first off, I could'nt believe this place when I first tried it, for so long I have searched for a traditional fish & chip shop that actually lived up to its name and finally I have found it! the food was unbelievable! Huge golden chunky chips just as advertised and giant portions of crispy battered fresh cod and a rare sight.....homemade tartare sauce! I thought I was being awkward asking a ream of questions about the menu but the friendly young girl serving me politely answered everyone offering suggestions to what I should try and recommending scampi as her favourite since she started working when the shop first opened!! This for me added a very personal touch and i couldn't believe how helpful she was! when we finally decided on the cod and scampi she informed me exactly how long it would take (which she had to the second) and asked me to take a seat and she would deliver the food down to us. The food arrived swiftly beautifully presented in wooden baskets with a warm smile along with lemon wedges and tartare sauce. Towards the end of our meal we were greeted once more and asked how everything was and was there anything further she could do for us.
I was genuinely take back by the supreme quality of the food and the excellent service.
I now visit at least twice a month for my scampi and chips and love to see I am remembered everytime!!

This Fish & Chip shop opened a few years ago in Salthill. My family have enjoyed its traditional fare several times. We especially love their scampi and fresh cod, which comes in a really light crispy batter, which is freshly battered to order. Its refreshing to see the raw fish being hand battered in front of you. They occasionally offer different fish like hake, haddock & my favourite, ray. The service is always very pleasent. They have opened a second outlet on Forster Street, which is equally as good.

Dear LuvToTravelAndEat,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to write your review of our take-away restaurant. I was especially heartened to note your appreciation of the fresh fish battered and cooked before you as this was one of our main aims when we developed our stores - fresh as fresh can be!

We are continuing to develop our menu offerings and may even consider a grilled/fried option in the future as more and more people look for gluten-free options. We hope we can wow you with these as well!

Warm regards

Dear Elav,

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your lovely review of our store. We pride ourselves on trying to provide the freshest and tastiest food possible so to hear such glowing praise makes me believe we have gone above and beyond expectations - exactly what any hospitality provider should be aiming for!

As for your four legged friend he/she is welcome to water any time and if you are visiting us early we often have fresh fish scraps (great for a dogs coat) which we happily give to dog and cat owners free of charge.

Warm regards
