“Excellent Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Third time we have visited Playa Blanca this year - and each time we have eaten the Fish and Chips. A very friendly welcome from Mandy and great to talk football with Geoff. Excellent food - great to sit outside eating fish and chips with a view of the sea.

“Very good chippy...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We decided to have a chippy takeaway after reading all the excellent reviews on trip advisor.....we have walked past it so many times but this time we went in.the service was so friendly and welcoming and kids made very welcome. The food was lovely not full of grease or thick lumpy batter...first class chips and light crispy batter.....we were asked if we were going down to the beach and offered cutlery,napkins etc....we will definately be back....thanks....

“What a great chippy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This would be a good chippy anywhere but to come across such a find in Lanzarote was a very pleasant surprise. The food was really good and the service was excellent. When you've just had enough of restaurant food night after night and want something good but simple, then you can't go wrong with Place in the Sun.

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We came across this chippy on a day trip from Fuerteventura and read outside that it was voted the best chip shop in the Canaries by Tripadvisor and found out for ourselves why.The cod and chips were spot on and my partner had the chicken curry and chips and she said it was lovely. if you are in the area dont walk by, give it a try. You wont be disappointed.
