Restaurant details
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

How can you claim to be the best fish and chip shop in STH Australia and have won awards when you are told cant order more than minimum chips (Family of 10)and you have run out of potato cakes by 5.30 pm. For a tourist coming from Victoria this is poor..

Over $10 for take-away for one - chips and a piece of smelly, bony "K.G. whiting" the size of a small flathead tail.
Total rip-off with a phony smile and a "have a good day".

Since leaving England I haven't had a proper bit of battered fish... until I visited the Original Victor Harbor Fish Shop! It was lovely and crispy batter on a really nice piece of King George Whiting. Nice enough chips and they had vinegar too! My partner had a lovely big piece of Garfish. Yum!

The chips are thick so the texture is great. Fish is on the small side. It is kind of expensive for a fish and chip place.

Get the fish basket. Some of the best stuff youll eat in a basic fish shop, and well-priced. Their "cheap" wine was very satisfying (try the white) and my King George Whiting was excellent, if a little overpriced, as that was when I started noting how much cheaper it is to order from the counter and take out, which is a good option on a sunny day.
