This is undoubtedly the best fish and chip shop near the beach. Freshly cooked food, large portions and very reasonable prices.Be prepared to queue - this chipper is so popular you'll often find long queues. Believe me it's worth the wait!

Delicious. I don't eat fish but seeing the crisp, short batter and the golden colour when they heave the fish from the fryer, makes me wish I did. You can can see the chips are fresh made from real spuds and they taste lovely - add salt and of course vinegar.

Few of us got something to eat and the only thing going in the bin was the paper. €10 for fish and chips and a can and you can't have any complaints it's so filling , even the birds go mad for it lol. Polite service for an extremely busy spot. If your hungry and looking for something filling, tasty... More

Fish and chips, drink and dip €10.00. Was beautiful, place was completely packed, queue was out into the street. Not long to wait and food was superb. Lovely sitting along the promenade watching the world go by.

I have eaten from here many times over the years and have always been impressed hence why I kept going back however the last time I visited (and it will be the last time I do) I was horrified at how I was treated when I found a long hair in the batter of my fish. I quietly and politely... More

If there are no other fish and chips in the area then go here. Otherwise the chips were tasteless and the fish was just a 6 out of 10. We specifically went here on the recommendation and were disappointed. So, I am going with it was just okay and that is all. I don't really regret it, but I would... More
