This place was absolutely excellent for fish and chips. No frills dining with picnic tables at the harbour side but the food was superb. It was rather busy but that goes to show how good the food is. If you want fantastic food at a...very reasonable price, this is the place.More

Everything about Bobby's is great. Location, staff, service and serving size are all you would expect. Chips are good and fish cooked well. The one thing that lets it down is the oily batter. I have been three times over the last 18 months, always...the same. Maybe it needs draining longer. When I worked in the area between 10 and 15 years ago the batter was way better.More

Not too sure what those other people were talking about saying they are disappointed, in my 20 years of going to this place, it is PRIMO!!!!

We had lunch today and the fish and chips were as good as ever. Large portions of crunchy beautifully cooked fish, with extra scallops as they were a bit small. One portion of chips was ample for 2 good appetites. Good friendly service and not...long to wait, despite it being busy. We sat at an outside table in the sun, watching a fishing boat come in and berth while eating. We will be back.More

Exceptional service and the best fresh seafood! A must stop! We ordered all fresh fish, scallops and prawns and we were not disappointed. Absolutely delicious.

Generous portions, chips OK. But the fish was to die for. We’ve eaten a lot of takeaway fish in our time, and we both agree this was the best we’ve had. Cooked extremely well, with crisp, light batter. Yum!

Very well cooked fish and chips. The half serving of chips was perfect size for me. Well priced and quick service too.

The best spot for fish and chips on Tauranga. The fish meal (available before 11am) is super amazing if you are willing to have such a huge meal for brekkie). I would recommend this place to all seafood lovers

Served by a young girl who was the rudest most impatient individual. Before I could finish my order she started serving the person behind me. She did not know the difference between calamari and squid and then yelled at me. She should not be dealing...with the public. Went around the corner to Pak and Save - got everything I needed -cheaper and great serviceMore

Great dining experience here. This was one of many trips to this fish and chips shop. The wait for food was not bad, it was great to have dinner near the water. I loved the food. The fish was delicious and well cooked, the fries...were as well and it was very filling.More
