It's my favorite fish & chip shop. Their huge fish burger is also must as well as oysters and scallops.

We were blown away by the quality of food and the service at this small family run restaurant. My husband had the fish and chips, I had soup and the night's special. Neither of us have had better food anywhere. If only they had a branch here in Florida!

I'm a truck driver and i've eaten fish and chip meal all over New Zealand and i have to say this place is number 1 not just for the meals but the friendly service from the family run restaurant. I've tried most of the meals and they can cook a mean steak too but if you want the best blue cod meal in NZ then this is the place to go ,i have been visiting the Westshore for a few years now.

I ate in the restaurant and had a wonderful meal. I had daily the special which was a fish I've never had before...a lovely white fish that was grilled, served on a spinach salad and drizzled with wasabi mayo...absolutely perfect. The service was excellent and friendly. I will definitely come back to the Westshore Fish Cafe!

Thank you for your review.
I'm pleased you enjoyed your meal and the service at our restaurant.
The Tuscan Grilled Gurnard is a "healthy" substitute for Fish & Chips which shows to be very popular especially over summer.
Thank you for sharing your experience with others on TripAdvisor!

I recently went to this establishment and was a bit worried as I do not normally like fish and chips (normally too greasy and small portions for a large price) I was pleasantly surprised when I found a large portion for what I paid and it was the best fish and chips I've had. Defiantly be back when i'm back in the area. Well worth a visit. The chowder was delicious and staff friendly and helpful. A+ to this team
