“agree best fish and chips in town served with a smile”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Cannot argue with other reveiwers and having got fish & chips from here and other places, so far it is still the best and our favourite for several years - it is where we get fish and chips for all visitors who come to Portsmouth. Very highly recommended. The premises are always immaculate, the staff polite and efficient, and the cooking perfect with batter to die for.
Served in a box which makes it easy to sit by the beach and enjoy the sunset...

“Cant be beaten”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

This is the best fish & chips in Portsmouth! A bit pricey but totally worth it. The chips are golden brown and arent sopping with oil like many fish and chip shops in the area. You would think that all the fish & chips in Portsmouth would be excellent seeing as this is a sea side town, but that is not the case!

We made the mistake of going to Ospreys in Albert Road after thinking that we could do better than Deep Blue. What a mistake - Ospreys was dirty, dingEy, fish with no taste, greasy chips and staff that had no idea what they were doing. Dont even get me started on the chip shop with no name on Fort Cumberland Road - Vile!

Deep Blue wins every time. More fool me for looking for better - this IS the BEST !

“Best fish n chips in Hampshire”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

The most expensive fish and chips in Portsmouth and with every reason. Exceptional food, very high level of customer service a 5 star food hygiene rating and 10% armed forces discount! We eat from here at least once a month plus whenever friends or family are visiting, they insist. I think we have to bypass 3 other fish n chip joints to get to this one, nuff said...
