We, three of us, had a light lunch here today. The setting is divine, and the fish and chips freshly prepared and delivered in paper, like back in the day! They have some tables outside so you can sit and share, and wonder you are far from the madding crowd. At least that was the way it was on a... More

close to caravan park and tavern. Over looks the ocean just beautiful. You can take your fish & chips to the wharf and eat it there or pull out a blanket and enjoy you feed on the beach there is also a park you can relax in, next to to the tavern too

Lunch today at Patonga. Call it a personal thing I didn't like the batter - full of dill and parsley. NO WARNING. Fish was well cooked and the serving was very generous. It would have been helpful if there had been something on the menu saying that the batter was flavoured. Definitely good value. Maybe ask for plain batter -... More

We rode down to Patonga on a Sunday morning and decided to have fish and chips for lunch at the Patonga Hotel Cafe. Obviously the scene and views here are beautiful. Our crumbed flathead fillets were to die for and the chips hot, fresh and tasty. The staff were great and service was quick considering how busy they were. A... More

Must say the greatest Fish and Chips on the Central Coast NSW. So much to choose from on the menu. We ordered large chips and the 8 pieces of fish (little size) between the 3 of us. Wow the size of the meal that we received was amazing. So fresh and yummy. Plenty of seating out the front over looking... More

Great service and such an amazing location. We enjoyed a nice sit out the front and enjoyed a coffee and cold drink. Definitely worth a visit and next time I will order some food.

Went on a Sunday and was told I had to wait for 30 minutes which I agreed, our fish was really hot but the chips were luke warm. It seems they don't cook to order and obviously the chips are cooked in huge batches. Place does not look very clean and staff should wear hats and gloves when handling food.... More

Please read this review with some caution Sunday was a busy day and we served 100's of happy customers - there are many reasons people write reviews of this kind (some include the competition, unhappy ex-staff member or disgruntled resident) - it is important to note that this person has not written another review which always raises a red flag....

Had fish & chips for lunch, the food was fresh, prices were good. It is opposite the beach at Patonga and next to the pub. Great for a reasonable priced lunch.

The hamburgers with the lot were so big they were hard to pick up. There are lots of special options and fish fillets specials on offer. 2 Hamburgers with the lot a Bulmers Cider and Coke Zero for $30 is about the same that you would spend on a special lunch at a club. The location is good the hamburgers... More
