We visited here last year and were very disappointed because the food was very over-ccoked. We decided to give it another chance and were pleasantly surprised. The food was well cooked and tasted great

Good service, good prompt food, although a little overpriced. Chips were however amazing. They had a steady stream of customers through the door too.

Popped in here on the 5\10\16, had just been to the marine aquarium and felt a bit peckish. So we crossed the bridge and I immediately spotted that this establishment had the quality award.

There have been many claims for the title of British national dish but to many of us especially those making for the coast or returning from abroad it's Alf Tupper's training diet that help him out run the Toffs in that frantic last lap of the race that we all yearn for, quality fish and chips.

I admit to being spoilt by the food and service at the best rated fish shop in plymouth a mile away at west hoe. Food cooked to order which is promising but the service and welcome is non existent..you feel like an intruder and the servers really dont want to be there. As you wait for your food you will...

After speaking to the staff working on the shift you are talking about we think you may have mistaken Harbourside for a different outlet. There are 3 shops in total and we think you may have us confused with another shop. Kind regards Sarah (owner) More

Go here all the time. Whole family absolutely loves the fish from here. Chips are pretty standard but the fish makes it worth a visit!
