“Great Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We had rock salmon. The batter was very light and tasty. The fish was fresh and tasty whilst the twice cooked chips were and excellent. This is not a chippy in the classic sense I.e. no sausages or pies. I would recommend this establishment to anyone.

“Don't bother very rude proprietor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

We were searching the internet looking for a fish & chip shop on the island that served rock salmon.we found the Ventnor haven so decided to give it a try.all I can say is don't bother,we didn't get to try the rock because the proprietor was very rude when asked a couple of questions (she wasn't getting my money with that attitude).but all was not lost,we wandered up to the high street & found a lovely chippy (it's called THE CHIPPY) that served the most beautiful rock salmon I have ever tasted.the lady owner was very friendly & even passed on some recipes.it was also half the price of that rude woman's place.

“Up there with the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

This isn't a chippy in the classic sense, so if you want gloppy curry sauce or kebab meat, you'll be disappointed. My wife and I were impressed by the food, cooked to order by smiling staff. The twice-cooked chips were excellent, the fish fresh and tasty and the lime/coriander mayonnaise unusual from a fish shop. One of the best fish and chip places we've been to and worth the extra pound.

“Great fish and chips.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

My partner and I visited this place during our holiday in Ventnor. We both had the fish and chips at the seafront. Great location and very tasteful food.

“Ridiculous!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

Queued for 20 minutes only to be told that they didn't serve just chips. You're a fish and chip takeaway for goodness sake. Might be an idea to let customers know this by putting it on the menu at the top of the pier.
