“Disappointing again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Another disappointing visit to what is meant to be an popular Akaroa eatery.
Turned up at 6.30 and they had only one type of fresh fish available - Hoki. Everything else was frozen. I assume it was because of Easter and not being able to get fresh fish over.
Anyway, we went for paua patties which we couldn't eat and a hot dog which was rubbery inside.
Chips were good looking at the positives and staff were friendly.

“The best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

You know it's great when all the people eating there are from New Zealand, and you have to stand in a long line to order. The fish of the day was great, and came wrapped in paper. Well worth the wait!

“Wonderful fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Incredible fresh, white fish (Orange Roughy) in light, crisp batter. Cooked to order. Loved it! A 'must do' experience when visiting beautiful Akaroa.
There are tables inside & outside for the use of customers.

“Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

The local cat was so sweet, but I had nothing for it. Grilled fish and chips was good satisfying and not too dear

“Great Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

These are fantastic fish and chips - sure they are expensive but even if they are really busy the quality is always the same.
