Our first night in Hokitika and we decided to have a cheap and cheerful meal. The options were $4 for elephant fish, $7 for gurnard and $10 for blue cod, per piece! We decided to have gurnard and once we got our order we took...it down by the beach. Well, talk about disappointed - I’m sure our fish had been frozen because it was yuk and dry!!! Chips were ok. We wondered if we should of had the elephant fish (shark), it may have been fresh. Would never go back. So disappointing.More

A popular place going by the numbers coming and going. We got in early so it wasn't too bad. Great Fish in nice batter with good chunky type chips. Variations available like paua fritter which good according to the water.

Excellent fish and chips. The chips were the best I have had for a long time. Also the fish burgers were really nice. I loved the beautiful view of the river and mountains. Kids liked the hot dogs. Lots of options including kumara chips.

Waited briefly for our freshly cooked fish and chips and took them on the spit to enjoy overlooking the sea. A real seaside treat with proper, tasty fish and chips. Made the vending special.

Great friendly customer service as expected on the west coast, tidy establishment and good menu selection.. but that's where it ended. Microwaved then over cooked steak in my burger. Soggy bun and old lettuce. Small average tasting fish and average batter.while a good amount of...chips they were under cooked. 2 star wouldn't recommend.More

Visited early evening, quite busy with locals which was a god sign. Had chips and a fish burger..... With chicken salt on the chips which was nice. The fish burger was very good and excellent value. Chips also good. Asked for a chip form which...they had. Sat outside on the seating o we looking the river which was an excellent spot. Note they don't take cards other than from NZ, so bring some cash.More

The best fish n chips I have ever had in 60 years. The fish was thick and beautiful, the batter perfectly cooked, the crab stick thick and juicy and perfectly cooked and the chips were golden and just right. We had the ordinary fish but...their are plenty of fish choices.Top points for this riverside fish n chip shop.More
