“Great Fish and Chips in Torremolinos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Best fish and chips outside of UK Not the best of outlooks and the restaurant is very small but sit outside and just enjoy the food.Owned by husband and wife team who take turns in cooking and both do an equally good job of the frying.Dont be put off by the surroundings just go for the food you wont be disappointed

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

As an english traveller from Luton, I had a very good meal with the first real english cup of tea.
Although it looks like a standard fish & chip shop down a narrow alleyway, it is a short walk from
the station. The owner makes you very welcome and is english, it may not look very grand but
food quality, prices and owner more than make up for this. I highly recommend this to any UK
traveller.

“Good Chippy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Had fish, chips & peas and tasted like any proper chippy in England. Had to wait a while for it but well worth the wait.

“Good old Chish & Fips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Nice piece of Cod & Chips and not too pricey, it's a bit hidden round the back, and there were works going on nearby at the time of visit
