Great fish and chips

Great fish and chips with above average in every way except no EFTPOS available. Price is above average as is the quality of the food. Almost everything is fresh daily Kangaroo Island produce and they close when sold out. Go for an early lunch or miss out as they may be closed.

The no nonsense chef at Fish prepares 5 star quality take away that has to eaten to be believed. It's not cheap, but it is amazing. The salad dressing is sensational. The salt and pepper prawns so tasty and well balanced that I could eat a bucketful of them. The tartare sauce with home made mayonnaise is a taste sensation!... More

On australia day my family went to Kangaroo Island to celebrate my wife's birthday, after visiting different attractions in the island we were ready for a nice local dinner. To our surprise as we thought it was a very touristic destination, we could not find many places open in the main town of the island (of course it was Australia... More

With the exceptional experience working at The Ivy in London Sue Pearson has focused all her expertise on preparing the best fish and chips and salad from South Australia's pristine environment. What a treat...do not miss it as you leave the ferry

The rude owner does not compensate the fish and chips. The fish was fresh and good, but not so much as worth of the bad service.

What an amazing little fish and chips shop in Penneshaw. Thanks the owner for feeding my fussy daughter during our week long stay (not an easy task), she loved the whiting and the trevally packs. She normally refuses to eat the chips from standard fish and chips shops (soggy most of the time), but she finished every bit of the... More

The blurb on the wall of this Kangaroo Island eatery states 'if they gave Michelin stars for fish and chips, FISH of Penneshaw would earn a good three!' Well clearly I was at the wrong place because the meal we had was ordinary to say the least. OK, good chips I'll give them that but the batter on the ridiculously... More

Salt and pepper squid had a peanut type sauce over it which I thought was rather odd. I was not too impressed with the taste at all and was a bit confused if there was a mistake in the order. There needs to be a write up on the menu board about what they are serving to avoid confusion. The... More

Fresh fish with the best batter thus far! Had many F&C in Adelaide and on the way towards Melbourne, and this is still the best and unforgettable, though slightly more expensive

Had dinner from here our first night and enjoyed every mouthful. Fast, friendly and efficient service, was nice and hot when we got home to enjoy it with a glass of wine.
