“Great fish and chips great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

I took 4 overseas students who we're staying with us for fish and chip tea. When we arrived the take away was open but the cafe had just closed. On seeing me looking in however a member of staff re- opened the cafe and welcomed us.
We all had fish and chips which were excellent and the students were so impressed they took cards to give their fellow students.
The staff took a real interest in talking to us and I would have no hesitation recommending this cafe and take away to anyone.

“Best fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

We were shocked to read the last review. We were also in the shop on Tuesday March 4th. When in Llandudno we always enjoy a meal in this cafe. The service and quality of food was excellent as usual. We noticed other customers commenting to the waitress how helpful she was and how much they enjoyed their meals. They like us said they would revisit in the future.

“Very Disapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

After reading all the good reviews we decided that seeing it was a nice sunny day 4th March 2014 we would take a drive to Llandudno and have fish and chips from Fish Tram Fish (120 mile round trip).
We ordered two fish and chip take aways , one mushy peas and one can of drink, the price was nearly £15.00 a bit expensive we thought but they claim to be the best.How wrong they are,the fish batter was hard and very greasy and the chips looked and tasted as if they were last nights warm ups. Definitely not worth the trek up the hill or the money.
Far better fish and chips can be had from the restaurants in the town, and cheaper

Thank you for your comments, we are sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to us but shocked by your comments! I was actually serving in the café when you were waiting in the take away for your order and am slightly taken a back by your 3 star for service rating as the server and fryer were both engaged in conversation with your wife while waiting for your food to be cooked, and I would describe the service you received as helpful and polite I think many people would agree in many establishments its hard to get a smile let alone be conversed with, so I would say you are being unfair with your 3 star rating.

In regards the food, in terms of the fish being hard? I take it you are referring to the batter? We cook our fish to order to ensure the batter is crisp we would hate to serve a customer a soggy battered fish hence why everything is cooked to order. Regarding the chips, these were chipped fresh on the day of your visit as we actually close on a Sunday and Monday at present so there is no possible way they could have been from the night prior and this is something we would never do. Our chips are blanched first then put in containers ready to be cooked through when orders come in, by cooking our chips in this manner we can ensure that the chips are nice and crisp on the outside and fluffy in the centre.

In relation to price, we maybe slightly more expensive than other take aways in the area but this is driven by the ingredients we use. We aim to use the best quality ingredients in producing our fish and chips but I wouldn't say we were the most expensive plus there aren't many places where two people could eat for £15.

Its unfortunate that you didn't enjoy your visit to us, but as you said we do get some great reviews from customers so its just a shame we aren't to your taste!

“Best fish 'n chips in Llandudno”

Don't go anywhere else for fish and chips. You'll find it by the Tram Station on Church Walks. There's a choice of take-away or eating in (café attached). Go with a good appetite as portions aren't small.
