After two weeks of hotel food just had to have chips ( not American fries). Was not at all disappointed . The cod was cooked in a light batter and mushy peas were excellent. Go and have some and support a British business. Well done girls! Oh have a glass of wine whilst your food is cooked fresh for you.

Seen posters around Torremolinos advertising North Sea Cod & Haddock & this put me in the notion for a fish & chip. Eventually found it 1 street back from the main square.

Small menu including fish, chips, pasties, burgers/battered burgers, mushy peas etc all cooked to a good standard. Bottled beer available.

Lovely owner, friendly & chatty.

Small place with 4 exterior tables.

First fish & chips for 3 years and oh what a treat it was. The fish & chips are as good or better than any I've had in the UK. If you do have to wait it's because it's all cooked to order. I'd rather wait and get fresh food any day. Well done!

Good, though we had to wait a fair while for food. It tasted good, and the time it took to arrive implies that the chips were cooked to order. I was very glad that they had mushy peas! The service was friendly, the teenage girl did a good job. Just a standard chippy with a couple of tables, but the only one in Torremolinos.
