“Never disappoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We regularly chose fine dine to get take away fish and chips and it never disappoints. Fish is always fresh, chips are good and portion sizes/cost is reasonable.
Staff are friendly and we continue to recommend.

“We gave them three chances!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Again we have given this fish and chip shop THREE tries; we really do attempt to give small business a go before making a negative review.

Dine Fine Takeaway Palm Beach on the Gold Coast promotes itself as the healthy alternative – restaurant food at takeaway prices. The menu is impressive; so too is all of the hype all over the walls stating the owner was senior chef for a leading airline.

You are expecting something pretty amazing.

First time we ate in. They did not have flake and so we had the hoki [New Zealand fish finger fish] and it was good but nothing special.

The second time we had flake and chips as take away. The chips were ordinary, inconsistent in their cooking, lacking that potato flavour due to the quality of the oil they were cooked in.

The fish pieces are weighed so they vary in price. They are coated with lemon pepper seasoning before the batter is applied which over-powers the delicate fish taste.

A well cooked piece of battered fish, using good quality fresh oil will not be oil logged. The batter will be crisp. With the slogan ‘the healthy alternative’ I think these people have no idea what healthy is and I do not think they really care. I say that because we went back a third time and the fish was worse than the time before. This time it resembled the type of fish you get out of can that you feed your cat. The taste of the fish was totally tainted and difficult to eat as well as being visually unappetising.

Tonight my husband asked them again to drain the fish as last time it was so oily. Will these people ever listen?

I will leave it to you to decide whether or not you would part with your money to eat their food.

The two lemon wedges were the ‘heroes’!

“the best of the best!!!! for fish and chippies on the Gold Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

This is honestly the most amazing fish and chippy on the Gold Coast. The founder was an award winning chef. He has now sold the business to one of his previous workers, I think she is a family member too, anyway the standard of food and service has not changed one bit. It offers an array of amazing pre cooked meals as well and all sorts of pre prepared yummy s that are really unusual.
