We decided to try this "place" after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. So glad we did. Service was excellent, friendly staff and the owner was charming. Made us feel very relaxed without the usual pushy mannerisms from a lot of restaurant owners. Extensive menu, we opted for the Pensioners special...light crispy cod,chips, mushy peas or bread and butter all with a choice of tea or coffee...7.90 euros. We enjoy eating local foods and sampling different things on holiday but there's only so much garlic and strong sauces a stomach can handle!! So good to find a taste of home only better than home.We even broke the rule and returned a second time!

My wife and i don't do english when abroad, but everyone said try the fish in Playa Blanca. We did the service was good the fish and chips excellent, but we thought it a bit cheeky having to pay for peas separately and sachets of sauces15 cents where in most places it is free.

We visited yesterday. The fish was moist and the batter was light and crispy, just how a battered fish should be.

Service was very good and the staff were very friendly.

Overall very good experience, give it a try.

That review a couple down is clueless!
We did the standard british thing and went abroad and then ended up looking for proper fish and chips one evening...we were suggested to come here and we weren't let down at all!
Although a bit pricey the food was lovely and the owner she was so friendly! We sat outside and like out over the ocean and tucked into mushy peas cod and chips and we were in put element!
Very nice, will visit again definitely!

Found this place after recommendation by friends. I am not a great lover of fried fish as it always leaves a greasy after taste. However, what a pleasant surprise. Freshly cooked, crisp battered fish, proper chips, ( not Pom) promptly served with a cheerful smile by friendly staff. This together with side orders of mushy peas, fresh bread and butter, tea and cold beer accompanied by cold beer made for a very satisfying "plain" English lunch which was much appreciated. We will return!
