rough the crossing was to be but great food... More

It is seriously good. Its a small serve of king george whiting but it is tasty, and these were the best chips I've seen for some time. We also ordered the deep fried scallops which were fat and luscious and oozing juice. This isn't good value (even by Island Standards!) at $20 a serve, but the quality of the food... More

Being vegetarian, I didn't eat here but my other half went in here and bought his dinner one night. Menu changes daily depending in what is available. Bit pricey but at the end of the day my other half was in love and very happy with his meal. Recommended :)

between 7th and 11th September this venue looked like it was closed for business. or in renovation mode. Only place we could get fresh seafood was adjoining the caltex at kingscote - they always had good seafood available and at reasonable prices. We had sea food from there 3 out of the 4 days on the island. Tried the oyster... More

Lovely, fresh foods, beautifully cooked. Very limited menu, and prices shockingly higher than mainland fish and chip shops. Absolutely worth a try, though :-)

I heard wonderful things about 'Fish'. I ordered salt and pepper calamari and was shocked at how horrible it was. It was covered in a horrible sweet cinnamon sauce/coating. Chips didn't have enough salt. Was charged $17 for something I wouldn't now buy for $3. It was disgusting and I ended up throwing it out. Friendly service and in a... More
