Amazing service and food. Freshest fish and beautifully cooked. We ordered 6 fish and because the fillets were smaller than average got 15. The chips were golden and crisp and we had a vegetarian spring rolll to, yummy.

The fish at Bobby's are so fresh they're still singing. Perfect batter every time and, if the fillets are a tad smaller than expected, you may find your four pieces turn into eight. They will be hot enough to make your nose run, and as tasty as only fresh fish can be. The queue might seem a bit long but,... More

This is a very popular place for locals and visitors to eat. The fish is so fresh. You can chose to have fish out of the cabinet cooked for you. The batter is crunchy and so delicious and the chips are really good. This would have to be one of New Zealand's best fish and chips - would take a... More

You can't get better than this. Sometimes the line is a bit long but that's to be expected when everything is cooked fresh.

While driving through the North Island we stopped in Tauranga and had dinner at Amphora on the Strand. We had a good time. This is a restaurant with sidewalk seating along with indoor seating. Although they have a full bar, it's also a BYOB restaurant. We sat indoors. We were in the mood for steak. They had several offerings, all... More

Great location on Tauranga's Strand . Picnic bench style seating .. The fish was lovely melt in your mouth however the chips average and the potato fritter tough and tasteless. Generous servings , pleasant staff. Be aware that there are extra charges for plastic cutlery and cups.. Everything cooked in beef fat .. Or so the signs say.

Been eating here for years, you're not going to get better fish and chips on the planet. Also good for fresh fish takeaway and great views of the harbour!

Dropped by for lunch since I was staying nearby. There was quite a queue when I arrived but didn't have to wait too long before being served and the a while more before getting my pack of fish, half scoop of chips, a scallop and one seafood kebab. Ate at the table outside for the scenery but risk "mine-mine birds"... More

Stopped by on a Thursday evening, it was quite busy but didn't take long to place our order & for it to be ready & it was well worth the wait. They cook in beef fat which I think makes the difference, the chips were cooked nicely & the fish was really nice, I don't know what fish it was... More
