“a classic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

we were a group of 9 argentinian travel agents going to manly beach and read about the classic food there: fish and chips. So we tried this place and the result was fantastic.
The girls were so nice with us (unexperienced with this kind of food), they explained all the different plates and we shared a big table they have inside.
I tried the hoki with fries and was great

“BEST FISH&CHIPS, BURGERS, PRAWNS AND CALAMARI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I've been in this place more than 2 times, alone and with friends. Everything was just delicious and with a good price. Big Fishburger, cheap fish&chips extra tasty and big plates. Fresh prawns, mussels, and healthy grilled fish. The classic garden salad is different from other places. It's a lot and perfect flavored. Good cus-cus. Friendly staff and good service.
It's not expensive at all. If you like to spend less you can buy frozen fish&chips from Aldi.

“New England Clam Chowder to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Excellent atmosphere, excellent service, excellent food. We loved the New England Clam Chowder - as good as the Boston recipe. The ambience and décor were great and very appropriate. Will definitely go again!

“A Very Pleasant Fish and Chippery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

On the Manly Esplanade this is a reasonably priced seafood cafe with an excellent range of fish to choose from. We shared a platter of salt and pepper squid, some chips and a salad with a very nice Pinot Grigio. Service was friendly and efficient. The prices were reasonable and the location across the road from the beach made it even more enjoyable.

“Nice but too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Good food but definitely targeted for tourists. For a special occasion, why not. But if you have a family of 5 to feed, go around the corner and there is another fresh fish & chips shop which is better value for money.
