Amazing Fish and Chips

Stopped over for a quick Fish and Chips, after an exhausting day tour. The place is so popular that u have to wait for upto 10 mins to pick up your meal. The lady at the counter warns u not to whine about the delay. The fish (Hake) was amazing and filling.

We were recommended to this fish and chip shop as reputed to be quick and tasty. What a let down. There was no King George whiting so we had a the special of battered flathead and chips for $24. At that price we shared 1 serve. Service was no not friendly but was quick. No doubt food is prepared to... More

My family and I just had dinner from there and it was awful! The range of food was extremely limited, the service was rude, the fish overcooked, and the price was over the top. This is the problem with not having any competition in the area. We also got a few pizzas next door - they were great! Give the... More

We were here on a cruise and the line was well out the door for this place. We ordered fish and chips and were not disappointed well worth the wait. The chairs and tables are very minimal however you could sit across the road and look out over the water.

Kangaroo Island isn't food heaven, this you should keep in mind when selecting your restaurant for lunch or dinner. Therefore 'Fish' is a very good place for a down-to-earth dinner where you don't spend a fortune for rubbish. The fish was very good, the chips homemade. You can sit at tables on the sidewalk, enjoy the view towards the sea.... More

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.
