Good Heavens, a CHIPPY!!!

Not a chippy in the English style but a chippy nonetheless. Serves salads, curry, chicken, omelettes, various fish, chips, mushy peas. there are several tables inside and a few outside, also serves beer and wine and soft drinks, tea and coffee and all at very, very, reasonable prices

I love the fish & chips here - NO SOGGY BATTER !! Very small restaurant serving a range of foods not just fish. There is seating for 28 people. We had Cod, Chips & Mushy peas for just under 5 euros each :-)

Absolutely foul fish. Advertised as cod/haddock but was pink with jelly texture. The table next to us sent hers back as I guess she thought it was undercooked but it was just the kind of fish. Myself and my partner were both sick that night and that's the only thing we had eaten

Absolutely brilliant - the fish is supplied by the local fish market and is perfect every time. Would recommend the cod and chips with mushy peas. The owner and the staff make you feel so welcome. The shop might be small but has loads of personality and quality. Don't go to Qawra or Buggiba without a visit.

When we first saw someone eating the fish and chips, they looked really good, so we decided to visit it one afternoon. Service was ok, it looked nice when it came, but it went down hill after that. Batter was soft, then when you got to the fish it was grey, it definitely wasn't haddock as advertised, I couldn't eat... More

Cannot believe the more recent good reviews as the food was terrible in February 2015! Mushy fish and tasteless southern fried chicken. Be wary! Staff were ok though on a positive note.

a fish and chip shop that hides a surprise. This is not just a fish and chip shop but a true fish restaurant with an excellent range of Fresh Local fish. Do not be deceived by the appearance you are in for a Pescatarian delight inside.
