This place has awesome fish and chips for a very good price. I once went on a fishing charter and the guys at vinnies cooked the fish I caught at a reasonable price.

1 Steak Burger....steak and mince pattie were burnt, 1 Fish Burger....the fish fillet was dry and tasteless, 6 Battered Mussels....the mussels tasted marinated in vinegar, and 6 Scallops.....that were undercooked and looked disgusting......and to top it all off this came to the low low low price of only $50.00

The service was pretty quick. Fish was fresh, but quite thick batter. Good amount of chips for how much you pay. Awesome location right across from the bay

Very good fish and chips. Good just the way i like them. Fish is excellent. $9 fish and chips or you can upgrade to snapper or dory for a little extra. Fast, fresh and very good.

We ordered food and had to wait more than 30 mins for it to be ready, only to realize afterwards that they have missed out to pack one fish and chips for which we paid for. The food was good, specially the kumara chips but I would never order from here for the poor and disappointing service.

Pretty good fish and chips, a little expensive for how much you get, and a bit tight on the chips but nonetheless tasty with good, friendly service. After our day out fishing, Vinnie's were happy to cook our kingfish, $2 a fillet of fish, cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious!

Thank Nunngo
