Great service, not too much of a wait, crisp chippies, delicious fish, would definitely go back. Beautiful surroundings with wharf parks and beaches close by to eat your 'catch of the day'

Always get a great bit of snapper here. Very busy but fast and efficient service. Had fish and chips here sometimes and they are equally as good, thanks guys.

Okay,so after hearing how good the fish is I was really amped on trying some nice fried fish. So I've ordered twice from the Strand and once from the Papamoa branch which all had the same result, oily as fish. Chips were lovely but next...time I will fry my fish at home..More

Made an order for two fish and Chips with sauce. Had a bit of a wait but was it worth it. The fish was melt in your mouth superb, they were huge more like two fish at other places. The chips were crispy and scoop...big enough to put other places to utter shame. Amazing meal highly recommended.More

Such an amazing selection of fresh fish caught from straight out of the Bay so it couldn't get fresher than that, it can be quite busy but that just shows how popular this Fish & Chip restaurant is

As the title says, Bobbys is a long standing institution in the Bay. They do the best fish n chips around. Fresh fish and crunchy chips - can’t ask for much more!

Sit at the wharf overlooking our brilliant harbour, watch people fish, be with people from all walks of life and enjoy Bobby’s fish and chips which are yummy.
