“Noisy and not great food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I guess I should have tried something other than their fish and chips, since most fried good does not appeal to me. The fish was mediocre and the accompanying vegetables were cooked too well. Also, this is a VERY noisy place - not conducive to visiting with friends.

“Best food in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The place is small but that is all that is small about it! The food was hot and freshly cooked. We had the catfish, fish tocos, fried shrimp and a vegetarian black beans and rice dish. The service was attentive but not over bearing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

“Best fish & chips in the area and great fish tacos too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Having been raised in England, I consider myself a connoeseur of fish & chips. This unpretentious restaurant dishes up perhaps the best I have ever enjoyed. The fish tacos are also very good. Large portions, great value, fast service and a hard- working, friendly wait staff.
