Such a lovely place, and the lovely man, Kevin, who served me chips for free and then let me take out fish and chips "on credit" since I didn't have my wallet. Fresh, tender, perfect Fish and thick, perfectly textures chips. You Just completely forget...More

Genuine friendly service. Huge size pieces of fish. Real value for money. Himalayan salt, apple cider vinegar choice. Lots of lemon and home-made sauce tartare.

Standard enough fish and chips, portion of chips was small for the price paid, and fish was overcooked. Nicer places in the area to eat

Best fish and chips I ever had. Very clean cooking and eating area, been there three times, really fresh fish, always fresh cooking oil (fish not soaked with oil-crispy), person preparing food wears gloves. I know what I am talking about, I am qualified chef,...More

On par with McDonaghs in Galway this is authentic fish and chips at its best. Cod, hake and haddock were available and the wait time was less than 15 mins even though the place was busy. You can also eat in or take out.

"Kenmare, in Co Kerry, has its unfair share of places to eat, but you'll miss one of its finest attractions if you confine yourself to the restaurants that feature in guide books. Wharton's Traditional Fish & Chips, in the town centre, is a gem. My cod was encased in the finest, lightest batter, into which crushed black peppercorns had been incorporated. It was so fresh I swear I saw it twitch as it hit the oil. The chips are hand-cut from potatoes that are, amazingly, chosen for their "fryability". And they have cider vinegar if you fancy a change from the stuff you usually get in chippers..." Tom Doorley (Irish Times)
