“It's just ok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Bit disappointed after reading great reviews about this place and looking for really good quality food down at the harbour. Sadly the food didn't live up to my expectations. Service was great and at least the staff were honest when asked if the fish was fresh. It wasn't and it was frozen. Not sure why at a place next to the ocean in the middle of summer? Got an extra price of fish which was good as 1 was far too strong tasting. The hotdog at $3 was a complete disapponent as it was a mass produced variety and not battered on site. It was same as you get at a fair ground or show day with thick batter. Chips were good however. Such a shame as for the prices charged I would expect much higher quality good as it is certainly not cheap. Up to $7.50 for a piece of fish.

“The Best Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Great fish and chips and only 50 meters from the waterfront to eat them.

I honestly think these may have been the best Fish and Chips I've ever had.

Not the cheapest you will find but the extra cost is worth it when you get them - beautiful.

Top tip - grab a bottle of local wine (amongst the best in the world anyway) and eat and drink down by the water somewhere.

“Best fish and chips (go for the Kumaru!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

Delicious fried fish (I had the cod) without all the grease of traditional fish and chips. They were light, fluffy and delicious! But for us, the Kumaru chips stole the show. So good! Also, FYI - the sign on the outside of the building doesn't say Kiwi takeaways, it just says something like "fish & chips."
