You exquisite, you could be mistaken for thinking that from the outside that it might only be a bog standard fish & chippy? Its far from... More

This little gem on Triq it-Touristi serves the best fish I've had from a fish shop. The fish is lightly battered so it doesn't have that greasy chip shop taste and it doesn't sit heavy in your stomach! The chips on the other hand were not as good - they were undercooked. Typical chip shop interior and friendly staff. Would... More

Very generous portions, quick service and friendly staff. Very popular so needed to wait before space was available inside.

We were recommended to this eatery by some friends and ended up disappointed. I love my cod and chips and regularly eat at Squires of Braunton who serve nothing but cod loins. As soon as I saw the price of cod and chips at Sea Shells I realised that something was not quite right. It costs a lot to transport... More

I tried this Fish & Chip Shop and I was not disappointed. What it lacks in ambience, it makes up for it in food and very reasonable budget prices. Most of the food is marked around the 5 Euros price range. The menu is varied and those who do not like fish and chips can opt for burgers, pasta or... More

We had fish and chips there, after we passed each night and found the place full we thought it must been good and decided to give it a go. Can't think why it's full all the time, the food was edible but that was all. The chips were frozen and the fish mushy, wouldn't go back.
