We didn't mind the plastic chairs.The fish and chips were really good. The service friendly, the drinks cool and the view of the sunset fantastic.

“Unique location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

What a fabulous location to sit with family and friends and eat really excellent fish and chips while the sun sets. The only downside is the uncomfortable collection of odd plastic garden chairs and stools.

“Good fish & chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Interestingly set in a dry docked old boat, Shippy's provides good basic fish and chips that comes wrapped in paper, even when you eat in. The fish and the chips are priced separately as are sauces, which I found annoying. The food was good, and the wine was excellent. If you're looking for good fish and chips, Shippy's delivers

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

Sit at your table on the deck and have great fish and chips in paper. If it was a restaurant with plates etc. it would spoil the experience. Well cooked and although not huge portions they were more than adequate, good value for money and the beer is not expensive. Our Paihia friends use this fish shop as do other locals, not a tourist trap.
Fantastic evening views.
