“Spot on haddock and chips”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch today with the family. I had the haddock meal which was so fresh tasting it was a delight. The others had cod and nearly ate all the (generous) portions.

Two pots of tea with a single bag in each pot would have been nice along with more milk, rather than the two tea bags in one pot. But, only a minor niggle as they topped us up with hot water.

Love the lemon squeezers; they are worth a visit alone.

“Fantastic value for money”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

We had the meal deal, everything included for a very reasonable price, lovely happy staff. Cod is fantastic but my fave is haddock. Happy to book table for you, good idea if there are a few of you. Well recommend a visit.

“VERY VERY GOOD”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

in one word..... WOW....when this place first opened i thought they were mental trying to go up against the Almighty cod who are clearly very good at what they do. Do you know what this place is brilliant, Very Very good food. A little bit pricey if you sit in but i suppose you have to pay that bit extra if you want service. If you are visiting Seaton then this would be my number 1 stop for fish and chips. Keep up the great quality.

“Well impressed...”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Visited "Fish Face" after hearing about their awards & safe to say we were not disappointed.

I would probably recommend booking a table as we arrived Saturday tea time to a full cafe & only 1 table left. Greeted by friendly & welcoming staff and acknowledged straight away. When the girl took out order she explained a party had arrived shortly before us so waiting time for food was a little longer than normal - completely understandable & even more impressed that we were forewarned as opposed to waiting, wondering where our food was. Drinks served fast even though the two girls where rushed of their feet & what looked like around 15/20 tables to manage.

Fish & Chips meal deal & a pensioners special arrived just short of 15 mins (which in fact is no wait at all) food served in a quirky basket & cooked to perfection. I will most definitely be recommending this place to family & friends.

“Fish fritters are such a disappointment!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

I once tried fish and chips here and they were lovely! However, the fish fritter was such a disappointment as the batter was soggy :(
