“Great fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Grabbed fish and chips 4 times in the month we were on the island. The fish is excellent. Ok the chips are frozen chips but they are cooked really well and nice too and really crispy too. I have had real potato chips at other places that are soggy yuch !!! We had a large fish and chips the first time but that was too much so after that we had small fish suppers which were always cooked fresh and lovely. Cant see how this is expensive when you compare it to some of the very nice but overpriced restaurants in the town. It is what it is, a very good fish and chip van. Eat them on the harbour watcjing the sunset! Wonderful and cheap as chips to me !

“Convenient but a bit disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We really wanted to have fish and chips on the front at Tobermory and the Pier Fish and Chip Van seemed to fit the bill. It was OK - expensive, with small portions, and frankly a bit pre-cooked and disappointing. You can't argue with the view though...

“Quick Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Beautiful light crispy batter surrounding the Haddock cooked to perfection with a few chips super quick food not very keen on the polystyrene box or the price of a scallop £6 ! for one but a good selection of other food and judging by the queue I wasnt the only fan
