Well I think we tried everything on holiday, Spanish, Chinese, Indian and English.
We had read the comments about this place in the guest book and planned on trying it for Good Friday early evening as it was quite far from the villa.
It was about 5pm and was very busy, but the granddaughter spotted the giraffe on the front which she wanted to have a ride, so we actually sat on the front terrace.
The waitress pointed out there was a special price for eating early evening do we all ordered fish & chips (a craving we sometimes get) even the little girl.
My husband was going to order the large fish but was glad he didn't when the meal arrived. It was huge, but absolutely delicious. Think the chips were home cooked, where everywhere else we had been were frozen.
Everybody so friendly again, the lady even paid for a ride on the giraffe so we could have a little peace.
We actually went back the following week for the five euro lunch special.
Great food, staff and good prices.

Hi
Thanks for your comments, we really do appreciate it. Glad you enjoyed your meal and the litle girl enjoyed the giraffe, nice of one of the girls to pay for her to have a ride, they are all nice staff.
The fish are quite large but as you say delicious. Maybe if you come again you could share one.
The early menu is available 4pm-6pm daily.
Thanks for trying us again for lunch time, and thank you once again for taking the time to comment. Hope to see you again.

We went to this takeaway twice during a recent holiday in Spain. We were buying for 6 adults and we were surprised at how the cost added up... over Euro50 each time. You do however get a bottle of wine thrown in for any order over Euro20. The food was generally excellent and the portion sizes were HUGE! Even a small cod was too much to eat. On the second visit the chips were overcooked, but they still tasted great. Will go back if in the area in the future.

Hi
Thank you for your comments, we are glad you enjoyed the food. Sorry if you found it a little expensive. All our fish is very high standard, as is freshly frozen at sea, then exported to us. As you can imagine this is an expensive process, the other alternative is to use the fish from Spain, which is not suitable for a fish & chip establishment. That's why we make sure the fish is of a good size, sometimes people find it big enough to share.
It's a pity you didn't try the lunch menu, 6 of you could have eaten for 30 euros, that would have been a choice of up to 12 home made dishes i.e. lasagne, chilli, quiche, salads, pasta dishes, curries, stroganof, etc. all served with a glass of wine, small beer or soft drink for only 5 euros. Or a 2 course for 7.50 euros. Maybe you could try next time.
Once again thank you for your comments, and hope to see you again.

This is a popular chip shop just outside the centre of town. The family that own it are lovely as are the waitresses! Nothing is ever too much trouble and they have a wide range of choices on the menu including veggie options. The homemade curries are especially great!

Hi
Thanks for that.
Have had requests for some time now to open on a Sunday for breakfast, so we thought we would give it a go. It has actually been quite popular the 2 Sunday's we've been open.
Glad you enjoyed and hope to see you again to soak up the hangover, haha.

We have been visiting Moraira for the last 5 years now (twice per year) and by luck found 'David's Fish & Chip Diner' on our first visit to the area. Food and service is second to none, breakfasts are great value, lunchtime specials also, been here on our own with family and even had a few takeaways! Usually get a parking space right outside but can get busy at lunchtimes. Even my daughter loves Dave's foot long sausage! lol :) Also has free WiFi that I have not seen anyone comment on....

Will be visiting the area again in May (5 weeks and counting!) so looking forward to seeing everyone and my breakfasts!

Keep up the good work guys!

Hi
Thank you for the comments and great to see you again. Nice of you to write a review.
Your right, I don't think anybody has mentioned the WI FI, it is an added bonus and one we always forget to mention ourselves. Does come in handy when you are on holiday.
Thanks for the compliment on the service, will pass that on.
The breakfasts are really popular as they are really good value and served quick. Glad you enjoy.
You will have to get your daughter to try the DFC, if she likes Kentucky she will love it.
Anyway, thanks once again, and see you in May. 1st stop breakfast??? Haha.
